Another outing to a local bathroom and kitchen place this afternoon to get some more ideas for the house build and the costs involved. They had a huge range of bathroom accessories and were less impressive on the kitchen side of things, which is reflected in this post.

Floor tiling is an area I haven’t costed to date and I got some help here:

Large 60 x 60 floor tiles. We will be using these throughout the inside. Around $10.00 m2.

Same per m2 cost but half sized. Some here specialised for walls.

Plenty of choice although I think that the stock you see is the supply you get a problem I have read about in the building forums.

More.

Back into bathroom basins and what a huge range of cheap options there are here. Taps are extra.

Bsin

$100.00

$

$125.00. Pretty classy.

$

$80.00 for basin $210.00 for the tap! More expensive because it is a mixer hot/cold. Most Thai bathrooms only have cold water. A non-mixer tap would be a third of this price.

I quite liked this square benchtop idea $125.00 for the basin.

Mixer hot/cold tap.

More glass $

And again $300.00. I don’t know what this would cost in Australia but I am thinking several times this.

Small glass option $

A small glass option for only $130.00. You can see by the thickness of the glass that this is quality stuff.

For something very different $

For something very different $300.00.

Now that's what I call a shower head.

Now that’s what I call a shower head. This is what I am putting into our place with all the supporting equipment to ensure a “real” shower.

Complete with mixer tap around $500.00 so not cheap.

Back to toilets $

Back to toilets $75.00. No soft close lid though 🙁

Am getting two of these at $

Am getting two of these at $1,200. Heated seat, cleans you and has a massage option. I will never be seen outside the bathroom. I especially like the flower in the cistern idea. Very classy. Maybe a toothbrush option if you aren’t into flowers.

One for small kids or pet monkeys:

Small - lovely.

I was talking in the first inclusions blog post about the Thai concrete kitchens and how you just insert the doors and drawer units. This is what they look like pre-install. Concrete frame and tiled fronts. I don’t think we will be going down this path unless the budget is looking pretty sick.

A concrete kitchen.

So I have done bathrooms to death. As you can see there is excellent choice here and the costs seem extremely reasonable to me. I can’t remember what I last paid for basins and toilets in Australia but I am sure it was a lot more for a lot less than I have shown you here and in the previous post HERE.
