Overall bathroom renovation costs will ultimately depend on what to satisfy on your wish list. Consider these 3 common cost factors when planning your bathroom renovation.
1. Tiling to the ceiling or 1200H?
When we tile to the ceiling, we remove all the surface plaster from the walls and the cornice. We then replace the cornice with new and give the cornice and ceiling a fresh coat of Dulux Kitchens and Bathrooms Anti-Mould paint.
Tiling to the ceiling in my opinion looks a lot better. It leaves cleaner lines and we can do a lot more with tile features and design effects.
Average extra cost: $1800 -$3000
2. Vanity – Ready-made or custom-made?
Ready made vanities come in set sizes but are not designed to use up against walls so we have to be careful where we use them. A custom-made vanity is the best way to go and might be what we need but the costs are much higher. What you get though is a beautifully, locally made vanity with a Caesarstone top made just the way you like it.
Average extra cost: $1600-$3500

3.Shower screen. Semi-frameless of Frameless
Semi frameless is what you will find in most new display homes. They look good but have a frame on the sides, floor and top. The glass is also 6mm think.
Frameless is the best. No frame, 10mm thick glass. Easier to clean and looks much better. Highly recommended if you plan on staying in the house for a long time.
Average upgrade cost: $1000.00
