The Best Bathroom Renovations in Canberra


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.

l had Mark Sheppard renovate our bathroom 2018 and am completely happy. The new design is outstanding due to Mark’s creative design and everything was done to the highest quality for decent price. When Mark found the floor had a big hole in it – he replaced without any extra charge to maintain the integrity of his original quote. (that was worth $3000) We had already had our bathroom renovated in the last 10 years but the quality of the work done that time was poor. Mark did such a good job that l would recommend him 100 percent as he does things to the highest standard.

We were recommended Oli from Salt Renovations by the good guys down at the Bathroom Warehouse. We figured they’d see a lot of tradies and reno jobs, so we met up with Oli up and had a chat. We really liked that Oli ‘got’ exactly what my wife and I wanted without trying to ‘upsell’ or over capitalise. We also really appreciated Oli’s recommendations on what might work better or how to get more from our budget. Long story short, we used Oli for our bathroom and ensuite renovations. We liked their work so much we got Salt Renovations back a few months later to do our kitchen. They’ve got photos of their work on the website too:

I found Mark Sheppard through a review on this site and chose him to renovate my ensuite. When Mark came over to look at my bathroom, he was really genuine and it was clear that he was out to make an honest living, rather than charging through the nose. Mark’s quote was comparitable with other companies but I felt like it was better value for money because he included so many little extras to ensure that I ended up with a quality bathroom. Mark and his team were prompt , polite, informative and friendly, which is important when you’re greeting tradies first thing in the morning. I am delighted with my new modern and sophisticated ensuite. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone interested in bathroom renovations. His number is ?0405 386 594?

I can thoroughly recommend Mark Sheppard, his mobile is 0405386594 and website is He provided wonderful service when the ensuite of our investment unit needed a replacement shower screen, extra towel rails, hooks and a tallboy cupboard. Not a big job but an urgent one at Christmas, the busiest time of year. We live in Adelaide and Mark’s name was one of 3 recommendations sent by email following a plea to the very helpful staff at Reece Bathroomlife at Fyshwick (ask for Mitchell or Jayde). A phone call later and Mark agreed to meet us at the unit in just 3 days’ time! He assured us he could organise the removal of the old shower screen, custom manufacture and install a new shower screen, along with extra rails/hooks and the tallboy. It would be a 3 week wait for the shower screen and the job would take a half days work. The items needed were ordered, Mark took care of accepting delivery of everything at his address and we went back to Adelaide confident we’d made the right decision. The shower screen was ready at the promised 3 weeks and Mark arranged a date for installation that gave me time to book airfares back to Canberra. True to his word the job was done between 9am and 12noon. Mark is a tradesman that is honest, reliable and provides quality service and I cannot recommend him enough.

Matt from Nu-Look did a really good job with our recent kitchen reno – good communication, knowledgeable, very professional. I believe they do bathrooms too.

I recently had my bathroom done and the toilet replaced in my ensuite. Mark Sheppard did the work and I can’t praise his work or his approach highly enough. Very professional and polite; always on time; comes shopping with you so that you get the right items that fit your plumbing etc. His phone number is 0405 386 594.

I got a recommendation from the RiotACT two years ago. John from Purr-fect Bathrooms was a pleasure to work with. We replaced our 1996 large ensuite. He briefed us well and sent us to his preferred bathrooms supplier – we think we got a really good deal. He turns up on time, cleans up, and he and his team were a pleasure to have around for the short time it took them to install. A few months after completion, we discovered a slow leak which we thought had something to do with the renovation. John came over that day, did in inspection, explained the problem – which was not his work, and offered to come back a few weeks later to repair the hole in the wardrobe. He was shortlisted because he likes cats, but it wasn’t the final reason we selected him!
