Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @jesshard555. We're happy to have you join us and look forward to seeing how your can transform your bathroom and laundry. 

 

As you are browsing the Bunnings website, you will find many items can be purchased online and delivered to your home. You might also choose to instead order them online and collect them at your local store (Click and Collect). Alternatively, for special items you can contact your store's Special Orders desk to assist with an order. 

 

For how many tiles you need, could you please share a layout and/or photos of your bathroom, along with a link to the tiles you have chosen? I'm sure our helpful members like @redracer01 and @MitchellMc will be more than happy to assist. 

 

Thanks,

Re: How to go about renovating bathroom/laundry?

Hi @jesshard555,

 

If you have a look at our wall tiles, you'll see their description provides both a square meter cost and if sold in a carton how many square meters it covers. Work out your room's square meterage to see how many cartons you'll need. The bathroom walls are around 22.54 meters squared overall and you can then minus doorways and windows to get closer to the mark. You can always return unused tile cartons after you finish the project. For the laundry floor, you'd need 10 square meters of tiles.

 

You might like to take a look through our range of Kaboodle cabinetry. You'll find plenty of cabinetry and benchtops to suit your needs.

 

If you can link me to the tiles you liked, I can let you know how many cartons you'll need.

 

Mitchell

Re: How to go about renovating bathroom/laundry?

@jesshard555 are you wanting to do this yourself? I’m guessing likely “yes” if you live remotely.

1. Floor Tiles:

Can you tell us what the substrate is? From my experience, the larger the tile, the more likely it is to be slightly curved. Difficult for a newbie to lay. Difficult to cut (you need to use the appropriate cutting disc on an angle grinder). Smaller tiles don’t present half of the problems.

2. Wall Tiles

From your Laundry photo, it looks like you’ve got some sort of panelling on the wall, possible cement sheet (finishing strips on the joins). How old is your place, any chance that’s asbestos sheeting? I see the bathroom looks like some sort of panel/sheet as well. Tiling painted walls needs some thought when choosing a tiling adhesive, many of them will not stick to a painted surface. Some research for you :smile:

3. Cabinetry

Definitely Kaboodle cupboards available for the kitchen. Lots of different sizes to help you get a good fit for your space. Personally I find their online kitchen design tool a pain, but if you nail down your dimensions and post them, @redracer01 or @MitchellMc could offer some suggestions. Laundry cupboards, there’s a choice of Kaboodle or Bedford, depending on what you want to do :smile:

 

So more information needed, cheers Deb :smile:

Re: How to go about renovating bathroom/laundry?

Hello @jesshard555 

 

That is a generous shower area, I just have a few questions before making recommendations.

 

1. Are you just tiling the floor or are you tiling the wall as well?

2. Will you be relining the walls with new aqualine gibrock?

3. Are we keeping the bath?

4. Would it be ok to move the vanity towards the right hand wall near the door and away from the window?

5. Are you doing a full gut out or partial reno?

 

Cheers,

Red

 

p.s.

How to calculate how for tiling quantity.

 

If the floor area is 2130 W and is 2800 L multiply these two amounts to get your floor area in square meters.

 

2.130 x 2.800 = 5.964 ( lets round it up to 6 square meters to simplify )

 

6 meters divided by the coverage area of 1 box of tiles. One carton of 600 x 600 tiles will cover 1.08 square meters

 

6 / 1.08 = 5.55 ( to round up you will need 6 boxes to cover the area and you have extra should errors occur )

 

I hope that helps. My apologies to all the math teachers looking if I did not explain this well or made errors.

Hello @jesshard555 

 

Same thing my friend just a few questions to clarify what I'm looking at.

 

1. Is the 3600 the side where the cement laundry tub is?

2. Can you possibly post a photo of the right hand side of the wall where the fridge is.

 

Cheers!
