Bathroom Reno

The project

For anyone with small children, you’ll understand that an easy bath-time means a more restful sleep for all! Space and storage for a young growing family were important features for the owners of this two-storey, four-bedroom Lynton home in Adelaide.

The original bathroom and laundry were limited in space mainly because of the configuration of the room. The layout didn’t provide enough bench and storage space or room to move around easily. The home was built with solid brick walls, which can incur higher costs in renovation fees. However we were mindful of the allocated budget and suggested ways to renovate the bathroom and laundry without additional and unnecessary costs.

Ken Hall were one of three bathroom renovation companies the family called for a quote.

We pride ourselves on providing a personalised and professional service to our customers, and we won the job because of our more personable approach. We visited the couple in their home for an initial consultation and discussed the renovation process in detail. We reviewed their budget and how to best use their funds, and agreed to a time frame for the project. They felt well informed and comfortable with the way their project would be managed.


The customer’s criteria

The owners wanted to keep the footprint and walls of the bathroom and laundry, with the space reconfigured to make it useful. The bathroom needed a bathtub big enough for adults and children, a vanity and shower, and the laundry needed storage and bench space.

The benefit of having qualified bathroom and interior designers managing our bathroom renovation projects is our expertise and knowledge in creating useable space. This starts by clearly understanding our customers’ needs during the planning and consultation phase.


The products

In the bathroom

Floating vanity – we suggested a floating vanity for an extra sense of space which is ideal for smaller bathrooms.

Mirrored cabinet – we installed a matching mirrored cabinet above the vanity for storage. As this was a solid brick home, a niched cabinet was not viable as the brickwork was too soft to cut into and would have required replacing.

Floor to ceiling wall tiles – the owners opted for a simple large white tile with a chevron design for the main wall as a feature.

Charcoal-coloured floor tiles – a plain charcoal tile was chosen for the floors, contrasting well with the white walls.

Walk-in shower – with a smaller space to work with, we designed the shower as a walk-in with one side opening to a dry zone.

Bathtub – we installed a new bathtub in the same dimensions, with a swivel tap to move out of the way of little heads!

Dual flushing toilet – a simple wall-mounted toilet was installed with a soft close lid and dual flushing capabilities for water savings.


In the laundry

The existing hot water service was located inside the laundry taking up space that was ideal for storage cupboards and benches.

We removed the hot water service and installed an instantaneous gas water heater system and used this area to install a much needed broom and linen cupboard. We carried the same theme from the bathroom to the laundry - the same floor tile, same feature tile for the splashback and a similar timber laminate for the overhead cabinets we used with the bathroom vanity.

Client Testimonial

Sarah Luthaus

“We initially chose Ken Hall because of their professional and open approach, as well as their competitive costing. Ken Hall was the third quote we had obtained and so we had some experience in the process when Meegan (Ken Hall's project manager) first met with us. Right from the outset her communication was timely and professional. She was also the first person to sit us down and walk us through the quote, making sure we were all on the same page and pointing out where we could save money if we wanted to.

We felt the major benefit of choosing Ken Hall was that we had this dedicated project manager. Meegan was always practical, easy to work with, and – as an interior designer – had lots of design ideas that we hadn't considered.

All workers were very competent and friendly, and we trusted them in our house when we weren't there. They were also very aware of the tight deadline we had placed on them and worked hard to get the project done in time. Of course some hiccups were encountered but they were dealt with promptly and in a professional manner.

Most importantly though, the finished job is a very high standard, and we couldn't be happier. We truly feel that Ken Hall's team has helped to add a lot of value to our home."
