We're getting a substantial extension to our kitchen which will result
in an L shaped area of about 40 square metres in total. I've looked
into a number of flooring options and had several quotes (to be honest
this is unlikey to be a diy job for me) but they are all frighteningly
high. A quote for Karndean supply and fit came in about £2,200. The
cheapest possible tiles from Topps come in at about £350 but with
adhesive, ply sheets, grout and fitting, comes to a total of about
£2,000. We're also a bit worried about ceramic being cold, and
thought underfloor heating could take care of that and eliminate the
need for radiators but that would add over £1500 to the cost.
Do we have to resign ourselves to the fact that for a half decent job
it's going to cost serious money, or are there alternatives we've
£2200 for Karndean fitted - they're having a laugh. It's really rather easy
to fit yourself, especially with the "PS" adhesive. This makes it a PLEASURE
to lay. Please search for my previous posts on the subject!
I originally had a quote for ISTR about £650 for supply and fit in a
medium-sized bathroom. Did it all myself for just the materials - approx 1/3
of the cost. If it all went pearshaped I could have bought all replacement
materials to have another go and still been quids in!
