Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a tile backsplash cost?

It typically costs between $10 and $40 per square foot to install a tile backsplash. However, there are many factors that can drive prices up and down, including:

  • The type of tile you want. 
  • The area and size of the surface.
  • The project’s complexity. 
  • The labor rates in your area
  • Much more.

Because there are so many factors that impact tile backsplash prices, it’s important to get cost estimates from installation professionals near you.

How long does it take to install backsplash?

The time it takes to install a tile backsplash depends on the size of the area and the type of materials you’re using. But generally, it’ll take a few days to finish the project. Porcelain or ceramic tile may take less time than that, while very small glass tiles or complicated designs are likely to add time. 

Chat with the best tile specialists to find out how long it will take to install a backsplash in your home.

What is the easiest backsplash to install?

Peel-and-stick tiles are the easiest to install. They don’t require any materials or preparation work besides measuring. 

Ceramic tile, a popular choice for many homeowners, is a fairly simple installation choice for backsplash, and it comes in almost any color and pattern. Glass tile is a bit more difficult to install than ceramic, while stone or marble tile tends to be the most expensive. 

Contact the best tiling contractors near you to determine the best type of backsplash to install in your home.

Can you tile over a tile backsplash?

Yes, you can tile over your existing kitchen backsplash if you want a fresh, new look. This will only work if the surface is smooth and there are no cracked or uneven backsplash tiles in the wall. If you have a few problem tiles, simply remove and reinstall them before you tile over the wall. 

In general, it’s better to start with a blank wall. However, you may save time by simply tiling over your existing tile backsplash. When in doubt, always consult a tiling professional.

What is backsplash tile?

When a homeowner says they want to install a tile backsplash in their kitchen or bathroom, they’re usually referring to that area on your wall that’s located between your cabinets and counters. Thanks to all of the different tile materials, textures and patterns you can choose from, a backsplash can add elegance, charm and color to your kitchen and bathroom.

How many tiles do I need for a backsplash?

To figure out how many tiles you need for your backsplash, grab your measuring tape and calculator. Measure the area where you plan to add the backsplash and figure out how many tiles you need based on that calculation. Tile boxes often indicate the total square footage the tiles inside will cover. 

If you need help determining how many tiles you need (and what types of tiles you should use), you can always get advice from a backsplash installation professional.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by conducting an online search for tilers in your area. Ask if the tiler can conduct a consultation through a video call instead of a traditional site visit to limit exposure. It’s also wise to confer about the current state of the pandemic and ensure that it’s safe to complete the project now. If not, discuss postponing for another time. 

Which is better: porcelain or ceramic tile?

Porcelain tiles are more durable and have a longer lifespan than ceramic tile. If you're installing flooring in an area with high traffic or lots of heavy furniture, porcelain tiles will look better for longer. They’re also very easy to clean and maintain. Porcelain is also very water-resistant and can hold up in places like bathrooms and rooms with jacuzzis, hot tubs, or swimming pools. 

But if the cost is your top priority, ceramic tiles are often more affordable. Ceramic tile prices start as low as $0.45 or $0.50 per square foot, and porcelain tile starts at $3 per square foot.

Does tile flooring increase home value?

Having a tile floor may increase your home’s value, but it might depend on the type of tile you install and the trends in the real estate market.

Chat with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out what types of home repairs and remodeling projects you should tackle before you put your home on the market. It might make sense to add new tiles when renovating your kitchen or bathroom, for example.

Excellent in every way. Timely, efficient with a focus on detail at a good price. Terence installed a glass subway tile backsplash in our remodeled kitchen. The tile was set on day one and the grouting on day two. I would/will hire him again. Very punctual too.

Terence installed my kitchen backsplash. I had a lot of light switches and outlets on the wall, so it required a lot of delicate cuts. He did a quality job and cleaned up afterwards. I would use him again for tile work.

We LOVE the work that K&M did for us!! They tore out and then reinstalled a new kitchen backsplash and remodeled our Powder Room which included tearing out and reinstalling a new tile floor, installing beadboard, and installing a new vanity and mirror which we had purchased. Both rooms look incredible!! We could not be happier and highly recommend them.

Yong and his crew were amazing. We replaced the cheap wood with large tile on the entire first level. The job included pulling up the wood which was glued down and installing the tile which had previously purchased. Yong responded to my request for an estimate on the same day came by to look at the job and provided an estimate well below others. The job actually became a lot more involved than expected but he kept to his original estimate and did a great job. We'd definitely use him again and recommend him for any of tile and backsplash needs!
