Brisbane Bathroom Renovations -Frequently Asked Questions

Planning a Brisbane bathroom renovation? Read this first

When you’re looking at your tired old bathroom and considering a Brisbane bathroom renovation, you’ve probably got a head full of questions. While we can’t read your mind, we’ve been doing Brisbane bathroom designs for a few years now and have a good idea about what you might be thinking.

Knowing answers to the following questions will help get your Brisbane bathroom renovation off to a good start.

1. Where to begin?

All Brisbane bathroom designs start with an idea. Consider what you need in your bathroom and how you want to change it around. Designing a beautiful yet functional bathroom isn’t the easiest job, so if you feel overwhelmed or wonder whether your ideas are possible, get in touch with the bathroom professionals at Relianz. We can go through your ideas with you and come up with a design you will love.

2. Do I need council approval?

Whether you will need to consult with your local council or not for your Brisbane bathroom renovation will depend on your goals. If you are swapping out a toilet or basin for a new one, then no, you won’t need to get the council involved.

However, if you are planning a complete overhaul and need plumbing relocated or waterproofing installed, then it’s likely you will need your local council to have a peek at your plans to make sure it’s all up to code. Naturally, as qualified Brisbane bathroom renovators, we understand what you can’t do without council approval and can help the process along.

3. Do I need to replace everything?

The short answer to this is no, not if you don’t want to. If you like your bathtub exactly where it is, then keep it. If you have a soft spot for your old basin but would like new cabinets, we can make that work as well. We also have ways and means to make an old tub or basin look new so that you can enjoy them for a few more years.

4. Should I go all out on a remodel?

It’s easy to be swayed by the glamorous bathroom designs you see on TV remodelling shows. Sure, that Jacuzzi looks great as you imagine long, luxurious soaks on a Saturday night, but how often do you think you will use it? Be realistic. Most people we know lead busy lives, and very few have time to soak for hours while sipping wine. Plan your bathroom around your needs and the amount of space you have available. Doing this will help you control costs and save money, maybe even enough for a family holiday away.

5. How much value will a Brisbane bathroom renovation add to my home?

We can’t give you an exact figure, but in general, a Brisbane bathroom renovation will add more value to your home than what you spend. If you’re planning on selling, a newly renovated bathroom will significantly increase the appeal of your property. You do need to be careful about controlling the budget, as it can be easy to overcapitalize (spend more than you can get back) in some areas.

We can help you create a bathroom that will improve your equity by taking the location and value of your home into account.

The above are just a few of the questions most of our clients find themselves considering, but we know you probably have more of your own. Find the answer to all your Brisbane bathroom renovation questions by calling Relianz today.
