A bathroom renovation adds value to your property
Generally, about 1% to 1.5% of the value of your house should be spent on your bathroom.
The Housing Industry Association (HIA) estimate that there will be more bathroom renovations than kitchens in 2013/14, with an average value for a bathroom renovation of $15,122 in 2012/13 (across all states and territories. Source HIA/GWA Kitchen and Bathroom Survey 2012/13)
HY’s bathroom renovations range from about $15,000 to $40,000 but we’re willing and able to look at any budget.
Where to start
There are lots of things to consider that help form the best decisions for your budget and property.
- Are you renovating for lifestyle or profit?
- Are you going to replace or revamp?
- Will you use an architect/draftsman?
- Will the layout be in the same position or are you changing the configuration (which would likely involve extra plumbing that needs to be factored into your budget)
- What type of feel are you going for – luxurious, rustic, ‘spa-style’...?
- How will you maximise storage?
- Will you need to move out during the build?

Plan your budget & goals carefully.
It’s so easy to overspend or rush into jobs which will cost you further down the track. Generally it’s a good idea to factor in an extra 10% contingency budget. And think about what is worth paying a little bit more for now which can help to reduce bills and make things more comfortable while you are living there.
We’ll guide you
The beauty of using HY’s is that we have the best renovation specialists to hand and take the hassle out of all the different options and decision-making, because we help guide you.
The first thing we do is to book a consultation with you, so that you can describe the vision you have for your renovation.
Planning and design
At your consultation, we’ll review and measure up the space and discuss design options such as layout, cabinetry, flooring, lighting, plumbing, fittings and finishes.
From here we guide you as to the best solution for your property’s structure, your lifestyle and your budget.
