Reasons for Bathroom Renovations
Bathrooms have a tendency to be utilitarian—something you only use when you need it. But having a luxurious space that you can unwind in can change that. If you’re the kind of person who enjoys a long soak or a generous shower, why not make it the most enjoyable space you can?
With continual improvements in bathroom features, furniture, and technology, there will always be something that can improve your bathroom. And, if it has been a long time since yours was built, it may be due an upgrade anyway! Whether small touches or significant changes, a renovation can improve your situation.
Energy Cost Savings
Older bathrooms don’t always have the most efficient mechanisms in place. Whether it is the amount of water, your toilet holds or the amount of electricity your lights or shower uses. Renovating your bathroom gives you the opportunity to make it more efficient and, thus, easier on energy costs. You can even get home energy grants to help.
Added Value to Your Home
The more luxurious and the more functional your home, the more value it will hold. Though it’s not necessarily a driving factor for bathroom renovations in Cork, it certainly helps that it will improve the value your home. Phone our bathroom renovations Cork experts for more information today.
Fix Existing Problems
Problems happen over time, and they’re not always the severe kind of problems that require an immediate visit from the plumber. There are many kinds of problems—cracked tiles, leaking taps, etc.—that get left for years. A bathroom renovation is a perfect chance to put these issues to rest.
Types of Bathroom Renovations Cork:
Traditional designs—often under the label of “vintage”—have been making a strong comeback recently, and bathrooms are no exception. Traditional bathrooms can feel cosier than their contemporary counterparts thanks to more liberal use of woods. They are ideally suited for larger bathrooms, though traditional elements can be brought into small bathrooms.
Modern bathrooms are often popular for their intelligent use of space and simplistic design. Expect to find more angular features and smooth, glossy surfaces. As bathroom renovation ideas go, modern bathrooms are very well suited to bathrooms with limited space, though they still make an excellent design for a larger bathroom.
Ensuites are great for houses with a lot of people. They are typically smaller than a regular bathroom but linked directly to a bedroom. You’ll still want to head off to the main bathroom for a soak, but your ensuite is there for everything else, and you won’t have to worry about it being occupied. By taking care of all aspects of the project, we can ensure that there are no delays due to miscommunication or scheduling conflicts. From your point of view, you will have one company to deal with, and the project will seamlessly go ahead under our careful management.
Wet rooms are ideal for those of us that prefer a good shower to a soak in the tub. For a wet room, the shower is the centrepiece, and the room waterproof with the floor being on the same level as the shower itself. This style of bathroom creates a luxurious spa-like appearance. We understand the importance of keeping the building’s original character intact when restoring and will work to keep as much of the property’s original features as possible. We can also implement touches of modern convenience where appropriate, such as electrical systems, and plumbing conveniences.
WC - Water Closets
Few houses in Ireland are in a situation where an extra loo would not improve the living situation, especially when that house is home to a big family. Water closets are small and typically contain just a toilet and a sink, but they can make life a lot easier in busy homes.
Bathroom Renovations Cork - Frequently Asked Questions
How much is it to renovate a bathroom?
Bathroom renovation costs are largely dependent on the size and scope of the renovation, but we can get a rough idea by working on a cost per metre squared basis. An average bathroom renovation will cost around €00 per square metre. Given that figure and the average size of a bathroom we can say that a typical bathroom renovation will cost around €0000.
Of course, there are many mitigating factors. For example, a renovation that requires no structural work will cost far less than one that needs said structural work.
How much to renovate a small bathroom?
Of course, factors like structural work, the choice of fixtures, and how small we are talking all come into play when determining the cost of bathroom renovations. As a general rule, we would expect typical bathroom renovations to be between €0000 and €0000.
In a smaller bathroom, the fixtures become the dominant factor in price. There will be less tiling and labour due to the smaller space, but the cost of a shower or sink will be the same.
How long does a bathroom renovation take?
Naturally, we would not want to give you the impression that we can predict how long bathroom renovations would take without knowing anything about the project. Every renovation is different, and seemingly small changes can have a disproportionate effect on the cost. As a general rule, we would expect average-sized bathroom renovations to take around twenty days to complete. That being said, larger bathrooms, or particularly complex renovations, can take as much as twice that. It is worth remembering that these periods often don’t include weekends, so a twenty-day time frame means around four and a half weeks.
What is the difference between a walk-in shower and a wet room?
For shower-lovers, the most significant decision they will make with their bathroom renovation is whether to go with a walk-in shower or a wet room. The primary difference is one of space. A walk-in shower can be thought of as a self-contained unit. There will be a raised area designed to keep the water in and, typically, walls and a door on all sides. A walk-in shower is far more spacious, and will usually be part of a wet room where the shower floor and the bathroom floor is shared, meaning no awkward stepping over a raised lip to get in and out of the shower.
