    Cost of kitchen counter

    Basic concrete and tile kitchen counter. 2.5 m long X 60 cm deep X 87 cm high. One shelf, plain white tiles. I will buy the doors. What would be a reasonable price?

    Thanks.

    You don't specify. Labour and materials incl. Labour and materials separate. Daily rate or job rate.
    A difficult question as it stands.

    Flat rate for the whole thing other than the doors.

    Forreachingme's post is too subtle for me to understand. I take it you are suggesting the above would be a fair price. Thank you for that.

    Surely the top would be constructed of reinforced concrete prior to tiling. That then would need to be left to season before the forming can be removed. Causing a delay in the build.
    That's how mine were built. Sorry no photo's, me camera's gone a bollix.

    PS. My toilet/shower room cupboards were built in the same way. Each builder has their own methods.

    Should be. Yes would need to cure before tiling. More detail needed. Number of doors wanted would be good to know.

    Thanks. Two doors. I have a quote of 10,000 not including the doors (4,000/meter), but including one metal shelf (didn't really understand exactly kind of metal/construction) - he said it comes in 1 cm or 2 cm, and tiling the bottom shelf which will be level with the bottom of the door, and 1 side (other side is flush against a wall), as is the back. 3 days to do it. I don't know his ideas on the top - maybe do it offsite and let it cure a couple of days before starting here.

    The guy had a a couple of very good ideas and was recommended by large supplier - people in Sattahip will know who he is - Khun Saek/Max. I thought the price was a bit high which is why I asked here, but it sounds like it was not. Nevertheless, I'll offer him 9,000 and see how it goes.

    He may have precast in mind. Available in several thickness and sizes.

    I'm not familiar with metal frame construction but 10k baht sounds a fair price. 9k even better.
    Ask if he has any photos of stuff he has done.

    Luckily for the OP, the best quality [and variety] ceramic tiles can be found here.


    .....shouldn't be over 10K, depending on which Thai craftsman one acquires.

    I meant I don't know exactly what he was referring to regarding the shelf composition and design. I have to ask more about that. The counter would not be metal framed.

    Forget about common floor tiles for the counter top.

    Get either wood.

    I think even Ikea stock them. See these:

    Kitchen Countertops - Laminate & Wooden countertops - IKEA

    Or do big slate tiles.

    Granite would be best. They usually charge about 2,000 baht per meter.
