What reason do you have for not wanted to tile around your sink. That is an important place for tile. Plus, it will affect the looks of the room. Reconsider tiling the entire area. You will have to cut some tiles to fit and the placement of cut tiles is important. The best suggestion is to lay out the tile in an area of the room that spans length and width. You want to have nice full tiles in the most exposed areas and where the tile meets carpet or other flooring, and in entry ways. If you can place the tiles that have been cut to a smaller width in areas not as noticeable, like under the sink and frig, or butting up to base cabinets, the size difference will not be as obvious. If you find that you have only a small width, requiring a thin piece of tile ( 2 to 3 inches), it might be better to start your tile toward the center of the room and have cut tiles that are larger at both ends to avoid skinny strips of tile. ( a look that will tell everyone an amateur did the tile work!) Also, in measuring the room dimensions, if you are going to put back a wood base board molding, take it off and tile up to the wall, then reset the molding on top of the tile for a nice finished look. So account for that extra 1/2 inch or so of floor you will need to cover with tile.

In theory 1275 tiles. But that assumes that the area to be tiled is "well-behaved" and that there is no wastage.

tiles are 12inches by 12inches,and your kitchen measures12feet by 14feet.how many tiles would you need?

160 tiles

12X14=168 sq feet 12X12 tiles are ONE sq foot each 2X4 area untiled= -8 sq feet looks like 160 sq feet

The area around the sink would take two rows of four tiles each, so that is 8 tiles which will NOT be needed. The whole floor would take twelve rows of fourteen tiles = 12 x 14 = 168. So, if we take away the 8 tiles which won't be needed we are left with 160 tiles.

If the tiles measure 12 inches square then the area of each tile is 1 sq foot. Therefore 1400 tiles are needed to cover an area of 1400 square feet. However, the actual dimensions of the area being tiled can affect the number of tiles required so closer examination is needed.

12X12 would be one footXone foot & 1X1=1 so each tile is one sq foot. Length times width is the formula for finding area. the area to be tiled is 4x14 and 14+14+14+14 is 56 sq feet! 56 sq feet = 56 tiles

We ,know that :no. of tiles = area of room /area of tiles .so,no.of tiles =36 X42 /2x2=378

I am going to assume that you mean 12in x 12in tiles. 12in x 12in tiles are 1 sq ft, so you would need 140 of them to cover 140sq ft. You may need more depending on the shape of the area to be tiled.

Assume that the tiles are 3 inches by 6 inches, although there is no reason to do that! Area of each tile = 0.25 ft * 0.5 feet = 0.125 sq feet. Number of tiles required = Total area to be covered/Area of each tile = 210/0.125 = 1680 tiles. That is the mathematical answer. In real life, the number required will depend on the configuration of the area to be tiled. For example, a circular area of 210 square feet will require far more tile cutting than a rectangular one - even fewer if both sides of the rectangle are in quarter of half feet. That then brings into play your tiling skills, wastage etc.
