Sticking tiles on walls or laying them on floors may seem simple. But it can be extremely time-consuming for the amateur. There are also sequences and starting points that may not be apparent to those who have not done it before.


Tiling cost depends on several key factors you need to consider when establishing a project budget:

  1. Size of tiled area. The greater area for tiling, the lower cost per square meter.

  2. Type and quality of tiles. Higher value tiles - more expensive work as requires more skills, time and accuracy of cutting and stacking.

  3. Dimensions of tiles. If tiles are small (10x10cm for example) or very big and need more cutting, laying will take longer.

  4. Shape of rooms and surfaces for tiling. A lot of corners or multi-level stacking means there will be more undercut and work involved.

  5. Project deadline.

  6. Specific pattern, mosaic, tiles with pictures etc. This type of tiling is time consuming and costly.

  7. The volume and complexity of laying curbs, specific cutting and drilling holes.

  8. Additional works that may arise (plastering, assembly of small components, boards installation and other work which takes time and work).
