How Much Does Floor Tiling Cost in 2023?

Floor tiling is an extremely popular option for homeowners who want to add a touch of style to their homes. Whether you're renovating your kitchen, bathroom, or any other room in your house, installing tiles on your floors can significantly enhance the overall appearance and value of your property. Floor tiling is beautiful and practical, as the durability it offers lends itself naturally to rooms like kitchens and bathrooms, as well as high traffic rooms like entrance halls.

However, as with any home improvement project, cost is an essential consideration. In this article, we'll discuss the factors that impact the cost of floor tiling, explore the various options available to homeowners, and provide you with a rough estimate of how much you can expect to pay for your tiling project. Whether you're a seasoned DIY enthusiast or planning to hire a professional, this guide will help you make an informed decision about the cost of tiling your floors. 

Floor tiling prices

To help with your floor tiling project, we've included a table in this article that details the average price for this work. This table has the prices for floor tiling work across the country, as a significant factor that affects the price will be the location in the country where you live. There can be substantial fluctuations in the price based on the differences in labour and material costs across the country. We've accounted for all of these so you can make an informed choice with all the information about the likely costs of the project in your area.

This table has the prices for an average floor tiling project – using square, ceramic tiles for a room around 20 square metres. For larger rooms, expect to pay more, while floor tiling in smaller rooms could cost as little as £200. Similarly, if you choose different materials for your tiling, or more complicated mosaic layouts, this will add to the overall cost.

Cost to tile a floor

What affects the price of floor tiling?

There are a number of factors that will affect the overall price of your floor tiling project. Every project is unique, so it's important to get a number of quotes for your job, but thinking about the following factors will help guide your research. 

The type of tile you choose

The type of tile you choose for your floor will have a massive effect on the overall cost. There are a wide range of tiles available, with each having its own unique features and therefore a different price. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are the most affordable options and are very commonly used, so these are a good option if you're looking to stick to a tight budget. On the other end of the market, natural stone tiles like marble, granite or slate are significantly more expensive. There are lots of other variations in tiles, so speak to a reputable tiling company to discuss all of your options and figure out which is best for you. 

Another thing you may not have even realised is that the choice of tiling could also impact on the installation costs. Natural stone tiles will require more careful handling and cutting during installation, and this will understandably increase the labour costs. Additionally, some tiles also require specific adhesives or grouts – these may also increase the overall cost. It's worth discussing this possibility when you speak to tiling companies, as this could avoid an unexpected extra expense. 

The size of the room you're having tiled

Understandably, the size of the room is another factor that will have a massive impact on the overall cost of your floor tiling project. The larger the space, the more tiles will be needed, and the longer the installation will take – meaning both the material and labour costs will be higher. For example, tiling a small bathroom may be done in just a day, but tiling a large kitchen or hallway will take several days.

The complexity of the project

Coupled with the size of the room, there's also the overall difficulty of the tiling job to consider. If the room has a lot of corners or cut out areas, this will require substantially more cutting of the tiles to fit the room. Conversely, a simple square room will be easier to tile, so this will be cheaper. In some cases, you may find that an unevenly shaped small bathroom is more expensive to tile than a larger, simple square shaped kitchen. There is also the number of items of furniture that will need to be cut around – for example toilets, sinks and bathtubs in a bathroom, while in a kitchen there will be cupboards and breakfast bars to potentially contend with. The more complexity here, the more expensive the overall labour costs for the installation will be.

Additionally, choosing a more complex pattern for your tiles will understandably impact the price. A simple square repeating pattern will be the cheapest, with herringbone, diagonal or mosaic patterns costing more as these more intricate patterns naturally take longer to lay.

The condition of your existing flooring

The final thing that could affect the price of your floor tiling project is the condition of the existing floor. There are two things to consider – firstly, if you've got old flooring like carpets or even other tiling to be removed, this will add to the labour costs of the project. Disposal of these items can also be a costly addition to your floor tiling project!

As well as any existing floor, the price of floor tiling will also depend on the condition of the subfloor surface that the tiles are laid on. If this is in poor condition and requires either repair or preparation work, this will also be reflected in the overall cost of the project. 

If you're considering a floor tiling project, use the table to the right and the information in this article to kickstart your research into how much it's likely to cost! Then, speak to several reputable tiling companies to get quotes and compare what they can offer.
