Aidan Kelly Construction - Family Bathroom Renovation
Aidan Kelly Construction - Carlow bathroom refurbishment with shower over bath


The Main or ‘Family’ Bathroom is so called because it is often the most used bathroom in your home. It is usually accessed off a hallway close to the bedrooms and can be either upstairs or downstairs depending on the layout of your house. A newly renovated main bathroom is therefore likely to be enjoyed by a large number of people whether they be guests or family members.

Of course the bathroom design needs to be practical and include all of the elements required for modern living. This, however, doesn’t mean that elements of luxury and style cannot be incorporated into the design in order to increase the desirability of and ultimately increase the value of your home. That is why we place such an emphasis on getting the design right. Our 3D images will help you envisage exactly how your completed main bathroom will look before we start the work. Only when you are completely satisfied with the design will we begin ordering the specified materials and scheduling installation.

Typical elements which you will need to consider when renovating your main bathroom include,

Toilet – wall hung or standard

Cistern – concealed or close coupled

Bath – size, shape and style

Bath screen or curtain

Bath filler – overflow filler, wall mounted or deck mounted.

Shower – over bath or separate cubicle

Shower tray – walk in (wet room), raised or low profile

Shower door or screen

Shower valves – concealed or exposed

Vanity unit – wall hung or floor standing

Basin taps

Mirror or mirror cabinet


Power outlets – toothbrush or shaver charging sockets

Radiator – towel radiator or traditional

Floor covering – tiles or vinyl

Wall covering – tiles, painted, wood paneling

Accessories – toilet roll holder, towel rail, robe hook

  • How much does a main bathroom renovation cost?

    Lots of variables go into answering this question. They include

    • the size of the bathroom
    • the scope of the renovation (quantity of tiling etc)
    • is the layout changing or remaining the same
    • the selection budget (budget, medium, or high end tiles and sanitary ware)

    That being said, the typical main bathroom renovation that we carry out would fall into the €8,000 to €1,5000 range.

  • How long will it take?

    Smaller bathroom renovations can be completed in as little as one week with larger bathrooms usually taking no longer that two weeks. If there is other construction work involved (moving walls etc), timelines can increase further.

  • Will I have to move out?

    Provided you have an extra bathroom or ensuite that the whole family can use, you usually won’t have to move out. Even if you don’t have another bath/shower some families choose to stay put if showering at work/school/gym is an option.

  • I'm interested, what do I do next?

    Get in contact with us and we will arrange a site visit to go through your options. If you are happy to proceed to the design stage, we will both sign the design agreement and the process towards your new bathroom renovation can begin.
