1) Calculate square footage of your area to be covered - Lets say that your room is a rectangular room. You only need to measure 2 sides, the longer side and the shorter side and multiply those 2 numbers. Example: This could be 12 and 14 so you would multiply 12x14=168 Square feet.
2) Enter your ceiling/wall area in square feet - In the calculator below, click on the 0 and type in your area in square feet from step one, in our example that would be 168, your number will most likely be different. Then click on Calculate, minimum number of Styrofoam tiles will appear.
3) Add 15 % Overage - We highly recommend you add 15% to your minimum number of tiles needed, this allows for waste factor, mistakes and will give you some tiles for the "just in case" moment. ( On your home/office calculator enter the minimum number of tiles needed, press +,15 % and your total number should appear.) From our example in step #1 we would use 168 in the calculator above and gotten 62 tiles if we add 15% to that, we get 71.3 total with 15%.
4) Order Your Styrofoam Ceiling Tiles
We are glad you have decided to shop online with us here at Decorative Ceiling Tiles. We have provided this ceiling tile calculator to assist you in ordering the right number of tiles needed for your planned project. If you are considering something other than our Styrofoam tiles, this tool can also be used as a ceiling tile estimator for any of our home or commercial decorative tiles that measure 20x20. We offer custom-made tiles and ceiling panels and understand that this ceiling tile calculator may not provide an accurate calculation for panels that are larger than 20x20. There is no need for you to go elsewhere seeking a ceiling tile estimator to figure the coverage for larger panels. We have a professional team ready to answer any questions you may have prior to placing your order to buy either Styrofoam tiles, reproduction tin tiles, or larger custom ceiling panels. We can also offer tips, hints, and video resources to help in the installation process once you receive your tiles at your site.
