Project Overview

Our client's common bathroom, which had been in use for many years, had begun to show signs of ageing and wear and tear.

It was clear that a renovation was needed to restore the bathroom to its former glory. Our co-founder Jimmy and his team were delighted to deliver.

I was thoroughly impressed with the design and layout of my downstairs bathroom. Ideal Renovation was incredibly easy to work with and had quick turnaround times on both quotes and products. I provided them with a specific style and budget, and they delivered on both fronts. As a “gents bathroom,” the final result exceeded my expectations. I was so pleased with their work that I have already hired them to renovate my upstairs “ladies bathroom,” which is currently underway. I am confident that the outcome will be equally amazing. Jimmy, in particular, was extremely helpful in guiding me through the product selection process and ensured that I stayed within my budget. I would highly recommend Ideal Renovation to anyone looking for a team that provides excellent design and layout solutions.

Before The Renovation​

We had to renovate the entire bathroom including worn and torn vanity panels and a dated, framed shower. Additionally, the drop-in bathtub had begun to leak, requiring an upgrade. 

Although the bathroom had an overall 1970’s style, our client wanted to incorporate a featured tile wall to give it a modern touch. Additionally, he also wanted more space by installing a wall hung vanity. Our team was happy to deliver on our client’s expectations. 

After The Renovation

Overall look & feel

The overall look and feel of the bathroom is one of modern sophistication and practicality. With its fresh and stylish tilework in shades of grey and white, the bathroom strikes a perfect balance between comfort and opulence. 

Additionally, the renovation has made the bathroom more spacious and functional, making it easier and more enjoyable to use. 

Overall, the client is extremely pleased with the outcome of the project and the improved functionality and aesthetics of their newly renovated bathroom.

Materials

The bathroom renovation project utilised high-quality materials to achieve a modern and stylish look. The shower area features a diamond shape made of 10mm tempered glass, with the AllProof shower drain system from Reece Plumbing. 

For the floor and walls, a durable and easy-to-clean matt grey tile was used, with a subway tile as a feature in the wet area. The bathroom also features full Aqualine GIB and new ceiling GIB, along with the use of Technokolla waterproof products.

The Kashmir series of stone effect ceramic tiles were chosen for their practicality, with a matt surface suitable for everyday use on both floors and walls. Additionally, the Kaleido series offers a timeless and elegant Italian design, with the Kaleido Grigio 450x450mm tiles used in a dark grey charcoal shade suitable for both floors and walls. The wet area is adorned with classic white wall tiles, featuring a glossy finish and made of glazed ceramic.

Bathroom Vanity & Storage

The 600mm wall hung vanity featured double drawers, providing ample storage space for toiletries and other bathroom essentials. The design also created additional space underneath the vanity for a laundry basket, helping to keep the bathroom neat and tidy. 

To further enhance the functionality of the space, we added the Heirloom Centro Double towel rail, measuring 600mm in length. This sleek and stylish accessory not only provided a convenient place to hang towels but also added a touch of elegance to the overall design.

Bathroom Fittings & Fixtures

For the bathroom fixtures, fittings, and appliances, we selected high-quality products that would enhance the functionality and style of the space. We installed Phillip LED downlights to provide ample lighting and create a warm, inviting atmosphere. To add a touch of elegance, we used Resene Alabaster interior paint for the walls. For the floor and wall tiles, we chose the Kashmir Grey Matt 45 x 45 and Kaleido Grigio Natural 450 x 450, respectively, from Tile Depot. In the wet area, we used the City White Gloss 100 x 300 subway tile to give the space a clean, modern look. 

The tapware we used was from Englefield and has a 5-star water rating. The Sorrento II 1670mm bath tub, also from Englefield, was installed for the client’s comfort and relaxation. We also re-installed the rimless side pipe toilet. 

To ensure maximum comfort during colder months, we installed a 3-in-1 heater that provides lighting, heating, and ventilation. Finally, we installed a Sweet Series shower slider with an overhead rain system and an adjustable rain shower head for a luxurious and indulgent shower experience.

Overall outcome

Our client was extremely satisfied with the final outcome of the bathroom renovation project which was completed in 3 and a half weeks. The new bathroom design provided a fresh, modern feeling, which was especially evident in the beautiful tile work. The tiles used throughout the bathroom, including the Kashmir and Kaleido series, were designed to withstand everyday use and were easy to clean. The new fixtures and fittings, including the Englefield tapware and Sorrento II bathtub, provided both style and functionality. All fittings come with the Englefield standard warranty. 

Our workmanship has a 2 years guarantee and waterproofing has a 15 years warranty. With all fittings and workmanship guaranteed, our client could enjoy their newly renovated bathroom with peace of mind.
