Choose your bathroom renovation company for their brains
Most house owners know that bathroom renovation costs can get thoroughly out of hand. One minute you’re thinking $15k might do the job; the next you’re off to the bank for a loan, because the estimate’s $40k.
Bathrooms are famously expensive to renovate because they involve so many trades people – builder, plumber, drainlayer, waterproofer, cabinet maker, electrician, tiler and painter. So compared to all the other rooms in your home, your bathroom can cost the most per square meter.
While it’s not smart to go for the cheapest bathroom renovation in Auckland (because cheap can definitely mean shonky), it’s a good idea to look for a company that has decades of experience and a lifetime of great bathroom renovation ideas. In the bathroom makeover world, intelligent solutions are really important.
Common bathroom problems solved
There honestly isn’t a problem you can throw at us that we haven’t solved before. For instance, we often get enquiries about how to fix a leaking shower without removing tiles. Jubilee Bathrooms has a clever fix for this problem involving epoxy grout.
Another common challenge is creating an ensuite bathroom out of nothing (or next to nothing). Because one of our foundation skills is building, we know how to steal space from another room, wardrobe or hallway to build the ensuite of your dreams.
Storage is also a problem that we’re really good at solving. If you’re renovating a family bathroom, you’ll need enough drawers, shelves and cupboards for everyone’s stuff. That can mean adding specific storage units, hair tool organisers, built in shower storage and using tricks like mirror cabinets.
And a classic problem for old Auckland houses is the bathroom that’s built on the site of an ancient laundry room or outside toilet. You can guarantee that the floor won’t be flat, the walls won’t be straight and the toilet will probably have an old-fashioned soil pipe with a concrete collar. All of these challenges have been seen and solved before by the Jubilee team.
Saving your bathroom budget however we can
The Jubilee Bathrooms team also knows how to save you money on your bathroom rebuild and we can do it in ways that won’t affect the quality of the outcome. For example, we have contacts within the plumbing and bathroom furniture business that allow us to source products for less. We also know how to steer you towards quality tapware, bathroom heaters and towel racks that won’t cost the earth.
The good thing about our advice for bathroom renovations is that it can help you to spend the money on your big bathroom remodel ideas, like a shower that’s better than any hotel you’ve ever stayed in or a bath that’s straight from Las Vegas. Making your bathroom look a million bucks can be as simple as having one stand-out feature, such as a magnificent vanity, a splashback of image glass, fantastic feature tiling or an exquisite antique wooden floor.
