This tool helps you estimate the total cost of installing a kitchen backsplash based on your specific measurements and preferences.

**Explanation:**

This kitchen backsplash cost calculator allows you to estimate the total cost of installing a backsplash in your kitchen. Here’s how you can use it:

**Width:**Enter the width of the backsplash area in feet.**Height:**Enter the height of the backsplash area in feet.**Tile Cost:**Enter the cost per square foot of the tiles you plan to use.**Installation Cost:**Enter the cost per square foot for installation labor.**Discount:**If you have any discount available, enter the percentage discount.- Click on the “Calculate” button to see the total estimated cost which will be displayed in the “Result” field.

- Prices can vary widely depending on the region and specific vendor.
- The discount must be entered as a percentage value (e.g., for a 10% discount, enter 10).
