# How much thinset do I need for tile?

Amount of Thinset Needed
A 120 square foot room with 16-inch tiles will take a minimum of three bags of thinset. Divide the square footage of your project by 95 (the maximum coverage of a 50-pound bag of thinset. For example, a 10-by-12-foot room is 120 square feet; divided by 95, the result is 1.26.

Thereof, how much thinset do I need for 12x24 tile?

Thinset & Grout Coverage Info

TILE SIZE RECOMMENDED SPACING Sq Ft COVERAGE (based on 25lb sanded)
12 inch 3/16 inch 115 - 125 Sq Ft
18 inch 3/16 inch 140 - 150 Sq Ft
12 x 24 inch 3/16 inch 130 - 140 Sq Ft

Similarly, how much thinset should I use? Holding the trowel at a slight angle with the flat side against the surface, spread the thinset across the floor or wall like butter on bread.
