# How many tiles do I need for my kitchen backsplash?

+2

I measured my kitchen backsplash it measure 165" across & 17" down how many 10x10 tiles would I need, my math is not my best suit.

Approximately 33 tiles. Always good to get a few more in case of special cuts or any OOPS and future problems.

Are u sure it seems like not enough to cover surface. I measured in inches not square feet.

You'll need approximately 30 tiles but be sure to get a few extra for mistakes. You can always double check the amount here: https://www.calculator.com/pantaserv/construction/simpletile.cgi?units=Feet

10" x 10" = 100 sq inches. 165 x 17 = 2805 sq inches. Divide that by 100 (the square inches in one tile) you get 28. But you will need two tiles for the height of the backsplash all the way across so you actually need a minimum of 34. You should probably get about 40 in case of mistakes and plan on returning a few
