How to Determine the Right Size When Renovating Bathrooms Gold Coast

When renovating bathrooms Gold Coast residents often ask about minimum or maximum size requirements. While we can renovate bathrooms of all shapes and sizes, there are some construction standards that we’re required by law to comply with.

These include:

Full bathrooms

Typically include a shower or bathtub, basin and toilet. The minimum size for a full bathroom in Australia is 2.5 square metres.

Ensuite bathrooms

That are attached to a bedroom generally have a minimum size requirement of 2.2 to 2.5 square metres.

Half bathrooms

That include a basin and toilet, but no bathtub, can be smaller, with a minimum requirement of around 1.5 to 1.8 square metres. A half bathroom may sometimes also include a shower.

Powder rooms

Are usually quite small since they are designed mainly for guest use. As a result, the minimum size is 1.2m x 1.2m or 1.4m x 0.95m for a rectangular layout.

It’s important to note that minimum standards may vary between the different states and territories. When planning a bathroom renovation it’s also important to consider accessibility requirements for any users with reduced mobility.

What Are Some Popular Design Features for Gold Coast Bathroom Renovations?

When planning bathroom renovations Gold Coast residents will often include some of the following design features:

Shower Niches

Shower niches provide practical storage space, allowing for easy access to toiletries while minimising clutter. They can be fully integrated into the shower walls and tiled to match the overall design scheme, creating a clean and streamlined look.

Walk-in Showers

Walk-in showers are a popular choice for modern bathroom designs with a luxurious aesthetic. These showers typically include a curbless design, creating a smooth transition from the bathroom floor to the shower area.

Double Vanity

Double vanities not only look fantastic, but they also offer increased functionality, especially for couples or families sharing a bathroom. Available in a variety of configurations, a double vanity can be customised to suit the needs of the space.

Freestanding Bathtub

Freestanding bathtubs are an elegant addition to any bathroom space. They’re the ideal choice for anyone seeking to create a “spa” experience at home and can serve as a stunning design feature when not in use.

Natural Elements

Another feature for bathrooms Gold Coast residents are requesting is the incorporation of natural elements. The inclusion of timber-look finishes, stone benchtops and abundant natural light can create a calm sanctuary ideal for rejuvenation.

Can You Make a Small Bathroom Look Bigger?

When it comes to bathroom renovations Gold Coast residents often ask: “How can I make my small bathroom look bigger?”

Many homes include smaller-sized bathrooms and with the right layout and design features, this doesn’t have to be a problem. However, a poorly designed small bathroom will feel cramped, cluttered and unpleasant to use.

Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do to make a small bathroom look bigger:

Increase the Size

If you’re already planning a bathroom renovation, then this could be a good time to consider increasing the size. Our talented design team can help you assess whether this is a viable option and what will be involved.

Change the Layout

The layout of the bathroom will have a big impact on the usefulness of the space. By changing the layout you may be able to incorporate more storage, increase the available floor space and improve the overall ergonomics of the bathroom.

Install a Floating Vanity

A floating vanity is the perfect choice for maximising the appeal of a small bathroom. Because it doesn’t continue all the way to the floor, a floating vanity appears to take up less space, while still providing essential storage.

Choose a Frameless Glass Shower

A frameless shower screen creates a sense of openness in a small bathroom. Without bulky frames, the shower area appears larger and less enclosed, visually expanding the space. This illusion can be enhanced further by continuing the shower floor and wall tiles throughout the entire bathroom.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Renovations Gold Coast

Our team is often asked to change the existing layout during bathroom renovations, and frequently we can do this. However, we can’t guarantee this will be possible for every project. This is because we need to consider a range of factors including the existing locations of your home’s electrical, plumbing and gas connections. We’ll also need to assess whether the current design will allow for any necessary structural changes caused by changing the layout.

Our design team will be happy to discuss all your bathroom renovation ideas, including what would be involved in changing the layout. They can also outline the various pros and cons with you before you commit to a final design.

It takes about 2-4 weeks on average for Gold Coast bathroom renovations to be completed. The overall timeframe of the project will depend on the scope of work, season (for example, many suppliers pause their operations during Christmastime) and the lead time for any custom or imported finishes that we may need to order.

Our experienced design team will work closely with you during the pre-planning stage to discuss your design ideas and establish a budget that works for you. This ensures everyone is on the same page when it comes to adhering to the requisite budget. We can then assist you in choosing finishes and fixtures that will look fantastic, suit your design aesthetic and that will comply with your stated budget.

As a best practice, we also encourage customers to include a 10% buffer within their final budget. This can be used to cover any unexpected expenses (such as finding rotted timber during the demolition process) without causing unnecessary budget stress.

When it comes to bathroom renovations Gold Coast residents will on average pay just over $20,000. That’s according to a report by the Housing Industry of Australia. However, as with all kitchen and bathroom renovations, Gold Coast homeowners should expect the final cost to vary based on the size of the project, the scope of work and the fixtures and finishes selected.

Some of the most popular design trends we’ve seen recently include:

  • Luxury finishes to create a resort-style spa at home.
  • The use of natural materials, such as timber and stone.
  • Mood lighting for a more relaxing space.
  • The integration of smart technology (such as digital shower controls and touchless taps).

Our design team stays updated with the latest trends, but we also understand that each bathroom renovation is different and should reflect the needs and style of the homeowner. To create kitchen and bathroom renovations Gold Coast residents will love, we focus on helping each individual to choose elements that suit their particular taste and lifestyle.

For bathroom renovations Gold Coast residents may need to obtain a building permit. This will usually depend on the scope of the project and local regulations. Our experienced team will advise if it’s necessary to apply for any permits to ensure your renovation is compliant with local building codes and regulations. We can also help with the application process.

At McColl Cabinetmakers, our team will be able to assist you in creating a budget that suits you, without sacrificing the important aspects of your bathroom renovation project.

Geoff and I would like to thank you so much for our beautiful new kitchen and laundry. We truly are over the moon! Installing a new kitchen is always daunting with so many things to decide on and we really just put our trust in you to manage it all.  The project ran so smoothly and the constant communication ensured that we were aware of what was happening at all stages.  Even a trade running slightly late ensured we received a text direct with an update. None of my last-minute changes (love my waterfall) were a problem and each of your contractors were polite, professional and most importantly respectful of the new social distancing requirements and hygiene measures. We will be looking forward to 'showing off' our new kitchen when we are allowed visitors again. Please pass on our thanks to each of your team.

Geoff & Sandra

Could not have asked for anything more with my new kitchen. Corey and the team made the whole process from start to finish so easy. All trades used throughout the renovation were friendly and professional. I would highly recommend McColl Cabinets to anyone wanting professional and prompt service and an outstanding result.

Tony and Gai, Beenleigh

We have used McColl Cabinetmakers on many of our projects now and have found them to be very easy to deal with. Corey is very knowledgeable and very helpful in designing the right kitchen layouts to suit our needs. We have also used McColl Cabinetmakers to build kitchens, wardrobes and vanities, they are always willing to help. The products are always of good quality and the installers are always happy to help adjust their schedules in case we run behind. Nothing is too much for these guys!! Price is fantastic, quality is awesome and communication is over and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend them!

Jodie Lamborne

Quite undoubtedly the best service we have ever received. Our new Kitchen and WIP looks amazing and is a dream to be in and has received many jaw dropping "WOWs" from friends and family. Corey was absolutely fantastic from initial consultations to project managing the entire job. Communication was exceptional. We loved that McColls took care of all the required tradies and found them all to be professional, friendly, polite and exceptionally tidy. We were provided with a timeline for all works to be completed and it was spot on! We are still in awe that our renovation has been completely stress free and couldn't be happier with the end result. We highly recommend McColl Cabinets to anyone needing a kitchen, bathroom or cabinetry. Great team, great work, it's a big thumbs up from us. Sincere thanks to you all.
