Bathroom Renovation Transformation

From Drab to Fab

Imagine walking into an old, drab bathroom and stepping out into a luxurious oasis. That’s exactly what we accomplished in our latest renovation project in Whangarei.

Our client envisioned a beige, elegant space that exudes both comfort and sophistication. With the help of 3D modeling by Whangarei Homestagers, we transformed their vision into reality.

Overcoming Plumbing Roadblocks

Every renovation comes with its own set of challenges. In this project, we encountered a few plumbing obstacles. Instead of moving walls or opening existing ones, we added a nib wall. This strategic solution allowed us to keep the structure intact while achieving the desired layout.

Maximising Space

Working with a tight space can be tricky, but our client desired an open and spacious feel for the bathroom. We decided to relocate the bathtub to the ensuite, freeing up ample room for the guest bathroom. This clever adjustment made a world of difference in creating a more open and inviting space.

Budget and Timeline

With a budget of $70,000 to $90,000, we aimed for high-quality results without cutting corners. Our flexible timeline allowed us to focus on every detail, ensuring the finished product was nothing short of spectacular.

Unique Features


The centerpiece of the bathroom is the elegant vanity from @plumblinenz. This piece combines functionality with style, offering ample storage while enhancing the overall aesthetic.


Subway tiles from @tilemaxnz adorn the walls, providing a classic yet contemporary look. For the flooring, we chose Terrazzo tiles from @tilespacenz, adding a touch of sophistication and texture to the space.


High-quality tapware from @abiinteriors ensures durability and style, complementing the overall design with its sleek and modern appearance.


The stylish basin from @bunningsnz not only serves its functional purpose but also adds a design element that ties the room together.


A custom glass shower enclosure by @metroglassnz creates an open and airy feel, making the bathroom appear larger and more inviting.


To perfectly illuminate the space, we selected a pendant light from @lightingdirectnz. This statement piece not only provides ample lighting but also adds a touch of elegance and warmth.
