So, if a room is 18 feet wide by 18 feet long, the answer is 324 square feet. There are approximately 152 square inches of floor space per square foot of floor area.

The size of a tile affects how much glue is required to attach it to a floor or wall. Large tiles can be difficult to keep clean because they get so hot during use that bacteria can grow in **their surface moisture**. Smaller tiles are easier to wash and don't heat up as much; however, they take more time to install than larger tiles. Flooring professionals call this last fact "finishing time." Finishing time is the amount of time it takes to lay out all the tile in **an entire room**.

There are actually several different sizes of regular tile, but for **practical purposes** you only need to know three: 6-inch, 12-inch, and 36-inch squares. These sizes are used extensively in flooring and countertops and will cover **most rooms** you might want to tile.

It's helpful to know some rough measurements of your room before you start shopping for tiles. This will help you choose a style that fits your needs and doesn't cost a fortune.

Multiplying width by length yields square footage. If a room is 18 feet broad by 20 feet long, the answer is 18 x 20 = 360 square feet. Room sizes are usually expressed in units of area rather than in linear dimensions such as feet or meters. The standard unit for measuring room size is the square foot, which is defined as the surface area of a square one foot on all sides. There are about 678 square inches to a square foot. So, a room that is 18 feet wide and 20 feet long has about 90,000 square inches of space.

The average adult human can walk at a speed of 3.5 miles per hour. This is called "moderate exercise". At **this pace**, it would take approximately 45 minutes to walk 18 feet. A normal person could not possibly cover **that distance** in under an hour unless they were moving something else besides **their legs**!

However, people who exercise regularly can walk faster than this. A professional athlete who trains daily with sports that require speed such as sprinting or jumping can walk more than 3.5 miles per hour. A world-class marathoner can run nearly 26 miles without stopping. These people are in perfect physical condition and have no health issues that would prevent them from being active.

How Do You Calculate Square Feet for a 15' x 18' Area? What is the square footage of a 15-foot-wide by 18-foot-long room? If a room is 15 feet wide by 18 feet long, the area is 270 square feet (15 x 18).

The volume of a room depends on its height and length. Volumes for rooms with **straight sides** are calculated by multiplying the length times the height. For example, the volume of a box is length x height. A room is shaped like a rectangle when there's no door or window at one end. The total volume of **such a room** is length x height x 0.5. Zero. Half because there's no way to know what direction you should measure the room in.

In cases like this, it's best to estimate the volume. Say that the room is 10 feet high and 12 feet long. It would be reasonable to estimate that the volume is about 150 cubic feet. More accurately, you could say that the volume is between 133 and 157 cubic feet.

You don't need to worry about small differences in volume. In this case, the difference isn't important because any room you pick out of that range would have the same amount of storage space. But if you were choosing between **two rooms** with **different volumes** but same dimensions, the one with more space would have more than half as much volume!

If a room is 8 feet wide by 8 feet long, the answer is 8 × 8 = 64 square feet. The 88th floor of a building is called a loft. There are no more rooms on this floor, just open space for storing furniture or equipment. The lofts in some high-rise buildings are also used as living quarters.

The loft of an office building is usually not considered part of its floor area because you cannot live in it. However, if a building has lofts that are available for rent or sale, then they should be included in **the overall floor space calculation**. In **this case**, the number of square feet listed on the building's site plan or in the marketing material for the property would be correct.

If a building has only lofts, but no apartments, then it should not be included in **the total floor space calculation**. Otherwise, the site manager would have to pay additional taxes based on the number of apartments within the building.

In conclusion, floor space calculations require knowledge of the dimensions of the rooms and floors involved. You can determine the size of a room by using the formula width **× length**.
