Bathroom Update Tips that are quick and cost effective

Is a bathroom update on the cards? Have you ever thought about a bathroom update? Have you noticed things that you don’t adore about your bathroom since you’ve been spending more time at home? You don’t have to jump right into an overhaul. You can refresh your bathroom on a budget. Check out our quick tips for a simple and effective bathroom update.

Tip 1: Deep Clean

Before you set out on redecorating or doing small repairs on your bathroom, give it a deep clean and declutter. This means getting out the scrubbing brush, gloves, paper towel and cleaning products and putting some real elbow grease into the job. You will notice a huge difference straight away if you commit to do it properly.

Safety First Tip: Check the use-by date on all your products and get rid of any that are no longer safe to use. This will also immediately free up more storage space in your bathroom and will make you feel like you have already accomplished something! Great motivation to keep going.

A fresh and clean bathroom provides you with a blank canvas to help you map out what updates you want and need to make. You’ll also have the opportunity to notice some of the details that need your attention during your update. This is also the time to address any nasty issues such as a leaking shower recess needing repair, cracked tiles and missing grout.

Pro Tip: Don’t forget to clean the grout!

I rent. I reported a leaking shower which to my realestate agent. They had these guys fix leaking which was in the ensuite and was leaking through the floor into my garage. The leak was regular and I had a bucket in place to catch it every time we showered!SealRITE sent out Han (yeah pronounced like the star wars character Han Solo) who was super polite, did a perfect job and left zero mess. He came at 7am the first day but on the second day was happy to come later to fit in with my schedule - really nice guy.I wish this thing had 10 stars.

Han was wonderful, the job he did was great but what was so unexpected was how clean he left the house and bathroom after re-tiling the shower. I would definitely recommend his workmanship and professionalism to anyone.

The quoting team and Renee were great but a few small issues with the repairs. Had our shower waterproofed and re-tiled and walls re-grouted.Some bits of grout were missed or just cleaned, this became apparent after about 2 months when it discolored. Not too worried as i know its easy to miss bits when you're looking at a wall of white.One of the hob tiles had a very small chip which had been hidden with a blob of grout, again didn't find this until after a few cleans when it came off.The floor tiles weren't cut to line up with the wall tile grout lines, again not a major deal but it would have been nice as this is how it was originally and wouldn't have been hard.I had supplied 2 boxes of tiles which were torn open and then not used leaving me with 2 stacks of tiles and no box to store them in.Again office staff were great but tradesman could have paid a bit more attention to detail (yes i know i am picky but I'm also a tradie and expect others to work to my standard) and mainly wasn't impressed with the hidden chip.

We used SealRITE for two leaking shower repairs in southern Sydney. We had previously booked a cowboy who was completely useless to deal with and it was impossible to trust him because he wouldn't communicate on even the most minor of issues. We were landlords and did not have access to the property to monitor what was happening which was very disconcerting. We switched to SealRITE as soon as we could and they were so professional from the first moment until the job was done. It was just wonderful. If you are a landlord and need some waterproofing and shower fix done i would recommend SealRITE for piece of mind and a smooth job.

We live by the Cronulla oceanfront where salt ans winds and sun cause major deterioration to our balconies. Sealrite were so professional and thorough! All of the workmen involved were courteous, efficient and communicated each step of the way. Renae coordinated all the works with myself and my neighbours and kept us informed allthe way. Highly recommended!

SealRite repaired our shower after the waterproofing had failed. The tradesman was fantastic. On time, professional, courtesy of us and making sure we were happy, barely took a break all day for 3 days. We were so impressed. Our experience was great and we would highly recommend.

I evaluated a number of regrouting services prior to going ahead with SealRITE. They were professional, explained the process in detail, catered to my urgency needs and assured me i wouldn't be disappointed. The job was fantastic and it exceeded my expectations. Will definitely use them again

They recently repaired my shower. They were really lovely on to deal with. Explained everything that was going to happen and kept me informed every step. The guy that came to my house was on time and left everything very clean and tidy. The shower look fantastic and is no longer leaking into my kitchen below. Highly recommend. Always happy to refer good local companies.

Our shower looks brand new and I am very happy with the job. It was a pleasure to deal with this company. From the very pleasant and helpful Lesley and Amanda who I spoke to on the phone, to Ryan who quoted the job and Dominic who carried out the work, explaining what he was doing at each stage of the job. He even wiped his shoes with a chux each time he had to step outside the bathroom so he didn't walk any dust or debri through the home. I highly recommend this company.
