The average cost of vinyl flooring for a kitchen is £530 – based on a floor area of 18.5 square metres. However, the exact 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 £225 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.
Additional materials and costs
During a vinyl flooring installation, you may need to budget for extra costs such as:
- Cleaning supplies
- Roll-out underlayment
- Latex screeding
- Trim at openings
