How many tiles do I need for a backsplash?

Thumbtack Editors

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.
