Marble has been used by master craftspeople throughout the ages to adorn palace floors, ceilings and walls. Although it was once a show of wealth and power, today marble tile is making its way more and more into everyday homes – bathrooms in particular – all over the world.

There was recently a very good article by Houzz featured in domain.com. You can check out the full article here.

Personally, although marble is an example of supreme elegance, I find it a rather impractical material for bathrooms. Marble is soft and very absorbent, not always ideal in a bathroom! It’s also stains easily and can be readily etched.

Because marble contains minerals, there’s always the risk that its iron content will turn to rust in a bathroom. A beautiful installation can be ruined when the iron buried deep in the marble discolours from humidity and moisture.

I prefer porcelain instead of marble. It looks as good, without the inherent problems of marble.

If you would like further information on bathroom design or bathroom renovation ideas, please do not hesitate to contact us anytime. Even if you want marble…..!!

Looking to update your bathroom on a budget? Rather than a costly renovation, there are some simple ways to makeover your bathroom that won’t break the bank.

Researching cost assessments prior to planning your renovation will help you to move on to getting quotes from bathroom renovation specialists for a more exact figure. Read more!

There are simple steps to take:

  1. Storage – To remove any clutter in your bathroom, you can install some simple floating shelves with baskets and boxes. You can put in extra towel racks and hooks or even a heated towel rack. Decorative containers also look great.
  2. Changing Vanity – This is one of the easiest ways to give your bathroom an upgrade and it can be done in one weekend.  Keeping your vanity in its existing position means you shouldn’t have to spend money on having your plumbing repositioned by a licensed plumber. You just have to decide to replace it.
  3. Old shower screens, recesses and shower curtains can give away the age of a bathroom. Replacing the shower screen is a simple way to revamp the bathroom.
  4. It sounds like a small change, but updating your fittings can make a big difference. When selecting new fittings, think about how they work with the rest of your bathroom features like the tiles and colour scheme.
  5. The right bathroom lighting can change the mood of the space. Observe how much natural light you receive during the day or when you most use the bathroom to determine your lighting needs
  6. If your bathroom mirror is looking a little worn or has suffered water damage (blackening along the bottom of the mirror), it may be time to consider installing a new one. There’s an assortment of shapes and sizes that can dramatically alter the look of your bathroom.
  7. For smaller spaces, using larger tiles can make the room feel bigger and more open. To make the room feel cosy or draw the eye to a specific detail or focal point, smaller, mosaic tiles can do the trick. There are also many tile patterns that can add interest.
  8. Colour selection will go a long way to setting the mood in your bathroom.

The Dos and Don’ts of Bathroom Renovation

Tags

One of the most essential parts of the house is the bathroom. There are many reasons why this is the case. One of which is because it is the only room in the house where one can enjoy total privacy and relaxation. Having a comfortable bathroom is something every home owner desires. However, not all houses have wonderful-looking bathrooms. This is where bathroom renovations and remodelling becomes a necessity.

Bathroom renovation is not just simply changing some of the things you have in your bathroom, such as the sink and toilet bowl. It is so much more. Some bathrooms require more serious renovations than others. The very first thing you need to consider in a renovation is the toilet bowl, sink, and bathtub. These three are the key appliances inside a bathroom. If you feel like any of the three needs replacement, it is best to plan for renovation along with it. Bathroom renovation also includes the replacement of bathroom essentials and the expanding of space. As with any form of renovation, there is always a cost that needs to be settled. Modern bathroom renovations might get costly at times, but you can save lots of money once you know the dos and don’ts of bathroom renovation.

How much does a bathroom renovation cost?

For an estimate figure, you can expect to spend anywhere between $10,000 to $35,000+. The cost can vary depending on the size of your bathroom, the materials used, as well as any labour costs. However, it is possible for a renovation to cost lower around $5000 if you are willing to swap out a few items or keep the refresh a largely cosmetic update. The full article can be found at this site: https://www.homeimprovementpages.com.au/article/how_much_does_bathroom_renovation_cost.

In order to lower your expenses with the bathroom renovation, you must carefully select the items that you need to install or place in your bathroom. This includes the bathtub. Bathtubs are the vital part of a bathroom. A bathroom could not be called as such without a bathtub. Modern bathtubs today are becoming cheaper depending on the size and brand. But there are high-quality bathtubs at affordable costs.

How to choose your freestanding bathtub

One of the first considerations you should have in mind is where the bathtub will be placed. Freestanding doesn’t have to mean ‘in the middle of the room’ and is more describing the fact that it sits separate from walls and other fixtures. To view the full guide, simply visit http://bubblesbathrooms.com.au/blog/bathroom-design/how-to-choose-your-freestanding-bathtub/.

After installing the vital parts of the bathroom, you may start selecting the accessories that you want to add in it. Start with the things that you use in a daily basis before anything else, such as the mirror. If you want to add more decors to the room to create a more soothing ambiance, you can also do so. Adding an appropriate painting in the room might set the right mood for the user.

The Basics of Bathroom Renovation

Tags

Every area of the home requires some grooming in order to look attractive. Some parts are more important than others, such as the bathroom. Almost all home owners would agree that the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. It is where people get to groom themselves. For many, it is a place of relaxation. Bathrooms should be a place where an individual can feel comfort. If your bathroom does not provide you the comfort you need, you might need to consider getting a renovation.

Bathroom renovation is not that easy. It requires some careful planning on the part of the owner. There are several things that you have to consider before getting any sort of renovation or remodelling for your bathroom. First is the space. There must be enough space in your bathroom. If there is not enough, you should consider having a complete renovation instead. It might get costly though but it will be worth it. The next thing you need to plan is the items you install in your bathroom. You should make sure that you are only using high quality sinks and toilet bowls.

Bathroom Renovation Guide

Be it an en suite, guest or family bathroom, good design is paramount as bathrooms can be surprisingly tricky to renovate. They are generally compact spaces that house a number of integrated functions. Renovating a bathroom brings with it a special set of considerations, including waterproofing, water-resistant finishes, load-bearing and structural integrity requirements. The full article can be found at https://www.domain.com.au/advice/bathroom-renovation-guide/.

You will also need to carefully choose the bathroom accessories that you need to place in your bathroom. It is not recommended to put too much items in the bathroom. Instead, only place accessories that are really needed, such as tissue papers, soap containers, and mirrors. Keep it simple as much as possible. If you think a drawer is necessary inside the bathroom, get only a small one.

8 Bathroom Renovation Tips & Ideas

Traditional shower drains have changed dramatically in recent times.  Once a simple hole in the middle of the shower area, the latest stainless-steel floor grates are very effective at draining away the water flow.  Positioned in the centre of the shower recess or down one end, these grates generally run the full width of the shower stall.  A plumber and tiler are required for installation and the floor has to be sloped towards the grate.  Available in various widths, a contemporary shower grate adds an architectural edge at a reasonable price. For the full guide, check out this site.

Although bathroom renovation is not that easy, it is not entirely complicated either. As long as you know the basics of bathroom renovation, you can get a comfortable-looking room in just a few weeks. You will not need an interior designer for this stuff because you can do it on your own. You will just need to employ bathroom renovators if there are things that need to be professionally installed.

Effortless Bathroom Renovation Guide

It is a must for any homeowner to keep each of the rooms in their house clean and organized. No one would want to stay in a room that is not tidy to look at. Many people would probably agree on the fact that the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the home. This is because it is one of the few places wherein you can enjoy your privacy and relax within your desired period of time. However, not all bathrooms can provide this kind of convenience to their users. Some of the reasons are small spaces, discoloured sinks and tubs, and outdated bathroom accessories. If you are one those homeowners who think that their bathrooms aren’t a place for relaxation, you might want to consider renovating your bathroom already.

There are several things that you need to consider when renovating your bathroom. First, you need to expand its space. Tightly spaced bathrooms are not comfortable to stay for many reasons. A complete renovation is necessary and you will need the help of professional renovators. Next, you may need to dispose your outdated bathtub. Modern bathtubs have more functionalities than traditional ones. You can browse a few samples online.

Master Bathroom Renovation: Before + After

The number one change we knew we wanted to make was to enlarge the shower and get rid of the oversized jacuzzi bath.  Aaron refuses to take a bath so that space is totally wasted on him and, while I do enjoy a bath, no amount of bleach could get me used to a jacuzzi bath that other people had used for decades and decades before we moved in.  Is that weird?!  I just feel like with all of the tubes and jets in those things, how can they possibly ever really be clean?  This bath tub is just 60″ wide which is perfect for me and gave us an extra two feet to work with in the shower, which now feels amazingly enormous! This is an article from an expert bathroom renovator and you read it in full here.

Adding more accessories in your bathroom is also an important step in its renovation. After expanding the space, you need to install tools that are needed when taking a bath, such as a shower and a soap container. You will also need a towel handle just outside the shower area. You can even add some furniture inside your bathroom.

Four Small Bathroom Vanities that Make a Big Impact

This first example is a wall-to-wall vanity that’s only three feet wide. It’s one of the smallest vanities we’ve ever installed, but the shaker doors and mid-tone gray wood stain makes it a stylish addition to this washroom. The contemporary vanity is paired with a white granite countertop, and the textured white backsplash tiles add a homey look in this small space. The frameless mirror and the small decorations on the wall all contribute to the character of the space, making this washroom just as comfortable as the rest of the home. See more in this link.

Bathroom renovation is certainly a must for homeowners who are planning to have an upgraded lifestyle. Once you have a more comfortable bathroom, you can start to enjoy your private moments every single day. And with the right bathroom accessories, you will have no other things to worry about anymore.
