We are organizing the floor tiles ourself for all the non wet rooms of the house, and decided today was a good day to go out looking and maybe pick up a bargain in the end of year sales. For ages I have loved this polished concrete tile but could never really justify the costs, so figured I would have to settle on something inferior. We looked a Beaumonts and found a couple we liked, at about $60 sqm, which was really pushing the budget.
So we decided to check out the Tile Liquidators out at Port Melbourne, as they were having a sale on already discounted stock. So we wandered around, quite impressed with the selection of tiles and how cheap they all were. Then lo and behold, in the back row, MY TILE!!!!!!! Exactly the one I loved, 600 x 600, polished concrete, at........ $38sqm! I couldn't believe it. Hubby loved it too, so no need to convince him
So checked with the sales guy, and he said there was plenty of stock coming in, as that isn't even a seconds tile, they order that in as stock, so we could get what we wanted all from the same batch! So it only cost us $2800 for out floor tiles, when I had budgeted about $4000! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!
BTW, anyone looking for their tiles, check this place out, they had great stuff http://www.tileliquidators.com.au/
