How Much Does It Cost To Renovate A Bathroom NZ – 2024 (updated)

This article has been updated with additional content and project portfolios to reflect the bathroom renovation cost trends in 2024. 

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 2024 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 3-4 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.

1.How Much Does It Cost to Renovate a Bathroom in Auckland?

Whether you have lived in the same house for several years or just purchased an older home you may be facing the need to renovate that old bathroom. As most Aucklanders know, renovating a bathroom can be one of the most expensive renovations that can be undertaken. Hence it is only natural that one of the first questions people have when considering renovating their bathroom is What is the average cost of a new bathroom renovation?

However, that is also one of the most difficult questions to answer since renovating a bathroom means different things to different people.

For example, a major bathroom renovation can involve changing the layout of bathroom, purchasing new bathroom appliances, purchasing fixtures, changing flooring, new paint, changing plumbing and electrical work may mean an average cost between $18,000 and $22,000 for a mid-range bathroom (this seems to be the most popular choice)

On the other hand if you are only planning on a new coat of paint and making few other small changes then the average cost of a new bathroom renovation could only run a couple of thousand of dollars.

However, since most bathroom renovations falls somewhere in between the two extremes the average cost of a new bathroom renovation will fall somewhere between these two extremes.

How to Figure Out Your Average Cost of a New Bathroom Renovation

Understanding the average cost of a new bathroom renovation can be tricky since it varies significantly depending on the scope of the project and specific circumstances. However, at Superior Renovations, we have some valuable tips to help you estimate the cost of your bathroom renovation effectively.

First, determine the purpose of your bathroom renovation. Are you looking to create more space, or do you want to modernize your bathroom to match the rest of your home’s décor? Clarifying your primary goal will help you define the necessary steps and elements required to achieve it. For instance, if your aim is to increase space, you might need to focus on reconfiguring the layout, while modernizing might involve updating fixtures and finishes.

Once you have a clear purpose, make a comprehensive list of everything that needs to be remodeled. This list should include fixtures such as sinks, toilets, and bathtubs; lighting options; wall and ceiling paint; tiles for floors and walls; cabinetry; and flooring materials. Don’t forget to consider smaller details like mirrors, towel racks, and storage solutions, as these can also impact the overall cost.

Next, research the costs of these items. Visit home improvement stores, check online marketplaces, and compare prices to get an idea of what you will need to spend on materials. Websites like Bunnings, Mitre 10, and Trade Me can provide a range of options and price points. Additionally, look for sales or clearance items to save on high-quality materials.

Another crucial aspect to consider is the cost of hiring professionals for the renovation. Depending on your project’s complexity, you might need to hire tradespeople such as plumbers, electricians, tilers, and painters. To get a realistic estimate, seek quotes from multiple contractors and check reviews or references to ensure they provide quality work. Websites like Builderscrack and NoCowboys can help you find reputable tradespeople in your area.

To further refine your cost estimate, consider potential additional expenses. These might include the cost of permits if structural changes are required, disposal fees for old materials, and unexpected repairs that might arise during the renovation process. Adding a contingency fund of around 10-15% of your total budget can help cover these unforeseen costs.

Lastly, evaluate whether you can handle any part of the renovation yourself to save on labor costs. Simple tasks like demolition, painting, or installing accessories can be managed by DIY enthusiasts, reducing the amount you need to spend on professional services.

 

Keep in mind that you can do the bigger projects of your bathroom renovation first and then add in some of the smaller details to help you spread out the cost of that renovation job.

 

2. 7 Factors that contribute to the Cost of a bathroom Renovation in NZ.

  1. Size of the bathroom: The size of the bathroom is a key factor that affects the cost of a renovation. Larger bathrooms require more materials and labour, which can drive up the cost. A standard-sized bathroom in NZ is usually around 8-12 square metres. If your bathroom is larger than this, you can expect to pay more for the renovation. However, if your bathroom is smaller, it may be more affordable to renovate.
  2. Quality of materials: The quality of materials used for the renovation can also have a significant impact on the overall cost. Higher-quality materials such as natural stone, premium tiles, and fixtures made of premium materials like brass and stainless steel will be more expensive. Lower-quality materials like vinyl, laminate, or ceramic tiles will be more affordable. However, it’s important to note that using lower-quality materials may not last as long and may require more maintenance and repair over time.
  3. Complexity of the design: The complexity of the design of the bathroom is another factor that can affect the cost of the renovation. If you have a unique design in mind or want to incorporate custom features, this will likely require more labour and materials, which can increase the cost of the project. For example, adding a new shower or bath, changing the layout of the bathroom, or installing custom cabinetry can all increase the complexity of the design and add to the cost.
  4. Plumbing and electrical work: If your bathroom renovation involves changing the plumbing or electrical systems, this can add to the cost of the project. This is because licensed professionals will need to be hired to ensure that the work is done safely and up to code. Plumbing work may include installing new pipes or moving existing ones, while electrical work may include installing new lighting or adding outlets.
  5. Labour costs: Labour costs are a significant component of the cost of a bathroom renovation. The cost of labour can vary depending on the level of experience and expertise of the contractors or tradespeople involved in the project. It’s important to choose a reputable and experienced renovation company to ensure that the work is done to a high standard and within budget.
  6. Permits and fees: Depending on the scope of the renovation, permits and fees may be required from the local council. These costs should be factored into the overall renovation budget. The cost of permits and fees can vary depending on the location of the property and the scope of the renovation.
  7. Location: The location of the property can also impact the cost of the renovation. Renovations in Auckland may be more expensive than other parts of New Zealand due to higher labour and material costs. Additionally, if the bathroom is in an apartment or multi-level building, there may be additional costs associated with access to the site, such as elevator or stair fees.

In summary, the cost to renovate a bathroom in NZ can vary based on several factors, including the size of the bathroom, quality of materials used, complexity of the design, plumbing and electrical work involved, labour costs, permits and fees, and location. By considering these factors and working with a reputable and experienced renovation company, you can ensure that your bathroom renovation is completed to a high standard and within budget.

3.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.

Bathroom renovation for a young family

Renovating a bathroom in NZ for families with young children requires careful consideration of several important factors to create a space that is both safe and functional. Here are some specific features that can make a bathroom more suitable for families with young children:

  • Durable and easy-to-clean surfaces: Choosing durable and easy-to-clean surfaces for walls, floors, and fixtures is essential when renovating a bathroom. For example, textured tiles or non-slip mats are a good choice for flooring to prevent slips and falls, and tiles are easy to clean and maintain.
  • Adequate storage: Families with young children require a lot of storage space for toiletries, bath toys, and other items. Incorporating storage solutions like built-in shelving, cabinets, or baskets will keep the bathroom organized and clutter-free.
  • Child-friendly fixtures: Installing child-friendly fixtures can make a big difference in the safety and convenience of the bathroom for young children. Soft-close toilet seats can prevent accidental slamming, while a handheld showerhead can make it easier to rinse children off.
  • Slip-resistant flooring: Bathroom floors can become slippery when wet, which can be especially dangerous for young children. Choose slip-resistant flooring options like textured tiles or non-slip mats to help prevent slips and falls.
  • Safety features: Safety features like grab bars or non-slip mats in the tub or shower can provide additional support for children who are learning to bathe independently. Additionally, child locks on cabinets or drawers can keep hazardous items like cleaning supplies out of reach.

When planning a bathroom renovation for a family with young children, it’s important to work with an experienced renovation company in NZ to ensure that the renovation meets the family’s needs and is done to a high standard. With the right design and features, a renovated bathroom can be a safe and functional space for the entire family to enjoy.

Examples of bathroom renovations for families with Young children – How much does this type of a bathroom renovation Cost?

This rustic bathroom renovation in Westmere features a large custom built wet area, double sink custom vanity and matte anti-slip tiles. This large wet area is perfect for families with young children because of the ample space available to bathe kids.

The cost to renovate the bathroom below would be on a slightly higher side because of the choice of fittings. The tiles used in the feature wall of the wet area from Tile Depot are of the size 6.5 x 20 which is a fairly small size. This means that it is a lot more labour intensive to install as opposed to tiles in a larger format as there is less grouting to do. These Artisan Moss green tiles come in various shades of green with a glossy texture are also from Tile Depot’s more premium range in tiles.

The custom built vanity and benchtop also contributes to higher cost of the bathroom.

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.Tips for Reducing the Average Cost of A New Bathroom Renovation

You also need to keep in mind that the average cost of A new bathroom renovation is just an estimate.  However, there are some ways to reduces the costs of your bathroom renovation including:

  • Your Bathroom Cabinets- Instead of replacing those bathroom cabinets consider restraining them or painting them in a new modern color. You can also refinish your bathtub and sink and give it a new bright look.
  • Go for New Faucets and Handles Instead of All New Bathroom Appliances- Many times simply changing your sink and bath tub handles and faucets is enough to give your bathroom a more modern look.
  • Go Lighter- You don’t have to actually enlarge your bathroom to make it look spacious. In fact painting your bathroom in a lighter yellow or beige can make it look spacious without breaking down a wall.

5.Average Toilet Renovation Cost

6.How much does it cost to renovate a bathroom – NZ average

Pricing guide for 2024 (updated)

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.

 

Type of Bathroom Renovation Average Bathroom Renovation Cost
Standard Bathroom Minor Alterations (Not Demolishing Everything)

If you’d like to keep the cost of your bathroom renovation on the low side or at least lower than the average cost, you have options. Instead of completely rearranging the bathroom, it’s less expensive to leave the sink, bathtub, shower and toilet where they are. Simply swap the older models for newer, updated versions.

$8,000 – $13,000 (this would be applicable as a DIY job or if you just get a plumber to replace some fixtures. This is not applicable when using a renovation company). 
Mid Range Bathroom Renovation

Renovating a bathroom has several benefits for the homeowner, aside from making the room look better and improving its function. Adding another sink to a master bathroom, improving the lighting and making the shower function better are a few examples of bathroom updates that pay off in the long run. This type of bathroom renovation is done usually with a mix of mid-range fixtures, and few premium fixtures.

$26,000 – $32,000 (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management) 
Custom Bathroom Renovation (high-end)

If you have a bit more to spend, you can upgrade your renovation in a few ways. One option is to get higher-quality, custom countertops, such as quartz or custom-cut granite. Also, you may want to invest in higher-quality fixtures, such as faucets made of bronze or copper and solid wood, glazed cabinets.

$34,000 – $40,000 + (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management)

9. Small Bathroom Renovation Cost (NZ)

Renovating a bathroom is a significant undertaking for any homeowner, often involving a complex blend of trades and considerations. In New Zealand, where space is sometimes at a premium, the challenges of renovating smaller bathrooms can be particularly pronounced. Contrary to popular belief, however, the size of the bathroom doesn’t necessarily correlate directly with the renovation cost. Let’s delve into the intricacies of small bathroom renovations in New Zealand and explore why the size might not be the primary determinant of expenses.

One common misconception among homeowners is that the size of their bathroom will significantly impact the renovation cost. However, the reality is that while larger bathrooms may require more materials such as tiles and waterproofing membranes, the fundamental aspects of the renovation process remain consistent regardless of size. The need for plumbing, demolition, electrical work, painting, installation, and other specialized trades persists whether you’re renovating a compact powder room or a spacious ensuite.

Bathroom renovations involve a multitude of trades, each contributing their expertise to different facets of the project. From plumbing to tiling, electrical work to painting, and everything in between, the coordination of these specialized trades is essential for a successful renovation. In smaller bathrooms, the same array of trades is required, albeit within a more confined space. This means that the costs associated with engaging these professionals remain relatively consistent, regardless of the bathroom’s size.

While the renovation process itself may not vary significantly based on size, the choice and placement of fixtures and fittings can influence the overall cost. In smaller bathrooms, there is less space available for larger showers, vanities, or freestanding baths. Consequently, homeowners may opt for more compact or space-saving alternatives, which could potentially reduce the cost of these products compared to their larger counterparts. However, it’s essential to balance cost considerations with functionality and aesthetic preferences to ensure the final result meets your needs and desires.

It’s crucial to distinguish between a full bathroom renovation and minor upgrades or maintenance. While replacing a few components or addressing specific issues may incur lower costs, a comprehensive renovation involves overhauling the entire space. This includes addressing structural issues, updating plumbing and electrical systems, replacing fixtures, and often reconfiguring the layout to optimize space utilization and functionality. As such, the costs associated with a full renovation are more substantial but offer the opportunity for a transformative and long-lasting upgrade to your home.

The cost of renovating a small bathroom in New Zealand is not solely determined by its size. While smaller bathrooms may require less material for certain aspects such as tiling, the overall cost is influenced by factors such as the complexity of the renovation, the involvement of specialized trades, and the selection of fixtures and fittings. By understanding these nuances and carefully planning your renovation project, you can achieve a stylish and functional bathroom that enhances your home’s value and your quality of life.

 

10. How Much To Tile A Bathroom (NZ)

If you’re looking to tile your bathroom in New Zealand, you’re probably wondering about the cost. Tiling can really transform the look of your bathroom, but it’s important to know what you’re getting into financially. Let’s break it down.

Cost to Tile a Bathroom: Per Square Metre Breakdown

The cost to tile a bathroom can vary depending on the size of the tiles you choose and the amount of tiling and grout work required. Here’s a handy table to give you an idea:

Tile Size Cost per Square Metre Comments
Small (10×10 cm) $60 – $100 More grout work, higher labour cost
Medium (30×30 cm) $50 – $90 Standard choice, balanced cost
Large (60×60 cm) $70 – $120 Less grout work, but can be trickier to install

Factors Affecting the Cost to Tile a Bathroom

  1. Size of the Tiles: Smaller tiles generally mean more grout lines and more work for the installer, which can increase the cost.
  2. Amount of Tiling: Full wall and floor tiling will cost more than just tiling the shower area.
  3. Pattern and Complexity: Intricate patterns and layouts can also bump up the price because they take longer to install.

Added Costs for Waterproofing

Waterproofing is a crucial step when tiling a bathroom, especially in areas that get a lot of moisture, like the shower. Skipping this can lead to serious issues down the line, such as mold and water damage.

Waterproofing Costs

Here’s what you can expect to pay for waterproofing your bathroom in New Zealand:

Area Cost Range Comments
Shower area $300 – $500 Essential for preventing leaks and water damage
Entire bathroom (walls and floors) $600 – $1,200 Recommended for complete protection

Total Cost Estimate

So, how much will it all add up to? Let’s say you have a medium-sized bathroom of 10 square metres. If you choose medium-sized tiles and decide to waterproof the entire bathroom, here’s a rough estimate:

  • Tiling: 10 sqm x $70 (average cost for medium tiles) = $700
  • Waterproofing: Around $1,000 for the whole bathroom

Total estimated cost: $1,700

Remember, these are just ballpark figures. The actual cost to tile a bathroom in New Zealand can vary based on the specific materials you choose and the complexity of the job. Always get a few quotes from local tilers to get a precise estimate.

 

11. Can You Renovate Your Bathroom Cheaply?

First up, if you’re into DIY, you’re already saving big. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Plan and Budget: Begin with a solid plan. Identify what you want to change – maybe it’s the tiles, fixtures, or a new vanity. Use trusted budgeting tools from Consumer NZ to keep your costs in check.
  2. Keep the Plumbing As-Is: This is essential. Moving plumbing is a major cost driver. Stick to the existing positions of your sink, toilet, and shower.
  3. Paint and Refresh: A fresh coat of paint can work wonders. Opt for moisture-resistant paint recommended by Resene, a well-known New Zealand paint company. You can also repaint tiles with special tile paint for a fresh look without replacing them.
  4. Update Fixtures: Replace old taps, showerheads, and handles. This simple upgrade can make a huge difference and is generally easy to do on your own.
  5. Re-Grout and Seal: Refresh your tiles by re-grouting and sealing. It’s a bit of elbow grease, but it yields a clean, new appearance.

Sourcing Materials and Fittings

Here’s where to find your materials and fittings:

  • Online Marketplaces: Websites like Trade Me and Facebook Marketplace are excellent for finding second-hand or discounted bathroom fittings and fixtures.
  • DIY Stores: Bunnings and Mitre 10 often have sales or clearance items that are perfect for a budget-friendly renovation.
  • Salvage Yards: Don’t overlook architectural salvage yards, such as those listed on Builderscrack. They offer unique and affordable pieces.

Hiring Individual Trades

If DIY isn’t your thing, or for tasks requiring a professional touch, hiring individual tradespeople can be more cost-effective than a full-service contractor. Here’s how to manage it:

  1. Find Tradespeople: Use local community groups on Facebook, or websites like Builderscrack or NoCowboys to find reputable plumbers, electricians, and tilers. Always get multiple quotes to ensure fair pricing.
  2. Schedule and Manage: Act as your own project manager. Coordinate the tradespeople yourself to ensure timely and orderly work.
  3. Do Some Prep Work: Handle simple tasks yourself, like demolition or surface prep, to save on labor costs.

Cost-Saving Tips

  • Reuse and Upcycle: If your existing vanity or fixtures are still in decent shape, consider painting or refinishing them instead of buying new ones.
  • Affordable Alternatives: Look for laminate or composite countertops that mimic the appearance of pricier materials without the high cost.
  • Simple Updates: Sometimes, just updating the mirror or adding new accessories can dramatically improve your bathroom’s look.

Example Scenario

Imagine you want to refresh your bathroom. You decide to keep the layout the same to avoid plumbing costs. You find a nearly-new vanity on Trade Me for half the price of a new one. You paint the walls yourself with moisture-resistant paint from Resene. You hire a local tiler you found on Builderscrack to re-tile the shower area, but you remove the old tiles yourself to reduce labor costs. Finally, you replace the old taps and showerhead with new ones you found on sale at Mitre 10.

By blending DIY efforts with strategic hiring and sourcing materials wisely from trusted sources, you’ve managed a cheap bathroom renovation that looks great and didn’t cost a fortune.

    Bathroom Renovation Cost Calculator Tool (NZ)

    Bathroom renovations are an important part of any household makeover and there are a lot of things to consider, vinyl vs tiles, new cabinetry and more. Bathroom renovations have great potential to increase the value of your home for resale, or make it more functional for your family.


    Click here to be taken straight to the bathroom renovation cost calculator


    Here are some factors that can impact the cost of renovating a bathroom:

    1. Size of the bathroom: The larger the bathroom, the more materials and labor will be required, which can drive up the cost of the renovation.
    2. Type of renovation: A complete bathroom remodel, which involves moving fixtures and updating plumbing and electrical systems, will typically cost more than a simple cosmetic update.
    3. Materials used: The cost of materials, such as tiles, fixtures, and cabinets, can vary widely depending on the quality and style selected.
    4. Labor costs: Labor costs can vary depending on the scope of the renovation, the experience and expertise of the contractor, and the location of the project.
    5. Consent fees: Depending on where you live, you may need to obtain permits for certain types of bathroom renovations. These fees can add to the overall cost of the project.
    6. Plumbing and electrical work: If your bathroom renovation involves moving fixtures or updating plumbing and electrical systems, these costs can add up quickly.
    7. Accessibility needs: If you require an accessible bathroom with features like grab bars, a walk-in shower, or a raised toilet, these modifications can add to the overall cost of the renovation.
    8. Design choices: Certain design choices, such as high-end finishes or custom-built cabinetry, can also impact the cost of the renovation.

    By considering these factors and planning carefully, you can create a realistic budget for your bathroom renovation and avoid unexpected costs along the way.  When renovating a bathroom, there are certain factors that can be difficult to anticipate and can impact the overall cost of the project. Here are a few things to consider:

    1. Hidden damage: Once you start tearing apart walls and floors, you may uncover hidden damage, such as water damage or mold. This can require additional work and materials to fix, which can increase the cost of the renovation.
    2. Unforeseen complications: Sometimes, unexpected complications can arise during the renovation process, such as unexpected plumbing or electrical issues. These complications can require additional work and materials to address, which can drive up the cost of the project.
    3. Delays: Renovations can be impacted by unforeseen delays, such as backordered materials or unexpected construction challenges. These delays can extend the timeline of the project and add to the overall cost.
    4. Changes in design: If you make changes to the design or scope of the project midway through the renovation, this can add to the overall cost of the project.
    5. Permit or inspection fees: As mentioned previously, building permits may be required for certain types of bathroom renovations, and inspection fees may be charged to ensure that the work meets building standards. These fees can add to the overall cost of the project.

    To factor these variables into your costings, it is important to set aside a contingency fund in your budget. This can help cover unexpected costs and ensure that you are prepared for any unforeseen challenges that may arise during the renovation process. Additionally, it is important to work with a reputable contractor who can help identify potential challenges and develop a realistic budget and timeline for the project.

    How much does it cost to renovate a bathroom – NZ average

    Pricing guide

    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.

     

    Type of Bathroom Renovation Average Bathroom Renovation Cost
    Standard Bathroom Minor Alterations (Not Demolishing Everything)

    If you’d like to keep the cost of your bathroom renovation on the low side or at least lower than the average cost, you have options. Instead of completely rearranging the bathroom, it’s less expensive to leave the sink, bathtub, shower and toilet where they are. Simply swap the older models for newer, updated versions.

    $8,000 – $13,000 (this would be applicable as a DIY job or if you just get a plumber to replace some fixtures. This is not applicable when using a renovation company). 
    Mid Range Bathroom Renovation

    Renovating a bathroom has several benefits for the homeowner, aside from making the room look better and improving its function. Adding another sink to a master bathroom, improving the lighting and making the shower function better are a few examples of bathroom updates that pay off in the long run. This type of bathroom renovation is done usually with a mix of mid-range fixtures, and few premium fixtures.

    $26,000 – $32,000 (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management) 
    Custom Bathroom Renovation (high-end)

    If you have a bit more to spend, you can upgrade your renovation in a few ways. One option is to get higher-quality, custom countertops, such as quartz or custom-cut granite. Also, you may want to invest in higher-quality fixtures, such as faucets made of bronze or copper and solid wood, glazed cabinets.

    $34,000 – $40,000 + (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management)

        Top 15 bathroom design trends for 2023


        Trend #1 Black making a statement

        In the recent years we have seen that Grey has been a more popular choice instead of Black. Often people choose grey as a dominant colour for accents and flooring. Black however has seen a rise in popularity with more people wanting to make a bolder statement within their bathroom design. Grey will however still remain popular but expect to see more darker tones of grey or black for future bathroom designs.

        Black can be integrated in many forms within a bathroom. If you have a smaller bathroom then you can use black for your light fixtures, mirror and tapware with matte finishes. If you have a neutral toned bathroom then adding black tapware and light fixtures will create a dramatic effect in your bathroom. If you have a larger bathroom then you can also look at adding black fixtures like a bathtub or vanity. Black is however not a popular choice for tiles. Large grey tiled floors will continue to see an upward trend in the coming years.

        Trend #2 Brass and Gold 

        Brass and gold have always been associated with vintage bathroom designs. Gold accents work great with vintage designs, but they can also be incorporated into contemporary and modern designs. Gold and brass are no longer a design of the past. The gold and brass hues of today will add a lovely warmth to any bathroom. They add a sense of character and luxury to your bathroom space.

        The past years have seen sleek, polished, and modern shiny fixtures. Homeowners are moving away from this trend as it does not add any warmth to the bathroom. Shiny sleek metal fixtures lack character and make your bathroom look cold.

        Instead the growing trend has been to incorporate brass and cold hues in matte finishing for taps, sinks and lighting.

        Trend #3 Technology within your bathroom design

        Technology is integrated everywhere within our lives. So why should bathrooms remain behind? The whole point of technology is to make our standard of living better. We have seen smart toilets and automatic taps in the past owing to the growing trend in Japan. Smart toilets, automatic taps and deodorisers have become a norm in hotels and airports. More and more homeowners are integrating smart toilets and automatic taps into their bathroom design.

        2021 will see technology integrated throughout the bathroom and not just toilets or automatic taps. We will be seeing a rise is automatic showers and Bluetooth systems. With automatic showers, you will be able to make sure that the water is already hot by the time you get home. With a blue tooth system you can now listen to music when having a shower. You can also now install a voice activated system where you can alter light and water settings with just speaking out loud.

        Modern bathrooms are becoming more of a place of relaxation and technology is becoming an integral part of it.

         


        Trend #4 Tile Patterns and shapes in a bathroom design

        White square tiles are a thing of the past. If you are renovating your bathroom then you will hardly choose a white tile owing to the far superior options available in tiles today. Tiles now come in various hues, designs, patterns and textures. They can mimic any material or style owing to the advancement in technology.

        You can now cut tiles in various shapes and sizes which adds to the number of things to choose from. 2021 bathrooms will feature bright tiles in various shapes which will be used as accent and as features.

        Shower walls and backsplashes are the two most common areas where you will see bright and textured tiles. They will not be limited to floors.

        Trend #5 Industrial styled sinks, lighting and vanities

        Industrial style homes were first inspired by the apartments of New York. Industrial style is also sometimes interchangeably used as ‘New York’ style apartments. It is however not to everyone’s taste. Most people do not use an industrial style throughout their home. Instead certain elements of the industrial style is integrated into their renovation design.

        Expect to see a growing trend of industrial elements incorporated into bathroom designs in NZ. One of the most popular industrial elements have been sinks, light fixtures and taps. If you love the style then you can even think of integrating an industrial vanity. These elements can easily be integrated into any bathroom style by choosing wooden and matte black industrial fixtures. This trend especially works well in apartments and Urban areas such as Auckland.

        Trend #6 Wooden accents are back

        People have always loved wooden elements in their home. Wooden accents exude warmth into any room. As mentioned earlier, people are straying away from white and shiny bathrooms. Wooden accents have been on the rise in the last 2 years with most people featuring them as vanities. Wooden accents are popular as they can be incorporated into any time of style. Wooden looking tiles have also become popular recently.

        Trend #7 Adding a pop of colour to your bathroom design

        Like we discussed above, white bathrooms have a very clinical look to them. They do not exude any warmth or add any design element to your bathroom. A growing trend in bathrooms has been to add a pop of colour to otherwise neutral bathrooms. This is easily done by installing bright coloured light fixtures or tapware.

        2021 however will see a rise in colourful backsplashes and accent walls to draw attention to a bathroom. This can either be done by painting one of your walls in a bright shade or simply installing textured and bright tiles as accent walls or feature strips.

        In our interview with Ruth from Tile depot, she talks about how many Aucklanders are using their Casablanca collection to add a pop of colour to their bathrooms. The Casablanca collection comes in warm red, orange, green and many other colours. If you are not quite ready for a bold accent wall then you can still add some colour in your bathroom by installing a strip of bright or textured tiles on an otherwise neutral wall.

        Trend #8 Compact storage spaces

        Since bathroom is a small space, it often starts looking messy and cluttered. Even if you are not a minimalistic person, you should think about keeping your bathroom clutter free to encourage a relaxed environment. Compact and hidden storage solutions are readily available and will make your bathroom appear more open and organised if integrated within your bathroom design.

        It is often easy to forget about storage when renovating a bathroom. People often get carried away with the beautiful fixtures that they can choose from. When renovating a bathroom think about the functionality and your lifestyle. Storage solutions should be one of the major factors that should be taken into consideration during a renovation.

        Trend #9 Pale tones of pink

        Blush has been a popular choice in bathrooms for quite some time. Blush walls matched with matte metallic fixtures can really transform your bathroom into a chic space. In 2021 you can expect to see modern bathrooms in shades of blush paired with rose gold fixtures and tapware. If you are not ready to commit to rose gold or blush for the whole bathroom, it is still a great colour to add as feature walls or accents.

        Trend #10 Advanced Mirrors and sleek lines

        There has been a growing trend for sleeker bathrooms especially in apartments of Urban areas. People want their homes to reflect a kind of urban, modern and sleek look. This theme is carried forward in their bathrooms which are sleeker than before. Such bathrooms usually have technology integrated within the design and mirrors are not far behind.

        Mirrors now have anti fog technology which is especially convenient to do your toilette after your hot shower. They also have smart touch buttons which enable you to switch a light on at the rim of the mirrors. These mirrors have a back light running all around the mirror which can be adjusted in intensity with a touch of your finger. USB charging stations are also increasingly been seen in bathrooms.

        Trend #11 Bigger and comfier

        Our changing lifestyles also means that we have changed how we live within our house. Separate toilets and bathrooms were always preferred even a few decades ago. People now prefer to have ensuites in their homes which means that there is more space to work with. Quite a few of our clients now prefer to demolish the wall between their toilet and bathroom in order to convert them into an ensuite.

        This means that you can now install bigger bathtubs and showers within your bathroom design. Bigger bathtubs means that you relax more comfortably and indeed make your bathroom a place of serenity after a long days work. Open showers have also become increasingly popular compared to older boxed in plastic shower boxes. The growing trend has been to make your bathroom look open and uncluttered. Having open showers or wet areas makes your bathroom look spacious. If you are not yet ready for a wet area in your bathroom then think about installing showers with glass doors that go from the ground till the ceiling.

        Trend #12 Floating bathroom vanities

        As we discussed above, contemporary and bathrooms have seen a growing trend in the past few years. These designs often feature floating vanities and shelves. Floating shelves however are now being integrated in all types of bathroom designs. As technology improves bathroom suppliers are making floating vanities with traditional, transitional and industrial styles as well.

        Floating vanities make the area look less cumbersome and increases storage underneath them.

        Trend #13 Underfloor heating systems and lights

        Adding underfloor heating is not seen as a luxury anymore. The growing trend for bathroom designs has been to make them as comfortable as possible. Hence most recently renovated bathrooms in Auckland now feature underfloor heating which cost about $2500. This might feel like its an expense but the comfort that they offer in winter months is immeasurable.

        Moreover, you can install underfloor heating under any time of flooring that you choose. You can install it under concrete, tile, Vinyl, wood or tile. You no longer must tip toe or wear warm slippers when walking on tiled bathroom floors. You can also install heating lights on the ceiling for cold winters to add more warmth in your bathroom. This will cost you around $600.

        Trend #14 Textures and patterns on walls

        Textured and patterned wall tiles do not have to be synonyms to wallpaper. Wallpapers are a thing of the past as they are hard to maintain. Wallpapers however do have an advantage because they come in various patters and designs which can add considerable character to a bathroom.

        Instead of wallpapers the trend will be to use textured and patterned tiles on the walls to add some drama into a bathroom. Tile depot has a range of Artisan tiles/ patterned tiles that can be used as feature walls for bathrooms.

        Trend #15 Larger tiles

        Contrary to popular belief, large tiles make a small bathroom look larger. This is because with larger tiles you will have lesser grout lines which means lesser ‘breaks’ on the bathroom floors. Ruth from Tile depot explains that 600 by 600 or 600 by 900 tiles are becoming increasingly popular with Auckanders and this trend is seeing an upward demands.

        10 tips for small bathroom ideas for your bathroom design

        Medium to large bathrooms are easier to design because there is a lot of space to include the fixtures you like as well as to create design elements. But not everyone has the luxury of having big bathrooms and often the smaller bathrooms in our homes are neglected.

        This, however, does not have to be the case. Small bathrooms can be as functional and visually appealing. The key to a great small bathroom design is planning and a designer who can help you with integrating design elements for your small bathroom design.

         

        1.     Choose Soft colours or a neutral palette

        A neutral palette for your walls and fixtures will give an illusion of space to your small bathroom. Soft colours like beige, off white, soft pinks and other neutral colours will open your space and will create a calming feel within your small bathroom. Having a soft coloured or neutral palette does not mean that your overall bathroom design will be boring. You can create interest and design elements such as colourful towel tails, matte black tapware, brass finish mixers. and accent tiles for your small bathroom.

         

        2.     Recessed Lighting

        Good lighting will always make any small space appear larger. Natural lighting from the windows works great for small bathrooms but if you do not have good natural lighting then you should make sure that you install plenty of lighting.

        We recommend clients to install recessed lighting if they have a small bathroom. You will already be working with a limited space which means you should avoid installing pendent lighting, chandeliers, or wall mounted lighting fixtures as they will make your small bathroom look closed in.

        Recessed lighting can be completely hidden in your ceiling and give a sleek look to your bathroom.  Recessed lighting also emits a soft glow which will soften the lines of your fixtures and walls.

         

        3.     Add Wall Mirrors or Large mirrors above your basin

        Use large flat mirrors, if possible, above your vanity or along the wall if possible. Adding large mirrors will visually make your bathroom appear larger and it will also reflect light to add to this illusion of space. Avoid bulky cabinets and if a medicine cabinet is an absolute must for you then choose sleeker styles. St Michel’s has several style options for sleek medicine and side cabinets which are a great choice for small bathroom designs.

         

        4.     Wet areas

        Wet areas are perfect for small bathroom designs as they provide a sleek look and open up the space. If you are planning on creating a wet area for your small bathroom, then you need to get the area waterproofed. Once waterproofing is completed, then the walls and floors are tiled which becomes your ‘wet area’. Wet areas that are completely open do have a disadvantage because you must ensure that all your other fixtures like vanity etc are water resistance as well.

        Cleaning can also become an issue because you will have to wipe water splashes from the rest of the bathroom. To combat this issue, many of our clients prefer installing a glass divider between the wet area and the rest of the bathroom. You can either install half a glass divider or a glass door according to your preference.

        5.     L-shaped Tiled showers

        The corner space of bathrooms is often under utilised in most bathrooms. Small bathroom designs need all the creativity they can get with their layouts. This corner L-shaped space can be used to create a custom tiled glass shower.

        See full project specifications for the above bathroom in St Heliers

         

         

        Use the same tiles in the shower as the rest of your bathroom floor to get a continuous look as this will make your small bathroom appear larger. Use a frameless glass door to add to the illusion of space for your small bathroom.

        6.     Pocket door/ Barn Door

        When you have a small bathroom, you need all the space you can get to comfortably accommodate all bathroom fixtures. To maximise space in your bathroom, you can install a pocket door so that the door is not opening into your bathroom.

        We custom built a barn door for this full bathroom renovation as the we did not want the door to swing into the bathroom or the corridor outside. We had limited space in the bathroom and had to accommodate a toilet, shower, bathtub and vanity so we needed all the space available – Vintage bathroom renovation in North Shore

         

        See full bathroom specifications for the above vintage bathroom in North Shore

         

        7.     Use large Tiles for your floors

        Using large floor tiles will make your small bathroom look larger as it will have fewer grout lines. Ruth from Tile depot recommends using 600 by 600 or 900 by 600 tiles on the floors for small bathroom designs. You can further minimise the appearance of grout lines by matching the colour of your grouting with the tiles.

         

        8.     Try a Minimalistic small bathroom design

        If you have a very small bathroom then opt for a minimalistic look for your bathroom design. Stay away from too many patterns or textures and choose fixtures with clean lines. Opt for white for your flooring, and all bathroom fixtures. Do not use a shower curtain if you have a bath and instead install a clear glass. To elevate the overall design for your small bathroom, add plants near your window or plant creepers along your mirrors.

         

        9.     Floating vanities and toilets

        Installing floating vanities and toilets in your bathroom will allow you to achieve an uncluttered look as the space around these fixtures is freed up. In the past floating vanities available were only in the modern style. Now, however you can find gloating vanities in contemporary as well as other styles.

         

        10. Custom built vanities to suit the size of your small bathroom

        Small bathrooms can sometimes have odd angles or might be too narrow. Building custom vanity is not as difficult as it might sound. In fact, vanities are built the same way as your kitchen cabinets and benchtop are built.

        How to create a designer bathroom – Designer bathrooms in NZ

        At Superior Renovations, we have seen a growing demand from our clients to create bathrooms that have a designer element to them. Bathrooms no longer are just a functional space but a space to enjoy and relax. Having a designer bathroom does not necessarily have to equate to expensive.

        “There are so many innovative and beautiful bathroom fixtures available today which are easy to maintain, moderately priced but also exude a sense of luxury. Combine beautiful fixtures with gorgeous handmade looking tiles and you can really make your bathroom look elegant. It is all about choosing fixtures, colours, textures and designs that truly complement each other for a cohesive bathroom design” says Cici our in-house bathroom designer.

        Some of the key questions Cici asks our clients before designing a designer bathroom is as follows:

        • Is there a specific theme that you have in mind for your designer bathroom? Themes could range from eclectic, classic, traditional, vintage cottage, industrial, retro, contemporary or modern.
        • Do you want to create a bathroom which is a mix of elements from different styles?
        • is there a specific colour that you want to incorporate within the bathroom design?
        • Is this going to be your main bathroom or a guest bathroom?
        • Who will be using this bathroom the most? Are the children going to use the bathroom too?
        • How do you feel about textures on materials?
        • Do you like a matte, glossy finishes for your fixtures? Or do you want a combination of both?
        • Is there a particular fixture (like a bathtub or wet area) that is a must in the bathroom design?
        • Does one of the fixtures need to be the star of your bathroom design?
        • Do you want a layered lighting effect or a bathroom with more natural and bright light?
        • Any specific brands that you want to specifically include in your designer bathroom?
        • Do you need a lot of storage in the bathroom?
        • How do you feel about a feature wall?
        • What is your ideal choice for flooring?
        • Any specific tiles that are a must (non-slip etc)?
        • Do you want a fully tiled wall or would you prefer painting them?

         

        “Most of my clients do not know the answer to the all the above questions which is completely fine. The choices out there are plenty and it can quickly get overwhelming. I use these questions as just a starting point, to see what the client roughly wants from the designer bathroom. Most of my clients’ vision for their bathroom design often evolves as we talk more about materials and prospective design.” explains Cici. “It is okay not to know what exactly you want from your bathroom design”.

        In the next section of the blog we will discuss how to create different styles of designer bathrooms in NZ.

        Create a contemporary designer bathroom with Fixtures and Large Matte tiles.

        Fixtures play a key role when creating a designer bathroom in NZ. We mostly work with Reece when renovating bathrooms because of their extensive range in design as well as the quality of their fixtures. Contemporary bathrooms are most popular in Auckland as they are a mix of materials that are popular. Contemporary bathroom designs mostly feature large matte tiles with large free standing bathtubs, wet areas and vanity with a design feature.

        Kado for bathtubs

        Cici often uses the KADO range from Reece when styling contemporary bathrooms. The Kado Range from Reece, is inspired by hotel luxury with an emphasis on indulgence and comfort. This bathtub is called Lussi 500 Vessel basin and has the capacity of 7.6L.

        If you are looking for something slightly more asymmetrical then Cici would recommend the Neue free standing bathtub from Kado. “The curved edge on one side of the bathtub creates interest and is also more comfortable as you can stretch out your legs on the elongated side of the bathtub.

        As seen above, contemporary bathrooms of today have an overall matte finish for all their fixtures and tiles. If you want to add a touch of glossy or shiny finish to your bathroom then we recommend you do them through taps or a feature wall.

        LAUFEN for basins and tapware

        There are many options available today when it comes choosing a contemporary style of basin. There isn’t a particular basin that fits the description of a contemporary style. Some of the more popular contemporary designer bathrooms of today have smart features like integrating eco technology that help to save water and electricity.

         

        We asked Cici why she recommends Laufen to clients and she says “Laufen has created a unique material called SaphirKeramik which they use to make their basins. It is a revolutionary ceramic material which has exceptional hardness that is blended with corundum (a colourless mineral that has some components of Sapphire). This gives the material the strength that is equal to steel but is flexible enough to be made very thin. This gives you endless design possibilities which is why Laufen has some spectacular designs for their basins.

         

        There is also an emphasis on design which does not have any added frills.

        The left side of the picture shows how Laufen integrates eco technology within its tapware system that helps you save water and electricity. The right side of the picture shows how their modern mixers lets you hide most of the mixer behind the wall which gives you a sleeker look and also frees up space around the sink. Photo credit – https://digitalassets.reecegroup.com.au/m/cd0758ca790cad89/original/Kartell-by-Laufen.pdf

         

        ” There are many options available for tapware as well as basins when it comes to a contemporary bathroom design. Some of my clients prefer a more modern and clean look for their basins while some like a more rugged look which showcases the rawness and earthiness of the material. The beauty of contemporary designs is that you can mix and match various styles as there is no specific design for contemporary designs (like for traditional)” explains Cici when asked about the choice for contemporary bathrooms.

        The basin seen above is a great example of a contemporary bathroom design with modern and sleek lines. It is a minimalistic look which is also great for bathrooms which have a smaller space to work with.

        “The bathroom that we renovated in Piha (pictured below0 is a great example of using a sink that shows off its material in its raw form. People often mistake contemporary style with ultra modern. A contemporary bathroom design is all about using materials that are most popular in the current time. This could include elements borrowed from other styles. It is all about highlighting materials” explains Cici about contemporary designs.

        Alape for contemporary and modern designer bathrooms

        Alape is another great brand from Reece that can be used in contemporary, industrial and modern bathroom designs. It is made of a thin sheet of steel which is the fired with a rich enamel coating to give you an even finish. It exudes a sense of luxury that is hard to match and truly elevates the overall bathroom design to make it look like a designer bathroom.

        The vessel sink below has two colours within the sink that provides a beautiful contrast and adds interest to the vanity. The interior white is in a glossy finish against the matte black of the exterior. Our designers do no recommend installing vessel sinks with households where there are very young children. This is because vessel sinks need cleaning around the basin which is not required for insert sinks.

        The insert sink pictured below, would be a better choice for households with children. This sink also gives a more uncluttered look for the surface of your vanity.

        Showers in Contemporary bathrooms

        Showers in contemporary bathrooms often feature wet areas or a tiled shower with a glass door. Most older homes have boxed in showers with an acrylic base which often look too bulky and do not add any aesthetic element to the overall bathroom design.

        Most of our clients opt for a tiled shower with a frameless glass for a clean look for their contemporary bathroom designs. We often install the same floor tiles and wall tiles in the shower as the rest of the bathroom to provide continuity to the bathroom design which in turn makes the bathroom look larger.

        IMG_0750, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland

        This bathroom renovation in West Harbour features a tiled shower with a frameless glass. The frameless glass makes sure that the shower area does not look bulky.

         

        “Some of my bathroom renovation clients prefer a tiled shower that has a raised platform around the perimeter so water does not splash out of the shower when in use. Other clients want a more cleaner and seamless in which case we do not build the raised perimeter”. explains Cici about the types of tiled showers that are popular with our clients.

        This is another example of a raised frameless tiled shower for our bathroom renovation in Piha.

        The wet area in the above bathroom renovation is a great example of a wet area. The partial glass frame separates the shower from the rest of the bathroom. There is no raised platform that separates the rest of the bathroom from the shower area.

         

        The picture below shows a bathroom that we renovated in Westmere (Auckland) where we created a wet area without a raised platform around the perimeter. The same tiles were used throughout the bathroom as well as the wet area to create a seamless bathroom design. While this bathroom has a more rustic style, a similar wet area can be created in a contemporary designer bathroom.

        Flooring and Wall tiles for a Contemporary designer bathroom

        The great thing about contemporary designs is that there are not many style restrictions or limitations. It is all about combining different styles, textures and materials. We work very closely with Ruth and Kalun from Tile depot who routinely help us with selecting the right types of tiles for our client bathrooms. They have extensive knowledge about the evolution of tiles, new innovative products in styles as well as durability so our designers often seek their advice when designing our client bathrooms.

        Ruth recommends using large 600 by 600 or 600 by 900 sized tiles on the floors because it makes the bathroom look larger as there are less breaks in terms of grout lines. Contemporary bathrooms of today usually feature matte tiles for the floor and walls. Cici recommends using dark coloured tiles on the floors for a contemporary bathroom. “Using dark coloured matte tiles on the floors instantly makes the bathroom look more luxurious. You can use a slightly lighter shade for the walls if you are tiling them or use a more lighter colour for your tile”.

         

        “If you look at the bathroom we renovated below, then you can see how a light veined tile on the walls complements the darker tile on the floor to create a open and spacious bathroom” says Cici about using dark tiles on the floor. “It is a common misconception that dark tiles will close up the space and make the bathroom look small” she adds.

        If you like patterned tiles then install them as a feature element on your walls as a lining or as a full feature wall. A great example of a contemporary bathroom design with small patterned tiles on the floor with white subway tiles for the walls.

        “When you look at the bathrooms above you can see that a contemporary bathroom design really has no limitations and that is what makes it fun to design. You can see how different the bathrooms look from Titirangi and Albany but they still fit into the mould of contemporary bathrooms. Traditional elements with ornate designs are the only types of fixtures that do not fit into the idea of contemporary” explains Cici when we asked her why these two bathrooms are considered contemporary

        Our contemporary designer bathroom below is a great example of the different textures, finishes and colours that are used to create today’s contemporary bathroom design. The exterior of the bathtub has a matte finish but the interior has a more polished finish. the real star of the show however, is the combination of dark grey wall tiles against the lighter grey floor tiles.

        Our client Sarah did not want a generic looking off white bathroom but opted for a dark colour palette.

        “People often have the misconception that choosing dark fixtures or tiles will make your space smaller. This does not have to be the case if the darker colour palette is complemented by more lighter colours. If you choose all your tiles, fixtures and other accessories in a dark palette then your bathroom will definitely look smaller and closed in. If you however, choose contrasting colours of light and dark then the result will be a beautiful contemporary space” says Cici about choosing dark colour palettes for bathrooms.

        As discussed above, matte textured tiles have become a preferred  choice for designers and clients alike for contemporary designer bathrooms in NZ.  Large 600 by 600 Pirano grey matt glazed porcelain R10 antislip tiles used on the floors from tile depot. Large 600 by 600 MI Incarico tiles used on the walls from Tile depot.

         

        “Large 600 by 600 or 600, 600 by 900 or 900 by 1200 are very popular for small as well as big bathrooms. They give a more seamless look and provide continuity to the bathroom design as there are fewer grout lines. They are also easier to install and will be less prone to leakage” says Ruth from Tile Depot when we asked her about the size of tiles best suited for bathrooms.

        We created a tiled shower wet area for the bathroom which had the same tiles for its floors and walls to provide continuity to the overall bathroom design. A shower niche was also created to store shampoos and body wash to avoid cluttered floors. A custom glass was cut to fit in the shower’s wet area.

        The bathroom had an awkward corner space behind the bathroom door where we installed a toilet. This was it was partially hidden and we could utilise the space well which gave us the freedom to install larger fixtures (the free standing bathtub, double heated towel rail and double vanity) in the rest of the bathroom.

        As the bathroom was quite narrow, we custom built the vanity as well as the stone engineered countertop. To add to the spa-like contemporary design of the bathroom we installed top standing basins and chrome tapware.

        Vintage bathroom designs NZ  

        Vintage bathroom designs exude an old world charm with its patterned tiles, intricate accessories, warm colours and classic timeless fixtures. Vintage does not mean the dated bathrooms that you see in older homes of Auckland. Vintage bathroom designs of today are all about incorporating classic pieces of fixtures into a modern bathroom.

        For example, vintage bathroom designs include antique looking claw foot bathtubs, free standing vanity in a classic style, tiles with patterns and brushed finish tapware.

        Vanity for Vintage bathroom designs

        During earlier times, basins never really had an cabinetry built underneath or above it. This is the reason that our designer Dorothy recommends using free standing basins without any in-built cabinetry for a vintage bathroom design.

        You can add shelves in form of floating shelves or open cabinetry on the side which are the hallmarks of vintage bathroom designs. The material

        The 3 part tapware shown above is a classic example of vintage style fixtures. The separate hot and cold knobs are reminiscent of older times and hence are the perfect choice for a vintage bathroom design.

        Vintage bathroom designs often include white ceramic vanities with chrome or brushed nickel tapware. Some of our clients also like to include brass fittings to give their bathrooms a more rustic vintage look reminiscent of Spanish Villas.

        Below is a great example of a modern vintage vanity which uses a ceramic basin with brushed nickel trimmings.

        Our client Mary Stuart from Orewa, Auckland (see picture below) wanted her bathroom design to include a flair of Spanish Villas. So she decided to go for a more eclectic vintage look by installing colourful mosaic tiles, brass fittings and wooden vanity.

        Bathtubs in a Vintage Bathroom design

        Bathtubs are an iconic fixture of a vintage bathroom and it should be a free standing one. Think a huge bath with chrome, brushed nickel or brass clawed foot with ornate detailing.

        What are the best tiling options for a vintage bathroom design?

        Tiles are definitely a hallmark of any bathroom design when you are designing a bathroom for any particular style of bathroom. Our in house designer Dorothy often helps our clients with choosing the right type of tiles or fixtures to create a designer bathroom in any style.

         

        “Vintage can mean so many different things to different people. Some go for a more Moorish look and others for more classic Victorian look. The tiles for for each of these different styles of vintage bathrooms will differ. If you are going for a more Moorish or Rustic look then I would suggest tiles which have lots of colour and patterns. Tile Depot has a great collection of glazed handmade looking tiles that would suit a rustic vintage bathroom well. If it is a more Victorian Vintage design then I would go for more classic Neutrals and combine them with a bit of colour. You won’t see a lot of colour in a vintage bathroom in the Victorian style” explains Dorothy about how different Vintage bathroom designs need very different kinds of tiles in their bathroom design.

         

        4. Bathroom Design Trends not to follow

         

        1. All-white bathrooms: While all-white bathrooms can look clean and modern, they can also feel sterile and cold. They can also be difficult to maintain, as any stains or dirt are immediately visible on white surfaces. Consider adding some color or texture to your bathroom design to make it more inviting and comfortable. Costs will vary depending on the extent of the changes made, such as new paint, tiles, or fixtures.
        2. Overly trendy tile designs: While trendy tiles may be appealing now, they may look outdated in just a few years. It’s better to stick with classic tile designs and add interest through accessories like rugs, towels, and artwork. The cost will depend on the type of tile and the size of the bathroom.
        3. Open shelving: While open shelving can look great in photos, it can be difficult to keep organized and can quickly become cluttered. Consider closed storage options for a cleaner and more organized look. Costs will depend on the type of storage units selected.
        4. Large bathtubs: While large bathtubs may be luxurious, they can also take up a lot of space and use a lot of water. Consider a smaller bathtub or even a walk-in shower for a more practical and space-saving option. Costs will depend on the type of bathtub or shower selected, as well as any additional plumbing or electrical work required.
        5. Wall-to-wall carpeting: Carpeting in a bathroom is generally not a good idea, as it can trap moisture and bacteria and be difficult to clean. Consider tile, vinyl, or hardwood flooring for a more practical and hygienic option. Costs will depend on the type of flooring selected and the size of the bathroom.

        By avoiding these design trends, you can create a bathroom that is both stylish and practical. The cost of making these changes will depend on the extent of the renovations, but in general, it’s better to invest in timeless design elements that will stand the test of time.

          Small Bathroom Layout

          After a long day at work, everyone wants to come home to a relaxing bath to unwind or have a rainfall shower. To some, this may be a reality, however, to some these luxury fixtures maybe just a long-term dream. Even though small bathroom designs have a charm of their own, sometimes it may be a daily struggle and stress, due to the limitation of space.

          Do not worry, we have good news! With a well-planned layout, all your struggles and inconveniences will be solved. However, there will be a few compromises that will need to be faced, including tearing out your tub.

          Just by the simple act of rearranging the layout of your bathroom, you can make a tremendous difference. The figures below, highlight the ideal layouts we have picked out, that will work with the most common small bathrooms. These layouts do not need any demolishing and will allow you to keep the same footprint.

          To achieve a functional bathroom layout for a small space, it’s important to consider every aspect of the design, from fixture placement to materials and finishes. Your designer can help you create a cohesive design that maximizes space and functionality while still reflecting your personal style and preferences.

          One of the key considerations when designing a small bathroom layout is fixture placement. You will need to prioritise the placement of key fixtures such as the toilet, sink, and shower/bath to ensure that they are easily accessible and functional. For example, you may want to place the sink near the door to allow for more space in the rest of the bathroom, or opt for a corner sink to free up more floor space.

          In addition to fixture placement, you can incorporate multipurpose elements into the design to save space and enhance functionality. For example, you may want to choose a vanity with built-in storage or a medicine cabinet with a mirror to serve dual purposes. By incorporating these elements into the bathroom design, you can maximise functionality without sacrificing style.

          When it comes to choosing materials and finishes for a small bathroom layout, it’s important to select options that are both durable and visually appealing. Porcelain or ceramic tile is a popular choice for bathroom flooring and walls because it is moisture-resistant and easy to clean. A designer and a renovation company can help you choose the best materials and finishes for your bathroom based on your preferences and budget.

          Your designer will also help you choose the right accessories and storage solutions that maximise functionality in a small bathroom design. This may include towel racks that double as shelving, wall-mounted storage solutions, or even a built-in shower niche to provide additional storage space. By incorporating these small details into the design, you can create a bathroom that is both functional and visually appealing, even in a small space.

          In summary, achieving a functional bathroom layout for a small space requires careful planning and design. By prioritising fixture placement, incorporating multipurpose elements, choosing durable materials and finishes, and selecting accessories and storage solutions that maximise functionality, you can create a bathroom that meets your needs and reflects your personal style.

Depending on your bathing preferences there are two options you can choose from.

          1. Choose a modest tub-shower combo, shown on the left-hand side figure, or.
          2. Choose a fancy shower with multiple shower heads.

          Bathroom Design ideas to create Classic, Vintage, Modern and Contemporary Bathrooms

          Reason one: Having a bathroom in a limited space can take up too much space.

          Reason two: The bathroom can give a bulky image giving your bathroom a cramped feeling. As we are working with limited space, we want to aim to keep the layout simple and have a smooth traffic flow. Another idea to keep your small bathroom spacious, you can position your shower or vanity in the corner.

          Small Bathroom with a Sliding Door

          Having a small bathroom that has both a bathtub and shower may sound like a tricky dream to achieve. However, with a well-planned layout, nothing is impossible! To achieve fitting both fixtures into your small bathroom, and having an enough space to get in/out of your tub and shower, the ideal size of your bathroom should be no less than 45 square feet. Shown on our recommended layout plan above, we can see that there will be limited space for dressing and undressing. Therefore, to make your small bathroom dreams come true and have enough space we recommend swapping out your average swing door with a sliding door.

           

          Narrow Small Bathroom

          Homeowners with narrow and small bathrooms, usually struggle to arrange the placement of essentials fixtures. Most customers find that most standard-sized fixtures stick out too much or interrupt with traffic flow. But do not worry! We have some universal tips that may help with this problem.

          • Outward Swinging Door: An outward swinging door will offer benefits, such as getting in and out of the bathroom with ease, as well as allows you to make the most out of your narrow bathroom.
          • Sink and Toilet Side by Side: By placing your sink and toilet along the same wall, this gives the bathroom a cleaner look, as well as creates storage and foot traffic along the other walls.
          • Wall Niches for Sink and Toilet Cistern: Using wall niches prevents your sink and toilet cistern from sticking out too much. You should consider using wall niches if a standard-sized sink and toilet are too big.
          • Shower Against the Short Wall: Make your narrow bathroom look more spacious and help arrange the rests of your fixtures, by placing your shower against the short wall.

          A tiny bathroom layout is one of the smallest bathroom layout you will find, with dimensions between 20 to 30 square feet. Often, homeowners use these tiny bathrooms as a half bathroom that only contains a toilet and a sink. However, even though the space is small, you can still make use of the space and create a full bathroom without the need to carve out extra space. How? Is it very simple, use a sink faucet converter. With a sink faucet converter your sink can do double-duty as a shower and a sink without the extra space. But note, you will need to make sure you get a drain installed on your floor.

          Small bathroom owners, there is no need to envy big bathrooms. With a simple layout, you can make your small bathroom look more spacious and more comfortable. Feel free to contact us for more information regarding renovating your small bathroom.

          How to Maximise the Space for Small Bathroom Renovation?

          In most cases, the bigger the home there is a lack of evenly distributing the space. There are usually a lot of excess storage or closet space, but only one or one-and-a-half bathrooms. Yes, extra storage may sound very appealing, however adding an extra bathroom to your floor plan can have great benefits. It will pay off significantly when you ever decide to resell your home and will make your life easier if you have a large family, or ever decide to expand your family.

          If you find a little bit of extra space in your home, maybe you have an extra closet space you do not use, or there is corner in your living room you can close off. Or even if you have unnecessary space in your home that needs a bit of love. We recommend you consider converting it into a bathroom!

          10 tips you can maximise the space for a small bathroom renovation.

          1. Take in account of fixtures and solutions of your small bathroom

          The next step when you have finalized the location of your small bathroom is to make a design plan. Do not underestimated the size of your small bathroom. Even small bathrooms need a bathroom layout and bathroom design, that include the essentials- a sink, lighting, a toilet, and other fixtures (mirrors and cabinets).

          Depending on the size of the space you are wanted to renovate, turning a moderately sized closet into a full bathroom can be a challenge. However, give up hope just yet! If you are effective with your space, you can use space-saving fixtures such as fold-up tubs, corner showers or half-footprint tubs.

          2. Be Careful with Plumbing

          Make sure where you are placing plumbing fixtures, if possible, try to locate them near existing water and sewage lines. By doing this, it will be a huge time and money saver, as you will not need to pay extra costs to relocate pipes. Another aspect to take caution, is adding fixtures to your small bathroom design. Make sure to check the structure of the floor before making any further additions. This means you will need to ensure the floor maintain the weight of new fixtures if the floor seems like it will not support the weight you can alternatively reinforce the floor by adding more joists.

          3. Plan for you Towel Hanging Space

          Since you will be working with limited space, suing a washstand that comes with built in towel bars can be a great space-saver.

          4. Windows and Venting

          A crucial aspect of a small bathroom renovation that is often ignored during the planning process is venting and window space. The main concerns are usually focused on plumbing; however, a form of ventilation is very important and required to avoid any development of mold and mildew.

          If the circumstances of your new small bathroom cannot fit a window, you can use fan vents to help keep air circulating. No one wants a stuffy bathroom, by investing in a fan vent it will reduce stuffiness, as well as prevent any development of mold or mildew.

          Ultimately, you should consider talking to your contractor about which option, whether it is installing a vent or adding a window, is best fit for you!

          5. Taller and Leggier Tables are your Best Friend!

          Opting for tall, open base tables will significantly take up less space in your floor plan. Remember it is important to make the most of your small bathroom space.

          6. Simplicity is Key

          The overuse of colour and patterns can give your small bathroom a negative effect. When colour and patterns are overdone, especially in smaller spaces, it will make the bathroom look enclosed, cluttered and claustrophobic. To avoid this, we recommend using paint or tiles with bright, simple colours that will make your small bathroom feel and look more open.

          7. Simple Storage Solutions for Small Bathroom Designs

          Extra storage in the bathroom is always a nice touch to have, however, storage should not be put in at the expense of mobility. Especially for small bathrooms, storages and fixtures should be spaced out so they are accessible and still have room in the bathroom for movement.

          If space is very limited, where the vanities are taking too much room in the small bathroom, you should consider using medicine cabinets instead or small racks instead!

          Remember, before going ahead with any construction on your small bathroom, make sure you are keeping everything up to code and your local ordinances. Have a look at the permits for your town or suburb.

          8. Use a pedestal sink

          pedestal sink can be a stylish and space-saving solution for a small bathroom layout. This type of sink sits on a pedestal, taking up less floor space than a traditional vanity.

          9. Use floating shelves

          Remodeling your Small Bathroom by Function

          The planning process of your small bathroom remodeling journey can vary depending on the room’s function. The function of each room determines on what type of finishes you install. For example, for a children bath you would usually use less expensive and function fixtures, such as a basic bathtub and new surrounds. However, on the other hand, for a master or main bathroom you may use high-end finishes, such as a glass tiled walk-in shower and glass mosaic features. Functions and fixtures used for guest bathrooms usually consists of a mixture of both two extremes.

          5 Ways you can Renovate your Bathroom Cost-Effectively.

          8 Mistakes to Avoid for a Small Bathroom Renovation

          Designing a small bathroom can be a challenge, but with the right approach, you can make the most of the space you have. Here are some mistakes to avoid when designing a small bathroom

          1. Not Having a Budget

          Many first-time renovators do not priorities time to plan their costs and budgets before renovating their small bathroom. Not having a detailed understanding of the costs and your set budgets will cause major setbacks along the journey. It is important to know what aspects of your bathroom you are wanting to repair or replace and know what your cost limits are. Find a company that respects and fits your budget. By doing this, it will prevent any bumps along the journey- including not being able to complete the renovation.

          Top Tips on How to Remodel your Bathroom Within Your Budget.

           2. Poor Ventilation

          Air circulation and having a good ventilation system for your bathroom is key. This is often overlooked resulting in many bathrooms with poor ventilation. Poor ventilation equals a damp bathroom and the growth of mold and mildew. No one likes having a damp, suffocating bathroom. There are always alternative ventilation options, such as extraction fans if your bathroom does not come with a window.

           3. Poor Finishes

          The most common mistake people make when trying to budget or cut corners is not using good quality trades and products. When budgeting, we recommend prioritizing investing in good waterproof fixtures and the best finishes you can afford. These aspects will contribute to making your bathroom look and feel more luxurious.

          4. Wrong Choice of Materials

          The bathroom deals with a lot of wet surfaces due to all the washing and splashing of water. Therefore, it is crucial you select materials that are suitable to high amounts of moisture. This is especially important for your vanity top, cabinets, and tiles as the necessities for a long-lasting bathroom. We recommend avoiding materials made from wood, metal and porous. These materials are more prone to either rot, rust or gathering more bacteria.

          5. Bad Lighting

          Bathrooms with dim lighting may make your bathroom selfie look amazing. However, bright lightening is an important aspect to a good functional bathroom. Having good crisp lighting in your bathroom makes it easier to clean and a provides shadow-free lighting to make tasks such as applying make up easier. Imagine all the mildew and mold growth you will miss when cleaning in dim light!

          Lighting is essential in a small bathroom layout, as it can make the space feel brighter and more open. However, poor lighting can have the opposite effect, making the bathroom feel dark and cramped. When it comes to lighting, it’s important to incorporate multiple sources of light, such as overhead lighting, task lighting, and natural light if possible. For example, you can install a bright ceiling light, a mirror with built-in lighting, and a small table lamp for task lighting. Additionally, you can install a frosted glass window to allow natural light to enter the bathroom while still maintaining privacy.

          6. Unskilled DIY

          It may be very tempted to have a go at plumbing or tiling your bathroom yourself. Many homeowners think due to the size, renovating the bathroom is a simple process. However, there are approximately up to 10 to 12 trades involved. Renovating your bathroom is not as easy as it seems, so make sure you consult with a professional before moving forward.

          7. Neglecting Storage

          When it comes to a small bathroom, storage is critical. Neglecting storage can lead to clutter and disorganization, which can make the bathroom feel even smaller. Incorporating storage solutions such as shelves, cabinets, and baskets can help maximize the available space and keep the bathroom tidy. A great way to optimize storage is to use vertical space by installing shelves or cabinets above the toilet or door. Additionally, you can use storage solutions that can serve dual purposes, such as a mirror with built-in storage or a shower caddy that hangs from the showerhead.

          8. Oversized fixtures

          Using oversized fixtures in a small bathroom can make the space feel cramped and overwhelming. Instead, opt for smaller fixtures that are specifically designed for small spaces. For example, you can choose a pedestal sink or a wall-mounted sink instead of a larger vanity. Additionally, you can choose a compact bathtub or a walk-in shower instead of a traditional bathtub with a shower curtain. Using smaller fixtures can help free up space in the bathroom and create a more open and airy feel.

          9 . Bad Placement of Fixtures

          Just having good-quality fixtures and a nice design means nothing without good placement. Placement is very important. No one wants to walk straight into a toilet, or have a toilet placed right behind the toilet. It is crucial you consider the placement and think about what placements work and what do not. This is where designers are here to help!

          10. Overcomplicating your Bathroom design

          When designing a small bathroom, it’s important to keep the design simple and minimalist. Overcomplicating the bathroom design can lead to a cluttered and overwhelming space. Instead, opt for a limited color palette and simple, clean lines. For example, you can choose a neutral color for the walls and add pops of color through accessories such as towels or artwork. Additionally, you can choose a simple, streamlined sink and vanity instead of a more ornate option.

          11. Choosing the wrong materials

          Choosing the wrong materials can make a small bathroom feel even smaller. For example, using dark tiles or heavy drapes can make the space feel closed off and claustrophobic. Instead, opt for light-colored tiles and sheer window treatments to create a more open and airy feel. Another small bathroom idea is to use mirrors strategically to reflect light and make the space feel larger.

          12. Using too many patterns in your Small bathroom Design

          While adding patterns and textures can be a great way to add visual interest to a small bathroom design, it’s important to use them sparingly. Too much pattern or texture can make the bathroom design feel busy and overwhelming, so consider using a single patterned tile as an accent, or incorporating texture through accessories such as a woven basket or a fluffy bath mat. Another small bathroom idea is to use a patterned shower curtain, which can add a pop of color and pattern without overwhelming the space.

          This bathroom that we renovated in Titirangi, shows that when cleverly designed, a small bathroom  design can incorporate patterns. Our client did not want a generic contemporary bathroom design but wanted art deco tiles to create a visual impact. Hence, we chose patterned white and black tiles in a small size for the flooring. However, since it was a small space, we decided to keep the patterns and colours of wall tiles simplistic. We installed matte white subway tiles for 2 of the walls with black grouting to match the floor tiles. The other 2 walls were painted a neutral white. In order to bring some warmth within the bathroom design, we installed cabinetry with wooden oak paneling with black trimmings to promote continuity with the rest of the bathroom which created a cohesive bathroom design.

          13. Ignoring the door swing

          When designing a small bathroom, it’s important to consider the swing of the door. If the door swings inward, it can take up valuable floor space and make the bathroom feel even smaller. Consider using a pocket door or a barn door that slides along the wall to maximize the available space. This small bathroom design idea can also add a unique touch to the space.

          As seen below, we created a barn style sliding door for this bathroom we renovated below in Greenhithe, Auckland. This was done to maximise the space within this small bathroom. We wanted to ensure that we fitted a large bathtub, toilet, vanity and shower. As the corridor outside was very narrow, we could not build a door that swung out towards the corridor and in order to accommodate a toilet next to the door we could not build a door that swung inwards.

          14. Not Utilising the corners

          Corners can be a great place to add storage or fixtures in a small bathroom. Consider installing a corner sink or a corner shower to free up space in the center of the room. Additionally, you can use corner shelves or cabinets to store toiletries or towels. This small bathroom idea can help you make the most of every inch of space available.

          15. Forgetting Functionality

          While aesthetics are important in any bathroom design, it’s essential to prioritize functionality in a small space. Make sure to choose fixtures and storage solutions that are practical and easy to use. Additionally, consider incorporating features such as a handheld showerhead or a medicine cabinet with adjustable shelves to make the space work for your needs. These small bathroom ideas can help you create a beautiful and functional space.

          There are many ways you can change up your small bathroom. All you need is to find the right layout that best fits your needs. The key elements to make your small bathroom renovation less hectic have been highlighted throughout this blog.

Which is why it’s important to think about the layout of your brand-new bathroom and which kind of style you might be going for.

            Contemporary Bathroom Design Ideas – How to Design a Contemporary Bathroom

            There are many bathrooms design NZ that can be suited to your home. As you know there are many different bathroom styles available to you. Our contemporary bathroom design ideas reflect a more design approach with flowing curves, hard angles, and geometric patterns. This bathroom design is starting to appear more in homes nowadays as we move away from traditional bathroom design. Of course, this is all about preference. So, if you’re move interested in a traditional bathroom design then we can make that happen for you.

            What is the difference between contemporary bathroom design and modern bathroom design? Firstly, the main difference are the years. Modern design begun around 1920s and 1930s. Secondly, you can also tell the difference between the two based on the different looks. Modern bathroom design is characterized by clean lines, neutral colours, and natural materials. This will help give the house or the bathroom a minimalistic aesthetic.

            Contemporary bathroom design often draw inspiration from modernism and mid-century modern and doesn’t commit to a single aesthetic. It can have many different aesthetics, but they all tie together and make the room look nice and not overwhelming, Contemporary bathrooms also use glass and metal materials to even copper as this can work very well in a contemporary bathroom style. Which is why this bathroom style gets mistaken for a modern bathroom style.

            Whilst traditional bathroom style use more wood, stone, and porcelain materials. Whereas contemporary bathroom designs use synthetics material like laminates and plastics, granite, stone, and stainless steel. This is what you’ll see in a contemporary bathroom. When trying to see which style is which, keep an eye out on the materials that are used, and you’ll have a rough idea.

            Guide to small bathroom renovations 

            8 Elements of a Contemporary Bathroom Design in NZ

            1.    Clean Lines

            Contemporary bathrooms feature unbroken horizontal lines. Curvy, undulating planes are not relevant here, and cabinet hardware is kept simple.

            2.    Authentic Materials

            How to design a bathroom? With a contemporary bathroom you’d want to choose materials that have and authenticity to them. We should be celebrating materials like wood or concrete instead of trying to alter them.

            For this bathroom design idea, cabinets will lack any kind of decorative features like face frames or mouldings. Everything has been reduced to its most basic forms and components; there are only the necessities here. Cabinet and vanity doors have smooth, single-plane surfaces. Bathroom tiles design will be perfectly flush with the grout.

            For this style, we’re going for a cleaner, simpler design. Once you consider having tiles patterning on the wall or chose more complex tiles then we’re moving away from the simpler design of the contemporary bathroom.

            Glass and Steel Shower Enclosure

            If you look at any industrial bathrooms, you’d be able to see that matte black fittings look amazing for this style. It really makes the room pop! For your shower you can get a black framed shower door made from steel or aluminium. These materials are vital for this style. You can finish the look off with a sliding door or a glass shower door.

            Hardworking Raw Materials

            To add authentic character to your industrial bathroom design, focus on using raw materials like stainless stell, brick, timber beans and concrete. This would be a main point in your bathroom rather than having paint. Another benefit to this is that this material won’t deteriorate as quickly as other materials.

            Design Detail – White Subway Tiles

            Bathroom tiles design can be trick with an industrial bathroom design style. We recommend going with the white subways tiles as it provides the bathroom with a clean, crisp look. You can increase your contrast by adding dark grout to your bathroom tiles design.

            Design Detail – Hefty Sliding Doors

            For such a complex bathroom, you’d want to go all out with this style. We recommend choosing a sliding door to finish off the room. Larger, heavier-duty sliding doors are a factory-inspired take on the barn door trend that are ideal for industrial bathrooms. Furthermore, heavier sliding doors offer more privacy than standard wooden barn doors.

            Finishing Touches

            An industrial bathroom style is not for everyone as there aren’t many opportunities for you to add colour or have decorative flourishes. Finishing touches for this bathroom is just a few carefully chosen details are enough to complete the space. Exposed pipes, gear like faucets and hardware, metal stools and potted plants are excellent choices to finish off your bathroom design NZ.

            在新西兰装修一个浴室需要多少钱 – 2022年

            10月05日,2022

            这篇文章已经更新了更多的内容和项目,以反映2022年的浴室装修费用趋势。

            浴室装修可能看起来是一项很简单直接的工作, 其实并非如此。事实上, 浴室装修往往是所有装修中最复杂的,因为它涉及到许多工种在一个相对狭小的空间里施工。

            当考虑了所有的因素之后,才能确定奥克兰2022年的平均浴室装修费用是多少。卫生间装修涉及的工种包括设计师、拆除工、水管工、电工、瓦工、防水工、安装工、油漆工、注浆工和抹灰工。试想一下,当需要在一个如此狭小的空间内管理上述行业,您就很容易理解为什么浴室装修的关键是组织和计划.如果您有一位项目经理在现场为您管理这些工种的话,那么装修浴室通常需要花费2-3周的时间就可以完成。

            如果您自己管理这些行业,就可能会因为要和许多不同的公司打交道而导致预算超支,或者延长项目的时间。所以我们的第一个建议是找一家提供项目经理作为其服务的一部分的公司。

            但是关于项目管理问题稍后再讨论,我们先聊一下浴室翻新所涉及到的费用。

            在你装修浴室之前,先问问自己装修的原因,然后再制定计划。一旦你确定了装修的原因,我们就可以制定计划和相关的费用了

            1. 在奥克兰翻新一个浴室需要多少钱?

            无论你是在同一所房子里住了好几年,还是刚买了一栋老房子,你都可能面临需要翻新旧浴室的问题。大多数奥克兰人都知道,翻新浴室可能是装修中最昂贵的装修之一。因此,人们在考虑翻新浴室时,首先要问的自然是,新浴室的平均翻新费用是多少?

             

            然而,这也是最难回答的问题之一,因为装修浴室对不同的人意味着不同的事情。

            例如,一个大型浴室装修可能涉及浴室的布局的改变、购买新的浴室设备、购买固定装置,
            改变地板、新油漆、改变水管和电气工程,这可能意味着中档浴室的平均费用21,000纽币    ~24,000纽币之间(这可能是最受欢迎的选择)

            另一方面,如果您只打算刷一层新的油漆,并做一些其他的小改动,那么新浴室装修的平均  费用可能只有几千纽币。

            不过,由于大多数浴室装修都介于这两个区间值,因此新浴室装修的平均费用将介于这两个区间值之间。

             

             

                   如何计算出新浴室装修的平均费用

            虽然新浴室装修的平均费用会因工作和情况的不同而变化,但您可能想知道您的浴室装   修要花多少钱。在Superior Renovations我们有一些提示,可以帮助您确定浴室装修的费用。

            • 首先要确定您装修浴室的目的。您需要更大的空间吗? 您的浴室是否需要进行现代化改造,以便与您家其他地方的装饰风格保持一致? 一旦您确定了目的,您就会对实现目标所需的东西有更清晰的认识。
            • 将您需要改造的所有东西列一个清单,如灯具、照明、油漆、瓷砖、橱柜、地板等。
            • 把雇人做装修的费用算进去。

            请记住,您可以先做浴室装修的大项目,然后再加入一些小细节来帮助您分摊该装修工作  的费用。

             

            2. 为什么你需要重新翻新你的浴室?

            拥有一个计划可以确保你的钱正花在正确的地方.

            不同的家庭对浴室翻新的需求也不同. 人们对配件的选择,以及是选择浴缸还是淋浴间或是两个都选,都由他们的装修理由来决定。

            1. 一个年轻的家庭

            一个年轻的家庭和一个有着大孩子的家庭相比,装修的需求是非常不同的。如果你有一个 蹒跚学步的孩子或一个即将出生的新生儿,而你的浴室里没有浴缸,那么在装修中加入一个浴缸将是一个明智的选择。

            1. 成长中的家庭/增加便利

            家庭的成长可能意味着你需要更多的空间让成年人更舒适地在房子里生活。这也可能意味  着需要再建一个独立的厕所,或者将一个套房分成一个厕所和一个浴室。如果你的家里有空间,那么你可以增加一个完整的浴室来增加便利。

            1. 增加再出售的价值

            如果你想在出售或出租房屋前增加价值,我们建议客户不要过度投资。租房者和买家都喜欢不用装修的房子。他们想要的是几乎不需要维修的最新房屋。

            一般来说,卫生间的装修每花1纽币就能增加1.5纽币的价值。正在打算出售房屋的人应该考虑使用既简单又最新的产品和装置。如果你要出售,没有必要买一个花费3000纽币的设计师水槽,因为这不会产生任何投资回报。

            1. 提高生活质量,增加一个豪华浴室

            如果你在装修时想增加舒适度和一点豪华感,那么过度投资也不失为一个好主意。如果你的空间很小,你可以选择湿润室风格的浴室,制造一个像温泉一样的感觉,甚至可以在3000纽币的水槽上大肆挥霍。你的预算决定了装修效果,其可能性是无穷无尽的。

            3.降低新浴室装修平均成本的技巧

            你还需要记住,新浴室装修的平均费用只是一个估算的数字。 但是,有一些方法可以降低浴室装修的成本,包括:

            • 浴室橱柜–与其更换浴室橱柜,不如考虑对其进行修复,或将其粉刷成新的现代颜色。您还可以对浴缸和水槽进行修复,使其焕然一新。
            • 使用新的水龙头和把手,而不是所有新的浴室装置–很多时候,仅仅改变水槽和浴缸的把手和水龙头,就足以让您的浴室看起来更加现代。
            • 轻装上阵—实际上,您不必为了让浴室看起来更宽敞而扩大其面积。其实,将您的浴室刷成浅黄色或米色,也可以使它看起来很宽敞,而不是通过拆掉一堵墙。

            无论您是想进行完整的浴室翻新,还是只想让您的浴室焕然一新,请在9点至5点之间致电0800-199-888,我们将很乐意为您提供帮助。

            Superior Renovations

            更换淋浴器的平均费用

            更换淋浴器的平均费用在1150到8850纽币之间,这取决于你想要的尺寸和功能。安装一个新的亚克力淋浴箱可能只需支付1150纽币–虽然瓷砖淋浴器是一个更豪华的选择,但它们更难清洁,所以那些时间紧的人可能更愿意选择易于清洁的亚克力淋浴器。如果你需要添加水管或者你想使用昂贵的材料,总价会更高,尤其如果你想重新做一整个的瓷砖翻新。

             

            项目 人工和材料花费
            亚克力 $700 – $1,600
            定制淋浴器 $1,200 – $3,200
            淋浴房玻璃门 $800 – $2,000
            新水龙头 $100 – $1,200
            增加水管设施 $700 – $1,800

               4.安装瓷砖淋浴器的成本

            瓷砖淋浴房的价格较高,这也反映在价格上,安装一个新的瓷砖淋浴房需要1550至8250纽币。如果你只需要更换墙面和地面材料,重新铺设一个淋浴房的费用在1500到3500纽币之间,这还不包括防水费用。它在颜色、图案和设计方面提供了更多选择。精心设计的瓷砖墙面可以让人眼前一亮。

            瓷砖的价格约为每平方米25纽币。天然石材和其他高端的选择可以达到每平方米75纽币。

             

            更换一个淋浴器的花费

            拆除旧设备 $100 – $200
            清理杂物 $200 – $400
            表面准备 $400 – $900
            新的淋浴器 $850 – $6,750
            总共 $1,550 – $8,250

            5.浴室翻新的平均花费

            奥克兰的大多数家庭都有一个独立的并且经常被忽视的厕所。通常空间很小,有老式的变色的乙烯基地板和一个马桶,实在很难令人满意。如果你正在装修你的浴室,那么这将是一个考虑将你的马桶也翻新一下的好时机。这将节省你的时间,因为浴室和马桶可以同时进行翻新。一般来说,如果厕所的翻新与浴室的翻新一起进行,会比较便宜,这样就不会出现劳动力/资源和产品的双重浪费。

            这包括在重新铺设瓷砖之前拆除浴室内的所有固定装置、马桶、洗涤槽(如果有的话)和配件。每个马桶大约需要5-10个左右的工作日,新的配件必须在开始之前购买。

             

            以下是一个作为粗略的厕所翻新价格和工作范围的指导。

            瓷砖工程

            1.供应和铺设墙砖至天花板高度 – 1900-3150纽币(取决于尺寸和复杂程度)

            2.供应和铺设厕所地砖 – 800纽币 – 1000纽币

            水管工程

            1.供应和安装01套马桶和坐便器喷头 – 520纽币 – 850纽币(取决于型号)

            2.供应和安装01套洗脸盆和水龙头-$250 – $420 (视型号而定)

            3.供应和更换马桶的不锈钢管道 – $450 – $800(取决于冷/热)。

            拖运和处理

            1.运输和处理产生的垃圾 – 350纽币 – 600纽币

            需要购买的物品

            1.购买新马桶和马桶翻新的配件 – 200纽币至300纽币及以上

            估算厕所翻新费用:6xxx纽币及以上的全部厕所翻新覆盖工作

            预计周转时间:5-6个工作日

            6.在新西兰装修一间浴室平均要花多少钱?

            2021年价格指南

            一旦你知道你装修的确切原因,你就可以开始计划你的装修预算了。如果你是通过一家装修公司进行装修,那么你的装修将包括拆卸、提供产品和固定装置、安装、防水、地板、油漆和最重要的项目管理。

             

            浴室装修类型      平均浴室装修费用
             

            标准浴室的小型改造(不是拆除所有东西)

            如果您希望将浴室的装修费用控制在较低水平,或者至少低于平均费用,您可以选择。与其完全重新布置浴室,不如将水槽、浴缸、淋浴器和马桶留在原处,这样成本会更低。只需将旧的型号换成新版本即可。

            $10,000 – $15,000
            中档浴室装修

            翻新浴室对房主来说有几个好处,不仅仅是让房间看起来更好和改善它的功能。在主浴室增加一个水槽,改善照明,让淋浴功能更好,这些都是浴室更新的几个例子,从长远来看会有回报。

            $21,000 – $24,000
             

            定制浴室装修(高端)

            如果你有更多的钱,你可以通过以下几个方式来升级你的装修。一种选择是定制高质量的台面

            一种选择是定制高质量的台面,比如石英或定制切割的花岗岩台面。此外,你可能想要投资高质量的灯具,比如青铜或铜和实木制成的水龙头,釉面的橱柜。

            $27,000 – $32,000 +

              욕실 리노베이션 비용은 얼마나 들까요? 2023

              욕실 이노베이션은 어쩌면 심플하고 단순해 보일 수 있습니다. 그러나 이것은 진실과 그렇지 않습니다. 사실 욕실 공사는 비교적 좁은 공간에 관련된 많은 시공 작업으로 인해 모든 인테리어 공사 중 가장 복잡합니다.

              202년 오클랜드의 평균 욕실 수리비용은 다양한 요소를 고려하여 결정할 수 있습니다. 욕실 리노베이션에는 디자이너, 해체공, 배관공, 전기공, 타일러, 방수공, 설치공, 페인트공, 그루터, 도장공이 포함됩니다. 작은 공간에서 위의 모든 사람을 관리한다고 상상해 보면 욕실 공사에 조직과 계획이 얼마나 중요한지 쉽게 이해가 갈 것입니다. 일반적으로 현장에 프로젝트 매니저가 상주하며 거래를 관리하는 경우에도 욕실 리노배이션이 완료되는 데는 2-3주가 걸립니다.

              스스로 현장을 관리하는 것은 매우 다양한 회사와 거래를 해야 하기 때문에 예산을 낭비하거나 프로젝트의 일정을 연장할 위험이 있습니다. 우리의 첫 번째 조언은 프로젝트 매니저를 제공하는 회사를 찾는 것입니다.

              프로젝트 관리에 앞서 욕실 시공과 관련된 비용에 대해 먼저 이야기해보겠습니다.
              욕실을 리노베이션 하기 전에 그 이유와 계획을 스스로에게 물어보세요. 욕실 시공에 관한 계획과 예산은 시공의 목적을 알아야 책정할 수 있습니다.

              다음 가지 사항에 대해 이야기 해봅시다.

              1.오클랜드에서 평균 욕실수리비용은 얼마인가요?

              1. 오클랜드에서 시공된 욕실 예시

              1. 오클랜드에서 욕실시공은 얼마나 들까요?

              여러분이 몇 년 동안 같은 집에서 살았든 더 오래된 집을 샀든 간에 여러분은 오래된 욕실을 수리해야 할 필요성에 놓였을지도 모릅니다. 대부분의 오클랜드 사람들이 알고 있듯이, 욕실수리는 많은 비용이 드는 공사입니다. 따라서 사람들이 욕실을 바꾸려고 마음을 먹었을 때 가장 먼저 던지는 질문 중 하나는 새로운 욕실 공사의 평균 비용이 얼마인가 하는 것입니다.

              하지만, 다양한 사람들이 다양한 이유로 시공을 하기 때문에 대답하기 가장 어려운 질문들 중 하나입니다.
              예를 들어, 주요 욕실 리노베이션에는 욕실 배치 변경, 새 욕실 가전제품 구입, 고정장치 구입, 바닥 교체, 새 페인트 교체, 배관 교체 및 전기 작업이 포함될 수 있으며, 중간 범위로 시공했을 때 18,000달러에서 22,000달러 사이일 수 있습니다(가장 인기 있는 선택으로 보입니다.)

               그린레인의 욕실 리노베이션

               

              반면에 당신이 페인트 칠만 새로 하고 아주 소소한 것들만 바꿔야 한다면 욕실 리노베이션의 비용은 단지 몇 천 달러밖에 들지 않을 것입니다..
              그러나 대부분의 욕실 공사 비용은 이 두가지 비용의 사이의 범주에 있으므로 새로운 욕실시공 비용도 이 금액 사이에서 이루어 질것입니다.

              욕실공사 비용은 어떻게 산출할까요?

              • 욕실 시공의 목적을 결정하는 것부터 시작하세요. 공간이 더 필요하신 가요? 욕실이 집에 맞게 현대화되어야 하나요? 일단 목적을 결정하면 당신은 그 목표를 성취하기 위해 무엇이 필요한지 더 명확하게 알 수 있을 것입니다.
                • 집기, 조명, 페인트, 타일, 장식장, 바닥재 등 리모델링에 필요한 모든 것의 목록을 만드세요.
                • 필요한 인원의 인건비를 계산해 보세요.

              먼저 가장 크게 수리할 부분을 선택하고 세부적은 디테일을 추가하시면 전체 수리비용을 분산시킬 수 있습니다.

              2.당신의 욕실은 리노베이션이 필요할까요?

              계획을 세우면 공사비가 적절히 쓰이고 있는지 확신할 수 있습니다.
              집집마다 필요한 욕실공사의 이유가 다르듯이 적절한 제품을 고르고 욕조를 시공할지 샤워부스를 할 지의 선택은 당신이 욕실공사를 하려는 이유에서부터 결정됩니다.

              1.      신혼부부

              신혼부부나 젊은 연령대의 가족들은 중년층과는 필요사항이 다릅니다. 만약 아기가 있거나 아기를 계획하고 있다면 욕실 시공에 욕조를 포함하는 것은 현명한 선택일 것입니다.

              2.      확대가족 / 편의성의 증가

              가족이 늘어난다는 것은 성인이 집에서 편안하게 살 수 있는 더 많은 공간이 필요하다는 것을 의미합니다. 별도의 화장실을 만들거나 기존의 욕실을 화장실과 샤워로 분리할 필요가 있다는 것을 의미이기도 합니다. 집에 공간이 있다면 욕실 전체를 추가해 편의성을 높일 수 있습니다

              3.      매매를 위한 가치상승

              만약 집을 팔거나 임대하기 전에 가치를 더하려고 한다면, 우리는 고객들에게 너무 많은 돈을 쓰지 말라고 충고합니다. 임대인과 구매자들은 모두 개조할 필요가 없는 집을 선호합니다. 그들은 수리할 필요가 거의 없거나 조금이라도 업데이트된 집을 원합니다.
              일반적으로 말해서, 욕실 리노베이션에는 1달러당 1.50달러가 추가됩니다. 집을 팔려고 한다면 심플한 신제품과 붙박이를 사용하는 것이 좋습니다. 집을 팔기 위해 3,000달러짜리 디자이너 싱크대는 살 필요가 없습니다. 그렇게 하면 투자 수익이 나지 않기 때문입니다.

              4.     삶의 질 향상/고급 욕실 추가

              예산을 추가한다면 얼마든지 편안하고 고급스러운 욕실을 만들 수 있습니다. 작은 공간에 3000달러짜리 세면대를 가진 스파 느낌의 습식 사우나도 만들 수도 있습니다. 당신의 예산에 따라 가능성은 무한합니다.

              3. 욕실시공의 평균비용을 줄이는

              욕실시공의 평균비용은 단지 어림잡은 것이라는 것을 명심해야 합니다. 그러나 아래 목록을 참고하여 시공비를 줄일 수 있는 방법은 있습니다.

              • 욕실 캐비닛– 욕실 캐비닛을 교체하는 대신에 새로 색을 칠하는 것을 고려해보세요. 세면대와 욕조도 도색을 하여 새것처럼 보일 수 있습니다.
              • 모든 욕실제품을 바꾸는 대신 손잡이와 수도꼭지만 교체하세요. 단순히 싱크대, 욕조 손잡이와 수도꼭지를 바꾸는 것만으로도 욕실이 더 현대적으로 보입니다.
              • 밝게 하기 – 실제로 화장실을 넓어 보이게 하기 꼭 공간을 넓힐 필요는 없습니다.  좀 더 밝은 노란색이나 베이지색으로 칠하면 벽을 허물지 않고도 넓어 보이는 효과가 있습니다.

              전체적으로 욕실 리노베이션을 원하시거나, 좀더 현대적으로 바꾸길 원하신다면, , 0800-199-8889로 9시에서 5시 사이에 전화주세요. 기꺼이 도와드리겠습니다.

              5. 평균적인 화장실 수리비용

              오클랜드 대부분의 가정에는 방치되거나 분리된 화장실이 따로 있습니다. 구식장판이 깔려진 좁은 화장실은 자랑하고 싶은 공간은 아닐 겁니다. 만약 여러분이 욕실을 수리하고 있다면, 지금이 여러분의 화장실도 함께 바꿀 수 있는 좋은 기회일 것입니다.  화장실과 욕실을 동시에 수리하면 시간을 절약할 수 있습니다. 일반적으로 욕실과 화장실 리모델링이 동시에 이루어지면 인건비/자원 및 제품이 이중으로 증가하지 않기 때문에 더 저렴 해집니다.

              여기에는 타일링을 다시 만들기 전에 욕실의 모든 고정 장치, 화장실, 세면기(있는 경우) 및 부속품을 제거하는 작업이 포함됩니다. 화장실 한 개당 5-10일 정도 소요되며, 새 부속품을 구입해야 합니다.

              아래는 대략적인 화장실 수리비용과 작업범위 가이드입니다.

                  Bathroom Renovation

                  Do you need a Bathtub or a Walk-in Shower for your new Bathroom?

                  When it comes to renovating your bathroom, most people cannot make up their mind on whether they want a walk in shower or a bathtub. A bathtub is great for a nice relaxing bath but a shower is a blessing when you are getting late for work in the morning.

                  Choosing between a walk-in shower renovation and bathtub installation could be a daunting task when it comes to getting a bathroom renovation. Weighing features, pros, and cons can make things complicated. We’ve put together a guide on how to choose between bathtub and walk-in showers, and how one of them can be a value adding element to have a renovated bathroom.

                  Do You Have an existing Bathtub?

                  Walk-in showers are trendy and look beautiful but ripping out tubs will isolate couples having small children. So if you want to sell your home, you need to consider this factor. It’s important to know that houses with one fully equipped bathroom are the best for having multiple combination shower/tub bathrooms in your home.

                  Remember:

                  If you have a tub installed in the small guest room’s bathroom, then you should replace it with a walk-in shower so that one can have enough space to change.

                  But if you have a bathtub in your master suite, then you can keep it or update it for resale purpose. Moreover, if it is in your forever lovely home, and you never use it, then maybe you can replace it with a luxury sauna.
