How much does bathroom tile cost. Part 2. Inexpensive imported tile

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. The information presented below has to do only with wall tiles. The prices below represent an approximate average, since every factory is constantly changing their 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.

So if you have a limited budget, yet you want to use only imported tiles, what is it that you can expect? Before you read on, please remember that the tile price is going to include transportation costs, rather large ones, thus the most inexpensive imported tile might be either of low quality or old design.  You might be better off choosing Russian tile (see Cost of the bathroom tile. Part 1.) or a slightly more expensive imported tile.

There are rich reserves of high-quality clay in Ukraine, so even lots of Italian factories are importing Ukrainian white clay.  There is a wide selection of pretty good tile manufacturing factories in the country. The distance to Russia is not that large, so, thanks to low transport costs, the final retail price of the Ukrainian tile in Russia comes out to be rather attractive.

Calculating the cost of tile for the bathroom. Inexpensive imported tile

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 650 rubles per meter, the total sum is going to be 11 960 rubles.

  • Как рассчитать количество плитки на ванную
    Add a percentage for the trim: 7-10 percent. If you are really trying to save money, you might not add any extra percentage and just buy it later. 11 960+ 7% = 12 797 rubles.


  • You can add borders if you’d like.  The price for the borders from the above mentioned factories is in the range of 150-750 rubles per border (there are certainly more expensive ones out there, but we are only considering cost-effective versions).  In order to calculate the amount of borders, you need to divide the length of the wall by the length of the border. For instance, with the horizontal stacking that is parallel to the floor of one row of borders at a particular height, if the border is 20 cm long, for a two-meter long wall, it will take 2:0.2 = 10 borders. Therefore, our bathroom that is 2x2 meters is going to take 10x4-3 (these are the borders that we are not placing where the door is) = 37 borders. With the price of 350 rubles per border. The total cost is going to be 12 950 rubles.

  • Как рассчитать количество настенной плитки
    Add the cost of the floor tiles (with some extra). The area of the floor times the price per meter. We have another article that talks about the cost of the floor tile, but for a rough estimate of the price for a cost-effective floor tile we are going to take 600 rubles per meter.  The total sum is going to be 2x2x600=2,400 rubles. With some extra it is going to be 2 400+7% = 2 568 rubles.

    Optionally, you can add inserts. Insert – is the tile of the same size as the background tile, but with richer décor.  You can place them wherever you like – most often people put it above the bathtub. The cost of the inserts for a cost-effective tile can vary greatly as well, but majority is in the range of 300-800 rubles per piece. If you would like 10 pieces you are going to have to pay 10x400 = 4 000 rubles.

  • Сколько стоит настенная плитка
    Add up the total cost based on what you want to use in the design of your bathroom. In our case, the bare minimum is going to consist of the price for the wall tile + price for the floor tile = 11 960+2 400 = 14 360. This is the price without any extras or any decors. The price with the extras: 12,797+2,568 = 15,365. The price with all decors and borders: 15 365+12 950 +4 000=32 315 rubles.


Thus, the average cost-effective version of the bathroom renovation, is going to be anywhere between 15 and 32 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).

Let us reminds you that if you would like to calculate the most inexpensive option, you should look for domestic tile. See article Cost of bathroom tile. Part 1
