The most commonly used method of interior decoration in the bathroom is laying the tiles. The use of tile is dictated by its positive aspects in operation. After all, tiles are the most recommended material for rooms with high humidity.
Tile is the most suitable covering for a bathroom, as it well withstands high humidity and temperature.
Type of work
Even with a high price, many decide to put the tile in the bathroom. Here it is necessary to face with a choice: we put a tile independently or we resort to the help of experts? This is a rather laborious process. After all, you need to put the tile not only on the floor, but also on the walls. It is important not only to choose the right tile, but also correctly put it, which in the future will ensure its durability. If you apply for repairs by yourself, you will save a lot of money. But in this case there is a risk that the required quality of work will not be achieved. In addition, do not forget that modern construction firms give warranty on the repair work they have done. This applies to the installation of tiles.
Laying the tiles by a specialist will make the bathroom repair more expensive, however, the quality of the work will be excellent.
If you decide to put a tile in the bathroom, then you will primarily be concerned about the cost of such repairs. The price calculation depends on many parameters, among which the most important are the following:
- The person performing the finishing.
- The state of the surface of the walls and the floor in the bathroom.
- Area of work.
If the installation is carried out independently, the repair cost will consist of the costs of the tools and the materials themselves. With the involvement of specialists, it will automatically increase by the amount of payments for the work done. Then the cost of money will be significantly increased. One of the savings options is not resorting to the services of a construction company, but hiring a shabashnik. When choosing the latter method, it is worth paying attention to the existing risk. After all, the construction company gives a guarantee of the quality of the work done, and the hired master is unlikely to give it to you.
If the surface of the walls or the floor of the bathroom is problematic, you will not be able to lay the tile without prior alignment. Your expenses will increase by the purchase of building materials and tools for these works. Do not forget about the surcharge of the specialist. The account for laying the tile does not contain an item on the removal of the old covering. These works must be produced by you yourself. If you for some reason did not do this, then it is worth adding the cost of cleaning the walls and floor in the costing.
The final calculation of the cost of repair directly depends on the area of decoration.
It is measured by summing the parameters of the surface of the floor and walls with the deduction of window and door openings. The higher the value of the total area of work, the higher their cost. All these factors affect only the costs associated with laying tiles.
The total cost of tiling is calculated based on the final price of the finished finish. Its calculation is as follows:
The cost of laying the tile depends on the size of the bathroom, the number of tiles, the pattern, the condition of the walls and the floor.
- The declared cost of works on 1 meter must be multiplied by the total area of walls and floor, which require finishing.
- We take into account the produced surface leveling with the help of plaster, puttying or plastering with plasterboard sheets.
- Add the price of the tile, which depends on its type (ceramics, marble slabs, granite tiles).
- Working with simple pictures costs an order of magnitude cheaper than selecting an image.
- Tiles around the tub or shower are laid out more difficult and requires more effort than just on the surface of the wall.
- We take into account the availability of additional services, such as leveling or removing the old coating.
- For cutting tiles may require a surcharge.
All these parameters constitute the final price for the finishing work. If you need to calculate the total cost of repairs, then you should take into account the cost of materials and tools. In addition to the tile itself, you will need the purchase of trowelling compounds, glue for tiles, bases for leveling and other components.
Even the most careful calculation of the funds that you will need to put the tiles in the bathroom is unlikely to save you from unforeseen expenses. After all, during the process of laying, situations may occur that require additional costs and time.
The cost of tiling depends on the region of your residence. The average price in the territory of the Russian Federation is from 600 to 1000 rubles per square meter. m for laying ordinary tiles, from 800 to 2000 rubles / sq. m. m for marble slabs and from 700 to 1200 rubles per square meter. m for porcelain tiles.
