Tiled Shower Installation Costs vs Bath Planet
Tile installation requires a significant amount of time, labor, and resources. Here is an all-inclusive outline of the total cost of tile installation;
Cost of Labor
Installing a tile size of approximately 12×12 to 24×24 up to 36” long on a clean floor with no requirement of demo or floor prep costs $7-$9 per square foot.
Cost of Tile
Tile can range in cost from $3 a square foot to $15 a square foot or more. On average I would budget $7 a square foot for your shower wall tile and $15 a square foot for your shower floor tile and accent tile.
It is important to choose a tile that is not only in your budget range but also one that doesn’t require much labor, as this would jack up the installation costs.
You should also consider:
- Demo existing shower tile at $5 per sq ft
- Floor leveler at $2 per sq ft
- Waterproofing the shower at $4 per sq ft inclusive of both material and labor
Tile vs Bath Planet
In total a tiled shower can cost $15,000 to $20,000 when done by a professional contractor. It takes about two weeks to complete.
A Bath Planet Shower costs between $7500 and $10,000 and can be completed in just two days.
