My Toilet Journey

Recommended Posts

Just want to share the cost for those intending to redo the bathrooms.

Shifted in to my current place about 5yrs ago and at that time I didn't do up my bathroom as I kinda like the pink and blue bathroom fixtures. Also I hired Intradesign to do up my place and my focus then was mainly on the living areas hence didn't allocate any additional budget to do up the bathroom but it was always on the back of my mind to reno both the toilets...

I have been pondering to do up my bedroom toilet for sometime and 3 weeks ago I took the plunge and went to the same contractor above for a quote but to my horror he came back with a amount of $4000 for the same work he did 2 years earlier...so this time round I decided to go direct.

Wall tiles from Hafary

Floor tiles from Hafary $947

Cabinet/ Basin from Spazio

Basin tap from Spazio

WC

Mirror

Plumber to remove and install fixtures

Tiler to provide labor to overlay tiles and clear debris $1,000

I save close to $1500 the 2nd time round without compromising on the workmanship, I was most please with the responsible tiler boss whom came down and help out for a few days to ensure he can handover the work on time.

Selecting this tile design was the reason why the cost went over $900.

Hi newbiee,

I may need to build a toilet in the kitchen, i.e. dismantle cabinets that was built by previous owner in the kitchen washing area.

Kindly share the contacts, please.

Thanks.

Hi newbiee,

Nice Reno! I'm also looking at the same WC, but the sales told me that this model's flushing power is not so strong as it's water tank is not as high as the normal type.

Any problem with the flushing power of this WC?

Thanks

Hi,

Your 3524 dollar includes hacking of all wall and floor tiles or just over with overlaying on the existing one? I am thinking of doing up my resale 4 rooms toilets too. Thank you.
