BATHROOM RENOVATION QUESTIONS

how long does a bathroom renovation take?

Bathroom renovations can take between 2 and 8 weeks to complete depending on the complexity of the project. If it is a house with easy access and there are no complications with the wall structures then it can be faster compared to maybe a bathroom unit revovation with limited access via a lift or stairs.

Sometimes renovations can be delayed due to changes of room plans, product shipment shortages, weather or other unforseen circumstances. Every renovation project is different but will have a specific timeline drawn up to keep you in the loop along the way.

There is lots of information available online to help you estimate your renovation costs. We always recommend property owners to do their own research first because it will help set the right expectations when it comes to renovation costs.

Many people fall into the trap of thinking you can renovate a bathroom for less than $5,000 and this might be true for a remodel when using existing products but just the cost of a bath, shower screen, new vanity, sink and tiles can cost that much if you are replacing everything.

Using our Bathroom Renovation Cost Guide will give you the steps you need to estimate your costs.

how much is a high end bathroom remodel?

A high end bathroom remodel could cost $40,000 or more and a lot will depend on the size of the room and the products that are used for the renovation. A freestanding bathtub can cost between $600 or over $6,000 depending on the material chosen. Then you need to consider tiles, vanity, cabinets, lighting, tap mixers and all the other items needed to complete a room.

There are some incredible high end bathroom brands with amazing design, finishes and reputations of high quality production. We work with local bath designers who create amazing bathroom renovation remodel ideas.

Sometimes you might want to move your shower plumbing to change the floorplan of your bathroom. This could help create more space in the room, make space for more light or even ventilation. The ability to move the shower plumbing will depend on the type of property. 

Nu-Trend has renovated bathrooms in units, apartments, houses and commercial properties over the years. Sometimes it is quite easy to move plumbing if the foundation of the property is elevated and we can get access to the pipes. If it is a cement slab or in a high rise unit block then it can be more difficult to move the plumbing as it may require cutting into the concrete to relocate the waste pipes.

how to start planning a bathroom renovation

It isn’t too difficult to start planning for a bathroom renovation, the first step is to work out your budget and allow maybe 10 or 15% for adjustments. This will mean you are working to a fixed amount and can break down the available budget to the different areas of your renovation.

You need to think about what the purpose of the renovation will be, how large is the room and the long term goal ie renovating for profit or trying to improve a small bathroom to make it more usable.

Sometimes you might want to move your shower plumbing to change the floorplan of your bathroom. This could help create more space in the room, make space for more light or even ventilation. The ability to move the shower plumbing will depend on the type of property.

how much does it cost to install a vanity unit

The cost to install a vanity unit has to be separated into supply & installation. There are pre-made vanity units that will range in price from $100 to over $2,000 depending on the material, style and brand.

To install a vanity will then depend on how much work is involved in the room especially e.g it is a straight replacement or does it require the plumbing to be altered to accomodate. The location or access to the room needs to also be considered, as well as whether all the taps are being replaced. So the cost to install a vanity will vary between $300 to $1500 but we can provide a free quotation.

how to choose tiles for bathroom

Choosing tiles for a bathroom can be a daunting excercise, it is a bit like choosing what colour to paint your house or what new piece of clothing to buy. So much will depend on the style of bathroom you are trying to create and what is the purpose of renovating the bathroom.

If you are renovating a small bathroom in a unit for a rental property then maybe the choice is quick and simple using white tiles to keep the room bright, fresh, appealing to a wide range of people. You might be renovating to add a touch of luxury to your property so you might use dark stone colours to create the look of a luxury spa.

In some situations you might use two or three tile types where one is used as a feature all, another for the floors and a neutral style for the walls.

Nu-Trend is a small bathroom renovation specialist. We have loads of experience renovating small bathrooms in Bronte, Alexandria, Marrickville and Hurstville for example. We have also done lots of renovations for units and apartment blocks where there are very small room spaces to work with. 

The steps needed to renovate a small bathroom are similar to any other project where planning is really important. For small rooms a lot of thought needs to be put into the floor plan, the shape of the furniture and things like light or ventilation.

It is possible to create a feeling of space by using large format tiles, frameless shower screens and a vanity that floats above the floor so visually you can see to the corners of the room.

how much value does a renovated bathroom add

A fully renovated bathroom can add $50,000 or more to the value of your property. It will all depend how well the room has been renovated, the materials used and how large the bathroom is. 

Some property owners might do a cheap bathroom remodel and replace the taps, toilet and shower screen which will freshen up the room but won’t add any real value.

A complete bathroom renovation can make the house feel modern, fresh and brand new, especially if the kitchen is also renovated at the same time – they are the two most important parts of any property.

The cost to demolish a small bathroom will depend on its age, the type of building and the location. If it is a house with single level, flat access then this will be easier to demolish compared to a small unit on the top floor of an apartment block in Elizabeth Bay.

So it means there can never really be a set cost to demolish a bathroom as every situation will be completely different. In some cases it might be the removal of all the products leaving the tiles and in other examples it could be stripping completely to the wall studs.

how much does it cost to move plumbing

The cost to move plumbing will vary based on the location of the property & the type of building foundation. If the property has crawlspace foundations then it is easier to move pipes vs one that is on a concrete slab foundation or part of an apartment block.

Normally new holes would need to be cut to suit the new floor plan, the items moved, piping adjusted and then the old holes repaired so you can reinstate the floor. Waterproofing also has to be assessed and the remedial work will vary depending on the circumstances. 

Moving your plumbing means you can change the layout of a bathroom to make more space for a shower, lighting or ventilation in a room.

Project managing a bathroom renovation can be quote stressful and normally it is part of the service that Nu-Trend offers. We are experienced at managing renovation projects to ensure each step is organised and there is little disruption to your daily life.

Nu-Trend will manage things like the demolition, rubbish removal, product supplies arriving all the way through to painting, electrical, tiling and the final clean up.
