Based on an eight square metre tiled floor (the average-sized kitchen in the UK), with a mid-range tile priced at £24 per square metre, plus materials and labour required, you should expect to pay between £450 – £750 in most areas.
This rises to between £600 – £900 in London and some other areas in the south of the country. Prices will vary depending on where in the UK you are, so it’s best to speak to a professional who can provide you with a specific cost.
Other factors that may affect the cost include:
- The material and quality of tile you choose
- The amount of adhesive and filler you will need
- The experience of your tradesperson
- Whether your floor needs significant preparation
