Default Bathroom Renovations

I am looking at renovating our bathrooms in the next 6-8 months. Can anyone in Perth recommend a company that does the whole package?

Id personally go and buy the materials myself.
Good place is an auction they have on a tuesday on buckingham drive wangara.
You can get toilet, shower, vanity units and all your bits from there at very reasonable prices.
Then get a builder, who can plumb, tile and do all the bits for you and save a fortune.

Worked out around $2000 versus about $7000 good luck

I know but I did that when we did the kitchen and it was a nightmare install. I need something a bit more hassle free this time around but thanks for your comments, I will put that to the husband.

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND??????? After the kitchen I would have thought you would keep away from renovating for a long long time.

I know you would think so wouldn't you. We weren't going to do it but I have just inherited some money so we can afford to now

No probs, it will be at least 6 months before we can start as we are at the mercy of the legal formalities which can take a long time. Contact me when you get here.

How about using your inheritance money to pay for the shortfall in rent to get your child into a good state school area (if you don't get into the private) ;-)
