Do tilers charge more for laying "sheets" of tiles?

Do tilers charge more for laying "sheets" of tiles?

Don't see why it should cost you more per hour. They will cost you more because they will take longer to lay. |They also use far more grout though that is not overly expensive.

Yes grey is the good colour and if it get matches with the tiles than the cabinet should be also of the same colour such that it looks matching and really nice. So go for that.
