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 get an idea of what you can achieve for different budgets.


Firstly, you’ll want to choose the overall style of the bathroom that you wish to achieve, often this will be a style that will marry in and suit 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 complete the look of the home with a heritage style bathroom that oozes 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 and depending on your budget and available space, you can decide whether you want a standard factory-made unit or a more expensive custom design unit and whether you would prefer 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 space, you might decide on a double shower where the best solution is often a walk-in wet room style shower which provides maximum space.

Then Decide On Your Layout

Bathrooms are often small spaces and you’ll need to think about being able to open and close all of the doors and having enough room to be able to get changed in and out of your clothes.

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 the 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 where you want to change up the layout and put new fixtures in new places.

Think AboutYour Materials & Features

Whether you’re after a fresh new look, want to replace tired old fixtures, upgrade to a more functional or more luxurious space, or just wish to increase the value of your investment—when done correctly, this can be a fantastic benefit to your home.
