Bathroom Renovations

How much does a bathroom renovation cost?

House Rules winners Aaron and Daniella are flipping houses and counting costs

Now flipping houses for profit, we ask the Gold Coast glamour couple about costs, planning and the tricks they’ve learned along the way.

With no less than four brand new bathroom renovations under their belt in their latest house flip, House Rules 2017 winners Aaron and Daniella have now formed a company flipping houses. The dynamic husband and wife duo – buy homes in need of serious TLC, then redesign, renovate and sell them at a profit.

They dish the dirt on how much you can expect to pay for a small bathroom renovation.

“With the bathrooms you need to be very detailed in what you want,” says Daniella. “Make a plan and stick to it.” undefined

Daniella suggests the average bathroom is around 10 thousand dollars to renovate, “So a main bathroom would look something like this:”

$2000 Tiles

$350 Waterproofing

$850 Bath

$250 Shower Screen

$900 Vanity

$250 Taps, Mixers, Wastes

$150 Accessories (towel rails and hooks, etc.)

$200 Lights and Exhaust Fan

$500 Electrician

$1350 Plumber

$600 Carpenter

$600 Plasterer

$2000 Tiler

Tips and Tricks:

  • Make a set of design rules and stick to them. Approach each room individually and make it fit your house design rules.

  • When tiling, always stick to the 60:30:10 rule – which means 60% of the room to be done in a main colour tile (e.g. white wall tile), 30% of the room to be done in a colour that complements the main colour tile (e.g. a concrete floor tile), and 10% feature tile. This is the best way to balance a colour palette.

  • Try and work with the layout you have, it can save you big dollars, and shop smart when it comes to budget and style, always shop around for the best price.
