Hi, I'm renovating my old bathroom and have some questions.

Massive tiling dilemma
Wow thanks for all of the replies... I think i have decided that a change is definitely required.
The pics gives me something to think about.
Cornice or no cornice?
I know this is going to sound silly but I am sooo confused. Why does square set have to be any better than having cornice? Doesn't the roof have to be straight regardless?…
Opinions on shower heads.
I am looking for that "product you couldn' do without." I have a shower stool which is great. However, HOW do you get in and out of…
Another tiling question?
The larger the tile, the harder it is to eliminate 'lipping'.
Tilers will tell you for that reason they much prefer laying smaller tiles. We have had a couple of…
Over head drencher Arm length
2.7 may be a little high. When I used to design these into bathrooms I generally put them at about 2.1, 2.2. I think a standard vertical arm comes in 300, 450 or 600mm…
what to do with bathroom?
Thanks for the tips
I don't think the rest of the window frame is missing, I think it is just covered up.
I do think a bigger mirror would be a good idea though. So…
Hot water pressure ?
I can remember years ago a guy who said something about a pressure regulator system that simultaneously reduced the flow of both hot and cold water if another tap was…
Help! Bathroom layout..
Just keep in mind, I think with something like this below the showerheads, you might need to pay extra attention when cleaning, it's probably a good…

Green/Blue stuff around tap base
Our tap gets this sometimes, but it's a lot darker and takes a lot longer to develop. It's just some sort of mineral build up that in our case has caused a bit of…
Designing A Small Bathroom
All excellent ideas. The thing about putting in a large rug over dark tiles...luckily I don't have this problem, however if I did, a rug would not do. I can't even fit a…
This was also my favorite scheme. I think I will now go for it.
considering 2 vanities.. opinions please
Yes that is what I liked, the mirror comes with it also.
And it has plenty of storage space. Its just so different and unique.
I'd honestly buy it right now but I still…
Lanark make a pretty big range and are manufactured in Melbourne. We had a catalogue from Plumbtec the other day with a corner side-by-side for under $2K.
Sea salt/Zucchero laminex
"Sea salt/Zucchero" laminex. Has anyone used either of these laminex colours? I think they look fabulous but would love to see any pics.
Some glass shelves have a built-in soap dish, likethis one from Reece: http://www.reece.com.au/products/hires/2261358.jpg. (Can't post the…
Round Vs Rectangular basins
We have chosen semi-recessed-the ensuite one is quite large. Very nice without the price tag. (sorry no pics). Initially I liked the oval above counter ones. Ideally I…
Vanity with round basin
Thanks, will have to check out the Showerama ones, they look very much what I was after. Will also have to find out if I can mix and match with the vanities and basins.
I am new to this site and have been reading through many posts and have learned a lot already! I thought I would put my plans so far up for comments. I am just at the…
is my ensuite disproportionate?
I'd push the WIR out to line up with the entry/hall way wall.
This would then allow enough room to keep your double vanity and put the WC beside it…
Stuck on colour for tiles
There really aren't any rules. The size and layout of your room might affect how certain colours or styles work, but in the end it comes down to what you like. Maybe…
Frameless shower screen $$$
Have done a bit more homework, got another quote & phoned another company. Both were considerably more like $2200 & over $3k, so have gone with the original one &…
When we first started to look into building I thought a toilet is a toilet.
But quickly realising that four ensuites and two powder-rooms meant an awful lot of toilets I…

Teenager Showering Times
when i was younger and still living at home my brother, who is 11 years younger than me, used to take forever in the shower but still get out with a dirty face or unwashed…

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…
