Flooring Cost Guide

If you’ve got a flooring project on the cards, it’s important to find out how much it’s probably going to cost. This will make it easier for you to plan the work and start it at a convenient time. We’ve come up with a simple flooring cost guide for 2024 to give you an indication of how much your project is likely to cost.

General advice

Do plenty of research

Before you can find out more about prices, you need to know what you want. What type of flooring material do you want? Where do you want it to go? Do you have a particular colour scheme or look in mind? Knowing these details will help you work out what prices to find out about. Also have a look at your local flooring stores like Tapi and Carpet Right to get a better understanding on what material you want to go for. Remember to get comparison prices though as the stores are usually more expensive, meaning you could be wasting £000s but not shopping around. For more information see our Flooring Buyers Guide so you can make the right decision.

Calculate a budget

You also need to have an idea of how much you want to spend before you start your flooring project. Make sure that the figure you come up with is realistic – it needs to be enough to pay for a quality job but you also need to avoid spending more than you can afford.
