This is a common question asked. It is important to work out a budget that suits not only your financial circumstances but also one that suits the value of your home.
Below are three price brackets to give you an idea of what can be expected:
-Budget: $5,000 - $15,000 for a budget or cosmetic renovation of a smaller bathroom using budget materials & fittings.
-Standard: $15,000 - $30,000 for an average sized mid-range bathroom renovation using mid-range materials and fittings.
-Premium: $30,000+ for a high end, premium or luxury bathroom renovation using top of the range materials and fittings.
A bathroom renovation for around $5,000 is doable, but this will generally be cosmetic or involve swapping out a few select items. Spending up to $15,000 will also involve a few compromises, such as keeping all your existing plumbing & electrical services in place. To stay within this budget you will also need to select tiles under the $30 per square metre range - of which you will find plenty of options that are available in a wide range of colours. You will find you will need to stick to standard back to wall toilet and floor mounted vanity to keep costs down.
