Before The Renovation​

Anna needed a complete bathroom renovation with full damage repair which had creeped into the cabinets, slider, master bedroom wall and garage wall. Additionally, she also wanted maximum ventilation in a fully tiled bathroom with more sunlight exposure. 

Our co-founder Jimmy and his team jumped in to the rescue. Read on to find out how we revived Anna’s ensuite bathroom. 

After The Renovation

Overall look & feel

We completely revamped the entire bathroom which was run-down, damaged and much in need of repair. The new bathroom has shades of white and grey shown off from the tiled walls and flooring. We installed sleek and elegant fittings to complete the look with luxury and quality. The bathroom is now dry, well-lit, easy to maintain and a pleasure to use. 

Materials - Flooring

For the flooring and walls, we used 600mm x 600mm size tiles of the Carrara series from Value Tiles & Flooring. These bigger sized tiles have a beautiful abstract pattern to provide a classy look of continuity and add brightness to the space.

Materials - Shower & Vanity

The shower cabin has 10mm thickness tempered glass and stainless steel rollers – allowing water to be easily cleaned after the shower. It also has an easy clean drain to add to the effortless maintenance. We also entirely replaced the framing in the wall cavity due to water damage. Now the bathroom has a fresher brand new look while making the overall wall structure safer. The vanity is a Cork Shadow 900mm freestanding vanity with single basin.

We placed a full Aqualine GIB that has a water resistant core to prevent steam and moisture penetration and is New Zealand’s number 1 tiling substrate used in bathrooms. Thicker GIB is used on ceilings for a better quality finish, especially where wet and humid conditions mean ceiling sag can occur. 

Storage

For the vanity, we went with a freestanding one which provides more space and also removes the need to clean underneath since it is fully sealed to the flooring tiles. This prevents water and dust going underneath making it more hygienic. The vanity is compartmentalized with drawers and cabinets for the storage of toiletries and personal items.  

Fittings & Fixtures

We installed a rimless toilet system which changes the way water enters the bowl during flushing. This produces a quieter and cleaner flush every time – making it easier to clean and long lasting. It also uses less water with every flush which is an added bonus!

Philip LED downlights illuminate the bathroom brightly while also adding to power savings. It also highlights the Dulux paint used throughout the interiors. 

The tapware and accessories are chrome coloured to align with the theme. And the look is complete with a LED mirror light from Lighting Plus.

Overall outcome

Our client was delighted with the outcome. They not only received a brand new ensuite that they can use again but all the water damaged areas are now fixed! With a new GIB, new skirtings and new paint – the bathroom is definitely prepared to last for years for come. 

The bathroom has our standard bathroom renovation workmanship guarantee of 2 years. All the fittings come with a supplier warranty of 5 years and the waterproofing has a 15 year warranty.

Epsom Bathroom

Project Overview

Our client in Epsom wanted to renovate all 3 bathrooms in their lovely home.

They have a master en-suite bathroom, a second bathroom and a guest bathroom with toilet and shower which all needed a stylish makeover. While keeping them aligned in style and theme, we decided to give them each a unique look and functionality of their own. Team Ideal Renovations worked with their client to deliver 3 unique designs which they loved and we got started on delivering!

Premium bathroom style

We kept all 3 bathrooms looking modern and stylish by using 600mm * 600mm tiles with a white marble finish. To compliment the pristine look of white, we used Ash coloured Oak wood in our design and chose sleek and modern fittings.

We fitted the tiles with a uniquely random style which highlights the abstract designs on the tiles, making the entire wall look artistic and enchanting. We chose to use these tiles because they resist wear from daily use and are moisture resistant making them durable for years to come.

Keeping in mind the daily use and functionality of the bathrooms, we ensured they are all low-maintenance with exposed surfaces that are easy to reach and clean.

Bath & Shower cabins

For the master bathroom, our client wanted a freestanding bath as opposed to a drop in bathtub. We cleverly made use of the space by choosing to fit a freestanding bath with two long edges that go hard up against the wall. This ensures no water drips and spills behind the bath – removing the need to worry about a wet mess. Easy maintenance with luxury soaks anytime!

For the second bathroom, we placed a luxuriously large 1700mm x 1100 mm shower cabin with frameless shower glass and doors. This gives it a sleek and seamless look of pure opulence and size. They resist corrosion as there is no use of metal and are also mould-resistant and easy to clean as lesser hardware prevents water build up.

In the guest bathroom, we installed a diamond shaped tiled shower cabin. The beauty of a diamond shaped shower stall is not just in its unique shape but in the way it utilises a smaller space perfectly. The door opens inwards between two retaining glass on the sides offering much better use of space than a pull out shower door.

Bathroom Fittings

For the bathrooms we installed premium Hansgrohe and Caroma fittings which are elegant yet functional with space and maintenance.

The countertop basin style is the best of both worlds. Modern and stylish compared to traditional sinks and they allow you to have more space and ease-of-maintenance than pedestal or wall mounted sinks. The minimal design with the practicality and versatility they offer makes them a perfect choice for modern bathrooms.

The mirrors have an auto-demist function keeping them clean and crystal clear of finger marks and smudges. They also have the option to switch between warm and cold colours along with a power saving mode. In the master bathroom we installed a round shaped cosmetic mirror which is very popular with the ladies. The mirrors in the other bathrooms also had rounded edges with LED lighting.

We also installed ash oak cabinets to provide plenty of storage under the vanity. The colour scheme is sophisticated while supplementing the look of the white marble tiles and flooring.

Our client loved their 3 bathrooms and we really enjoyed delivering this project for them. We will be enjoying the unique spaces and benefits for years to come.
