    Cost of replacing kitchen floor tiles? 13th Jul 17 at 8:46 PM
    I'm about to drop the bombshell to my husband that I'd like to replace our kitchen floor tiles. To help me win the inevitable debate as to whether we should have them, could anyone give me a rough idea of cost?

    The floor is approx 15'10" x 6'. The existing tiles will also need taking up. What's the likely labour cost? Also, could anyone work out rough cost of buying the actual tiles for me?

    The type of tiles I want can be seen in the link below (found these after a quick google search, but I will obviously shop around if I get the go ahead.

    Thanks for any help! I really want new tiles!!!

    Labour?

    Free, do it yourself, it's not rocket science, even an office worker could do it.

    15'10" x 6' is 4.93m x 1.83m


    You would need 8.84 square metres of tiles, 9 boxes of tiles. 10 boxes to allow for cuts and wastage. Price for 9 boxes will be £252.72


    As for labour charge, it depends on where in the country you are and also what prep work needs doing.
