Renovating for Profit

6x Worthwhile Bathroom
Renovation Ideas According
to Real Estate Agents

Just like kitchens, bathrooms can make or break a deal. A modern and well-designed one can be the key to a sale. It’s for this reason that bathroom renovations are often the top priority for a home improvement project in Melbourne.

Toilets and bath tubs that need work tell a potential buyer that the plumbing might need an update too. This can trigger thoughts about future expenses and put them off. On the other hand, a new bathroom, even in an older building, can be seen as the benchmark for a property’s overall condition and add value to the premises.

Take note that not all remodelling projects have a positive effect on your sale. Here are some bathroom makeover ideas that will work according to expert real estate agents in Melbourne:

Bring Out the Bling with Hardware

Plumbing fixtures are to your bathroom the way accessories are to an outfit—they are the finishing touches. There are plenty of fixture brands worth checking out at your local home improvement supply store. However, it’s not the name you should be focusing on but the price and style.

Be Couple-Friendly with Pairs

The morning rush hour starts in the bathroom when people are jockeying for a spot at the sink. Brushing teeth, applying makeup, doing skincare, shaving—there are so many things to do! Make life easier for future buyers with double sinks, especially in the master bath. Don’t forget the matching pair of mirrors to match your bathroom renovations in Melbourne!

Think About Comfort with Classics

Certainly, it is suggested above that you should consider adding tech to the bathroom. However, you should be careful not to go overboard. It’s wiser to stick to what people are familiar with when it comes to toilets. Forgo electronic toilets with all the buttons as they may end up intimidating buyers. Rather, you will want to opt for the simple, modern white toilets most Australians know how to use.

Aim for Simplicity with White

Most buyers want a clean and updated look for the bath and you can achieve that with a simple white colour scheme. Subway tiles and white cabinets are great places to start. If you find that too boring, a neutral colour palette is also a good choice with light blue accents here and there. Should you want to add bold colours or anything non-traditional, you may leave that for the second or third bathrooms.

Have Something Big with the Baths

Lots of people are familiar with the phrase, “go big or go home”. It is a motto for many buyers when they’re looking at baths. Oversize tubs are frequently sought after along with walk-in showers. If you have space and budget to spare, consider getting a separate tub for an indeed updated look. Hand showers are a great addition too, and are pretty popular among pet owners and families with children.

Look Towards the Future with Tech

Smart homes may be everywhere in Melbourne these days, but gadgets are still not in the typical buyer’s make or break list. Then again, they do get excited about high-tech features such as built-in shower seats and bathroom audio systems. Digital showers wherein you can control temperature and water pressure via remote or LCD screen are rather impressive as well.

Bonus Tip: Get Expert Help

There are already several bathroom renovation tips above and here’s another one you should not overlook: booking a professional contractor. It’s true that it might save you money when you DIY. However, when you bring in a specialist to handle the bathroom makeover ideas you have in mind, you won’t have to worry if your skills are enough and if you’re doing things right.

First rate project management from start to finish – every step of the way. The quality of work from each of the tradesman involved was faultless, with the end result being a stunningly finished bathroom. Cameron and his team are very professional and made the whole renovation process quite painless. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough

Jason & Lana Radley


After 3 – 4 trades people being late and wanting to sell me what they wanted me to have rather than listen to what I wanted in my House I came across CMD Bathrooms – Cameron – he was on time when he came to give me a quote, he listened to what I wanted and gave constructive suggestions. He never said he could not do what I wanted; he understood that it was something I had to live with at least for another 20 years. In the bathrooms he brought his 10-year experience to help me achieve what I wanted.
On the planning and design phases of the project he was more than happy to explain and re explain that was not clear to me, in the execution phase he was more than happy to change minor things to suit my needs, on one occasion he had fitted the incorrect shower head and when I brought this to his attention he said “I will fix it “ no questions asked. Little things like that go a long way.
The timings of the project was over 3 weeks and he was able to get the 2 toilets from demolition to back to frame and completed as advised before commencing the project. The professionalism shown by Cameron and his team was second to none as I was also living in the house at this time. The team was on time and finished and cleaned up as they finished for the day.
Following on from the toilets I have also asked CMD to renovate my laundry powder-room study, replacing of Windows with brickwork.
Having built a good trusting relationship with Cameron I was more than able to give him a key to my house for him and his team to come and work on the house. Have no hesitation in recommending his work and happy for anyone to come and inspect his work if needed. Thank you again Cameron for your help and I am enjoying the good work done by your team.



Cameron was incredibly helpful, offering design solutions that improved the natural lighting and addressed my storage concerns. He worked within my budget to deliver a dream bathroom! CMD Bathroom Renovations finished the job on time and there were no surprises on price.

Five-star service and quality of work! Tiling is spectacular – markings between the Italian tiles carefully carried on tile to tile. Prompt attendance for quotes and work. Very easy to deal with and the price was very fair.

When I think of CMD bathrooms I think of how professional they were from start to finish. 
I was very pleased on completion with such high workmanship and detail that was put into our job. 
And the most important thing was they were very flexible with us from day one to finish and was a great price for such great workmanship.
I would definitely use CMD Bathrooms again and pass on to my friends and family. Thank you.


Chirnside Park

From start to finish, Cameron and his team exceeded our expectations and brought a refreshingly professional and courteous approach to the project. From providing us with a detailed and fully costed quote on the day that he visited us, to sticking to the demanding timetable and price, to working collaboratively with us on various decisions that had to be made, to the excellent craftsmanship and pride that his team showed in their work, to his promptness in responding to our numerous queries and to going that extra mile by attending to some tasks that were outside the scope of his quote without any fuss. Above all, we found Cameron to be very trustworthy and true to his word. For all these reasons I would (as I have already done) recommend Cameron and his team to anyone looking to do a bathroom renovation.

Bill Aspostolou


After 14 years, our bathroom and en-suite were looking very tired and outdated. Cameron came out and gave us some brilliant ideas and also showed us photos of previous renovations. From day one Cameron and his team were such a pleasure to work with and have in our home. The quality of work is faultless and the final result is beautiful. We love our new bathrooms and would highly recommend CMD Bathrooms without any hesitations.

Cameron and his crew of professional tradesmen did an outstanding job renovating our two bathrooms. Their workmanship was outstanding and the finished job more than matched our expectations.

They consulted with us whenever they had questions or concerns about the architect’s plans. They provided valuable advice and took pride in the work they were doing. I would highly recommend Cameron and his team to anyone considering a bathroom renovation.
