What do I need to consider when looking to renovate my bathroom?

While every homeowner will have different preferences in terms of style and personal taste, most homeowners will agree that functional and low-maintenance bathroom designs are important to them. To achieve this, you’ll want to consider whether or not you want tiles or a smoother, more low-maintenance surface in your bathroom such as vinyl.

In terms of layout, the placement of bathroom vanities, towel rails, bathroom heaters and mirrors will all influence the feel and practicality of your space. When you work with Refresh, a designer will guide you through all of these considerations and more.

Features you can add to your bathroom renovations

When embarking on your bathroom renovation, consider these optional features to enhance the space. 

Upgrade to Modern Fixtures: Swap out old faucets, showerheads, and cabinet hardware for contemporary designs to give your bathroom an instant facelift.

Functional Storage: Convert underutilised areas into functional storage solutions. Consider adding built-in shelves, recessed cabinets, or vanity units with ample storage to keep your bathroom organised and clutter-free.

Luxurious Soaking Tubs: This can become a focal point in your bathroom, offering a serene and relaxing retreat for unwinding after a long day.

Walk-In Showers: These are not only visually appealing but also practical, offering ease of access and a sense of openness.

Stylish Lighting: Lighting fixtures can enhance both functionality and ambiance. Consider wall sconces, pendant lights, or modern vanity lighting for a chic and well-lit space.

Quality Flooring: Invest in high-quality flooring materials that are both stylish and durable. Options like porcelain or ceramic tiles, luxury vinyl, or hardwood can elevate the look of your bathroom while withstanding moisture.

How much does it cost to renovate a bathroom in Manawatu?

Bathroom renovations that Refresh NZ have carried out in the past have fallen anywhere between $30,000 - $95,000*. However, every project is different. Your bathroom renovation may cost more or less depending on the condition of the space that will be renovated, your project specifications and whether or not council approval will be needed.

Some of the most affordable bathroom renovations will focus primarily on cosmetic changes and will leave the original layout as is. Changing/adding layouts and structural work within your home will cause the cost of your bathroom renovation to increase. For a cost estimate accurate to your project ideas, please speak to your local Refresh Renovations Consultant.

How does Refresh’s design and build process simplify the home renovation experience?

When you work with Refresh, you’ll be working with one Renovation Consultant and their team. We’ll take your ideas on board to form a stunning design and then manage the construction, installations, council applications and decorating - providing you with an enjoyable experience and a fantastic new bathroom.

Case Study: A modern redesign for this Hokowhitu bathroom

In her 1950s bungalow, Anne-Marie faced impractical and unattractive bathrooms - two separate spaces with dated timber-clad walls and rippled windows. Seeking a transformation, she received an estimate from her Refresh Consultant and proceeded with the renovation.

The team delivered minimalist, sophisticated designs that combined the separate toilet and shower in one space, modernised a second bathroom with a stylish bathtub and vanity, and introduced lustrous floor-to-ceiling stone tiles for a contemporary touch. The bathrooms now feature sleek black elements, including a glass partition, dual shower heads, towel rack, LED bar light, and floating vanities with mirrored medicine cabinets.

"We were really impressed with the process, the genuine interest in our renovation, and the amazing attention to detail from Michael. The sub-contractors were great too. Many thanks to TJ as well for the fabulous customer service; at the beginning during the enquiry stage, keeping us up-to-date throughout the renovation, and even through to the admin and invoicing."
