Bathroom renovation and construction will often start with a free measure and quotation, combined with free design advice if required.
If necessary, walls can be removed to enlarge the space. Often the entire room will be gutted and taken back to the ‘raw’ frame stage which then allows for repairs or changes, including the placement of plumbing fixtures. This also is an opportunity to fit insulation, plus lining and floor materials more appropriate to ‘wet’ areas.
A strong emphasis is placed on waterproofing to Australian standards, which safeguards against future problems.
The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house, though often with space limitations. Clever and creative design is essential in achieving the best use of space so that the newly renovated bathroom no longer feels cramped.
Every bathroom is different. The already fixed positions of doors and windows may seem to limit layout options, thus smart design becomes even more important.
Derwent Bathrooms aims to respect and sympathetically reflect the wishes and personal tastes of clients, but to offer suggestions and advice about how to best achieve desired outcomes.
We have well developed relationships with tile and bathroom fittings suppliers, thus clients can benefit from up to date information in these areas.
Derwent Bathrooms has a network of quality subcontractors across the trades spectrum. We consistently use the same tried and proven tilers, plumbers, electricians and glazers etc all of whom genuinely reflect a very high standard of work. More often than not after completion of the bathroom project, clients ask for the contact details of the trades people in question, for future reference, such is their level of satisfaction.
Reliable and punctual subcontractors allow the confident coordination of work tasks which minimises disruption and job duration.
Attention to detail is so important in a concentrated space such as a bathroom where almost everything becomes a feature.
Precise tile work possibly with recessed shelves, the clarity and freshness of glass screens and mirrors, discreet and carefully chosen lighting…all these enhance the tasteful selection of fixtures.
Ultimately the bathroom should be highly functional yet also very pleasing to the eye.
