Dear friends, Here we will understand the number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room. While constructing 12×16 feet room, this post will help you to know the approximate number of bricks required.

# How Many Bricks Required For 12×16 Feet Room?

2611 bricks required for 12×16 feet room approximately. See the full explanation in this post where we have considered four walls, one gate and one window in the room and using the standard wall height of 10 feet (only brick work) and Indian standard brick size of 190×90×90 mm. In first case the thickness of wall is 4 inch and in second case the thickness of wall is 9 inch.

## Bricks Required in 12×16 Feet Room (4 Inch Wall)

We have some requirements and considerations in the calculation of 12×16 feet room:

### Our Requirements For the Room

Our requirements for 12×16 feet room are following:
• Four sided walls
• One gate
• One window
In this room, we are ignoring ventilation because its not required in the most of room.

### Our Consideration For the Room

We consider following to calculate the number of bricks in 12×16 feet room:

• The two face to face walls size= 10 feet height × 12 feet width or 120 inch × 144 inch and
• Another two face to face wall size= 10 feet height × 16 feet width or 120 inch × 192 inch.
• One window (window size= 4 feet × 3 feet or 48 inch × 36 inch).
• One gate (door size= 7 feet × 3 feet or 84 inch × 36 inch).
• Brick size (Indian modular brick size or Indian standard brick size = 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm or 7.48 inch × 3.54 inch × 3.54 inch).
• Mortar thickness 12 mm and
• Wall thickness is 4 inch (Single brick wall).

### Calculate the Area of  All Walls in 12×16 Feet Room

To calculate number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room, we need to calculate the area of all walls separately because there are four walls in the room with two different sizes and the total area of all four walls would be the sum of the areas of each wall.
• Length of the Room = 12 feet
• Width of the Room = 16 feet
• Height of the Wall = 10 feet

#### The Area of Each Wall Would Be

1. Wall 1: Length × Height = 12 feet × 10 feet = 120 square feet
2. Wall 2: Length × Height = 12 feet × 10 feet = 120 square feet
3. Wall 3: Width × Height = 16 feet × 10 feet = 160 square feet
4. Wall 4: Width × Height = 16 feet × 10 feet = 160 square feet

#### Total Area of All Four Walls Would Be

Total area of walls in 12×15 feet room
= Wall 1 + Wall 2 + Wall 3 + Wall 4
= 120 + 120 + 160 + 160 = 560 square feet

### Area of  Door and Window in the Room (Openings)

There are one door and one window in the 12×16 room. We need to calculate the opening area of door and window separately.
• Height of the Door= 7 feet
• Width of the Door= 3 feet
• Height of the Window= 4 feet
• Width of the Window= 3 feet

#### Total Area of Door and Window

= Area of Door + Area of Window
= (Height of door × Width of door) + (Height of window × Width of window)
= (7 feet × 3 feet) + (4 feet × 3 feet)
= 21 square feet + 12 square feet
33 square feet

### Net Area of Bricks Walls in 12×16 Feet Room

= Total area of walls - Total area of door and window (openings)
= 560 square feet - 33 square feet
= 527 square feet

### Covering Area of A Single Brick With Mortar Thickness in The Wall

Since each brick does not need to cover with mortar, while masonry work only joining faces are covered with single mortar thickness.
So, Covering area of a single brick
= (Length of brick + Thickness of Brick) × (Height of brick + Thickness of Brick)
= (190 mm + 12 mm) × (90 mm + 12 mm)
= 202 mm × 102 mm
= 20604 mm²
= 0.222 square feet

### Number of Bricks Required For 12×16 Feet Room

To determine the number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room area, we need to divide the net brick work area i.e. wall with the covering are of a single brick with mortar thickness.

#### Total Number of Bricks in 12×16 Feet Room

= Net area of brick wall in square feet/ Covering area of a single brick with mortar in square feet
= 527 square feet/ 0.222 square feet
2374 Bricks.

Taking 10% extra as wastage of bricks during brick-masonry work, the total number of bricks is 2374 + 10% of 2374= 2611 Bricks.

### Final Result

The total number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room of 4 inch wall is 2611 Nos. approximately.

So, we would need approximately 2611 bricks to cover the walls of a 12×16 feet room with four walls (4 inch thick), one gate and one window, assuming a standard wall height of 10 feet, mortar thickness of 12 mm and the standard brick size of 190×90×90 mm.

It's important to note that this calculation is an estimate and may vary depending on factors such as the pattern of the brickwork, the size of the mortar joints and the amount of waste generated during construction. It's always a good idea to order a few extra bricks than what you think you'll need in the construction.

• One gate (door size= 7 feet × 3 feet or 84 inch × 36 inch).
• Brick size (Indian modular brick size or Indian standard brick size = 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm or 7.48 inch × 3.54 inch × 3.54 inch).
• Mortar thickness 12 mm and
• Wall thickness is 9 inch (Double brick wall).

### Calculate the Area of  All Walls in 12×16 Feet Room

To calculate number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room, we need to calculate the area of all walls separately because there are four walls in the room with two different sizes and the total area of all four walls would be the sum of the areas of each wall.
• Length of the Room = 12 feet
• Width of the Room = 16 feet
• Height of the Wall = 10 feet

#### The Area of Each Wall Would Be

1. Wall 1: Length × Height = 12 feet × 10 feet = 120 square feet
2. Wall 2: Length × Height = 12 feet × 10 feet = 120 square feet

4. Wall 4: Width × Height = 16 feet × 10 feet = 160 square feet

#### Total Area of All Four Walls Would Be

Total area of walls in 12×15 feet room
= Wall 1 + Wall 2 + Wall 3 + Wall 4
= 120 + 120 + 160 + 160 = 560 square feet

### Area of  Door and Window in the Room (Openings)

There are one door and one window in the 12×16 room. We need to calculate the opening area of door and window separately.
• Height of the Door= 7 feet
• Width of the Door= 3 feet
• Height of the Window= 4 feet
• Width of the Window= 3 feet

#### Total Area of Door and Window

= Area of Door + Area of Window
= (Height of door × Width of door) + (Height of window × Width of window)
= (7 feet × 3 feet) + (4 feet × 3 feet)
= 21 square feet + 12 square feet
33 square feet

### Net Area of Brick Walls in 12×16 Feet Room

= Total area of walls - Total area of door and window (openings)
= 560 square feet - 33 square feet
= 527 square feet
Since, we are using double wall thickness. So, the covering would be double.
I.e. Net Area of Brick Walls in 12×16 feet room
= 2×527 square feet
= 1054 square feet.

### Covering Area of A Single Brick With Mortar Thickness in The Wall

Covering area of a single brick
= (Length of brick + Thickness of Brick) × (Height of brick + Thickness of Brick)
= (190 mm + 12 mm) × (90 mm + 12 mm)
= 202 mm × 102 mm
= 20604 mm²
0.222 square feet

### Number of Bricks Required For 12×16 Feet Room (9 Inch Wall)

To determine the number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room area, we need to divide the net brick work area i.e. wall with the covering are of a single brick with mortar thickness.

#### Total Number of Bricks in 12×16 Feet Room (9 Inch Wall)

= Net area of brick wall in square feet/ Covering area of a single brick with mortar in square feet
= 1054 square feet/ 0.222 square feet
4748 Bricks.

Taking 10% extra as wastage of bricks during brick-masonry work, the total number of bricks is 4748 + 10% of 4748 = 5223 Bricks.

### Final Result

The total number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room of 9 inch wall is 5223 Nos. approximately.

So, we would need approximately 5223 bricks to cover the 9 inch walls of a 12×16 feet room with four walls (4 inch thick), one gate and one window, assuming a standard wall height of 10 feet, mortar thickness of 12 mm and the standard brick size of 190×90×90 mm.

It's important to note that this calculation is an estimate and may vary depending on factors such as the pattern of the brickwork, the size of the mortar joints and the amount of waste generated during construction.
