Bathroom Transformations

If your bathroom is starting to feel outdated and is making you more stressed than relaxed, it might be time to look into a bathroom renovation.

Once you decide to renovate your bathroom, it can be a daunting process. It is normal to feel both excited and overwhelmed as it is something you want to get right the first time.

You might have the vision, but partnering with an experienced renovation company will give you the know-how. See below for an example of how WA Assett can transform your bathroom.

Maybe you are ready to take the plunge and start your bathroom renovation or perhaps you want to learn more about the process. Either way, our team are here to help

Step one: Discuss your ideas

The first step is to brainstorm your ideas and create a checklist of what you want in your dream bathroom. You may find it useful to browse the internet and put together an inspiration board.

When you’re ready, talk to us about your goals and we will help bring them to life. If you choose WA Assett, you will work closely with an industry expert who can provide you with expert bathroom renovation ideas. We aren’t just here to make a quick sale as we want you to enjoy your renovated bathroom for many years to come. 

We will listen to your ideas and give you advice based on knowledge and experience. By understanding what you can and can’t do, we will get it right from the start.

Step two: Understand the space

Once you have thought about your wishlist, it is time to think about the space you have to work with, as well as any extra ‘wow factors’ you would like.

Here is a checklist of questions your contractor may ask you before giving you a quote and asking you to commit to a budget:

  • What type of fittings and fixtures do you find most appealing?
  • What types of materials would you like to use?
  • What is the size of your bathroom?
  • Does your bathroom require any major layout changes?
  • Are there any underlying issues you may be aware of?

Step three: Set your budget

No two bathroom renovations are ever the same, and this means the cost can vary between projects. The room size, layout, fixtures, and duration can all impact the cost of renovating your bathroom.

It is important to be realistic. For example, you may want heated floors and a marble double vanity. These types of features will come at a higher price.

There may be ways that we can give you the look and feel that you want, with more affordable alternatives. We will tell you where to spend and where you can save. 

Your bathroom renovation team will be able to give you a clear estimate and work with you to create a design that suits both your budget and lifestyle requirements. 

Remember, there may be underlying and unexpected issues that need to be resolved. For example, there could be leaks, faulty wiring, structural issues, or mould hidden beneath the surface. It is always recommended you set aside an extra 10% of the total cost, just in case.

Step four: Sign the contract

At this stage, you might have already met with WA Assett. You may have also shopped around for different quotes. You should know what you want and the type of money that you are willing to spend to get it.

You should choose a bathroom renovation company you feel comfortable with and someone who has a good reputation in the community. The process should be transparent, professional and friendly, with quality results that speak for themselves.

The right renovation company will have a dedicated team, working seamlessly together for an efficient timeline. A project manager will oversee the renovation and be your first point of contact for any questions and updates. At WA Assett, this is an area we excel in. We are in control of our schedules and can book tradespeople in advance, avoiding lengthy delays.

Once you have decided to work with us and we understand your requirements, we will give you the pricing estimate. Then it’s time to sign the contract and prepare for your new bathroom.
