A bathroom renovation or remodel is a fantastic way to enhance your home and increase the value of your property. Typically, it’s bathrooms and kitchens that have a noticeable impact on property values, so choosing to renovate either or both of these areas can boost the value of your home and offer an impressive return on investment.
Of course, renovating your bathroom isn’t solely about adding value to your property. When you remodel your bathroom, you can create a more functional space that reflects your personality and style.

With more than ten years’ experience in the industry, we’ve completed hundreds of successful bathroom renovations and have a customer satisfaction rate that’s second to none!
What Does a Bathroom Renovation Involve?
A bathroom renovation can take many forms. Some homeowners may want to completely gut the existing bathroom and refit it with new plumbing and fixtures, for example. Others may be planning to extend the property to create a larger bathroom. Alternatively, you may be happy with the existing functionality of your bathroom and simply want to upgrade the fixtures and décor.
Ultimately, every bathroom renovation is unique. At SF Renovations Geelong, we understand the importance of taking a custom approach to every one of our projects. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions when it comes to home renovations and our commitment to transparency, quality and personalisation reflects this.
Designing a New Bathroom
Many people assume that designing a bathroom is easy, mainly because there are standard fixtures that you’ll want to include. However, there are plenty of things to consider when you’re creating a new bathroom for your property, which is why we’re here to help.
Firstly, you’ll want to think about the functionality of the room. Do you want to have a bath and a shower in your new bathroom or are you keen to save space by having a shower only? Are you going to create a separate room for the W.C., or will this be installed in the bathroom itself? Will you stick to a more traditional design or are you thinking about switching to a wet room style instead?
As you can see, there are endless things to think about when it comes to how you want your bathroom to function. With expert input, you can discuss your ideas and access even more inspiration.
A key element of the functionality of your bathroom is the plumbing and power, so it’s important to address these too. If your current system only offers low pressure, you may want to upgrade the plumbing as part of the renovation. Installing a water pump could be an easy and low-cost way to improve the functionality without substantially increasing the amount of work that needs to be undertaken, for example.
Alternatively, you may want to switch from an older style shower to an electric power shower. If so, electrical power may need to be rerouted to the bathroom. With certified electricians on hand to complete this aspect of the project, you won’t need to hire a range of different contractors to complete different elements of the renovation. In fact, we’ll undertake every element of your bathroom renovations from start to finish.
Creating a Bespoke Environment
Choosing your fixtures, fittings, and décor is one of the most exciting parts of planning a renovation. You may want to recreate a spa-like environment or combine classic features for a more traditional feel. No matter what your style, we’ve got a wide range of baths, showers, W.C.s, tiles, sinks and taps to choose from. In fact, we can access virtually any fixtures and fittings you’ve got your eye on.
What’s more – we’ll help you to choose from a range of paint, flooring and materials that are suitable for use in a bathroom environment. When excess moisture and heat can damage standard materials, it’s important to ensure that your new bathroom will look and feel fantastic well into the future.
Completing Your Bathroom Renovation
Choosing a bathroom design can take some time, so it’s important to give yourself the freedom to experiment with different ideas. At SF Renovations Geelong, we want our clients to be utterly delighted with the end result, which is why we never put any pressure on you to make any design decisions until you’re ready to do so.
When you’ve finalised your design, we’ll get to work planning the renovation. At a time and date that’s convenient for you, we’ll begin the process of renovating your bathroom. Typically, this involves removing the existing fixtures and fittings before completing behind-the-scenes components, like the electrical rewiring and plumbing.
From there, we’ll prepare the walls, floor and ceiling ready for new fixtures and fittings to be installed. Additionally, the décor you’ve chosen, such as the tiles or paint, will be installed or applied to really bring the room to life. With only the finishing touches left to add, your bathroom renovation can be completed more quickly than you think.
