If you tile your kitchen yourself then you’ll obviously save on the cost of hiring a tiler to do the job for you. We can provide you with lots of advice on the best tiles for your budget and advice on how to do the job yourself. It may take longer to do it yourself, but with practice and patience, you can tile your kitchen for less.
Ceramic tiles are cheapest
Porcelain, quartz and glass tiles look fabulous, but they can also come with a hefty price tag. Ceramic tiles are generally the cheapest ones you can buy but don’t make the mistake of thinking they’re not a good buy. They offer many of the same benefits as porcelain tiles but they may not last as long. Also, take accurate measurements of the area you want to tile so you buy the right number of tiles … plus a few extra in case of any breakages!
You don’t have to tile the whole lot
With the fabulous range of tiles on offer, you may well be tempted to tile the whole kitchen. Yet, if you opt instead, for example, to tile the lower half of each wall, or limit the tiling to splashbacks behind the sink and stove, then you can either save money by having cheaper tiles to cover a larger area or buy more expensive tiles to create a feature… or perhaps a combination of both.
You could intersperse patterned tiles among cheaper, plain tiles to create impact. Use mosaic tiles or metro tiles to add a flash of color or create lines and patterns. Alternatively, create interesting features by using different shades and tones of the same color.
Don’t forget the extras
When your head is full of exciting ideas, it’s easy to overlook the accessories and equipment you need to tile your kitchen. Make sure you budget for items like tile cutters, adhesive, grouting, tile spacers and trims so there are no unwelcome surprises.
