Contemporary Bathroom Design Northern Beaches & North Shore
Having a modern bathroom design is one of the best ways to make your home more attractive to buyers, tenants, family and guests. All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens know how to transform bathrooms to increase the value of properties on the Northern Beaches and North Shore.
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens started their journey in the bathroom design and kitchen design business as Nobby’s Kitchens in 1984. The business was originally based in Green St Brookvale and has stayed in the local area throughout the years. The director, Victoria, has many years of experience in the industry working with home owners, investment property owners and real estate agents. You'll benefit from Victoria's long established relationships with reliable and cost-effective suppliers. You also have the flexibility to renovate just one room, a couple of rooms or the whole house.
In 1990 current owner Victoria joined her parents in the business. In 1998 the business moved to Dale St Brookvale which is when Nobby’s Kitchens became All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens.
After 30 years in the business, Victoria’s parents retired from All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens in 2014. As the new owner, Victoria modernised the All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens business model by closing the showroom and working from home.
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens is one of the most contemporary bathroom shops on Northern Beaches due to Victoria's modern business practices and personalised service.
The internet has introduced improvements for briefing design projects which has eliminated the need for a showroom.
Innovative home renovation resources such as Pinterest, Houzz and others allow home owners to search bathroom ideas and kitchen ideas from around the world so that they can put together truly custom room designs.
Victoria is the sole owner of All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens and project manages her team of tradesmen.
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens are a contemporary renovation specialist and are generally business to consumer.
“I don't work very much with builders. I don't get into multi-construction projects."
“I work with people who are renovating their homes. Mainly home owners and unit owners and people who own investment properties.”
When you're looking for a home renovation specialist, you want to work with a company that are experienced, efficient and keep up with the times.
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens is based in Narrabeen and is accessible to the Northern Beaches and North Shore of Sydney.
The easy way to update your old bathroom to a contemporary bathroom design
Once the bathroom design and quote are approved, Victoria puts together a schedule of work.
The schedule outlines how the job will proceed and who will be coming to the premises and on what day.
The work is then assigned to Victoria's team of tradesmen who carry out the work.
Victoria is in contact with her tradesmen constantly.
“I go to the job and check that everything is working and that everything is as it should be."
“All my tradies have been with me long-term now."
“As of 2017 my carpenter has been with me for about 9 years now. My plumber about 5 years. The electrician has been with me for 20 odd years now. Tiler is probably about 7 years."
“So my tradies stay with me.”
All Style Bathroom and Kitchen tradesmen are licensed.
The tradespeople turn up when they’re asked to.
There's no waiting around.
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens deliver bathroom designs with the wow factor
“When it comes to tiles, I prefer the client goes and chooses their own tiles."
“Because the tiles are really what makes the bathroom.”
Maybe you want a simple modern look with plain tiles.
Or you might want to have a pattern on the floor tiles.
“Some people want diamonds… There's just so many tiles to choose from, it's unbelievable.”
It's a very personal preference.
The client also has the option for Victoria to go shopping with them. She can go with the client when they're choosing products and help guide the process.
“If they want help for whatever reason I am also available to go choose tiles. There's no extra charge for shopping assistance.”
When a client signs up with All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens, Victoria is available to them throughout the project for whatever they need.
What kinds of products do All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens sell?
Because of Victoria’s long term relationship with suppliers, she knows her products well and knows that they are quality products.
“I don't get callbacks on the products. It's rare that I get a call back because a tap’s leaking or something like that."
“I trust the products I put in. I've never had an issue and that's why I like them because they’re a really good price and I don't have any issues.”
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens product range are made in China, but Victoria says it's important to understand the industry before you're put off by generic brands.
When it comes to brands, whether it’s tapware or toilets, people generally tend to have a higher regard for brands that are positioned in the market as ‘premium’.
“But what the average person doesn't realise is that no matter where the imprint on the product says it comes from, there's about a 90% chance that somewhere in the production process it's been made in China.”
Some so-called premium brands are made in China.
“That's why I'm getting my products cheaper. Because they aren’t name brand as such.”
Victoria says another reason she likes the products are because they are a nice design. And when the style of the times change, the supplier changes with it.
“The designers bring in new products, and they get the latest stuff into their product catalogue and they get rid of the old, outdated stuff."
“So it's constantly changing, and it’s well priced.”
When you buy products from All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens, you're covered by all the standard warranties.
“You've got a 12 month warranty on all tapware. Some brands have a 5 year warranty. It just depends what the client likes, I'll give them the various options.”
Some people just have a look and pick what they want.
“People with rental units will just say put in nice stuff that looks good.”
But if it's for someone's own home they’ll want specific products.
“The client will say ‘I want white square products or whatever it might be.’"
“Rosegold seems to be the latest trend. The client will say I want to have a rosegold tapware set.”
Victoria can access all the specific types of details you may want at good prices as opposed to a retailer where it's pretty much the same but they charge five times more.
“For all our renovations, we have a warranty that covers defective work. If the construction work was defective, it gets fixed.
“This industry is basically labour, so it's a labour warranty against defective work.”
What are your options when you haven't got a bathroom for two weeks?
When the bathroom is out of use during your renovation, Victoria can provide you with a convenient option if you prefer not to leave your home.
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens has a mobile bathroom available for hire at an affordable price, which has a shower, toilet and vanity.
“It’s more for freestanding houses rather than units, because units generally don't have the space for it.
“My clients can hire that if they want. If a client wants to hire it, it can save them money.”
Where the mobile ensuite is useful is when the client is in a freestanding house.
“It's cheaper than going to a motel.”
When you renovate a bathroom your toilet is out first and it's one of the last items to go back in. So if you've only got one toilet the house, you don't have a toilet. You've got it out for two weeks at least.
Perhaps you have a good neighbour or you decide to move into mum’s place or someone else's home for a period of time where you can have showers and use the bathroom.
But if you prefer to stay onsite during the renovations and you’ve only got the one bathroom, hiring the mobile facility may suit you.
“Hiring the ensuite is a lot cheaper then going and staying in a motel."
“With the set up the client has got to have the space for it. We’ve got to be able to get to water, sewage line and power."
“As long as we can get to those, we can put it in the front yard, backyard, driveway, where ever they want it.”
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens make the process of bathroom design quick and easy
Every bathroom is different. As for bathroom designs, a lot of how your renovated bathroom is going to look it will depend on the products that you choose.
“The work I do doesn't make the bathroom look beautiful. What makes the bathroom beautiful are the tiles.”
Victoria says tiles are what makes the design of the bathroom more than anything.
“That's what really gives the bathroom the wow factor."
“Sometimes I just provide the labour. And then the client will just go and buy the items as per my list."
“My list will specify the vanity has to be this big, you need so many metres of tiles, you need this type of toilet.”
Victoria tells the client what they need and then they can go buy it from wherever they want if that's what they want to do.
“People are busy these days. They don't want to go shopping for hours on end looking for a tap."
“I would say most people prefer that I take care of everything for them because their lives are so busy.”
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens create bathroom designs that attract repeat clients
If you're local to the Northern Beaches you may have seen All Style Bathrooms and Kitchen in local print advertising.
However, the best type of marketing is word of mouth.
Word of mouth marketing is great for potential clients of a business as they can be confident they are going with a trusted renovator to do their contemporary bathroom design.
“I'm doing a job at the moment, I've been doing jobs for this particular client for around 15 or 20 years."
“The job I'm doing now… We did the bathroom 12 years ago. We’re now redoing the bathroom again because they want to update to a modern bathroom in line with current times."
“That's just one client but, I get a lot of repeat business and referral business."
“When mum and dad have had the bathroom or kitchen done, then the son or daughter or the nephew will say ‘Oh I need mine done too, who did yours?’ And because the client is happy, they will refer my name to them. It's important that my clients are happy.”
All Style Bathrooms and Kitchens will provide you with bathroom design that will leave you feeling satisfied with choosing an experienced home renovator.
