How much does it cost per square foot to put down tile?

I want to install a new kitchen floor.

Depends on the tile but the cost is universal within a few cents. Just expect to never go below a dollar per square foot and never over five.

It depends on the type of tile you want to put down. Ceramic tile is the cheapest and can cost as little as $1 per square foot. Porcelain tile is slightly more expensive followed by natural stone products like marble, travertine and slate. All would require a tile cutter of some sort and thinset and grout to set.

The cost of hiring someone to lay your tile can vary, depending on how many square feet you are having installed. As a general rule, the more square footage you need to cover, the lower the cost per square foot. Prices will generally start around five dollars per foot, and could go as high as twelve.

The cost varies greatly depending on the quality of the tile you choose to install as well as the complexity of the pattern you decide to use. An expensive tile such as granite will cost about $30 per square foot, while less expensive options may cost as little as $5/sf. Smaller tiles and ocmplex patterns will cost more.
