Almost every trade you’ll ever need to build a house will be required for the bathroom, which is why it is so expensive to renovate, says Darren Genner director of award-winning bathroom designer, Minosa Design (right). With trades in demand, he says clients are often surprised by labour costs, which can cost the same price as the materials.
Bathroom fittings and fixtures can vary widely in price, he says, so do your research. Mosaic and oversized tiles can both be costly to lay but underfloor heating is surprisingly affordable.
“It’s a great way to create a luxurious space.”
