Westerns , Indians & Arab expats each have his own way of life. It’s very difficult to answer this question, any ways I’ll try
Shared accommodation is available from the rates of 30KD/month to 70KD/mounth.
Unfurnished 1 bedroom flat costs 150KD/mounth to 190KD/month.
Furnished 1 bedroom flat costs 170KD/mounth to 220KD/month.
Unfurnished 2 bedroom flat costs 180KD/mounth to 250KD/month.
Furnished 2 bedroom flat costs 220KD/mounth to 350KD/month.
Unfurnished 3 bedroom flat costs 300KD/mounth to 400KD/month.
Unfurnished 4-9 rooms flat/villas costs 450KD/mounth to 1800KD/month (wide range depend on location, neighborhood, area,…..)
Anyway furniture doesn’t cost much respectively and it’s available to door to door.
Available in all brands in rent and installment systems from 60KD/month to 250KD/month, I don’t recommend old cars. Installment system may be rare these days or need the guarantee of a Kuwaiti because of the crises.
This defiantly different from culture to another I’ll try to give my imagination.
Arabs & Indians about 10-15 KD / person /month.
Westerns about 25-35 KD / person /month.
Indian restaurants from 0.5-6 KD/person/meal.
Arab restaurants from 3-10 KD/person/meal.
Western/American restaurants from 3-8 KD/person/meal.
Not easily available and a little bit costly.
Cafes about 2.5-7KD / person (not including food)
Sports / health clubs from 20-70 KD/month.
Fishing sea trips about 400-600KD /trip for 10 persons for 1 day.
Indian/Pakistani schools 200-500 KD/kid/year.
Arab schools 200-500 KD/kid/year.
Arab/Muslims language schools 1800-3000 KD/kid/year
English/Canadian/American schools 1500- 2500 KD/kid/year.
I hope I had helped
