“To me it just seems like he just slotted in like he’s always known us, there was no awkward moments…he was just a part of the family…very personable, easy to talk to and always calm all the time and thats what we really liked..”

Wattle Downs, Auckland




Transcription

I just wanted to give a lift to this house, renovated and make it look nicer and to use it we always had old vanities and everything, so I just wanted something new and something modern. We were just looking for someone that does everything – that’s what we needed.
When I called Superior Renovations, the lady said Jimmy will come and see you. So they gave us a time and a date. When he came, we told him what we wanted and he took it down on his paper and it was easy peesy – he made everything look easy.

The project was done quickly too, so Jimmy was very easy to talk to too and to understand. I wanted a bit like pale colors to make it look spacey – like I think dark colors make it look smaller and thats the idea we had so Jimmy allowed us to pick the tiles and fittings and everything – so that was quite nice, he didn’t just put what he wanted to put.
He asked us to come to the showroom and pick the tiles, the vanities, the fittings which was really good thing to do. So we picked all the pale/whiter tiles – it looks smaller before and now it looks a little bit bigger now I think because of the tiles and the white paint Jimmy and the team has put.

Yes I have already spoke to Jimmy and Kevin about Superior Renovations to do the kitchen. What you guys did with the bathroom – was so impressed, so so impressed. I think the kitchen, once we’re ready, we’ll have Superior Renovations, Jimmy and his team to come and do it. Because of the bathrooms, we’ve come to trust him, we’ve come to like his work and the trust is a big thing. And to keep everything in the budget was very important to us, and Jimmy/Kevin and with all the renovation team I think, with the kitchen we won’t be going over budget, I think it will be the same experience we had with the bathroom.

Thats the reason why I even told Kevin and Jimmy I won’t go looking for any other renovation company for the kitchen, because I like you guys. I wasn’t here during when he was doing it so, I just saw the end result which was really good. I mean we told him what we wanted and he just put it in and he did it, and the end result was what we wanted. It just looks nice and better then we thought, it was really nice dealing with Jimmy.

To me it’s just like he just slotted in like he’s always known us, there was no sort of awkward moments or any thing like that, just a part of the family – part of the family almost He was very personable, easy to talk to, and was calm all the time, that’s what The way they were calm about everything, I think is also important, it helps keep us calm, because doing a renovation can always be scary but with you guys, working with you guys it’s been very peaceful, it was fantastic.

Five Great Ideas for Ensuite Bathroom Design NZ

En-suites are all the rage at the moment as they make life a whole lot easier, especially in the mornings! When it comes to design however, our clients are usually overwhelmed by the number of options out there. 

We have put together a list of ideas to help you design the en-suite of your dreams. 

1.Modernise with the use of mosaics

First in the list of tips is actually our favourite one. Make use of mosaics in en-suite bathroom design NZ. Not only does it injects a certain vibrant feel, but it also adds an exotic personality to the bathroom. If you want a nice extra touch, make sure to introduce some decorative lettering into your space and personalize the look even more.

The use of Mosaic on walls and floors changes the look of the bathroom completely giving it an exotic Moorish feel

2.Play with the colour pallet

A bathroom suite can be positioned center-stage if you decide to restrict your colour scheme. The goal here is to reflect the chrome details of a basin or the silver paint finish on a roll-top bath – and choose your elements wisely. Make sure to add more contrasting colors that highlight the originality of your white ceramics or other items.

3.Introduce a theme

A theme can work well for your en-suite. In fact, it is one of the best ways to add personality for example an absolutely white bathroom. Another example is a nautical feel as one of the easiest themes to implement – all thanks to the choice of (blue and marine-like) accessories available. To begin, just decide on an accent color and just build up the accessories as you go.

4.Recreate your favourite hotel bathroom scheme

One of the best ways to make most of the en-suite bathroom is to find the best ideas from hotels; mastering this design – and re-creating them with your own boudoir hotel-inspired scheme. As you will notice, hotels use strong and textured tiles as well as reflective surfaces in order to build glamour and glitz around a modern bathroom suite.

5.Patterns are your friend

Last but not the least in our list of en-suite bathroom designs are patterns. As you probably know, this has become a new modern trend which is embraced by many minimalist-inspired bathrooms as well as functional spaces all around the world. If you want to use patterns in your bathroom suite, make sure to start with one wall and see how much you actually need.

 Are you ready to transform them to reality and give your bathroom a facelift?

Alma Uka – Full House Renovation for a Rental Property




Transcription


“Main reason why I wanted to renovate it was because the property looked a little bit worn out and I needed to do a little bit of a change of plan so I create a little bit of more space I had three things that I was really worried about it was of course budget I wanted to stay within the budget, the quality of workmanship and the timing because obviously this is intended to be rented out again.

I didn’t have really much idea how long these projects run, the companies for example that I spoke with before, before I got in contact with Superior Renovations they were talking about two months you know, ten weeks and so which with and then the start time they wouldn’t some of the companies weren’t happy to start straight away for example they would be very busy with other projects which with Superior Renovations, Kevin said oh we can start next week.

Once I got in touch with Superior Renovations, I had a little bit of a plan but I needed someone to put it together for me so I got in contact with Jimmy It just we sort of like that energy he was very approachable he was listening, I saw that he’s very organized as well every suggestion with the idea that I had he would also write it straight away and it just felt easy communicating and easy working with Jimmy.

He made it look so easy for me, really the process as well was so easy I thought it’s going to be such a time consuming and stressful process but it actually it wasn’t at all Jimmy took me in the office and he set me down with Kevin and he sat me down with designers and we went through all the process and through all that they made few designs for me and let me choose what I want and even I made some minor changes to the designs which they made it work as well and then they showed me you know the materials the colors so I can touch and feel them you know that was really good.

I picked all the tiles and Jimmy is very patient so I changed my mind about tiles a few times which was very fine with Jimmy he said that’s okay that’s okay we can do it so yeah I chose as I said they took me in their showroom and they said you could just choose whatever you want and it was some suggestions from them about the colors it was very helpful.

They did even more than I expected them to do my ceiling was really ruined so I wanted a brand new ceiling there were companies would say we can just paint it if you want to save money but with Superior Renovations they said nope we have to change the ceiling but that’s within the budget of course and then they put after they change the ceiling they put insulation as well which I didn’t expect them to do really.

I absolutely would choose Superior Renovations definitely, I like the whole Process it was so easy working with the whole team really Yeah definitely, I’ve already spoken to some of my friends who are intending to do the renovation that I’m absolutely amazed with the results that have you know that I’ve got with my property, with quality of workmanship with professionalism that they handled every single detail, it was absolutely fantastic I feel like I want to live here, even my son whose, you know maybe he will move in here because he really likes now that the place it really looks brand-new maybe tenant it for a little while if he doesn’t move in here and then we’ll see from then on I don’t know.”

What should you be paying your builder?

These days keeping up with the interior and exterior design trends is way more challenging than ever before. Trends are always changing and what was ‘in’ today could easily be considered dated tomorrow. Cost is another factor that concerns people as they are unsure how much they should be how much they should be paying their builders. 

There is no price that is carved in stone when it comes to home renovations. However, there are three important factors that you need to consider. 

1.The actual value of your renovations

Ask yourself, 

‘How much value will my renovation bring – and what will it add to my home?’

Ideally, every dollar that you  spend on your house renovation should give you a solid return on your investment. While some improvements have a higher rate of return, others have a short one. For example, if you hire renovation builders in Auckland for a room addition, the value of a project like that will be big.

Kitchen and bathroom renovations are also great in terms of value – and can increase the value of your home, paying back around $1.50 for every $1 spent. A swimming pool, on the other hand, is generally a big investment and something that is difficult to maintain and might not yield a great return.

2.Are you renovating your home for profit – or for your comfort?

Some people are hire renovation builders to renovate their homes so they can get the best price when selling them. Others want their renovation to pay off in terms of comfort.

The idea here is to see the actual purpose of renovating before calling a Auckland renovation builder. For example you might want to erect a wall and split your living room to add another room which will be great if you are renting out the property (another room means a higher rent!). However this will definitely not be great in terms of comfort if you plan to continue living in the house. 

3.Where will your money come from?

How are you financing your home renovation?

If you are using your savings to pay the renovation builders in Auckland, you should avoid the trap of thinking that your project will ‘squeeze itself’ to fit your budget. As you probably see it on TV, renovation projects come with a lot of unplanned renovation costs which is why you should plan your budget ahead and know how much the work will cost.

On average, New Zealanders spend from $15,000 to $50,000 for typical home renovations – still depending on the type of renovation and the amount of work needed. So, it is always wise to estimate the costs and work out how much value your renovation will add – whether to yourself or your pocket.

We hope that this article helped you determine how much to pay your renovation builders in Auckland!

5 Tiny Yet Beautiful Guest Bathroom Ideas

Make Your Guest Bathroom Truly Comfortable

The guest bathroom should be so nice that those of your household prefer it, but avoid using it in order to maintain its excellence. It’s like the living room, where the lady of your home has situated all the fine china behind a transparent wooden cabinet adorned with floral arrangements and family photos.

But getting your guest bathroom “up to muster”, as it were, can be costly if you’re pulling out all the stops. Bathroom Renovations  Auckland wide can easily cost you upto $30,000. The thing is, it doesn’t need to be. You don’t have to effect a total remodel. Here are some ideas for bathroom remodeling on a budget. You can use these, and the five featured below, to help you round out your strategy in terms of designing your guest bathroom.

Doing up your walls with decorate murals and paintings can be a great way to add a new life to your bathroom

1.Artwork On The Walls/Murals

This is a simple beatification technique: put some pretty pictures on the walls. You can choose anything. You might have your bathroom totally agree with the theme in the rest of your home, or you could have it be entirely separate—its own “animal”, as it were. Natural landscapes framed on the walls can really spice up a space.

 

Something else you can do involves actually making the walls in your guest bathroom an art project. How handy are you with a paintbrush? Could you make a piece of art on the walls? Or could you incorporate a fractal, geometric design? There are a lot of options worth pursuing here, and they can all be done with a fair amount of affordability.

2.Luxurious Hand Soap With Exotic Aromas

Hand soap with a fragrance is simple, and has a big impact. The most simple things are often the most impacting. You can avoid the majority of medical conditions and fully flourish through proper diet and exercise. This is simple, yet effective. So is washing your hands regularly. Accordingly, good soap and reliable water from an aesthetically-designed faucet can make your guest bathroom sing, and won’t cost you much.

3.Aesthetically Excellent Vanity Cabinets

Vanity cabinets don’t have to be expensive, and they can really make a room feel classy. There are all kinds of options to choose from out there which fit any budget. One excellent resource for bathroom vanity cabinets is Cabinet City; they offer modern and traditional styles in a variety of designs in the States. Auckland also has a myriad of options for vanity cabinets. A few of them are Kohler, Athena and FRECO. 

4.Aromatic Candles

There are smells to consider when it comes to the restroom. If you want your guests to be at their ease, you’re going to need to take that into advisement. Aromatic candles can make things easier on everybody. When you know you’ve got guests coming over, just light them up. Many are designed such that they’ll burn out safely if you forget—do try to keep from forgetting them, though.

guest-blogger-picture-2, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland

5.Reading Material

This may sound cliché, but you can put some stylish books sourced from a second-hand store in your restroom. Look for those that are large, professionally printed, and include full-page color pictures. Comic strip collections can be ideal here. So can nature books which show foreign locales.

Avoid novels and the like; these aren’t as classy, and the implication of their presence isn’t all that polite to consider. Joke books can also be good, depending on the theme of your guest bathroom décor.

 

Make Your Guest Bathroom An Oasis

Using your imagination to design a restroom for your guests that is aesthetically pleasing can help you see the results you seek without impacting your budget. Using a restroom that isn’t your preferred one can be something that makes anybody uncomfortable. If you’ve got a nice guest restroom, this goes a long way to giving those who visit your home the most comfort possible

1. Cracks will cost you thousands in repairs

Also, it is safe to say that a wallpaper is after all a long-term investment and you must consider how it will look after three, five and ten years from now.

3. DIY will save you money

At the end of the day, it’s always better to know and admit your (DIY) limits.

4. White bathroom walls will help you sell

Planning a sale of your home usually starts with a budget for bathroom renovations in North Shore. If you decide to paint your bathroom walls white (in order to save money), you should know that nowadays, painting a bathroom white may make it dull and boring.

Cheap Bathroom Renovation: 5 Ways to Save On Your Next Project

Let’s face it – the cost of renovating a bathroom is increasing everyday. Even if you are looking for a cheap bathroom renovation, there are many quick-fixes that cost money and are usually more expensive than you think.

Below, we have listied the best ways to save money when renovating your bathroom.

1.Create and stick to a specific budget

A cheap bathroom renovation starts with a specified budget. In other words, you have to know what a “budget bathroom renovation” means in terms of budget – and know how much of your total income or savings is alloted for the purchase.

The goal here is to start a dollar amount that you are able to stick with before making design choices for your bathroom. Then, you can price your fixtures and materials and start grasping on what will work and what won’t (regarding your budget).

2.Pay in cash or debit

Many Aucklanders are used to paying with credit cards nowadays. However, as simple as it is, paying for your project with money that you already have will help you save a significant amount of money that you would otherwise pay in interest (in case you take out a loan).

On top of this, paying in cash or using the money you already have in your account will help you better estimate a project and its real value. If it goes over your budget, it might make sense for you to think financially – whether to take out a loan and if it’s truly worth it.

3.Be patient

They say that patience is a virtue and when it comes to cheap bathroom design, this is absolutely true. Time can be your friend when planning a bathroom renovation in Auckland. If you rush things, you will most likely regret some of the choices you make.

This is why ideally, you should start with one or two elements or fixtures in your bathroom and finish them before moving to the rest of it. It is up to you to prioritise what will come first and what comes in the second line of renovations.

4.DIY (Do It Yourself)

One of the best ways to save money during a home renovation is to do things yourself. Even though you might think “I am not much of a handy/renovation type of person”, you would be surprised to learn how simple some fixes can be during your bathroom redesign.

You can use YouTube and learn new skills and take your time to do it right. And if you don’t have the tools, you can always rent them from a local hardware store and save extra cash on your cheap bathroom renovation. However these ‘easy fixes’ should be limited to things like door handles aas you should not be trying to install a bath tub or carry out any sort of large renovations. 

SRR_9346, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland5.Re-use your existing materials

Last but not the least is a tactic that many Aucklanders use when trying to stick to a budget. We are talking about reusing your existing bathroom materials – or re-purposing them in your home.

For example, your primary bathroom’s cabinetry can easily fit your second bathroom – which makes an easy decision to change the style or replace the doors but leave the cabinet body in place. You can even buy materials and fixtures from salvage yards.

A Final Word

In the end, it is safe to say that a cheap bathroom renovation in New Zealand starts with your budget, needs and desire to do things yourself. The process can be a lot of fun and will definitely add much more character to your bathroom.

Good luck!
