AK Gas and Plumbing are specialists in all types of complete bathroom renovations, from concept and design, to final installation of your selected fittings and accessories.
We organise and personally supervise everything from start to finish for your bathroom renovation. We work alongside a registered builder, which means we are not limited in the scope of works we can carry out, whereas many other renovators are.
We work with existing bathrooms and ensuites, or we can create new bathrooms in your property. But our renovating skills aren’t limited to bathrooms; we can also provide laundry builds and renovation, in conjunction with your bathroom.
Our team of fully qualified trades people have worked alongside us on hundreds of bathrooms, and we have a wide network of bathroom fitting and tile suppliers who are happy to assist you in selecting the ideal products for you.
Bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in a home. They can have a huge impact on your quality of life, and may greatly affect the resale value of your home. When it comes to bathroom renovations, it pays to do your research and get professional help. AK Gas and Plumbing has over thirty years combined experience in bathroom design and renovation. We follow the latest trends in bathrooms, but we are not slaves to fashion – we know what it takes to produce timeless classics.
When you open the door to your bathroom what do you see? Foggy mirrors, leaking taps, a toilet, perhaps? Bathrooms should be an inviting sanctuary with:
-Plenty of ventilation
-Loads of storage
-Plenty of natural light
-A feeling of privacy
-Easy clean and non-slip surfaces
-Quality fixtures and fittings
The sheer volume of materials available for bathroom renovations can be overwhelming, but take it one step at a time. Think about individual materials and how they complement or enhance your overall design.
Tiles are popular due to their durability, versatility and at times, breathtaking beauty. It’s important to choose carefully because your choice of tiles can make or break a bathroom.
Ceramic tiles are durable, easy to clean and come in an endless variety of colours and styles. They are resilient to moisture and stains, but can chip and scratch easily. Ceramics are a good choice for walls and low traffic areas.
Porcelain is low maintenance and practically waterproof, which makes it great for bathroom floors. Porcelain tiles cost more, but they are incredibly resistant to moisture, staining and wear, making them perfect for high traffic areas.
Luxury and sophistication go hand in hand with natural stone, however like so many beautiful things in life, they are costly and high maintenance. Natural stone is porous and best used sparingly as a contrast to porcelain or ceramic tiles.
Paints should ideally be high-gloss, semi-gloss or satin finish with inbuilt mould resistance to counter the humid conditions of a Brisbane summer. Colour schemes should create a calm, soothing environment suggesting cleanliness and privacy. For example, pale blues and greens combined with natural stone will create a space that invites relaxation. We understand how to get the most out of your chosen palette – natural, cool, warm, rich or entirely individual – you decide!
Quality tapware, a stunning bathroom vanity or amazing lighting options can make the difference between a beautiful bathroom and a stunning space. We can offer advice on the best fittings for your bathroom, and put you in touch with reputable suppliers of quality fittings and fixtures in the Brisbane area. Be sure to choose wisely because quality never goes out of fashion.
