How To Calculate The Tile Flooring Cost Per Square Feet
Let us consider a room of size 12 ft. × 16 ft. as shown below.
Let us calculate the total cost of fixing the tile for this abovegiven room.
Given data:
Length of the room = 16ft.
Breadth of the room = 12ft.
Skirting height = 4″ = 0.33ft.
Door size = 2.5 ft × 7 ft.
Calculation:
 Area of tile flooring
= length × breadth
= 16ft. × 12ft.
= 192 sqft.
Area of skirting
= [{(2nos. × length) + (2nos. × breadth) – door width} × height]
= [{(2nos. × 16ft.) + (2nos. × 12ft.) – 2.5 ft.} × 0.33ft.]
= [ { 32ft. + 24ft. – 2.5ft.} × 0.33ft.]
= [ 53.5ft. × 0.33ft.]
= 17.655 sqft.
Total area of tile fixing
= area of flooring + area of skirting
= 192 sqft. + 17.66 sqft.
= 209.66 sqft.

Note: Below given data are taken from the abovementioned article.
Cement bags required for 100sq ft. tile area= 2.84 bag.
The volume of sand required for 100 sq ft. tile area = 0.3953 cum.
By cross multiplication,
 The number of cement bags required for tile flooring
= [2.84 bag × (209.66 sq ft ÷ 100 sq ft.)]
= [ 2.84 bag × 2.096]
= 5.95 bags.

The volume of sand required
= [0.3953cum × (209.66 sq ft ÷ 100 sq ft.)]
= [0.3953 cum × 2.096]
= 0.829 cum.
= 29.26 cu ft
 White cement required for joint filling=1kg. ( Approx.)
 Labor cost.
The average Labor charge per sq ft of tile work = INR 15/
The total labor cost
= Total tile area in sq ft. × labor rate/sq ft.
= 209.66 sq ft. × 15/sq ft.
= 3144.90/
Now, let us calculate the tile flooring cost in the table format.
Sl. no.  Item.  Qty.  Rate.
in INR. 
Unit.  Cost
in INR. 
1.  Tile  209.66  48/  Sq ft.  10,063.68 
2.  Cement.  5.95  400/  bags  2,380.00 
3.  Sand.  0.829  2000/  Cum.  1,658.00 
4.  White cement.  1.0  20/  Kg.  20.00 
5.  The material cost =  14,121.68  
6.  Add 5% wastage =  706.08  
7.  Total material cost =  14,827.76  
8.  Labors cost =  3,144.90  
9.  The total cost of flooring =  17,972.66 
Note: All the rates mentioned in the abovegiven table are the average market rate in India. To get the accurate cost of flooring, replace them with your regional rate.
Cost per sq ft of tile flooring
= [Total cost of tile flooring ÷ total tile area]
= [17972.66 ÷ 209.66]
= 85.72/
By rounding off, the tile flooring cost per sq ft. of the building is INR 86/
