How To Measure Your Tiles
Here are our handy tips to help you get the all-important measure up correct. Our first tip, measure twice, in fact, three times, and always remember to order around 10% more to accommodate for cuts and any breakages during installation. We also suggest ordering some extras to store for future use should you need them to ensure the tile batches match.
Our handy tile calculator will also make your measure up even easier!
Why Do I Need To Order Extra Tiles?
That’s a great question! Extra tiles compensate for any breakages that may happen during installation that can come from tricky cuts. Extra tiles are also super handy for you in the future. Keep spare tiles in the garage or shed and you’ll thank yourself later if you want to make any changes, for example, add a powerpoint. Of course, life happens and accidents are normal! Spare tiles make life’s little accidents an easy fix.
A big reason why you should buy your tiles all in one is that they’re produced in batches and each batch has subtle differences. If you buy two different batches, the tiles could look a little different and if you had to replace any tiles in the future, we’d hate for the look of your room to change so keeping spares removes that chance.
