Home Renovation Ideas to Maximise your Home’s Liveability - Part 2: The Bathroom

Last week we shared some kitchen renovation planning tips. This week, we’re talking about a much needed space for many homes – the additional bathroom.


How to achieve that additional bathroom


The bathroom is a high use, high traffic area, and if you, like many Australians and New Zealanders, live in a family home with only one bathroom, having recently spent so much time at home is surely causing some tension. Chances are, you’ve considered creating a second bathroom. If you’re in a position where you’d love a second bathroom but don’t think you have the space, you might be surprised to find out that a powder room only needs to be 2 square metres. For many families, this opens up their opportunities and can provide the additional bathroom they need.


In order to create a new powder room, complete with toilet and vanity, you will need to find the right spot and have access to plumbing. If traditional plumbing isn’t an option (for example, if your new powder room will be downstairs below the sewerage/water mains, on a concrete slab or even in an apartment), the Sanicompact can help.


The Sanicompact is an all-in-once macerating suite, meaning it’s the only product you need to have a toilet, anywhere in your home. It also features a second inlet for a hand basin, making it perfect for your new powder room. For those eco-conscious renovators, the Sanicompact was the first toilet ever awarded a 6 star WELS rating, making it one of the most water efficient toilets on the market. For reference, it consumes only 1.8L for half flush and 3L per full flush.


If you’re looking to create an additional complete bathroom, a product like the Saniaccess 3 is better for you. This macerator pump enables you to install a complete bathroom with toilet, hand basin and shower up to 5m vertically or 100m horizontally away from the sewerage/water mains, giving you flexibility for where to install your new dream bathroom.

For those home renovators who are also interested in a new freestanding bath, the Sanispeed is for you. A freestanding bathtub is not only a practical addition for your bathroom or ensuite, it is also a visually appealing addition. A freestanding tub invites luxury and is the ultimate home wellness treat (unless you are lucky enough to have the space for your very own steam room!). With a freestanding bathtub, you can choose a range of different styles from the sleek-lined modern through to the claw-footed traditional to suit every taste. Whichever option you choose, Saniflo can help you achieve it wherever you please.
