How much do tilers charge in 2021?
Tiling is one of the best ways of both practically and stylishly decorating a kitchen, bathroom or cloakroom. Easy to keep clean and designed for wet and humid rooms, tiling is one of the most versatile ways of decorating, and has been for centuries.However, tiling yourself can be a highly technical and difficult challenge. So, people often prefer to get a professional tiler in.
How much a tiler charges will vary from job to job, largely depending on the size of the bathroom or space being tiled – but will also factor in things such as whether they’re required to tile a floor, walls or a combination of both.
As well as these considerations, the usual logistical factors will also apply. These include where you live, tiling work is typically more expensive in the south and in larger cities, and how urgently you need the work doing, the willingness to wait for a tiler's availability can often save on your budget.
One thing you can definitely take care of yourself before booking a tiler is choosing your tiles. We’ve written before about the benefits of mosaic tiling, but visiting your local tiling or hardware shop and selecting the materials you'd like will always help to reduce time and money.
