My kitchen is 15x20 with a vinyl floor. How much would it cost approximately to remove vinyl and install ceramic tile?
There are three things to consider; Site prep, install and cost of materials.
The site prep would involve removing the vinyl and levelling the floor. Removing the vinyl may be a challenge if it contains asbestos. I would strongly recommend you get it tested before you start the project. Levelling is essential to the success of your install. This may involve a full plywood sub-floor.
Install costs will vary depending on the tiler you hire. Like most trades, there are good ones and not so good ones. I suggest you speak to a few previous clients and look at some pictures to see the quality of their work. I usually budget for $10 to $15 per square foot.
The cost of tiles will determine your budget. Start will some tile speciality shops in your area and check out Home Depot as a comparison. Somewhere in your journey, you'll see the perfect tile. Expect to pay $5 to $15 per square foot.
The last piece of advice I would give you is to consider the age of your kitchen. If your floor and kitchen are the same age, you may consider remodelling the whole room. Seek out the advice of a professional design builder in your area. Trying to do a renovation one trade at a time is the most expensive way to do it. You may even end up redoing some things twice. Good luck with your project.
