We did this the easy way :)

We decided to pull up the tile in the Foyer and downstair bathroom and put down new tile.  We went to the store where we were purchasing the new tile, told them the dimensions of the Foyer and the bathroom  and they told us exactly how many square feet the area was and how many tiles to buy.  In fact, they even had a computer program that told them how many of each tile to purchase if we wanted to use two different sizes of the same tile.  We ordered it right then and there, paid them for it and they shipped it. 

You should always purchase approximately 10-15% more tile  for broken or cut tiles.  (there is always some waste because tiles will have to be cut to fit around stairs, doorways, etc.)  We ordered an extra 20% on top of that and are happy because we have extra tile in case any pieces ever get broken.  It's always good to order some extra and if one day someone breaks one or something happens to a small area of the floor you can replace it.  Oftentimes tile is discontinued and you may not find the exact same tile again, so it's good to order extras to match it if the worst happens and you find you have to replace part of the floor.

We learned all of this by simply talking to the experts at the Tile center.  The tile we fell in love with is a tile that may not be around forever so we were glad to have their help and it's comforting to know we have a few extra boxes of tile if we need it in the future.  We decided on our own to buy the extra boxes, we weren't cooerced into it.  It was only $80 or $100 more and since the entire job cost $7,0000 we figured it was worth it.

If you are talking about 16"  x 16" pavers , which equals 1.77 square feet , then your 250 square foot patio would take 147.06 pavers.
