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 above-given 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:
1. 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.
The total area of tile fixing
= area of flooring + area of skirting
= 192 sqft. + 17.66 sqft.
= 209.66 sqft.
Go through the article,
Calculating the quantity of materials for the 100 sq. ft. of tile flooring.
Note: Below given data are taken from the above-mentioned 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,
2. 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.
3. 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
4. White cement required for joint filling = 1kg. ( Approx.)
5. 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.

Note: All the rates mentioned in the above-given 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/-
