INITIAL PHONE
CONSULTATION

The first step of your bathroom renovations process 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.

IN HOME
CONSULTATION

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.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO RENOVATE?

House Icon

ARE YOU SELLING YOUR HOME?

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.

Coffee Icon

ARE YOU STAYING IN YOUR HOME?

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 Icon

ANY WATER DAMAGE?

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.

First Aid Icon

ANY HEALTH/MEDICAL REASONS?

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.

HOW MUCH SHOULD
YOU INVEST?

A ‘Rule of Thumb’ for typical bathroom renovations is an investment of 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.

AUCKLAND

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%).

WELLINGTON

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.

Small Bathroom $19 to $25k

Medium Bathroom $25k to $35k

Large Bathroom $35k plus

*Fluctuations will occur with:
• Tiled showers
• Floor to ceiling tiling
• Expensive bathroom fittings
• Water damage and repairs to existing structures
