Dylan and his renovating team of contractors did a perfect job. You can see he’s built my dream bathroom to the highest of specs and with an amazing eye to details. I found him on the internet and wasn’t a personal connection but he was so professional from quote, to reference and throughout the whole project. His pricing was competitive too.

The renovation requirements
We renovated the upstairs master bathroom in this home as well as the converting the separate Toilet and Laundry into a new downstairs bathroom. The master bathroom was quite large at 2.8m x 2.5m in size which included an old spa bath that had to be removed so that a new free standing bath, walk in shower, new vanity and toilet could be installed. Downstairs we had to remove the wall between the WC / Toilet and the old laundry to make it a single combined room to build a new bathroom. 

It is possible to renovate two bathrooms at the same time in a home with the right planning. Some of the features included;

  • Heated floor tiling
  • Marble subway tiled backing on the wall niche
  • Marble black and white floor tiles
  • Marble pieces around the window reveal
  • Three ribbons of black and white marble along the top part of the wall.
  • Installation of a white Turner Hastings bathtub 
  • Custom built nib wall to conceal the toilet 
  • Custom wallpaper on nib wall to match the hallway interior styling
  • Heated towel rail
 
What did our renovation contractors complete?
It took about 7 weeks for both bathrooms to be renovated with a budget of $60,000. Some of the products included;

 

3m x 3m bathroom renovation layout with bath and walk in shower

One of the unique aspects that Passion Built offers when renovating a bathroom is to provide 2D/3D bathroom design planning as part of our consultation steps. This means we can help you visualise the layout and look of the bathroom by using virtual design tools. Every element can be planned and then we provide the drawings to our team of contractors to construct.

Designing the bathroom in this home was made easy for two reasons;

  • There was plenty of existing space available with a room size of nearly 3m x 3m which makes it easy to place a toilet, shower, bath and vanity
 
  • The owner didn’t want to relocate or move anything from their existing locations. So that meant the toilet, shower, bath and vanity would be re-instated in the same position as the original bathroom. Therefore there wasn’t any complications in terms of trying to fit multiple things or work on different orientations.
 
Using the virtual design software makes bathroom design planning a very easy process with an ability to try different ideas before committing to beginning the renovation.

Replace an old corner spa bath for a new freestanding bath tub

Passion Built can help home owners remove an old corner spa bath, convert an existing bath into a shower or add a shower into an existing toilet or laundry. This type of customisation enables a home owner to make their home feel more modern by removing old elements as needed. New products and interior design ideas can be used to build.

In bathroom design, the bathtub remains a center piece for relaxation and rejuvenation. While traditional options like corner spas, alcove tubs, and recessed tubs have served their purpose well, freestanding bathtubs offer a modern alternative;

Enhanced Aesthetics: Freestanding bathtubs, finished on all sides, become a sculptural element within the bathroom, elevating the overall aesthetic. Their placement flexibility allows for creative positioning, drawing the eye and creating a luxurious atmosphere. They come in a wider variety of materials like stone resin, acrylic, and even cast iron, allowing for a more customised design aesthetic to complement the bathroom’s theme.

Design Flexibility: Unlike built-in tubs confined to corners or alcoves, freestanding bathtubs offer greater placement freedom. They can be positioned for an optimal viewing position, even centered in the room for a symmetrical layout, or placed beside a window for a spa-like connection with nature. Freestanding bathtubs can potentially be incorporated into existing bathroom layouts with minimal plumbing modifications using the same waste and water supply points.

Space Requirements: Freestanding bathtubs typically do require more floor space than traditional built-in options. This might be a limiting factor in smaller bathrooms. They can also be a more expensive investment compared to traditional built-in tubs.

Matching the interior design of a bathroom renovation with the living areas

Most of the time home owners will style their bathroom to compliment the interior design of the rest of the home, but not necessarily match it exactly. In the case of this bathroom renovation the home owner wanted us to build a nib wall to create privacy for anyone using the toilet. They used the extra wall space in the bathroom to create a feature wall that used the same wallpaper that was in the hallway.

This creates interest in the bathroom as soon as you walk in, but also fosters a sense of harmony with the rest of the home, giving the bathroom a sense of luxury.

Bathroom renovation interior design ideas

Custom made glass shower screen

The modern way to build a new walk in shower is to leave it quite open and then install a custom made glass shower screen. The minimal use of any type of material means there is no space wasted with a bulky frame or wall. It is also easier to clean and lets light flood the room in all corners.

For this bathroom renovation the screen included a black window frame style to then match the wall and floor tiling.

a seat installed in a walk in shower

Most walk in showers will just be an open space to walk in and out of. Although for this walk in shower design they wanted an area to be able to sit on or place a foot on. This can make showering more practical and safe.

timber vanity

Timber can be used in bathrooms to add character. If you have seen a few of our bathroom renovation before/after examples you will see just how good they can look in nearly any style of bathroom.

For this renovation the unique black design of the vanity matched with the benchtop and sink just ooze elegance and luxury.

Checkered floor tiling

Most bathrooms will have a single colour floor tile used and typically the same one that is used on the walls. For some situations using a checkered floor tiling pattern can be a great alternative to add a touch of style to a bathroom.

Wall niche in the shower

You can get a wall niche installed in a new walk in shower or near a bath to create a practical storage solution. Instead of using hanging ranks, floor stands or shelves with suction cups the wall niche is a simple, easy way, to keep everything close at hand.

New bathroom designs
Building a new bathroom or renovating an old one in Alexandria can definitely add value to your home, as long as the renovations are done properly and with the right materials. When considering a bathroom renovation, it’s important to ensure that you have all the necessary elements to make the space functional, including a shower, toilet, vanity and bathtub.

  • A shower is a must-have for most people, as it provides a convenient and efficient way to get clean. Make sure to choose a shower that is large enough for two people and has enough headroom, if needed.
 
  • Toilets are also important (no kidding right) and you should consider a model that is efficient, easy to clean and has a low profile to make the most of the space if there isn’t much room. Sometimes a concealed cistern system is a wise choice.
 
  • Vanity units are essential for storing bathroom essentials and can be used to add extra counter space, too. Choose a vanity that matches the style of the bathroom and has enough storage space.
 
  • Bathtubs can also add value to your home, especially if you have a larger family or enjoy relaxing in a warm bath. While they can take up a lot of space they are especially suited if the home needs to be used by a family with small children or it is placed in an ensuite to the main bedroom.
 

Choose your own materials
When renovating your  bathroom, it is important to choose high-quality materials that are durable and attractive. This includes tiles, taps, shower heads and other fixtures. We always recommend a fresh coat of paint to give the space a new look and feel. Additionally, consider incorporating energy-efficient and eco-friendly features into your bathroom renovation, such as low-flow toilets, shower heads and taps which can help reduce water and energy usage. These features not only help the environment, but can also lower your monthly bills.

 

Fixed price quotations
Regarding cost, bathroom renovations can range from a few thousand dollars for a basic renovation to tens of thousands for a complete overhaul. It is important to have a budget in mind and stick to it, so you don’t overspend. Renovating a bathroom in Alexandria to include a shower, toilet, vanity and bathtub can add value to your home, as long as the renovations are done properly and with the right materials.

Adding a bathroom with a combined laundry to a home in Alexandria can potentially add value to your home. However, the actual value added will depend on various factors such as the quality of the construction, the market demand in your area, and the overall appeal and functionality of the addition. Here are some considerations:

  • Increased Functionality: Adding a bathroom and a combined laundry to a garage can enhance the functionality of your home. This addition provides convenience and versatility, especially if there are no existing bathrooms or laundry facilities in the garage or nearby. It can be particularly attractive to potential buyers or renters who prioritise having these amenities readily available.
 
  • Additional Living Space: Converting a garage into a usable space with a bathroom and laundry can effectively increase the liveable square footage of your home. This can be advantageous when it comes to property valuation and appeal. However, it’s important to note that converting a garage may impact the availability of covered parking, which could be a factor for some buyers.
 
  • Market Demand: The demand for properties with additional bathrooms and laundry facilities can vary depending on the specific market conditions in your area. Research the local real estate market and consult with real estate professionals to understand the preferences and expectations of potential buyers or renters. Consider whether the addition aligns with the needs and desires of the target market.
 
  • Quality and Design: The quality of the construction, finishes, and overall design of the added bathroom and laundry will significantly impact its value. Ensure that the space is well-designed, functional, and visually appealing. Using high-quality materials and fixtures will also contribute to the perceived value of the addition.
 
  • Cost vs. Value: Consider the cost of the addition relative to the potential increase in property value. Evaluate whether the expenses involved in construction, permits, and any necessary modifications are justified by the potential return on investment. It’s advisable to get estimates from reputable contractors and compare them with the estimated increase in home value to make an informed decision.
 

Remember that adding value to a home is not solely dependent on a single renovation project. It’s essential to consider the overall condition of the property, its location, and other factors that influence market value. Conduct thorough research, consult with professionals, and weigh the costs and potential benefits to make an informed decision about renovating your bathroom in Alexandria.
