We’re sharing our top bathroom remodeling ideas to help you get the new bathroom you deserve!

  1. Does your bathroom design just not work for you?

Many clients ask us to take a wall out to create a bigger bathroom, or add a wall to increase their some privacy. TJ’s can change your bathroom design to create a luxurious contemporary space. We’ll take the time to talk about how you want to use your bathroom, and suggest ways to make the most of a small bathroom renovation, or to create a totally new bathroom in the space you have.

  1. Bathroom cabinets saggy and shabby?

At TJ’s we are experts in cabinetry. We can design and build custom bathroom cabinets and new bathroom vanities to improve your bathroom design. Choose from floor to ceiling cabinetry for clean lines and extra storage, or a floating vanity that maximises space while creating lots of countertop space.

  1. Ugly or inefficient tapware?

Discover the range of modern taps and shower heads and change the look and function of your bathroom. Installing two shower heads or a rain-style shower head is a great way to up the luxury factor of your shower, and there are numerous sleek curved mixer taps for bathroom basins. Talk to us before you choose bathroom tapware as we’re familiar with the best quality, most efficient brands and the latest bathroom trends. We’ll advise the best tapware, so you can get the power back in your shower!

  1. Lighting not bright enough?

Bathrooms are often dark and dim and adding the right lighting adds lots of value. Bathroom lighting ideas include tactically placed down-lights to brighten up dull corners, wall lights to shed light on your face, heat lights to warm up your bathroom on cool mornings, or you can have a little fun with strip lighting around your mirror to make you feel like a star!

  1. Not enough power points?

It’s a great to add power points during bathroom renovations. Consider hiding them away in cupboards on the wall to stop children from getting at them, and to keep your bathroom design clean and sleek. Bathroom power points all need meet a range of safety requirements, so make sure you ask us about your plans for socket placement.

  1. Handles not doing the job anymore?

Quality bathroom cabinet handles are a great way to add style to your new bathroom. They need to be highly functional and look good at the same time – and last! There are so many handles to choose from, but we can advise on high quality brands, and the choice is easy when you are clear on the style of your bathroom design.

  1. Colour of your cabinetry a bit drab?

Look at your overall bathroom design to see what finish is best.  Your bathroom cabinets can have a painted finish or a wooden look.  Whatever you choose can completely change the mood of your room especially if it is a small bathroom.  ‘Light and bright’ is always popular, as are bold dark lines.  Creating a sense of space is key to achieving your new look.  Also think of functionality and the ease to keep it clean, especially if you have children.

  1. Vanity top and sink out of date?

Your vanity top is one of the most important decisions in the bathroom design.  Often people get caught up in s trendy look and forget that we need a place the brush our teeth, shave, and do hair and makeup. Your new bathroom will be one of the most used spaces in the house, and if you don’t get the bathroom vanity right, sharing the bathroom can cause chaos!  Consider whether there is room for two sinks or a longer vanity top; design is key.

  1. Steam lingering long after the shower is turned off?

Excess steam is irritating but long term it also can do permanent damage to your bathroom. It is essential to look at options for quick, effective venting when remodeling bathrooms. You can also add a heat pad behind the mirror to keep it clear all the time!

  1. Flooring not looking so good?

To tile or not to tile?  That is the question so many customers ask us, and the answer is usually ‘yes!’ Bathroom tiles are very versatile and easy to clean, and you can add underfloor heating to keep your feet warm in winter. Other bathroom flooring ideas we like are wood and lino – but it’s a very personal choice and it’s essential to choose the right flooring product to achieve the  desired effect. Dark wood floors or light natural stone tiles – there are plenty of great options to enhance your new bathroom design.
