Whether you’re planning your dream bathroom renovation or just thinking of making a few changes, it all begins with your budget. With so many design and style choices available, knowing what you want and what you want to spend will help with making all those big decisions. It will also help with making the small decisions too.
“Don’t just guess what things will cost. Run your budget past the experts, including your tradies. That way, you can be sure you know what you’ll be up for and there is less chance of costs getting out of hand.”

You know what you want your finished bathroom renovation to look like, and while you might feel inclined to dive in, it pays to budget time in your schedule upfront, to pause… and to understand the costs of bringing that dream to life.
Will your renovated bathroom have a freestanding bath or the more affordable back-to-wall option? It might not be either if you haven’t budgeted for them! A heated towel rail might be a must, but does your budget allow for the expense of bringing in an electrician?
You need to get detailed with your budget. Get quotes and itemise the cost of every item before you pick up that sledgehammer. Our showroom consultants can help you to seek the level of detail you need for your budget.
Plus, you must budget for unexpected costs that will likely occur, just because they always do.
As a guide, if you’re planning a low-cost bathroom, plan to spend $5,000 to $15,000. Standard bathrooms generally come in at $15,000 to $30,000. If you want the world, then $30,000+ is what you’ll need.
The total cost of your renovation will depend on how much work you plan to do. Changing tapware and bathroom accessories will obviously cost a whole lot less than a full refit. When setting your budget, don’t lose sight of the reasons for the renovation. Are you dressing things up to improve

Can I improve my dated bathroom on a budget of $5000?
Yes. Absolutely. If everything in your bathroom is functioning perfectly well and it’s just about looks, new taps and a new vanity, and possibly even a new toilet will fit into your budget, and can make a world of difference to how your bathroom looks.
How do I choose a look that I won’t need to budget to change anytime soon?
Keep things simple and choose traditional styles over on-trend pieces. This decision will probably be easier on your budget now and will keep your ‘look’ current for longer.
How long will I wait if a product is out of stock?
It depends on the product and whether it’s a standard line or made to order. However, our established relationships with leading Australian and global suppliers means it happens in the shortest possible time. For example, Raymor and Oliveri products are generally delivered within 3 days (metro) or 7 days (regional) as part of our Showroom Customer Service promises.
