Bathroom renovation ideas wanted

Its time to renovate!  I originally had a figure of $10k budget in my head but after lots of research it seems the average full bathroom reno these days (new tiles, fixtures and fittings) is more like $20k eeeek! This bathroom is 3.6 x 2.1, not including a laundry cupboard behind the brown concertina door, which is approx 1600 x 870.  I would love a freestanding bath in place of the corner spa under the window, with a frameless glass shower wet area. Close off the white door which leads into the kitchen.  There is hall way door access which opens onto the shower, so a cavity sliding door or barn door would be a much better idea.  Cheaper alternatives would be leave all the plumbing where it is, replace the bath, replace the vanity and upgrade the 900x900 corner shower to a walk in 900 x 1200 if there is ensure space?  Any suggestions from you clever people would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @elly1,

 

@EricL will be back on the site this evening, and I trust he would be delighted to make those alterations to his design for you.

Hi @elly1 

 

Here are your revised bathroom drawings. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing your appliances for the bathroom. If you choose to get a bigger bath keep in mind that it will start to encroach onto the space of the laundry area. I don't recommend going any bigger than 1200mm for the size of the vanity because it will start to get in the way of the bathroom door. I'm afraid you can only make the shower deeper but not wider as it will start to push into the space of the vanity.

 

Please have a good look and tell me what you think. If you wish to see it in another configuration, please let me know. The appliances I've used in your sketch are all from Bunnings. make sure to bring this sketch to the store if you wish to have your bathroom quoted.

 

If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know. 

 

Eric

Re: Bathroom renovation ideas wanted

Thanks again Eric!  The only change I am thinking is moving the vanity to the shower wall so the room is more streamlined visually, but again it will be tight on space so not sure that will work.  Great that you pointed out that the bath under the window will not allow for the laundry doors, your assistance is very much appreciated.
