From unwinding in the evening with a relaxing bath to making sure we look our best for the day ahead, most people spend a considerable amount of time in the bathroom. In fact, the average person will spend 416 days in the bathroom over their lifetime.
Given the number of hours we spend in the shower, on the toilet, or in front of the bathroom mirror, it’s easy to see why bathrooms are a popular renovation choice. A chic and functional bathroom can be a personal oasis, or simply a quiet place to escape the busyness of everyday life.
If you’re considering a bathroom renovation, it can be difficult to know where to start. What qualities should you look for in a bathroom renovation company, and where can you find the best in Canberra?
This article will outline everything you need to know to make your next bathroom renovation project a success.
What makes a great bathroom renovation company?
We recommend keeping the following in mind when assessing bathroom renovation companies.
Not sure what, exactly, you are looking for in a bathroom renovation company? Not to worry. Keep the following characteristics in mind as you conduct your research:
- An extensive bathroom renovations portfolio. You probably have something specific in mind for your bathroom renovation. Ask to view a company’s bathroom renovations portfolio before you engage them. That way, you can determine if they have the skills and design competency to deliver the bathroom of your dreams.
- Experience. Not all building companies specialise in bathroom renovations. Look for a company that has extensive experience renovating bathrooms, which can be more complex than other types of renovations. Bathrooms need to look great and be waterproof and functional.
- Transparent pricing. Your bathroom renovation company should be upfront with you about how much things will cost. Quotes and invoices should be transparent, with no unexpected fees or charges.
- Reliable and respectful of your property. From tilers to plumbers, look for a company who’s tradespeople arrive on time and ready to work. The best treat customers’ homes like their own – this means keeping mess and disruption to a minimum while being careful with your belongings.
