Is your bathroom getting crowded in the morning?
Like the idea of having another bathroom but there is no room in your home to put it?
Why not do a small ensuite extension to your existing main bedroom?
Perth is full of older homes that have only one bathroom, Distinct Renovations try to make the cost of adding on a bathroom cost effective and time efficient to not interrupt your lifestyle.
Recently we completed a small ensuite extension to a customer’s existing home using timber frame construction we used BGC Nuline cladding on the exterior to give it a contrasting look to the double brick rendered exterior. Inside the ensuite consisted of a walk-in shower, 900mm vanity and a toilet. The tiling was a mix of modern grey concrete look tiles and large white wall tiles.
Wet areas are always the most expensive type of extension you can build due to the plumbing, tiling and special slab prep you must do such as screeding and waterproofing. Not to mention as with any extension there is the cost of a roof involved too! To help reduce the cost with this extension we added on a skillion colorbond roof which again created a modern contrast, to the tiled roof.
Above and beyond the expense everyone prefers a home with two bathrooms over just one, and therefore adding on an ensuite can add serious value to your home if you are looking at re selling in the future or if you want to increase the value of your home for other reasons.
Besides this point, how long can you handle living with just one bathroom? If you plan to stay in the home long term a combination of adding value to your home and having a second bathroom is more than enough to warrant paying for an extension.
Extending your home will involve development approvals through the council and building permits too. Therefore, it is important that you use a licensed builder and ensure they cover the work with home indemnity insurances to protect you and future owners of your home.
Due to the above mentioned added costs of building a wet area and initial work involved before the build starts, extensions can be costly.
Distinct Renovations help you through the whole process from start to finish to ensure you are well looked after. Renovating and extending your home can be stressful we make it less stress for you!
The above renovation was near on 6m2 of bathroom and cost the client $20,000. This included everything from start to finish. On completion there was nothing further the customer needed to do other than enjoy the tranquility of their new bathroom.
