Each of these again have many sub-types . Price range is also huge. Marble Prices usually vary with place and demand.
For Example: If your house is 500 sq feet with 350 sq feet carpet area. lets say you end up ordering 350 sq feet of Marble for complete flooring. Here’s how you will calculate the cost
Rate of a some type of Italian Marble is Rs. 350/sq.ft
Hence your cost will be 350 * 350 = ~ Rs. 1.20 Lakhs
Alternatively, you can also use Marbonite Tiles which will save you lot of money. Or you can have combination of both – Marble and tiles.
Now let’s talk about labour cost. Main activities involved in getting new Marble flooring are:
1) Breaking ( if you have existing flooring this will need to be removed)
2) Fitting cutting of Marble
3) Mirror Polishing
I spoke to one Contractor to get rough estimate for Marble flooring for some city like Chennai or Bangalore.
Carpet area of 350 sq.ft ( a typical 1 BHK home )
15 x 350 Sq. Ft = Rs 5250
Fitting, Cutting of Marble With Material
110 x 350 Sq. Ft = Rs 38,500
Rate(Rs. 25) 25 x 350 Sq. Ft = Rs 8750
Total = (5250 + 38500 + 8750) = Rs. 52500
Above Rate for fitting includes material like sand cement and other Material. Does not include Marble cost
