How Much Does Kitchen Tiling Cost In 2023?

If you’re considering a kitchen tiling project, it’s essential to understand how much you’re likely to pay before you start. This means doing your research into the kinds of things that affect the price, as well as thinking about the options for your specific project and getting a good sense of what you’d like to choose. Without this, you run the risk of overspending or making poor decisions that could end up costing you even more further down the line. 

However, this doesn’t need to be a difficult process! In this article, we cover all the different things that could affect the price of your kitchen tiling job, and give you some example prices you can use to help you make the right choices for your project. Read on to find out more.

Kitchen tiling prices

In the table to the right of this article, we’ve included some example prices for a kitchen tiling job across the country. Depending on where you live, materials and labour will have a different cost – so it’s important to factor this in when you’re thinking about prices. Note that these prices are for tiling the floor and splashbacks of a medium sized kitchen – so expect to pay less for a small kitchen and more for a particularly large one.

Of course, every kitchen is unique, and there are a range of things that will affect the price of your kitchen tiling job. The primary thing is simply the total amount of area you’d like to have tiled, usually measured in metres squared. Another important element of the price will be the tiling material that you choose, as the options for kitchen tiling vary significantly in cost. We’ve covered both of these aspects in detail in the next two sections of this article.

On top of these two things, there are other factors that may affect the price. In particular, the complexity of the job will also have an impact. This means that if you’d like any specific patterns of tiling, like herringbone or mosaic, this will add to the cost. Plus, if you’re adding tiling to an existing kitchen and there are lots of cabinets, plug sockets or other things that need to be cut around, this could make the overall job more expensive. A couple of other things to consider are the accessibility of the kitchen and the condition of the walls or floor – a particularly hard to reach kitchen or one in an especially poor condition will also attract a premium price for the job.

Types of kitchen tiling job

As the area you’re going to be tiled is such a vital part of the price, it’s important to think carefully about what parts of your kitchen you’d like to get tiled. The most common areas to be tiled in a kitchen are the floors, walls and splashbacks.

Kitchen floors are commonly tiled as tile is a durable, easy to clean surface – perfect for the kitchen where any spills can be quickly and easily wiped up and cleaned away. Tiles are also durable enough to withstand any dropped crockery or pans – so long as you choose the right material! 

Walls and splashbacks are also often tiled for similar reasons, as this creates an easily cleanable surface behind any food preparation area. The splashback area around kitchen sinks is also often tiled.

Outside of these common areas, less commonly tiled areas in kitchens include countertops, kitchen islands, and cabinet or cupboard sides or fronts. These can be tiled, but you’ll need to ensure you choose the right material and pattern carefully.

When you’re pricing your kitchen tiling job, think about the area in your kitchen you’d like to be tiled, and then measure it. Giving a tiling company a figure in m2 for the area will enable them to give you an accurate quote for the job.

Choosing a material

As well as choosing the right type of kitchen tiling project, it’s also essential to consider your options for tile material when thinking about the price. The difference between the prices of different materials can be considerable, so it’s vital to make the right choice for your project. We’ll cover a few common kitchen tiling materials in this article.

Ceramic

Ceramic tiling is extremely popular for kitchen walls and splashbacks. It’s the most affordable type of tiling, and available in a huge range of colours and patterns, so you’re bound to find the right choice for your kitchen design. However, ceramic can be less durable than other options, so some types of ceramic tiling are not recommended for use on kitchen floors.

Porcelain

Porcelain tiling is more expensive than ceramic, but it’s also more durable. This kind of tiling is a popular choice for kitchen floors as it’s hard wearing, easy to clean, and also available in a huge range of patterns and styles. It’s worth considering both porcelain and ceramic tiling for most kitchen tiling projects – some ceramic tiles can be very expensive, while some porcelain options are very affordable. Speak to a reputable tiling company for all the details.

Terracotta

Another very popular choice for kitchen walls and splashbacks, terracotta tiles are fairly affordable as they’re actually a kind of ceramic tile made from clay. They are often used on both kitchen floors and for splashbacks and walls, and their distinct red-brown tone brings warmth to any kitchen design.

Natural stone

Less commonly used in kitchens but still a popular choice, natural stone tiles come in a range of options and styles to suit any budget or design. Slate, limestone, granite, marble and limestone are popular picks. These natural stone styles are typically more expensive than ceramic or porcelain options, but are still worth considering as they may suit your style. Most styles are suitable for use on kitchen walls and splashbacks, with some also being durable enough to stand up to high traffic floor use.

To ensure you get the best price for your kitchen tiling project, make sure to get a number of quotes from reputable tiling companies in your area.
