    Take each wall in turn, measure the length and measure the height. Multiply these 2 numbers together gives you how many square metres that wall is. Do the same with each of the walls and then add all your figures together to get a total square metres. I would just ignore windows for working this out as, although the area to be tiled will be smaller with a window in it, it will take you just as long to do it with all your reveal cuts, trim etc.
    Hope this helps
