Yes, the bathroom is the smallest room in the house, but it’s also one of the most important.
An old shabby, mouldy dated bathroom is one of the biggest turn-offs. Let Renew turn your bathroom or ensuite into a shiny space that makes you feel clean and happy just by looking at it, and one that is going to add value to your home.
For a tiny space, the bathroom is one area where the cost of renovating can easily blow out. A full bathroom renovation calls for a lot of specialty trades and plenty of fixtures to be installed.
Roughly speaking, an average bathroom or ensuite renovation will start from $12,500 if a brand spanking new one is on the agenda.
One of the most important aspects when renovating a bathroom is the waterproofing of all walls and floors before any new tiles or fixtures go back in.
Waterproofing is a critical component and the foundation of any good bathroom or ensuite renovation. Put simply, without good professional waterproofing in place, your bathroom won’t last – water damage is the reason why some bathrooms just won’t last and the biggest cause of house damage. Water damage will lead to rotting timbers, mould and attracts termites. Waterproofing is something you should NEVER do yourself.
Tiles can make or break your bathroom, stay clear of wild, wacky or trendy patterns as they make your bathroom date too quickly. Also beware of highly polished gloss floor tiles, add water and someone is going to crack their head on the bath, and you’ll constantly be looking at hairs. It’s also important to know that tiling is not a DIY project as it’s a skill that requires practice and a bad tiling job is very noticeable and a badly tiled bathroom will not add any value to your home.
From drab to fab
Do you still have one of those old shower screens from the 1980’s with brown-tinted glass with the wire through it? Perhaps you still have 1970’s wallpaper, yellow/red/green fixtures and brown floor tiles and no storage….
