Passion Built can renovate your bathroom whether it is in a house, unit or retail shop. We have been doing more and more bathroom renovations in recent years as house owners have realised it is one of the best ways to add value to your home quickly. Bathroom design has changed a great deal during the last 20 years and a lot of Sydney homes have small bathrooms that are typically 3m x 3m in size. Although for a lot of floor plans there might be a laundry or linen cupboard that can also be used by changing the configuration of the walls to create more space to work with. Passion Built can even help move your bathroom plumbing so that a room can be re-configured to suit a new design layout.
3d Virtual bathroom INTERIOR design included with every renovation
MASTER BATHROOM RENOVATOR
A modern master bathroom
This house owner had a very standard 1990’s style bathroom with very simple white on white tiles, toilet and basin. For this master bathroom the idea they had for their bathroom was to use floor and wall times combined with natural timber to give them the feeling of being in a luxurious day spa. So for this master bathroom renovation we completely demolished the room to have a clean slate to work from and replaced everything for a complete makeover. We loved using the Abi Interiors Milani progressive mixer and spout set from their brushed nickel range that adds a touch of elegance to the room.
UNIT BATHROOM RENOVATOR
A kids bathroom with bath tub
Here is another bathroom renovator example where the 1970’s style bathroom with a soft yellow colour palette that had become quite dated. The use of space in the room wasn’t very efficient and it gave it a cramped feeling. This bathroom also had a shower and was mainly used as a kids bathroom so one of the most important renovation ideas was to install a new bath tub. We completely demolished this bathroom and installed brand new floor and wall tiles to give it a bright, fresh look.
BATHROOM RENOVATION WITH BATH TUB
A bathroom with shower and bath tub
This is an example of the types of bathroom renovator projects we can complete in Sydney. This house owner had a very standard 1980’s style bathroom with very simple white on beige tiles, toilet, basin, shower and toilet.
The property owner wanted a small bathroom with a bath tub, new shower and vanity. They had already chosen large format floor and wall tiles. We used that for inspiration to create their new floor plan using our 3D Virtual interior design software to visualise how everything would fit. You can see some initial ideas in the photo gallery and ultimately the floor plan was changed to create a layout that placed the bath tub as the focal point in the room.
The toilet, vanity & shower were all moved around so that as soon as you open the door you see the incredible white free standing bath tub. We also integrated mood lighting and wall niche areas to make storage simple and easy.
Frequently Asked Questions
The most frequent questions asked about HOME RENOVATION IDEAS.
Do you do bathroom remodels?
Yes we are a bathroom renovation company in Sydney that can help with remodels or renovations to suit your budget. The benefit of a full renovation is that everything from the floors, walls and fixtures are brand new to give you a long lasting, high quality, bathroom.
Can you renovate a bathroom and laundry?
Yes we can renovate a bathroom and laundry. These rooms are often sharing a wall so sometimes they can be combined.
Is it cheaper to renovate or rebuild?
In most cases it will be cheaper to renovate or remodel parts of your house than it would be to completely rebuild.
Each method has its pros and cons but if you are on a tight budget then you can use some clever renovating techniques to keep costs in control, but give your home a new look.
Normally it can be 20-30% more to do a rebuild vs renovating.
How much do renovations cost in Australia?
According to Hi Pages the average cost to renovate a living room is between $10,000 and $15,000. Although this average changes quickly if the flooring is going to be changed, walls moved or expensive materials are used.
Bathrooms & kitchens will typically cost between $15,000 and $30,000 to do complete room renovations but these rooms will also add the most value to a property compared to adding a garage or doing landscaping.
Where do you start when renovating a house?
We often joke and say the best place to start is the front door and work your way back from there. Although, on a more serious note the first place to start when renovating your house is to get renovation ideas. You have to use those ideas to create a very clear renovation brief that will cover the main goals, budget, timeframe and purpose of your project.
This will mean that all your decisions are based around achieving a goal with some very clear parameters to follow. This will then dictate where you need to start before you begin renovating.
What are the types of renovation?
Generally speaking there are a few types of renovations that many people will consider. There is no definitive list as every situation is different but most common are;
- Bathroom renovations
- Kitchen renovations
- First floor additions
- Room extensions
- Renovation remodels or makeovers
How can I renovate my house cheaply?
The first thing to consider is there really isn’t anything cheap about doing a house renovation properly. You could renovate your house cheaply by becoming a licensed builder and doing it all yourself, although most people don’t have the time or desire to do this.
Renovations can be done simply if they focus on changing the existing elements within a house for example re-painting can be a cheap way to renovate with a fresh coat of paint giving a new room or living area a fresh look. Other ways to renovate cheaply might be to change things like light fittings, tap fixtures, benchtops or even the flooring to freshen up a room.
Which home improvements add most value?
In most cases improving your bathroom or kitchen can add the most value to your home. Although this will all depend on how much you are prepared to spend, the value of your property & its location.
Spending over $50,000 on a bathroom renovation for a rental property bathroom will probably not make much financial sense considering its intended use. Although adding parking or an extra room to an inner-city property could be extremely beneficial.
So there is no single improvement that will add the most value, it becomes more important to consider the context of the renovation and what you are trying to achieve with it.
Can you renovate a house for $100K?
Well for sure you can spend $20K, $50K or $100K to renovate a house although whether that is a sensible amount to spent will depend on your situation. If it is retirement time & there are no other concerns beyond having an enjoyable life then it won’t matter too much what is spent.
Although, typically most people are trying to renovate a house with an eye on increasing its value, therefore you have to be careful how much is spent. There will be a point where the value of any renovations won’t proportionally add value to your home. Generally speaking if the property is worth $500,000 then you should aim to spend around $50,000 and focus on the big areas like the kitchen and bathroom.
How do you renovate an old house?
Renovating an old house isn’t as simple as it seems. There are many properties in Sydney which are heritage listed so the first step is to check your local council requirements and get help from someone like Sydney Heritage Consultants to make sure any alterations are in accordance with local requirements.
If it is just an older home the first thing to have checked is to make sure all the structural elements are sound before planning your renovation. Older full brick homes are typically more difficult to work with compared to timber veneer houses like the ones in Merrylands.
