Project Overview

We had the opportunity to renovate the common bathroom for our client Kerry. Their bathroom had seen many years of family use and was much in need of refurbishment. Due to the wear and tear, it had the feeling of an older space that needed a modern touch.

Our project manager, Geoffrey along with his talented team of renovation specialists was more than happy to deliver on Kerry’s needs for a modern look with spaciousness that is long lasting and easy to maintain.

I am extremely impressed with the design and layout of bathrooms. The entire process, from obtaining quotes to receiving the products, was incredibly smooth and efficient. I particularly appreciate how the team helped me manage my budget without compromising on quality. The tapware selected was Reece’s entry-level range, but it still offers excellent design, quality, and affordability. Despite a tight project timeline, the team managed to complete the renovation of one bathroom before moving on to the next, which meant I didn’t have to worry about living arrangements during the process. Geoffrey, in particular, was fantastic to work with. He was patient and understanding, taking the time to assist me in selecting the perfect fittings and tiles. I can confidently say that the experience exceeded my expectations. The professionalism, attention to detail, and exceptional communication made the entire renovation journey enjoyable and stress-free. I am thrilled with the final results and would highly recommend the team to anyone looking to renovate their bathrooms.

Before The Renovation​

The client’s bathroom was showing signs of age. The vanity panels were quite worn out and in need of replacement. The shower, although functional, looked outdated with its curved glass and tight space which Kerry wanted to make bigger so we suggested a rectangle space. 

To do away with the outdated look, we suggested the use of full tiles to give a more contemporary style. 

Along the lines of keeping it stylish, Kerry also wanted to improve the toilet system with a more efficient one. The bathroom lacked proper ventilation, leading to excess moisture. We suggested a good ventilation system that could effectively remove moisture from the wet areas, ensuring a cleaner and healthier environment.

Considering the initial condition of the bathroom and the client’s specific requests, our renovation project aimed to address these issues and create a functional and visually appealing bathroom that would meet the client’s needs and preferences.

Bathroom Materials

The shower area features a 10mm thick tempered retaining glass for the pull-out door, providing both safety and durability. Its sleek and contemporary appearance adds a touch of elegance, while the spacious size of 1.1m x 1.1m ensures a comfortable showering experience.

To ensure efficient drainage, we incorporated the AllProof shower drain system from Reece Plumbing, effectively collecting and removing water to prevent any potential accumulation. Technokolla waterproofing products were used to provide a long-lasting and water-resistant foundation, protecting against moisture and potential damage.
For the walls, a captivating combination of dark and light colours was achieved with Notion Black 600 X 600 wall tiles from Tile Depot. These tiles boast a striking stone-like character with a soft linear grain, adding depth and visual interest. Their R10 anti-slip rating ensures both style and safety.

The bathroom floor features MG Onyx White Polished tiles, also from Tile Depot, which create a luxurious and indulgent atmosphere with their smooth polished finish.

Completing the look, Resene Alabaster interior paint adds a touch of sophistication and serves as a clean backdrop to highlight the architectural features and materials.

Bathroom Vanity & Storage

For efficient storage, we incorporated a 900mm freestanding vanity, the Mia white model from Reece. This vanity not only provides ample storage space but also boasts a stylish design. With its double drawers, it offers convenient organisation and accessibility, allowing for a clutter-free bathroom environment. The Mia white vanity exudes a sense of elegance and modernity, seamlessly blending with the overall aesthetic of the renovated space.

To add a touch of luxury and practicality, we installed the Posh Solus Towel Ladder, an 800mm x 600mm heated towel rail and towel rack. This combination provides both functionality and a visually pleasing element. The heated towel rail ensures warm and cosy towels while the towel rack offers a convenient storage option, keeping towels within easy reach.

To enhance the overall ambiance and functionality of the bathroom, we included the Broadway LED mirror measuring 900mm. This mirror not only brightens the room but also offers excellent visibility for makeup application. Its handy auto-demist function ensures a clear reflection even in steamy conditions, providing convenience and ease of use.

Bathroom Fittings & Fixtures

The selection of fixtures and fittings played a crucial role in transforming the bathroom into a captivating and functional space. To ensure a well-lit and inviting ambiance, we incorporated Phillip LED downlights. These energy-efficient lights provide a warm and pleasant illumination, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the bathroom.

To create a clean and crisp backdrop, Resene Alabaster interior painting was applied. This versatile shade adds a touch of sophistication and allows the architectural features and fittings to stand out.

The tapware selection came from the Reece Base series, offering both functionality and style. These well-crafted fixtures blend seamlessly with the bathroom’s overall design.

For enhanced hygiene and ease of maintenance, the Posh Domaine back-to-wall Rimless toilet from Reece was chosen. This toilet design not only reduces cleaning effort but also ensures a more hygienic experience.

To provide comfort and convenience, the bathroom features a 3-in-1 heater that incorporates lighting, heating, and ventilation functionalities. Additionally, an independent extract fan was installed to fulfil ventilation requirements, catering to both residential and potential rental needs.

Overall outcome

The final outcome of the bathroom renovation project has brought about a remarkable transformation, leaving the client delighted with the results. The new bathroom boasts a completely different style, exuding a fresh and invigorating ambience.

One of the most notable improvements is the increased sense of space. The room now feels significantly larger than before, with more area around the vanity and an expanded shower space. This enhancement not only adds functionality but also creates a more open and inviting atmosphere.

The decision to utilise full wall tiles in the bathroom has not only added a touch of elegance but also made maintenance a breeze. The seamless tiles create a visually cohesive and streamlined look throughout the space. The stunning black and white tile combination has elevated the bathroom’s aesthetic, imparting a sense of sophistication and visual appeal.

Our team completed this project over 8 weeks. All fittings come with the standard warranty provided by Reece, ensuring peace of mind for the client. In addition, the workmanship is backed by a one-year guarantee, and the waterproofing carries a remarkable 15-year warranty.
