Project Overview

Our client Anna had struggled with the master ensuite bathroom which had suffered serious water damage for about 2 years.

The bathroom was completely unusable as Anna wanted to prevent further damage and gather the budget to renovate.

I am absolutely amazed at the work Jimmy and the Ideal renovations team have done to my bathroom! It was completely destroyed with water damage and we were unable to even use it despite having an ensuite. Within 3 weeks, Jimmy did a magical job of coordinating with the different teams and suppliers to deliver on a completely amazing new bathroom. Everything was delivered as promised within the time and the budget! We are so happy with them that we are now working with Ideal Renovations to do our master bedroom renovation.

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. 


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.
