this will depend if you need to put a new sub floor down. Just tileing will be from $6 to $9 a sqft.

Additional information is required before your question can be answered with any degree for reliability.
1. Do you want bathroom tile on the floor, walls, or tub/shower splash?
2. What is the substrate of the surface that you want tiled?
3. Have you selected the tile?
4. Have you determined the pattern?
5. What is the existing surface that you want covered?

The labor costs for a basic tile job for new construction should be around $5.00 per square foot. Any demolition and replacement of unsuitible surfaces add to the cost. And, of course, the material costs associated with the tile and pattern selection heavily influence the ultiamate cost of a bathroom tile job.

When selecting tile, consider pattern complexity. The more complex the pattern, the higher the labor cost. Also, consider existing decor, plumbing fixture cabinet and finish, etc. Tile comes in a variety of mind-boggling colors, patterns, and finishes. Think about what accessories you may want if tiling the tub or shower surround (soap dish, corner shelving, niches). And, finally, do not forget grout color and texture.

Good luck.

Please be wary of ANY square footage costs!

ANY tile project cost will vary greatly depending on the type of tile, size of tile, angle/layout of installation, grout & mortar required, etc.

Gather as many estimates as you can after you select a specific tile and always remember to ask your friends & Angie's List for referrrals!
