How much tile do I need for my shower?
Follow these steps to calculate how many tiles you need for a shower:
- Measure the width and height of each wall in inches.
- Multiply the width by the height for each wall.
- Add the totals for each wall.
- Divide the result by 144 to find the total square feet.
- Subtract any windows from the total.
- Add 10% to 25% for overages to ensure there is enough tile in case of breakage. For diagonal or herringbone designs, add 20% to 35% instead because diagonal cuts result in more tile loss.
When ordering tile, include all other required pieces like bullnose tile, trim, or accents to increase the likelihood of receiving tiles with consistent color.

Frequently asked questions
Are shower wall panels cheaper than tile?
Some shower wall panels are cheaper than tile, depending on the material. Acrylic and fiberglass shower panels cost $300 to $800 but look plasticky. Composite, Corian, and solid surface panels cost as much as as ceramic or porcelain tile after factoring in installation costs.
Shower panels take less time to install than tile, are waterproof, and are easier to keep clean because they don't have true grout lines.
How long does it take to tile a shower or bathroom?
Tiling a shower or bathroom takes 2 to 5 days, depending on the size, tile type, and design complexity. Demolishing and removing old tile, prepping the surface, and installing backer boards and a waterproof membrane adds 1 day.
Can you tile over tile in a shower or bathroom?
You can tile over tile in a shower or bathroom if the existing tiles and grout are in good condition, evenly placed, and free of cracks. Most professionals recommend removing and replacing the tile instead because old tiles do not provide an ideal surface for new tiles to adhere to.
Can you tile over drywall in a shower or bathroom?
You should not tile over drywall in showers, bathrooms, or other areas exposed to moisture because water can seep behind the tile and cause mold, leaks, or other damage. Install tile on concrete or Hardie backer board with a waterproof membrane or vapor barrier instead.
Can you resurface bathroom floor tiles?
Bathroom floor tiles can be resurfaced. Tile refinishing costs $5 to $10 per square foot and may be used on most bathroom tile surfaces, including floors, shower walls, and tubs. Resurfacing covers the old tile in a spray coating, hiding chips and stains and making the tile look new.
What is the best tile for bathroom floors?
The best tile for bathroom floors is porcelain, ceramic, or vinyl. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are durable, easy to clean and maintain, and come in a wide variety of colors and styles. Vinyl tiles are the least expensive and are easy to cut but not as durable as porcelain or ceramic.
Choose tiles with a DCOF rating of 0.42 or higher for added slip resistance. The DCOF rating determines the amount of friction on wet floors when walked upon.
What is the best tile for shower floors?
The best tile for shower floors is porcelain or ceramic tile no larger than 4"x4" with a matte or textured glaze for added traction. Smaller tiles conform better to the slope and shape of the shower floor, and the additional grout lines provide more slip resistance.
What is the best tile for shower walls?
The best tile for shower walls is glazed porcelain, ceramic, or natural stone:
- Glazed porcelain tile is durable, easy to clean, cost-effective, and has the lowest moisture permeability of any tile. Porcelain tiles also have through-body color, making chips less noticeable.
- Glazed ceramic tile is durable, the least expensive, and cuts easily, requiring less labor for installation.
- Natural stone tile is hard and durable but may require more maintenance and cleaning because it is more porous.
When choosing tile for a shower, confirm the tile is approved for floor or shower use. Not all wall tile can be used in a shower.
How much does it cost to replace pool tile?
Replacing the waterline tiles in an in-ground pool costs $8 to $30 per square foot or $2,500 to $5,000 on average, depending on the pool's size and the tile type. Maintaining the correct water alkalinity and brushing tiles weekly with a soft brush prevents scale build-up that damages tile.
