What factors into the total cost?
  • Tile size. Installing smaller tiles is a more labor-intensive project. The extra installation time will add to the labor cost of your project.

  • Tile shape. Square and rectangular tile shapes are some of the easiest to install. Non-rectangular tiles may be more difficult to install.

  • Tile material. For instance, natural stone is typically more expensive than a basic ceramic tile.

  • Demolition. If you need to get rid of the old backsplash, this will increase the cost of your project.

  • Tile patterns. A straight, linear pattern is typically the most affordable option. There may be additional costs associated with more complicated designs, especially those that include multiple types of tile.

  • Your location. If you live in an expensive area (say NYC or Los Angeles), the cost of materials and labor may be significantly higher than the national average.
