While I understand a quote per unit area on large jobs, it does not make a lot of sense for small jobs, or jobs with a lot odd shapes.

While it’s tough to find someone to lay tile flat & straight, it’s near impossible to find someone that can center it...

I have been quoted 200 THB per Sqm by a contractor remodeling my house. However there is also the materials cost (apart from the tiles which I will choose/buy). I would like to consider getting the materials myself or make sure that the price he charges is reasonable. Beyond the 200 THB for the labor and whatever I pay for the tiles, how much should I expect to spend on the other materials per sqm?

Paid a fixed price for laying a large patio, plus the tiling. I bought the tiles.  Very fair way to go about the job.

Much depends on the quality of the material.

Each to their own and good luck with it all, you might, however, want to ask yourself how long it takes a tiler to lay 1 square metre of tile for the 120 baht mentioned above and the relationship between that price and the average daily wage in Thailand! The fact is, large numbers of Thai people won't even begin to understand the concept of price per square metre, until you introduce the concept.

My Thai builder (55yo) has a list of everything by the SQM - it's the starting place when we work out the cost for a project with him. They are just a father and son who work together and hire local labors when needed.

In my experience you have to check that the workmen know how to lay a tile properly.  I've seen some who just put a blob of cement in the middle of the tile space and  squeeze the tile down.  It often doesn't spread evenly and you end up eventually with tiles that crack at the edges

That’s why it is important to hire the very cheapest day-laborers to perform skilled labor...
