What percent overage of tile to order
Hi everyone. I am remodeling a bathroom for the first time. We are about to place the order for the wall and floor tile. How much overage should we order? If the tiled floor area is 27 sf, how many sf of floor tile should we order (we are using marble tile that comes on 1' x 1' sheets, if that matters). For the wall subway tile, we have an area of about 170 sf. Then there's a chair rail that should cover 26 linear feet and a pencil that will cover 12 linear feet.
The tile store sales person wrote on the order sheet: 45 square feet for the floor, 187 sf for the subway tile, 68 pieces EACH of the pencil and the chair rail (these pieces are 6" in length). Other than the subway tile, this seems like a lot of overage.
