Plan Ahead

The 10% rule should be followed by everyone while ordering tiles. Always order 10% more than you think you'll require. Having an extra lot can be beneficial in a variety of ways. While installation tiles might break or chip unexpectedly, the spare set comes in handy in these situations. It's also possible that the number of tiles you bought for a given region's measurement turned out to be less than what was actually needed to cover that area, and when you went back to buy more, you couldn't find any like ones. As a result, it is usually a good idea to buy an extra set of tiles in addition to the estimated number of tiles.
