This article is primarily for those of you who are thinking of making house renovations, and want to come up with an estimate of how much might these renovations cost. Therefore, we are going to use some basic concepts and simplify things a bit. For those of you who are professionals, please try to be understanding.
The tile is imported from various countries; it is produced from diverse materials, and has different qualities. Naturally, given such variety the price can vary quite a bit. In order not to get lost in this jungle, let’s take a look at what could a bathroom renovation cost. Let’s start with the most costeffective option.
So, if for your bathroom renovations you would like to spend a bare minimum, you should look for domestic tile or tile from Belarus. The key here is in the absence of customs payments and low transportation costs, since tile is a rather heavy material and it is expensive to haul it from one country to another. And, of course, electricity and labor costs are lower (even though some factories complain that the salary is lower, but with all of our taxes. TC and welfare requirements, it comes out to be almost the same as in the west).
The prices below represent an approximate average, since every factory is constantly changing the collections and different dealers use different prices to sell tile. Almost every factory is going to have a couple of collections that are less or more expensive than the prices indicated below.

Calculating the cost of tile for the bathroom. Economy version
In order to calculate the cost of tile for your bathroom you will need to
Take the area of the bathroom (sum of the walls’ areas) and multiply it by the price per square meter. For instance, if your bathroom is 2x2 meters with the ceiling being 2.5 meters high and the door being 2x0.8 meters, the total footage is going to be 2x2.5x 4  2x0.8 = 18.4 meters. With the prices being 350 rubles per meter, the total sum is going to be 6 440 rubles.
Thus, the average costeffective version of the bathroom renovation, is going to be anywhere between 8 and 15 thousand rubles for the tile expense. Naturally, the bathroom sizes are highly individual and you can pick a slightly more or less expensive tile in this category.
Do not forget that you still need to pay for the cost of grout, the cost of tile adhesives, leveling materials for the walls (if necessary), and the labor (if you do not lay tile yourself).
