If you’ve already settled on vinyl for your new kitchen floor and you’re looking to budget for it, you’re in the right place.
When choosing your kitchen flooring, it’s important to think about your budget and factor in any other elements of the kitchen that may also need work. You don’t want to start a project you can’t finish, so to help plan your kitchen vinyl floor budget in advance, we’ve put together this cost guide to show you roughly how much you can expect to spend.
Budgeting for vinyl kitchen floor installation
|Kitchen vinyl floor installation costs||Average cost (range - low)||Average cost (range - high)||Average cost|
|Vinyl flooring per 18.5 m2 area - material only||-||-||£530|
|Labour per day||£100||£200||£150|
|Plywood 12mm thick per 2.4 x 1.2m sheet||£18||£30||£24|
|Sheet / roll flooring per m2 - excl adhesive||£8||£30||£19|
The average cost of vinyl flooring for a kitchen is £530 – based on a floor area of 18.5 square metres. However, how this figure will compare to the costs for your kitchen will depend on the size of the floor area and the design and quality of the vinyl you choose.
You should also expect to pay an average cost of between £200-£400 for the materials and installation needed for standard vinyl flooring in a medium-sized kitchen.
Vinyl flooring installation is best left to the professionals, who on average will cost you £150 per day. This price can differ if your existing floors need significant preparation. For example, some sub-floors may need to be covered with plywood before the vinyl can be laid.
