Many years ago during the sale of our last house, I discovered that there two areas of a house that buyers are always drawn towards like magnets – the kitchen and the bathrooms. It seems that if your kitchen and your bathroom don’t measure up, it could potentially work against the sale of your house. Having a lovely lounge, dining room and bedrooms just won’t compensate for bathrooms and kitchens that are seen to be rather sad.
Today we chat with Robyn Lambrick. Her hubby’s business, Beta Bathrooms, transforms existing bathrooms from drab to fab.
Q: Robyn, what can be done to give one’s bathroom and sanware a facelift?
We so often receive enquiries from homeowners who want to refresh their outdated or worn bathroom but are daunted by what such process might entail. Just think about it – ripping out tiles, sanware and cabinetry – what a mess! Not to mention the high cost of replacing those fittings and finishes.
Bathrooms and kitchens are the most permanent aesthetic fixtures in your home. To refresh any other room in your home can involve as little as a lick of paint and few new cushions. A bathroom or kitchen makeover is far more complex and expensive. Or is it?
The new trend to renovating these days is not to replace, but to resurface.
Q: What is resurfacing?
A: Resurfacing, also called refinishing or re-enamelling, is the process of refreshing the surface of worn, damaged sanitaryware, such as a bathtub, to a like-new condition. This process typically involves repairing any damaged areas and then spraying the surface with a durable enamel coating in-situ.
This bathroom facelift is far less expensive and disruptive, not to mention time-saving – we are in and out in 24 hours!
Q: Any last words of advice from Beta Bathrooms?
A: Again we say – Don’t replace. Resurface – save the planet and your pocket! Resurfacing is not just restricted to baths – basins, toilets, even tiles and kitchen cabinetry can be resurfaced. Also, don’t stress too much about the state of your bath, we have perfected a coating and procedure that is able to mend all damage to any bath – that includes scratches, stains and cracks. Beta bathrooms are able to assist sorting that issue for you within a 45 minute period. Please feel free to contact Stephen Lambrick for an onsite consultation and a free quote: here.
