How Can We Help?

Thank you for contacting us! We will get in touch with you shortly.

What are the most important things I should think about in a bathroom renovation?

There are a few things to think about:

  • Layout – what’s the best use of space and can you make your bathroom ‘flow’ better?
  • Storage – can you find ways to prevent clutter building up with clever storage solutions? 
  • Fixtures and fittings – what do you want your new bathroom to look like? 
  • Ventilation – how are you going to remove moisture and prevent mould buildup?

How do I know if it’s time to renovate my bathroom?

There are a few signs that will tell you that it’s time for a new bathroom setup: 

  1. If your existing bathroom is congested, chaotic and you’re running out of space, this is a clear sign that you need to install a new bathroom.
  2. If your bathroom is more than ten years old with outdated fixtures and appliances, it’s probably time for an upgrade to more modern and efficient components.
  3. If you’re finding leaks in or from your current bathroom, or there’s been a build-up of mould (especially between tiles), it’s time for a refresh.

What’s the benefit of hiring a renovation specialist versus doing the job myself?

When it comes to bathroom makeovers, you have two main options – DIY or professional installation. While it can seem tempting to handle the project yourself, professional installers like Sawtell Bathroom are usually the better option. We have the necessary experience and tools to get the job done right – ensuring you get the bathroom of your dreams, instead of an expensive, stressful mess.

How much do full bathroom renovations cost?  

On average, most full bathroom renovations cost between $27,000 and $35,000. However every bathroom is different: it’s best to give us a call to discuss your renovations.

Is a bathroom renovation worth the cost?

Yes. Typically, a well-done bathroom renovation will boost the value of your property by more than its cost – providing you with an excellent return on your investment. You shouldn’t discount the quality of life improvements, either: a renovation will turn your bathroom into a better looking, more functional space – you may never want to come out of the bathroom again after we’ve finished with it!

Can I move fixtures and fittings (like the bath and toilet) around in the room while planning my bathroom renovation?

Yes! Generally we can move fixtures and fittings around in your new bathroom layout. We can help you design and plan a practical layout for your new bathroom layout.

What do I need to think about when choosing fixtures and fittings for my bathroom renovation?

With a huge range of fixtures and fittings available, it can be difficult to know where to start! Here’s what to think about:

  • Space – do you need a specific type or design of fixture to maximise space and flow in your bathroom?
  • Aesthetics – do you like a particular design style, material, finish and/or colour?
  • Sustainability – are you looking for water or energy efficient fittings, or fittings made from recycled materials?
  • Budget – are your favoured selections affordable?

To discuss fixtures and fittings ideas for your bathroom, give us a call anytime.

How long will my renovation take? 

Yes, we organise everything for you so you don’t need to worry about anything during your renovations.

How long will my renovation take?

Is it worth renovating small bathrooms and/or ensuite bathrooms?

Yes – a small bathroom makeover can be just as effective, if not more, than a renovation of a larger bathroom. Smart alterations can not only make your bathroom look more spacious and modern, but it can also make day-to-day actions like showering, bathing, and washing much easier.

How can I make my bathroom feel more spacious?

There are a number of ways to make a bathroom feel more spacious.

  • Change the layout. Many layouts don’t do their rooms justice: moving your current fixtures and fittings around can quickly create space.
  • Remove large fixtures that don’t get used – for example, replace a corner bath with a smaller tub or remove it entirely if you only use the shower.
  • Choose fixtures like frameless shower screens to enhance the feeling of space.
  • Use light colours – light and neutral hues like white and cream can significantly brighten up a bathroom and make it feel more open. 

To discuss ideas for your bathroom in particular, just give us a call anytime.

Can you renovate other rooms as well?

Yes – we also specialise in laundry renovations as well as bathrooms.

What are the most important things I should think about in a laundry renovation?

There are a few things to think about:

  • The layout of your laundry is key. Think about how you will use the space: if you have a top-loading washing machine, make sure there is enough space around it to fully open the lid. If you have a front-loading washer and dryer, consider stacking them. Ensure that there is enough bench space for sorting and folding laundry.
  • Design and aesthetics: your laundry should be functional but also visually appealing. Choose durable and easy-to-clean materials for surfaces, and consider adding a splashback to protect the walls from water and soap splashes.

What should I think about when buying new appliances for my laundry renovation?

It’s important to consider both size and functionality when choosing appliances. A large family may require a bigger washing machine and a separate dryer, while a couple or individual may opt for a washer-dryer combination to save space.
