Bathroom renovation: at what cost?
Often people ask, ‘What is the most expensive part of bathroom renovations?’ Although cost can be a major consideration, it is important to realise that a quality, stylish bathroom renovation will increase the value of your property above and beyond the expense and outlay.
This being said, keeping to a bathroom renovation budget is important and is all about thorough planning. We can help by ensuring itemisation of all components of your renovation to ensure you are in control of the cost of your bathroom renovations. As a rough guide, a full bathroom renovation budget will see 40% of your budget spent on fixtures, 35% on tiling, 20% on plumbing and approximately 5% on electrical work. This allows for a 10% buffer for those unexpected costs that may arise along the way.
Bathroom renovations can increase the value of your home
A bathroom renovation is a great way to increase the value of your property. A fresh bathroom renovation is a cost-effective and attractive way to drive interest in your property ahead of a sale and increase your chances of a lucrative and successful sale.
Whether you are looking at a classic style or contemporary design for your bathroom renovation, Patterson Built will work with you directly to create a space to match your vision perfectly.

Your ultimate renovation timeline
Taking the leap and starting your bathroom renovations may seem overwhelming. There are many decisions to be made but remember to take it one step at a time! People often ask us about the order that a bathroom renovation should be completed. We understand the need to have a timeline for such a major project.
Every bathroom renovation is different, but once you understand the steps it takes to do a complete bathroom renovation, the timeline will fall into place for you to work with and around. It is a step-by-step process and will begin with the preparation of detailed plans and council approval, if needed.
Next up is the preparation work of your bathroom redesign. During this step you will decide on colours, tiles and fixtures but will also look at lighting ideas, placement of electrical outlets and appliances. Before any work begins we will work with you to choose your products and fixtures.
Bathroom renovation planning and coordination
We take care of overseeing the entire build and will coordinate all the trades required to complete your bathroom renovation. A successful bathroom renovation will follow a specific timeline in accordance with your specifications. The following is an idea of how your bathroom renovations may proceed:
- Strip out of your existing bathroom;
- Structural or repair work;
- Carpentry modifications where necessary;
- Plumbing “rough in” – pipes and drainage;
- Electrical wiring;
- Tiling preparation of floor and walls;
- Water-proofing membrane;
- Tiling, grouting and painting;
- Vanity and cabinetry installation;
- Plumbing and electrical fit outs;
- Shower screen, mirrors and accessories installation; and
- Final clean and inspection.
So many different trades need to be involved in a bathroom renovation. From tilers to electricians, plumbers to carpenters. The time it will take for your bathroom renovations to be completed will depend on the size of the space and your design. One thing is for sure though, project managing a custom bathroom renovation is not for the faint-hearted. Patterson Built provides excellent project management and trade coordination to ensure your bathroom renovations remain on time without compromising the quality you deserve and expect.
