small shower trays, where?
Have you allowed to check the shower base into the wall for waterprofing & tiling? I often get asked why a persons shower is only 850 when they chose a 900mm one. They…
i have started to see the logic in having double basins as me and my husband get ready at the same time and we leave for work together.
Also sharing the bathroom is…
TV in bathroom?
WRT electrocution, couldn't shortening the lead so if the TV fell it would pull out the plug negate that concern? Or would there still be some residual power that could be…
Ensuite change - can it be done?
is the toilet going to be on an external wall by any chance? If not and you are on a slab it just means the slab needs to be cut and a new pipe laid which isn't the most…
Reno Costs Bathroom
Thanks for that. I wasn't sure how much and had put down $15K, difficult when you are just doing up a rough budget to see if a place is worth it or not.
I knew that…
Reno to Ensuite…is it possible?
Nah, it's too small to really do that much and it's not worth the cost (to me). We'll have it repainted though. Maybe one day do something with the tiles. Maybe. They're…

Just a few ideas:
Corner vanities sometimes work as space-savers. This isn't a nice one, but it gives you the general idea - you could easily have a beautiful cabinet…
There was a bidet in the house we bought about a year back. Couldn't wait to get rid of it. Advertised it on TP and eventually got a buyer who was quite particular about…
I'm looking for someone to do rendering in two bathrooms to prepare for the tiler (the walls are pretty rough after old tiles came off). The job is in Caulfield…

The ensuite before picture is below... (wow…
Automatically filling bath
Thank you possum!
We saw it in an open house and were interested in it, I thought it was Rheem but I will look for Rinnai. We are just about to build, so not too late!
Tile experts - some advice please?
We have ceramic rectified tiles in our bathroom - our tiler chose not to charge extra to lay them thank god but we did pay slightly extra for the tile itself.
compatable toilet with Cistern?
it will largely come down to the amount of water that the cistern flushes. Is it an Australian cistern? If it is it should be a 6/3 or 4.5/3 flush. So you will have to buy…
restore shower screen frame?
Is it possible/economical to remove and restore a powder coated aluminium fram of a shower screen?
There are chips and the colour is dated, but it is a great size 900 x…
Should tiles be sealed?
Not many are any good unless the grout is a fine grade...
If there is a large area I would think that the tile (groutline) gap is large too...
There is a fair probability…
Electric to Gas Hot water
My current unit has a small electric hotwater tank under the sink in the kitchen and am looking to upgrade to a continuous hot water system.

Show Me Small Bathrooms Please!?
That's not a bad idea, but the original layout isn't the problem. Just colours, fixtures & tiles that I am trying to get some inspirtion for.
Thanks Kexkez - then you would understand
Resurface/paint cast iron bath
It would be a simple resurfacing procedure. Check in your yellow pages, usually under bathroom renovations or similar and most areas would have someone who does that sort…
900 x 1200 shower - where do the taps go?
Heya Joles, great tile selection and the two shower thing is great. What colour tiles are those? I'm thinking of doing the two shower head thing too but plumbed to the…
the vinyl tiles that are supposed to be waterproof enough for bathrooms, are they also waterproof enough to put in the floor of a shower?

Bath Floor Screed thickness?
The primer will be 'chemically cured' not a chemist but I have seen the results of the difference.
Oposed to evaparating water.
fancy glass frame
Try Aska Glass at Lakemba 9759 1888 (that's if you are a Sydneysider) They are quite cheap & quick I had some prices as we were going to do a 1.5mtr panel in our glass…

You will have to install a 100mm 90 degree junction. The vented pipe that is currently there needs to stay, otherwise you wont have the drain vented. When you…
