Hello geomc,


Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!


Measuring your backsplash for tile installation is a fairly simple process. Simply grab a tape measure and measure the length and height of the area you would like to be covered with the ceramic and glass tiles.

Stanley 25 ft. Tape Measure

Length x height= total square footage


Add 10% percent for waste to ensure you will have enough tiles for the job.


As for the layout of the tiles, refer to the graphic below to get the best look for your backsplash.




It's really that simple! Let us know if you have any further questions regarding the installation of your backsplash tiles, we are here for you.
