How much does a bathroom renovation cost? It depends on quite a lot of factors. One of bathroom project managers can help you with the budget and will mention other things you need that you may not have thought about. They will know how much everything costs and can suggest inexpensive but stylish options for the bathroom renovation.
On average, bathroom renovations cost $1800 per square meter. If you have a medium sized kiwi bathroom, the cost can be around $17,000 for a basic renovation or up to $30,000 for a premium bathroom renovation. The difference is $13,000, and the difference it will depend on a variety of factors and inclusions such as electrical upgrades, quality of mixers and tiling.
But for a budget bathroom renovation for under $10000 -These are some basic prices to be aware of:
Prices are + gst
You also need a plumber, builder and an electrician (if any electrical upgrades are included), so the cost of their labour needs to be considered on top of the purchase price for your accessories.
Simply by adding or replacing some fixtures, concepts or standard items, your bathroom can become a stylish sanctuary. If your bathroom is in good condition ie: you don’t have to spend money fixing rotten floors and walls, you can do a bathroom makeover for $10000 that will make a huge difference.
It sounds like a small change, but updating your bathroom fittings can make a big difference. When selecting new fittings, think about how they work with the rest of your bathroom features like the tiles and colour scheme. Silver tapware reflects the light nicely and can add a contemporary, high-end finish. Don’t buy the cheapest tapware – you’ll find out why its so cheap in a year or so when you start having problems with it and it needs to be replaced. Speak to your plumber or your local plumbing hardware store for advice on what suits you best in your budget.
The type of shower enclosure you choose for your bathroom can have a big impact on the overall aesthetics of the space. The average cost of a shower enclosure ranges from $500 – $1,900 + gst + installation. To help minimise costs of installing the shower enclosure, consider using a shower tray, shower walls and a framed glass shower screen.
If you are looking to cut costs and stay below $10k but make the most of your bathroom makeover, instead of changing your toilet, simply updating your toilet seat can add to the overall look and feel of the bathroom plus installing a new seat is very simple.
Updating the flooring is one of the most effective ways to improve the bathroom after fresh paint. Linoleum is no more a cheap and boring option! There are a lot of styles and available in laminate from wood grains, to tile and slate looks, checked patterns, plain colours and subtle fleck styles, plus they do not rot.
Linoleum flooring is made solely from raw, all-natural and biodegradable materials – including linseed oil, wood and cork flours and tree resin. For this reason, linoleum may be preferable to consumers who are environmentally conscious.
The placement, size and style of the vanity will impact the overall design of the bathroom space. The average cost for a vanity ranges between $400 – $1500 + gst + installation. A budget vanity would generally be acrylic or polymarble and the cabinet would typically be made of laminate timber.
A fresh painted bathroom looks amazing. It is possibly the one thing that can be done to immediately improve a bathroom like nothing else
If your bathroom mirror is looking a little dated and small, it may be time to consider installing a new one. There’s an assortment of shapes and sizes that can dramatically alter the look of your bathroom. Mirrors create the illusion of space, even in the smallest of bathrooms, so we suggest finding something larger – it will help create the illusion of space and create more light.
So for a bathroom renovation under $10000 that looks great, for the average size kiwi bathroom that has no floor, wall or plumbing issues and leaving everything in its place –
we can upgrade the shower and vanity, change out the taps & mixers, lino the floor & paint
