When it comes to a property’s bathroom and kitchen, property owners often do not want to take a risk with their home’s aesthetics and, as a result, often avoid DIY tiling. After all, there is nothing better than a professionally tiled bathroom or kitchen. What’s more, great bath and kitchen tiles can often be ruined when people try to fit them themselves. While a professionally tiled bathroom offers elegance and sophistication, personally tiled walls can look a little rough around the edges. Ultimately, tiling is an art and, in order to make your property the best it can be, should be left to the experts.
Becoming a tiler
In order to become a professional tiler and eventually earn a profit from a tiling business, you will need to complete a tiling course that teaches you the tricks of the trade and qualifies you as a tiler to practice in a professional sense.
There are numerous tiling courses out there and, at Flush Bathrooms, we favour UK Protiling Training, the company who helped us begin our career in the tiling industry. Darren, the lead UK Protiling Training instructor, provides a clear, well-directed understanding of becoming a professional tiler and will tell you everything you need to know in order to start a successful tiling career.
A career in tiling offers you the opportunity to go self-employed, which is a dream for many people. Ultimately, a self-employed tiling position means that you can organise your own working hours.
The are huge advantages when you are in control of your own work. For example, you’ll have much more opportunity to miss the rush hour work’s traffic and commuter rush, and you’ll also have more flexibility in your work. The main thing is that you are able to work around your customer’s requirements.
Earn a respectable living
Of course, when it comes to being self-employed, there is an element of insecurity and fear of not earning enough wage. That said, professional tiling is generally considered a lucrative career and tilers can earn roughly £20 per metre (for fixing only). When you relate this to a standard, 25 metre bathroom, a professional tiler is looking at earning around £500 in 2-3 days.
