As Registered Builders, we have a wealth of experience in undertaking building inspections that invariably highlight potential problems in bathrooms and wet areas in homes. We can provide you with cost effective solutions to address any issues and simply refresh your bathroom, or completely remodel your bathroom.
Planning & design
Before any works commence, one of the most important areas to address is a review of any latent moisture issues present, that may cause future damage to any new finishes installed. This approach may identify any underlying current issues your bathroom may have before spending thousands of dollars.
Once we have completed our inspection, we provide designs and plans to translate your ideas into reality.
We are able to assist in selections to suit your budget, style and preferences, and are pleased to offer Interior Design and Styling Services to ensure your new bathroom is functional and beautiful.
To help you plan your bathroom renovation, there are a lot of things for you to consider;
Keep what you like – Before your bathroom renovations look at the things you like in your bathroom. Make sure you retain the features/function you enjoy. What you don’t touch, won’t cost you anything!
Atrium – A bathroom with natural light and a few plants throughout can create a stunning effect, turning a purely functional room into a space that allows reflection upon your day. After-all, you start and finish you day in your bathroom, why not make it special?
Bath – What’s the purpose of the room? Do you have young kids or do you like a good long soak at the end of the day? Many opt for a shower-over-bath set up to offer flexibility in their wet areas. You can then choose from acrylic, ceramic or cast iron baths depending on the budget and look of your bathroom design.
Cabinetry – There are so many choices for your bathroom cabinetry. Go2 Homes can create custom cabinetry with stone bench-tops or you can go for standard laminated tops with vanities in plain white with a moulded basin.
Design – If you’re going to spend thousands of dollars on your bathroom renovation, why not get it right? Spending a little time and budget on your bathroom design will dramatically improve both your bathroom’s look and functionality. In fact, this process helps reduce costs by doing it right first time. You can even nominate a budget and then get the best possible outcome because you’re drawing upon expert knowledge.
Exhaust – Ensuring good quality ventilation not only protects the room from moisture and odours, it also provides for lighting and heating if you consider a ceiling mounted three-in-one unit.
Family bathroom or ensuite – When planning your bathroom design ask, who’s going to use the bathroom? Is it a family bathroom where light colours will help you keep it clean or an ensuite where serene colours and spaces can help you retreat from the rest of the world?
Grout & Tiles – The tiles and grout you choose with have a dramatic effect on your bathroom’s appearance. Darker tiles with a larger format will make the room smaller, while the grout colour also impacts your bathroom renovation’s look.
Hobs - Or hob-less? Frameless shower-screens with a walk in tile floor (with no hob) create a seamless and modern bathroom design. For a little extra, it adds a more modern touch to your bathroom renovation.
Insurances – Do the people doing the work have the right insurances? Did you know if the value of the work exceeds $12,000 you’re entitled to Home Warranty Insurance? This will protect you should anything go wrong with your bathroom in the future (usually waterproofing is the riskiest part).
Only a Registered Builder can provide Home Warranty Insurance so always ask to see proof of registration and the practitioner’s letter of insurance eligibility. If they can’t provide this, then they’re probably not registered and operating illegally leaving you open to all sorts of risks should the work fail in the future.
Just relax – Once you’re bathroom renovations complete, remember to turn off the phone, put on your favourite music and relax!
