How Much Should I Pay for Tile Floor Installation?

If you are already in possession of the tiles you want to use, then you will only need to pay for the cost of installation. According to Cost Helper, that cost is around £3 to £6 per square foot for standard room shapes requiring no custom work. All pricing in this article is based on September 2010 figures.

If You Need Custom Detail Work

Different materials used for custom work vary in price. Many businesses include the cost of installation with the price of their tiles. Prices range from £1.90 for vinyl tiles to £19 for ceramic tiles, priced per square foot. Custom work, such as adding ornamental detail to tiles, adds to the aforementioned cost. Tiling odd-shaped rooms, such as hexagonal rooms, add to the cost as well. Contractors can only give you a final estimate after they perform a walk-through of the areas to be tiled, as each job is different in the amount of custom detail work required.

Bottom Line

According to Cost Helper, your final tile installation cost will depend on the amount of custom detail work and type of tile you desire. If you have an empty, standard-shape room, and have already purchased your tiles, expect to pay only an installation fee between £3 and £6 per square foot. If you have a nonstandard room and would like the installer to supply the tiles, expect to pay over £19 per square foot for ceramic tile and over £1.90 per square foot for vinyl tiles. The more complex your room, the higher the cost per square foot.
