Project Overview

Our client's common bathroom and toilet were much in need of renovation due to their outdated appearance and wear and tear from years of use.

This presented an exciting opportunity for transformation and rejuvenation. Despite the ageing appearance and worn vanity panels, we saw immense potential for creating a modern and stylish space. 

We worked closely with our client, Trish from Papakura, to identify her requirements, highlight the opportunities for change and bring her vision to life in under 8 weeks from start to finish. 

I’m thoroughly impressed with the design and layout of our common bathroom and toilet. Working with Ideal Renovation has been a breeze, thanks to their quick responses and efficient handling of quotes and products. They not only met my style and budget requirements but exceeded them. We’re so pleased with their work that we’ve already decided to hire them again for our upcoming kitchen and flooring renovation. Geoffrey, in particular, was incredibly helpful during the bathroom construction, guiding us through minor variations and making sure everything was on track, despite my frequent business trips. Communication was seamless, and the renovation was completed on time. I also appreciate Geoffrey’s keen eye for detail—he quickly identified and fixed a leaking gas cooktop feed pipe, ensuring our safety. Overall, our experience with Ideal Renovation has been exceptional, and I highly recommend their professional and reliable services.

Before The Renovation​


The client expressed their desire for a refreshing change, envisioning a spacious bathroom with a sleek, frameless glass shower enclosure replacing the existing confined shower cavity which was enclosed from 3 sides leading to poor ventilation.

Additionally, they wanted to remove the outdated wallpaper that had started peeling off, allowing us to embrace a fresh canvas. By removing the drop-in bath, we aimed to maximise the available space, ensuring a more open and inviting atmosphere. To enhance comfort, a dedicated seating area within the shower was also part of our design vision.

After The Renovation

Overall look & feel

The renovated bathroom radiates a modern and calming ambiance. The colour scheme, featuring soft greys and neutral tones, creates a serene atmosphere. Stylish tiles with a subtle pattern enrich the look of the walls and floor, lending a contemporary touch. 

The spacious walk-in shower, enclosed by frameless glass, adds an open and inviting feel. A wall-hung vanity with clean lines provides ample storage and enhances the overall aesthetic. Thoughtfully chosen fixtures and fittings seamlessly blend into the design, creating a cohesive and polished look. With its well-planned layout, thoughtful attention to detail, and a focus on both style and functionality, the renovated bathroom now offers a rejuvenating and inviting sanctuary for relaxation and self-care.

In the bathroom renovation, a range of high-quality materials was carefully chosen to achieve a harmonious blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal. The frameless, walk-in shower features a stunning 10mm thick tempered glass, ensuring durability and safety while adding a sleek and modern touch. For effective drainage, the AllProof shower drain system from Reece Plumbing was installed, guaranteeing a clean and hygienic bathroom environment.

The floor and wall tiles boast a matt grey finish with a captivating random pattern, creating a contemporary backdrop that enhances the overall aesthetic. The choice of Dolomite Light Grey matt finish tiles from Tile Depot replicates the exquisite beauty of natural dolomite marble, with its gentle veining and granular patterns. 

Full Aqualine GIB was used for the bathroom and toilet areas, providing a seamless and smooth surface ready for further finishes. Additionally, a new Ceiling GIB was added, improving insulation and acoustics. To ensure long-lasting protection against moisture, a high-quality Technokolla waterproof product was applied. Finally, the Resene Alabaster interior painting adds a clean and timeless touch to the walls.

Bathroom Vanity & Storage

In the renovated bathroom, a thoughtful approach was taken to maximise storage and display areas, ensuring both functionality and aesthetic appeal. The 1000mm wall hung vanity, crafted from Cangas Melamine Charred Oak from Reece, offers ample storage space with its double drawers, while also creating room underneath for a laundry basket.

To add a touch of luxury, a Qubis Towel Ladder measuring 800×600 was installed, serving as a heated towel rail for warmth and comfort. The inclusion of a long Heirloom Aron Glass shelf provides generous space for storing shampoo and conditioner bottles, contributing to an organised and clutter-free environment.

Additionally, the Broadway LED mirror measuring 900mm not only brightens the room but also features a convenient auto demist function, making it easier for makeup application.

These well-chosen storage and display elements combine practicality and style, enhancing the overall functionality and aesthetics of the bathroom.

Bathroom Fittings & Fixtures

In the bathroom, a careful selection of fittings and fixtures was made, considering both functionality and aesthetic appeal. The bathroom is illuminated by the warm glow of Philip LED downlights, casting a soothing ambience throughout the space.

The elegant tapware from the Reece Mizu series not only adds a touch of sophistication but also boasts a remarkable 5-star water rating, promoting sustainability without compromising style. The inclusion of a separated overhead rain shower system, specifically the Nikles Quatre from Reece, creates a luxurious and relaxing shower experience.

The Kako back-to-wall style rimless toilet from Reece not only enhances the overall sleek appearance but also offers easy maintenance and efficient flushing.

Furthermore, the bathroom features a 3-in-1 heater that offers light, heating, and ventilation functions, ensuring comfort and convenience. An independent extract fan has also been installed to fulfill ventilation requirements, catering not only to residential needs but also providing flexibility for potential rental purposes.

Overall outcome

The final outcome of the bathroom renovation exceeded the client’s expectations, delivering a complete transformation and a renewed sense of style. The bathroom now exudes a fresh and inviting atmosphere, with a remarkable increase in perceived space. 

The strategic layout adjustments have resulted in more room around the vanity area and a significantly larger shower space, creating a sense of openness and freedom. The installation of full wall tiles in both the bathroom and toilet not only enhances the aesthetics but also simplifies maintenance, ensuring a pristine appearance for years to come. The inclusion of practical accessories such as a glass shelf and robe hook adds convenience and functionality to the space. 

All fittings installed come with Reece’s standard warranty, providing peace of mind and assurance of their quality. With a one-year workmanship guarantee and a 15-year waterproof warranty, the client can enjoy their newly renovated bathroom with confidence, knowing that it is built to stand the test of time.
