What are the current bathroom design trends?

Open plan has been a design stronghold for years, so it makes sense that it would somehow work its way into our bathrooms. Homeowners are moving away from smaller cordoned off showers and opting for wet rooms. They offer plenty of opportunity for luxury in the form of mosaic tiling, monsoon showerheads, and lush decorative fixtures. Floor to ceiling tiles are easy to clean and feel high end, but do require full waterproofing.

What is the process for renovating your bathroom?

Bathroom renovations in Nelson encompass several key stages, commencing with bathroom design and budgeting. The project initiates with demolition, removing old fixtures and walls. Subsequently, rough-in plumbing and electrical work is carried out to accommodate new bathroom designs, followed by framing and drywall installations.

The next phases involve tiling and flooring, cabinetry, fixtures, and paint. Lighting, electrical, and plumbing fixtures are then integrated, ensuring adherence to local codes. A final inspection and thorough cleanup prepare the space for finishing touches, encompassing accessories like shower curtains and mirrors, with any remaining adjustments carried out before project completion.

At Refresh, we have a structure 5-step process that allows us to complete renovations on time and within budget, see the renovation process here.

How much will my bathroom renovation cost?

Without knowing the scope of your project, it’s impossible to determine an accurate cost. But here are a few examples to give you an idea of what’s achievable at different price points. 

A simple bathroom renovation with little to no changes to the layout, new cabinetry and fixtures, and a walk-in shower is going to start around $20,000*. For larger, more luxurious bathroom renovations, it is recommended you budget closer to $50,000+*.

Your Renovation Consultant will give you an accurate quote according to your specific plans, and this is before any work begins so you can make adjustments if necessary.

Does renovating my bathroom add value?

Renovating a bathroom is a strategic investment that often enhances a home's value, making it an attractive proposition for homeowners seeking to boost their property's appeal. This holds true for homeowners working with bathroom renovation companies from simple shower renovations through to full bathroom overhauls. The improved functionality, aesthetics, and energy efficiency resulting from a bathroom renovation can significantly elevate the overall worth of the home.

Such upgrades not only cater to the homeowner's daily comfort but also cater to potential buyers, creating a competitive edge in the real estate market. Ultimately, these bathroom renovations prevent devaluation over time, showcasing the wisdom of such investments in enhancing a property's value.

Do I need consent to renovate my bathroom?

Bathroom renovation consent requirements vary by location and the scope of the project. For minor cosmetic changes like fixture updates, permits are often not needed. However, significant plumbing, electrical work, structural changes, or changing the use of a space usually require permits and inspections to ensure compliance with local building codes and safety standards.

Your Nelson Renovation consultant will work with you to ensure your bathroom renovation complies with local regulations and support you with any consent requirements.

Why is bathroom design so important?

Custom bathroom designs are a crucial element in any renovation or construction project, emphasising the importance of thoughtful planning. A well-crafted bathroom design can yield significant benefits, both in terms of functionality and cost savings. By incorporating smart layouts and selecting energy-efficient fixtures, homeowners can expect long-term savings, avoiding the need for frequent repairs or replacements.

Furthermore, a custom bathroom design, tailored to the specific needs of the household, allows for the anticipation and resolution of potential bottlenecks before they become problematic. In essence, it not only enhances daily comfort but also serves as a preventive measure, ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of the bathroom, making it a valuable investment.
