Shower and bath accessories
hi tamdaz, mal has a thread "building the carlisle monaco", he has just mentioned that the tiled niches in his showers cost $200.00 each

Spa pump access?
It doesnt really make a difference. You can easily access the pump from the outside. Just make sure the cover they put on the outside will be watertight. Or at least not…
Glass shower wall
thanks for the help. I looked around in the kitchen forum and it seems to be about $300 - $800 sqm so i may just limit it to the splash back in the kitchen.

Matte or Gloss tiles?
I am using matt white 600 x 300 in all my bathrooms and powder rooms, I love it for a change from the gloss I have had in the past. Depends on what you like yourself.
