The Renovation Process
Project Managed Renovations
Better Bathrooms & Kitchens provides full project management of your renovation works from beginning to end. We work with a team of reliable and trusted tradespeople to complete your renovation, or alternately we are happy to work with your chosen tradespeople to ensure a smooth renovation process.
Our project manager will be in constant contact with you during the build process, keeping you up to date with events on site and ensuring that you are always in the loop as your dream kitchen or bathroom comes to life in front of your eyes!
The first step in your renovation journey begins with a visit to our showroom to discuss your requirements with one of our friendly and experienced designers. During this initial consultation, we will talk about what you would like to achieve and determine the options available to you.
You can arrange a booking with one of our talented designers by calling us on (03) 9370 7288. We strongly recommend that you bring photos and measurements of the space and any “scrapbook” images of ideas that you like to the appointment as this helps us to better determine your requirements.
Better Bathrooms and Kitchens offer obligation free quotes free of charge that outline all work to be done, as well as the bill of materials for fittings, fixtures, appliances and wall and floor coverings. All quotes are accompanied by a schematic design of your new or updated room, and if you accept the quotation we will provide you with professionally produced floor plans, elevations and 3D models to bring your design to life.
Acceptance of Quotation
Once the quotation is accepted, we will provide you with a contract and commence the design process.
Our professional and creative Design Team will work with you every step of the way to create your dream kitchen or bathroom. We guide you through all aspects of the design process from schematic design to the completed build, as well as helping you to choose the right selection of products, fittings and fixtures to ensure a truly great design.
As your design evolves, and you decide on the style and finish for your new kitchen or bathroom, we create a product specification chart, that outlines and details a range of products to choose from that have been specially selected by our team of designer to perfectly complement your renovation.
Technical Detailing of Plans
As we progress through the design of your dream kitchen or bathroom, we provide you with professionally drawn floorpans, elevations and 3D modelling that bring the design to life to give you a visual representation of what the finished product will look like. Our draftsman works closely with our designers to accurately detail and annotate your design, and will continually revise the drawings with every tweak of your proposed kitchen or bathroom. This ensures that the completed build reflects all that we have discussed and decided upon.
Once the plans for your new kitchen or bathroom have been finalised, our project manager will book an onsite inspection at your home, where they will fully explain the impending construction process and answer any questions you may have.
Commencement of Building Works
Construction begins with the carpentry team, who strip the designated area clean and begin making alterations as per the finalized plans and elevations. Plumbers and electricians will then remove electrical and plumbing assets, and also make any changes required as per the design. All rubbish is placed in a skip and removed from the site by our team as part of the process.
During Your Project
To prevent damage to unsealed/uncompleted areas during the build process, a waterproof membrane will be applied to appropriate areas. Once dry, our tilers will accurately lay all the tilework as per our professionally drawn plans. Cabinetry, bench tops and splash backs will then be completed, followed by all the fittings and fixtures. Finally, plumbing and electrical services will be professionally fitted and certified ready for use.
Completion of Works
Your designated project manager will tour the final project with you one last time, to ensure everything is completed to the high standards we've come to expect from our experienced and trusted renovations team and make sure that you are completely satisfied with the build.
Once all work has been completed on site, we will meticulously clean your brand new space which is now ready for you to enjoy!
