  • The size of the tile with small mosaics taking much longer to fit.
  • How many tiles need to be cut – rooms constructed to an unusual shape can require hundreds of cut tiles.

  • Where you live, London being one of the most expensive areas.
  • The size of the room and whether you want the entire wall tiled or only part of it.

Our Bathroom Tiling Price Guide – Updated For 2018

In March 2018, we got in touch with dozens of tilers and asked them how much it would cost to tile our bathroom which is typical of those found in 3-bed houses.

Our aim was to get an idea of how much this work costs, not a ballpark figure but a researched price.

Below you’ll find the results of our research, you can use this a guide to bathroom tiling costs in 2018. If you would like a written quote for tiling, just fill in this form.

What’s Included in The Prices Below?

We measured our bathroom and chose tiles suitable for a room of this size – small tiles look great in small rooms while large tiles are more suited to larger bathrooms.

We also allowed an extra 10% for damage and breakages.

If you’re not sure of how many tiles you’ll need, use a calculator such as this, you’ll first need to know the size of the room’s walls and floor in square metres and also the size of the tiles.

The prices below are for chessboard layout, this is the simplest design and quickest to create.

The labour fee includes the adhesive, grout and floor backing material if needed.

What’s Excluded From the Figures?

The removal and disposal of any existing wall tiles is excluded from the prices.

If the walls need plasterboard – this will cost extra. Our prices are for bathroom tiling only.

If you want small mosaic tiles, then the project will take considerably longer and cost much more.

Unusual patterns require more time and create more wastage so will cost more.

The cost to drill holes into the tiles for shelves, loo roll hangers and towel rails etc aren’t included in the figures, although your bathroom fitter rather than the tiler will probably do this.

While each tiler gave us a slightly different timescale, the average was four days.
