    If you're talking about tiling 20 square metres , that would be in the region of £600 on its own ( some tilers may charge a bit more or less ) before adhesive , grout and all the kitchen removal / refitting stuff . I charge between £25 and £35 per sq mtr , depending on the job ,(some may charge more some less)

    so why ask if it is 20m2 then, 20m is 20m it would be some kitchen if it was 20m x 20m =400m2

    Sounds a bit cheap to me, We get £30 per M2 in the midlands, that would include cutting down plinths and fitting doorbars, but not supplying anything, and not getting rid of rubbish.

    Just thought I'd say it a second time (but a bit slower) , for you to understand it properly , without taking it the wrong way - * ....

    And another thing , 20m2(as you put it) means 20 mtrs squared ie:- 20 mtrs x 20 mtrs = 400 <u>square</u> <u>mtrs</u> , which is different from 20 square mtrs (20mtrs x 1 mtr = 20 square mtrs)
    - <u>metres SQUARED</u> and <u>SQUARE metres</u> are different , basic maths ,I did'nt ask if it was <u>20m2</u> (20mtrs squared) , I asked if it was <u>20 square mtrs</u> , which you did not make clear , you just said 20m , which sounded like a DIY'er who did't know the correct terminology (which you may well be), and another thing , you did'nt say previously that it was 20m x 1m , you just said 20m . I think you are in the wrong game boy , try something a bit easier on you're pea- sized brain like road sweeping - if you want to have a battle of wits , bring some ammunition next time ...

    to be honest you should be looking nearer £700.dont forget porc can be tougher than ceramic or travertine to work.you need to take tool wear into account as well.no good charging that amount then having to find you need to fork out for a decent cutting disk as well!
