Bathroom Renovations

The bathroom has evolved over the last century in New Zealand. Moving away from a small cramped room that included bath, vanity and toilet to bigger spaces that sometimes include all the amenities of shower, bath, vanity and toilet. Most bathroom renovations we have done have involved updating the space with new colours, shower, bath, toilet, vanity, downlights, mirror lights, heated towel rails, new power points and extraction systems.

Sonia & Ben's Bathroom Renovation

Sonia and Ben recently purchased their 1926 rendered plaster villa.

After living there for a short period of time with their large growing family, it was decided a new family bathroom was urgently needed.

The existing bathroom was typical of that error, wooden wall panelling, and a very small 2m x 2m room, consisting of a free standing bath, toilet and vanity. The bath had been updated a decade ago with a wall mounted sliding shower system, that sprayed all over the walls and the wooden floor boards.
