How much does it cost to renovate a designer bathroom?
There’s essentially no quick answer to this question, and the cost depends on the features involved in your renovation. According to the Housing Industry Association, the average cost of renovating a bathroom in 2019 was $17,522. So, you’re generally looking at between $12,000 and $22,000 on average for your standard bathroom. A designer bathroom, on the other hand – you’d be looking at a minimum of $30,000.
This figure can vary depending on a number of factors, including the size of the bathroom, the type of repairs being performed, and the company hired to complete the work. It also depends on whether or not your renovation includes gutting your old bathroom, relocating pipes and other features, and installing new luxurious fixtures such as heated flooring, intricate tiling, and frameless screens. You’ll also need to take into account things like lighting and your bathtub design.
How long does a designer bathroom renovation take?
Again, it depends on what you’re having done. But you’ll need a minimum of two weeks for tradespeople to be inside the home for a basic renovation. That’s not including the 2-3 weeks spent prior to work commencing, where you discuss your design and ideas with your builders. And this timeframe is for a very basic renovation.
If you’re after a renovation that’s truly designer, with intricate features and fittings, you could be looking at two months, or more, to complete the work. If you want to get in touch with our team, we can discuss your requirements and give you a better idea of the timing.
Do designer bathroom renovations require council approval?
When it comes to designer bathroom renovations, determining whether or not council approval is needed can be difficult. Internal repairs usually don’t require council approval, unless they include structural improvements. If the building is Heritage Listed, it will also require approval. And it’s possible you’ll need to take into account environmentally vulnerable rules and bushfire-prone rules that have additional criteria, depending on where you’re located and how much work you’re getting done.
Essentially, the requirements can differ between councils, and there are state and federal regulations to consider as well. Check with the professionals at Crystal Bathrooms – we’ll be able to give you the right advice.
How to start planning your designer bathroom
Planning is essential when considering how to create a designer bathroom. It’s generally a large investment, so you want to get it right – and of course, being a bathroom, it needs to be functional. The first thing you need to do is think about the design. Choose a design that suits your vision, including the following considerations:
- Colour scheme
- Replace or remodel shower and tub?
- New fixtures and fittings?
- What sort of storage space do you need?
- Where are all the pipes?
- Location of the electrical wires
- Shelves and cabinets
Make sure the layout is practical and that it suits the overall size and style of the bathroom. You don’t want a cluttered bathroom, so keep that in mind when planning. Once you have some ideas, or if you’re struggling for ideas, get in touch with the team at Crystal Bathrooms! We’ll be more than happy to assist you.
How to renovate a designer bathroom: step by step
Step One: Find out if you are legally allowed to renovate your designer bathroom. You might watch someone on TV renovating their bathroom and think – “I can do that easily”. But you need to keep in mind that the cost of designer bathrooms is often a lot more than a general bathroom renovation. And in some states, such as New South Wales, you actually have to be licensed to complete any residential building work over $5,000. By licensed, you need to be qualified to do carpentry, joinery, plumbing, electricity, or tiling. For all waterproofing work, a certificate is also needed.
Step Two: Hire a professional. A designer bathroom isn’t something you want to mess up, so your best bet to save time, money and stress, is to get a professional to do the work for you! Get in touch with the team at Crystal Bathrooms today to learn more.
