Bathroom Design and Bathroom Ideas

You will get to the bathroom you want faster if you help yourself clarify your thoughts up front, before talking to a company of experts (like Bathroom Craft!) to execute the project for you.

Let’s consider some important concepts for any successful bathroom renovation.

Interior Design

This basically has to do with the outlook or appearance of your bathroom. Interior design as a part of the bathroom renovation process is the perfect way to give your bathroom that fantastic appearance you envisage. Here is where you have the flexibility of giving us your design idea or taste which we’ll work with you to bring forth something amazing.

We can give your bathroom that incredible and elegant interior design that’ll perfectly depict your style. Not only do we give you a gorgeous bathroom interior design, but we also renovate to make your bathroom feel comfortable for you.

FlooringTiled Bathroom

The basement of your bathroom is another important part to renovate when considering a renovation. Basically, the common choice of bathroom flooring tiles, this is because it is waterproof.

Floor tiles come in various designs, textures and quality. At Bathroom Craft, we can help you with the selection of the best and suitable products for your bathroom.

Electrical WorkBathroom Renovation Auckland

This is the most crucial part of bathroom renovation. If you experience any damage in your bathroom electrical setup, get in touch with us right away to take care of it. It is well known that water is a conductor of electricity, as such, it is important that any electrical leakage be taken care of in no time.

Plan Ahead

Decide how big this project should be. Will you be replacing walls, floor and ceiling? Do you want to keep something, like the cast iron bath?  Or should all fittings be replaced?  Which services — electrical, plumbing, ventilation will have to be moved? If you have answered no to most of these questions you could get the work done for less than $10,000, making this a partial renovation.

 Select a Style

Broadly speaking, do you want a bathroom design for a villa, modern design, a design that features natural materials, funky fittings or one with a real wow factor. It’s time to check out magazines or bathroom ideas online – or we can show you a catalogue of styles to help hone in your tastes.

Choose Materials

If you are going for standard cabinetry, tiles and fittings, this can be straightforward with a few visits to different retailers but please take advantage of our experience on the wide selection of the best and most durable materials for your project.

Create a Budget

Think about the reason for renovating and what is necessary to achieve that. Don’t make the mistake of putting together a wish list and ploughing ahead without adding everything up. Seeing the cost of the items you have selected for purchase, then factoring in services like plumbing and electrics will give you some idea of where your budget will land, and what your priorities might be.

Get The Best In The Business

The next step is to contact a company with expertise in this area who can provide accurate assessments of the trade costs involved, as well as trade purchasing benefits to get a more accurate project cost. Then you will want to hire someone who can do the work and manage the project for you, ensuring you enjoy smooth progress from start to finish. May we recommend Bathroom Craft?

Things to Consider in Renovation That Influences Cost

Bathrooms AucklandThe price of your bathroom renovation varies depending on what you want, the level of comfort and luxury you want your design and materials being used. 

You should ask yourself several questions before embarking on a bathroom renovation project. Some of the questions you should ask are:


  1. Am I Renovating for Comfort or Profit?

Most times, there is always a big reason behind your consideration for bathroom renovation. You think of it yourself, are you renovating for comfort or for profit? It’s very possible you get tired of your old-fashioned bathroom and decide to overhaul it for something crisping, refreshing and modern. If you want a luxurious bathroom, definitely you should be ready to spend much money.

Also, if you’re renovating a bathroom for profit, you should definitely consider the possible value you can get from investing in a renovation. If you have houses you lease out to low-income earners, definitely you’ll want to consider spending less money on the bathroom renovation when needed. It is better off to consider keeping the bathroom moderate than making it look too luxurious.

  1. How Big Is  My Bathroom and What  Materials Would I like To Choose?

Depending on the quality you want to achieve, you can create ballpark figures based on a per square metre area.

The size of a bathroom determines the cost of renovating it.  Also, if you decide to go for luxury bathroom accessories, that’ll result in more cost compared to going for moderate quality accessories.

  1. Do I Have A Budget Limit?

Bathroom Craft can create complete bathroom solutions for almost any budget.

If you have a generous budget for the bathroom renovation project then you can go for a high-end renovation package as you’ll definitely get that luxury elegant look. If you have an extremely tight budget, you should definitely go for a conservative budget renovation package or contact your renovation company for a custom renovation based on your budget. This is one of the benefits you’ll enjoy from BathroomCraft.

  1. What Is My Timeframe?

Contracting a specialist bathroom renovation company like Bathroom Craft is one of the best ways to ensure a bathroom project is completed on time. Tight timeframes can also be achieved but compressing the timeframe will usually incur higher costs. 

You need to consider how much time you have for the execution of the project as this can impact on the cost.
