How Many Tiles Are In A Carton?
To best understand how many tiles are to be used for a square metre, we need to consider how many tiles are in a pack of varying dimensions.
1. For a carton of 300 x 300 tiles, there are 17 pieces
2. For a carton of 400 x 400 tiles, there are 12 pieces
3. For a carton of 400 x 250 tiles, there are 15 pieces

How Many Square Meters Are In 1 Packet Of Floor Tiles?
How Many Square Meters Are In 1 Packet Of Floor Tiles? To get an estimate of the square metres of the pack of tiles, we first need to calculate the surface area of each tile that makes up the packet and then multiply it by the total amount of tiles in the packet.
For a carton of 300 x 300 tiles, there are 17 pieces
This leads to 300 x 300 x 17 = 1.53m2
For a carton of 400 x 400 tiles, there are 12 pieces
This leads to 400 x 400 x 12 = 1.92m2
For a carton of 400 x 250 tiles, there are 15 pieces
This leads to 400 x 250 x 15 = 1.5m2
For a packet of 600 x 600 tiles, there are 4 pieces
This leads to 600 x 600 x 4 = 1.44m2
Therefore, with this knowledge of how many square metres a carton of each dimension of tiles can fit, we can now calculate the total number of packets of tiles to be used for a particular area.
