A bathroom renovation can make your home a much more enjoyable place to live and can be one of the best places to add value. Make sure you start off on the right foot by ensuring you are using a professional and experienced company.
We all know that your bathroom is one of the most important parts of your home, and is essential for day to day life. Bathroom renovations are also one of the more difficult and complex projects to manage due to the multiple trades required; plumber, tiler, electrician just to name a few.
Butterfield Home Renovations is a family business with over 40 years of experience in Christchurch and we have renovated bathrooms for much of that time. Our time in the game means that we have experience in all types of bathroom renovations and we will be able to complete your project with as small an impact that is possible on you and your family.
We classify bathroom renovations into three broad categories (Essential, Premium and Luxury) which depend on a number of factors including your budget, the space you have available and the end look you are after.
Budget: $ 9k – 12k
These renovations are generally about refreshing the look of a bathroom and maximising its functionality. Often space is at a premium so it is about ensuring each feature and item is well thought out and suitable for the bathroom’s overall design.
Budget is often a constraining factor, but our relationship with our Christchurch based supplier means that you will often get better quality fittings and fixtures than you imagined.
Check out our Guides and Advice page for help in planning your bathroom renovation. It contains practical advice such as how to make the most of a small space and how to select your bathroom fittings.
Budget: $ 15k – 25k +
The Premium Bathroom renovation is the next step along in both budget and design and there is often a vision or design concept involved.
This type of renovation will include the introduction of tiling to floors and some or all of the walls.
It will also allow for the introduction of a number of specialised items, such as standalone baths (spa baths), designer fittings and lighting or custom walk in showers.
Budget: $ 30k +
A Luxury Bathroom renovation is often architecturally designed with specialised items and extensive tiling using imported tiles or exclusive materials such as stone and marble, along with underfloor heating.
It will include the highest quality of fixtures with options for one off custom items such as vanity's, multi head/occupancy showers and, if you so desire, the inclusion of multimedia- speakers
If you are just starting with the planning process or want to make sure that you have everything covered, check out our resource for bathroom design. In our Advice Guide we look at all the major issues that should be considered together with the items that need to be included in a modern bathroom design. You can also download checklists and template on our Planning Tools and Checklists page. These tools include a bathroom template planner so you can trial a number of different arrangements with a variety of fixture sizes.
