Average Bathroom Renovation Cost in Auckland for 2020

A Bathroom renovation might seem simple and straight forward. This however is far from the truth. The fact is that a bathroom renovation is the most complex of all renovations due to the number of trades involved in a relatively small space.

Average bathroom renovation cost in Auckland 2020 can only be determined when all the various factors are considered. Trades involved in a bathroom renovation include a designer, demolisher, plumber, electrician, tiler, water proofer, installer, painter, grouter, and plasterer. Imagine managing the above trades within a small space. You can easily understand why organisation and planning is key to a bathroom renovation. Bathroom renovations typically should take about 2-3 weeks to complete if you have a project manager on site managing the trades for you.

Managing the trades on your own comes at a risk of either blowing your budget as you are dealing with so many different companies or extending the timeline of your project. Our first advice would be to get a company that provides project manager as part of their service.

But more on project management later, lets talk about the costs related to bathroom renovations.

Before you renovate your bathroom ask yourself the reason for your renovation and plan from there. Once you have determined the reason for your renovation then we can work out a plan and costs related to them.

Why do you need to renovate your bathroom?

Having a plan will ensure that you are spending your money at the right places.

Different families have different needs to renovate a bathroom. The fittings they choose and the choice between a bathtub or shower or both will be determined by your reason to renovate.

1.      A young family

A young family has very different needs compared to a mature family with older kids. If you have a toddler or a new baby on the way and there is no bathtub in your bathroom then it would be a wise choice to include a bathtub for your renovation.

2.      Growing family/Increase convenience

A growing family might mean that you need more space for adults to live comfortably in the house. This could either mean creating a separate toilet or dividing one en-suite into a toilet and a bathroom. If you have space in your home, then you can add an entire bathroom to increase convenience.

3.      Adding Value for Re-sale

We advise clients to not over capitalise if you are looking at adding value before a sale or renting your home. Renters and buyers alike prefer homes where they do not have to renovate. They want homes that are updated with little or no need of repairs.

Generally speaking, bathroom renovations add $1.50 for every $1 spent. People looking at selling their home should look at using simple yet updated products and fixtures. There is no need to buy a designer sink costing you $3000 if you are selling as that will not yield any return on investment.

 

4.      Improving quality of living/Adding a luxury bathroom

If you are renovating with the idea of adding comfort and a bit of luxury, then overcapitalising is not a bad idea at all. You can opt for a Wet room style bathroom if you have a small space, create a spa like feel or even splurge on that $3000 sink. The possibilities are endless depending on your budget.

So how much does it cost to renovation a bathroom in Auckland? – NZ Average

Once you know your exact reason to renovate then you can start planning your budget for your renovation. If you are carrying out your renovation through a renovation company then your renovation would include demolition, supplying of products and fixtures, installation, water proofing, flooring, painting and most importantly project management.

Difference in prices for a Standard, Mid-Range and Premium Range mainly is due to the type of supplier range you choose. Most companies will have a range of different suppliers that they work with to provide tailor made renovations for different client needs. For example, if you are opting for a standard bathroom renovation then Bath and Tile would be your supplier option from the company. If you are looking at a more premium range, then Reece would be an option.

(All types of bathroom renovations include demolition, supply of products and materials such as flooring vanity shower bathtub, water proofing, installation, plumbers, electricians, installers, painters, plasterers and a project manager to oversee the renovation)

 

Standard Bathroom Renovation    

$18,500 – $21,000                                              

Standard bathrooms would mean a total demolition of your previous fixtures and upgrading them with mid-range fixtures/materials. Little to no change in your existing layout. This type of renovation is most suited for people looking at adding value before selling or renting. This is also a good option for families looking at upgrading their bathroom on a limited budget to add convenience and a more modern look to their bathrooms.
Mid-Range Bathroom Renovations

$22,000 – $27,500

Mid-Range bathrooms mean that you can utilise and incorporate a more premium range of fixtures and materials.  A change in layout is also a possibility depending on your layout and its feasibility. A change in layout might need consent from the council if you are changing the toilet from its previous position. Mid-range bathrooms often include a bathtub and a shower.
Premium and Luxury Bathrooms

$28,000 and upwards

Luxury bathrooms involve a high level of customisation in terms of layout and architecture. The supplies and materials available to clients are from our premium suppliers that have specialised or one of a kind styled bathtubs or showers. These bathrooms can also be called designer bathrooms as the involvement of our designers is more pronounced. Spa bathrooms with waterfalls etc are an example of luxury custom bathrooms.

 

Average Toilet Renovation Cost

Most homes in Auckland have a separate and often neglected toilet. Usually the space is small, there is the old style discoloured Vinyl flooring and an a toilet hardly to be proud of. If you are renovating your bathroom then this would be a good time to consider renovating your toilet as well. This would save you time as both the bathroom and toilet can be renovated side by side. Generally it works out cheaper if the toilet renovation is done together with the bathroom renovation so there is no double up in labour/resources and product.

This includes removing all fixtures, toilet, basin (if any) and accessories in the bathroom before re-tiling. It takes about 5-10 or so working days per toilet, and new accessories have to be purchased prior to commencement.
