labor cost for backsplash small tiles vs. big tiles?

We are getting our kitchen remodeled and we initially wanted 12x12 marble tile laid on the backsplash. Our contractor said he was only willing to do it if we used straight tiles (i.e. not diagonally like we would have preferred) so we wrote that into our contract.

Then we decided we don't like the vertical tiles and would prefer a brick pattern with 2.5 x 8 tiles.

He is quoting us an extra $400 in labor only for the additional work of laying out small bricks rather than big tiles. This is for about 20sq ft total.

Is this reasonable?
