Luxury bathroom renovations are more than just an upgrade; they’re a transformation of your personal space into a haven of comfort and elegance. Imagine stepping into a bathroom that feels like a private spa, where every detail reflects your taste for the finer things in life. This is the allure of a luxury bathroom renovation and something we’re passionate about providing for our customers.

In this guide, we’ll delve into what it takes to create such an exquisite space and why it’s a worthwhile investment for your home. Early in this journey, it’s essential to understand the costs associated with luxury bathroom renovation, a key aspect we will explore in detail.

The Allure of Luxury Bathroom Renovations

The appeal of luxury bathrooms lies in their ability to offer more than just functionality. They are a statement of style and personal success. A high-end bathroom remodel not only enhances your quality of life but also significantly increases the value of your property. It’s an investment that pays dividends in both daily enjoyment, self-care and long-term financial returns.

Average Costs of Luxury Bathroom Renovations

On average, luxury bathroom renovations can be around €12,000, though this figure can vary widely based on several factors. This cost is significantly higher than standard bathroom renovations, reflecting the premium materials, sophisticated design considerations and advanced features that define luxury bathrooms. The investment in a luxury bathroom goes beyond mere aesthetics; it’s about creating an exclusive and highly personalised space that’s unique to you.

Factors Influencing the Cost

  1. Size of the Bathroom: The larger the space, the higher the cost. More square footage means more materials and potentially more complex design considerations.
  2. Materials and Finishes: Luxury bathrooms often feature high-end materials like natural stone, bespoke tiles, and designer fixtures, all of which contribute to the overall cost.
  3. Fixtures: We only work with the best Irish and Global suppliers meaning you’ll be able to finish and fit your bathroom with premium brands that a lot of clients like to have in their main bathroom.
  4. Customization: Personalised designs and custom-made fixtures tailored to your specific preferences can significantly increase the cost but also ensure a unique and exclusive bathroom experience.

Key Components of a Luxury Bathroom Renovation

Luxury bathrooms are characterised by their high-end fixtures, such as designer sinks, state-of-the-art shower systems, and elegant lighting solutions. Designer tiles and smart technology integration are also common features. These elements are not just about functionality; they are carefully selected to create a cohesive and luxurious aesthetic.

Maximizing your investment

To ensure value for money, it’s crucial to work with experienced designers and contractors like our team who specialise in luxury renovations. We can guide you in making choices that balance your preferences, costs and the overall impact of the renovation. Additionally, investing in a luxury bathroom does have long-term benefits.

How much does a new bathroom add to your home?

Typically, an updated bathroom can potentially add between 4-5% to the value of your home. Of course, this varies depending on your design and build. It will also depend on the quality of tiles, baths, and fixtures. Our team will be able to talk you through this when you sit down with them or take a guided tour of our showroom.

Can the quality of the bathroom affect your house prices?

Yes, a study by Mira in the UK found that people would offer an additional £3,795.66 in 2020 to a home with a newly renovated bathroom. That is around €4,380. With inflation and the value of houses increasing generally since 2020, you can expect this figure to be even higher depending on the finish, features and size of the room
