GET THE LOOKWith Smith & Sons Renovations & Extensions

Create a beautiful sanctuary in your home and increase the resale value of your property at the same time.

If a new bathroom is high on your wish list it’s time to get started thinking about your bathroom design and develop an idea of what you can achieve on your budget.


Firstly, you’ll want to narrow down the overall style of your new bathroom—often this will be influenced by the look and feel of your home.

Freshen Up Your Bathroom

Heritage Villa

If you own a period villa or weatherboard cottage you might want to modernise your bathroom whilst staying true to the style of the home. A heritage style bathroom can have all the contemporary conveniences coupled with the charm of yesteryear.

Think clawfoot tubs, ornate mirrors, and glass chandeliers. You could source antiques or restore furniture and repurpose to create a vanity unit or dresser.

The Next StepChoosing Your Fixtures

There is a wide range of vanities on the market, your selection will depend on your budget and the space available. Choose between a standard factory-made unit or a more expensive custom-designed unit and determine whether you have the space for a single or double vanity.

For elegant and opulent bathrooms a rain head shower is a great choice—to make things more practical for cleaning you could opt for a rain-head shower with a removable mixer.

Depending on the space you have to work with you might decide on a double shower where the best solution is often a walk-in wet room design which provides maximum space.

Then Decide On Your Layout

Bathrooms are often small spaces so you’ll need to ensure you’re able to open and close all of the doors and have enough room to get changed—often while sharing the space with a partner.

For those on a strict budget, simply changing out the bathroom fixtures without changing the layout will be the most cost-effective solution. In very small spaces, installing all of the fixtures along one wall can keep plumbing costs to a minimum.

If you need to create more space you might want to remove a wall or join an existing separate toilet into the main family bathroom. This type of renovation work will achieve the layout that you dream of but takes a little more time as it requires council consent. You’ll also need to factor in increases in plumbing costs if you want to change up the layout and add or relocate fixtures.

Think AboutYour Materials & Features

Whether you want to replace tired old fixtures for a fresh new look; improve functionality and add a touch of luxury; or just wish to increase the value of your investment—when done correctly, a bathroom renovation can provide a wonderful benefit to your lifestyle.
