Hi all who has done a bathroom renovation that could tell me if it's very expensive to take out tiles and replace them ? Our builder talked me out of going with the colour we wanted so now it's too late to change it and worried it will look boring so want to change tiles at some stage

Yes is this not a cheap exercise. My guess would be between $2000 and up to $5000. Water proofing will also need to be redone on the walls depending what state you live in.

thank you, I figured it would be costly - wish i'd been more persistent with what I wanted. May need to leave it for a while and just paint the walls hahaha

If they aren't already on the walls, and they are that bad that you would consider re-tiling, I would stump up the variation fee and change them now.

Yes don't accept that no more variations are allowed.
If they won't accept a variation, tell them not to tile it.
Ironically that would be classed as a variation
They can ALWAYS do a variation. Complain and ask to speak to managers. Make a post on product review, make your complaint visible. Guarantee you'll get your variation.

Yes, it can be quite costly to take out tiles and replace them. However, the price does depend on what type of tiles you are going to choose and how complex the work will be. My advice is to do what you think is right.
