## How many tiles are in a box?

The number of tiles in a box varies according to the manufacturer, size of a single tile and type of tile.

Usually, the larger each individual tiles is, the less pieces come in a carton. Some boxes with porcelain tiles come with only two pieces and that is why why type of tiles matters.

## What area does one box cover?

In order to calculate the area covered by a box of tiles:

• Calculate the area covered by each tile.
• Convert the dimensions to meters then multiply the two sides by each other. For example, 20cm x 30cm tiles would be 0.06 square meters (0.2m x 0.3m).
• Multiply the area per tile by the number of tiles in the carton. For example if there are 25 pieces of the tile above in the carton, the total coverage would be 1.5 square meters (0.06 x 25)
