    Anyone know of one ?
    I used to have one book marked but it appears dead now

    On it you could put in the dimensions of your walls (up to 8) and it would work out for you how much of your chosen covering you would need (numbers of rolls of wallpaper or amount of tiles etc)

    It would also adjust the number based on size of the tiles and would finally tell you how many tiles of a different size you would need if you told it how many you currently had on the wall

    For example with have 450 7.5" by 6" tiles in our bathroom, it would tell us how many 16" by 24" ones we would need to cover same space
