Tile Installation on a Budget

According to a report published in Statista in 2019, the rate of tile consumption in the market was forecasted to grow in a gradual but consistent positive trajectory. This was due to the increase in the popularity of this decor solution in both commercial and domestic settings. By 2021, a Statista report published by researcher M. Garside stated that the worldwide consumption of tile textiles had reached an astonishing 18.2 billion square meters. 

Although the popularity of Jackson WY Tile installers has risen in stock in recent years, clients are still concerned about the potential expenses involved when undertaking such a venture. Some effective ways you can initiate a tile installation on a budget include:

Affordable Material Alternatives 

There are numerous options to choose from when it comes to tiling materials. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are arguably two of the more popular options available in the world, with millions of units sold each year. The average cost of porcelain and ceramic tile installation in the USA depends on several aspects such as its placement and the grade involved. Exterior installations can cost between $14 and $80 per square foot, while interior projects average between $13 and $60 per square foot. It should be noted that these numbers include additional expenses such as labor and other logistics. Wooden tiles cost an average of $3 to $6 per square foot, depending on the type of lumber involved. The overall cost will total between $10 to $18 per square with the addition of labor. Reclaimed wood can be sourced at $2 to $4 per square foot. It’s essential to note that the kind of lumber you choose for your tiles will play a significant role in their longevity. Opting for hardwoods is recommendable when working on a floor tiling project. 

Source your Supplies 

Although undertaking a DIY approach with an extensive project is not advisable without prior experience, sourcing your supplies can be a good way to bring the overall cost down. Looking for specific categories like designs that are now considered outdated and have been discontinued and orders that were produced and never delivered can be a great strategy if you’re willing to mix and match your options. You can also target direct suppliers who offer wholesale prices for their products. As long as you have enough time on your hands and are willing to keep an open mind, you’re likely to come across multiple solutions that suit your particular needs. It’s also important to steer away from bespoke solutions and target mass-produced options. Customized solutions are always going to represent a significant investment when looking for quality, while production tiles from established manufacturers maintain an acceptable standard without raising their prices. 

Consider the Most Appropriate Size 

The particular dimensions involved with your Jackson WY Tile project can also play a significant role in the overall expenses. Generally speaking, the cost of larger tiles such as 24X24 per unit is more expensive than alternatives such as 12X12. However, buying smaller tiles in bulk can end up being a more expensive venture than larger alternatives. This is due to the simple fact that it will take a lot more tiles to cover the same area as their larger counterparts. It’s worth noting that the difference in pricing between extra large and standard-sized tiles is generally just a couple of dollars more expensive than standard-sized alternatives, and as such represent the better choice when seeking bulk products.
