The first step is a phone call where we can find out what your perfect bathroom looks like. We’ll cover your specific needs, discuss your investment and your ideal timeline.
A visit to one of our showrooms will help to clarify what’s possible when it comes to modern bathroom designs. Our team will walk you through our massive range of fixtures and fittings, and we’ll go over your planned project in more detail.
One of our design consultants will visit your home to go over every part of the project from timing and logistics to styling and design. Measurements will be taken so that we can advise on hot water cylinder configuration, flooring insulation, fitting suitability, and even potential building code issues. This will help us lock down your investment and the timeline for completion.
The next step is for your consultant to design a detailed bathroom layout for you using our advanced 3D software. This will allow us to make the concept stages start to come to life in line with your expectations, including different colours, flooring options and tile designs.
Your consultant will meet with you in our showroom to present the 3D layout and show you the products that have been selected to fit your bathroom plan. The full project plan will also be available, so you’ll be able to go over every aspect of the installation right down to the smallest detail before finalizing it. The bathroom will then be ordered and scheduled for installation.
Our reputation is vitally important to us, so there will never be any hidden costs or overselling, just experts helping your perfect bathroom renovation to become a reality, exactly as you pictured it.
Because we take care of everything from manufacture and design to the physical installation itself, we stand behind our work like few others.
Bathroom Direct guarantees that all products supplied and installed by us will be free from defects for five years. We also guarantee that all installation services will be in full compliance with any relevant codes, regulations and industry standards. This guarantee is transferable to any subsequent property purchaser.
Renovating your existing bathroom with the latest high-quality products is one of the smartest property investments you can make.
Bathrooms and kitchens are the main selling points in a house, so a properly designed and installed bathroom can make a big difference to the value of your property, often dramatically lifting the selling price. However, purchasers have become very conscious of having a modern layout with a high quality finish, so it needs to be done right.
A properly done renovation means that your family can enjoy a beautifully finished contemporary bathroom that’ll last for a long, long time, and that’s a great feeling.
Water damage can be a disaster but it’s also an opportunity to increase the value and enjoyment of your home via a full or partial renovation.
You might need to renovate your bathroom due to medical reasons. We can help with the design and implementation of a disabled bathroom or a ‘wet room’ depending on your specific needs.
A ‘Rule of Thumb’ for a typical bathroom renovation investment is 3-5% of the house value. This is a good guideline but with New Zealand’s rising property market and wide variances across the regions, the only real constant is the price of the bathroom itself.
The price of the fittings and fixtures doesn’t vary much from region to region, while building materials and trade or labour costs don’t fluctuate considerably much either. So it really comes down to investing in a bathroom renovation project that suits the house from both a value and design perspective.
An example would be an average Auckland house that’s valued at around $1,000,000. This would call for an investment range of $30,000 to $50,000 (3-5%).
The same home in Wellington might be valued at $500,000, so the same percentages would place the estimated investment range between $15,000 to $30,000.
Use this 3-5% range (based on home value) as a guideline, and you won’t be over-capitalising, but will still be getting the best value for your money.
*Fluctuations will occur with:
• Tiled showers
• Floor to ceiling tiling
• Expensive bathroom fittings
• Water damage and repairs to existing structures
We like to keep things as easy as possible for you. So once you approve your final plan and budget, we’ll assign a dedicated project manager to oversee every part of the bathroom renovation process including:
The combination of our project management team and our highly skilled tradespeople allow
us to get projects completed with as little inconvenience and disruption as possible to our
customers and their families.
With vinyl or tiled floors, painted walls and an acrylic shower is generally complete within
15 working days.
From floor to ceiling, with custom made shower doors and a more complex layout can usually be done in around 21 working days.
Your project manager will keep you fully up to date at all times, and you’ll never need to be involved with coordinating any of the work.
