Ceiling Tile Estimator
This calculator is designed to give an approximate quantity for ceiling tiles needed. We round up in our calculations, not down.
While we assume regular dimensions, you can estimate irregular dimensions fairly well. Measure the length of the room (at the longest point if irregular) and the width of the room (at the widest point if irregular). Enter the values; if you are using 2 x 4 tiles, you may want to try the entries both ways to see if the fit is better one way or the other. Click on Calculate for the values returned.
These are estimates only, though from history, very close. Actual quantities may vary due to many circumstances, including variable ceilings, irregular shaped rooms or areas, hallways, columns, posts, AC and heating ducts, electrical lights and similar potential problems. We are generally slightly above what the worst possible case requirements are including sizes that do not exactly fit on a 2 x 2 or 2 x 4 grid and require cuts with centering.
Remember that an area uses either 4 foot or 2 foot tiles. We give you the calculations for both.
