Kitchen floor tile installation cost guide
by
Checkatrade

Thanks to the huge range of patterns and designs in which they’re available, kitchen floor tiles suit a variety of modern and traditional kitchen styles. Take a look at our inspiration article for kitchen floor tile inspiration.

When it comes to selecting your kitchen floor tiles and planning how much you’ll need to spend on getting them installed, it’s important to consider your budget and factor in all of the elements in your kitchen that need work.

You should set your budget at the start, as this may determine the type of tiles you can afford. To help you budget in advance, we’ve put together this simple cost guide which will give you an idea of how much the installation of your tiles will cost.

Budgeting for kitchen floor tiles

Kitchen floor tile installation costAverage cost (range - low)Average cost (range - high)Average cost
Floor tile installation in 8 m2 kitchen£450£900£675
Ceramic tile installation per 8 m2 - one person£380£2200£1290
Ceramic floor tile installation - two people - labour only£150£250£200
Porcelain floor tile installation£2200£2650£2425
Stone floor tile installation£1450£2150£1800

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
