Tile Calculation Guide


Natural Stone tiles are unique and have colour and shade variation from tile to tile depending on the block they have been cut from. Therefore it is important to buy enough tiles for your full project at the same time.

A wastage factor should also be taken into account for each project prior to ordering. This is normally 10% which should allow for cuts and any minor tile imperfections. Minor damage such as edge chipping is often caused in transit, packing or unpacking tiles, and should be expected, it is deemed normal practice for these to be used as cuts during the installation process.

Note: The table below includes the 10% tolerance.
