It should come as no surprise that Bathroom renovations are one of the most popular home renovations in Australia, even with their expensive price tag.
Houzz’s Australian Houzz & Home survey results offer some interesting insights on bathroom renovations here in Australia. This survey reveals that the master bathroom is the third most renovated room of a home (17%), behind the living/family room (23%) and the kitchen (25%).
So, if you’re planning an upcoming bathroom renovation, then you certainly won’t be the only one to do so. There is perhaps no-better gift to yourself in terms of renovating than to create the dream bathroom you’ve always wanted.
But before you start your bathroom renovation, there are several things to consider. And, if you’ve never renovated a bathroom before, then you probably don’t know what products you need. Don’t worry, though – I’m here to help you out.
As the head of purchasing at Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Perth, I deal with customers looking for bathroom products day after day. Today, I’ll list some must-have items that you should consider for your Perth bathroom renovation. I’ll also offer a few product recommendations you can get from us, so make sure you read right through until the end!

1. Double vanity
Nothing exudes luxury like a double vanity! Plus, they give me and my wife the freedom of having our own space in the bathroom… because heaven forbid I leave my shaving cream on my wife’s vanity! With a double vanity, you and your partner can have your own sinks to your preference.
Double vanities are far more lavish than single vanities. Sure, single vanities may be the popular option, but there’s no denying that a double vanity can add charm, flair and functionality to any bathroom.
At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, we offer a huge selection of bathroom vanities in Perth. Of our range of vanities, I recommend you to consider our Brianna PVC Vanity. This gorgeous vanity unit is also available in a 1500 double vanity option. Alternatively, you can also consider the refined Maddison Vanity, a very popular double vanity in our store. Either of these vanities will make for the perfect addition to any Perth bathroom renovation.
If you’re anything like me, then you loathe the sight of an overcrowded and cluttered bathroom. Here’s where bathroom storage comes into the picture. Storage is a must-have in any bathroom – it allows you to store all your essentials easily and effectively – and OUT OF SIGHT! With adequate storage, you can transform your bathroom into a cleaner, neater and more attractive space.
When it comes to bathroom storage options, many people consider open shelving or towel racks. However, bathroom cabinets are a far better option for storage. They hide your essentials out of sight and make a bathroom appear cleaner and spacier. As an alternative to cabinets, you can always choose a large-sized vanity that offers storage space as well.
Tip: When planning your storage requirements, consider everything in your bathroom, not just towels and toiletries.
At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, we offer both vanities and cabinets as bathroom storage solutions. If you’re looking for a cabinet, consider our Charli Tall Boy. This largely sized cabinet will definitely solve your storage problems for good. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a vanity with storage, consider our Belford Vanity Unit with side cabinets. This vanity unit offers added space in the side cabinets for you to store your essentials.
For many, a bath isn’t really considered to be an essential bathroom product. However, if you have a large space, you must definitely consider installing a bath and a shower. Not only is a bath an absolute must-have product for your Perth bathroom renovation, but it also offers great visual appeal. Even if you use a dedicated shower space, having a bath will instantly make your bathroom much more appealing.
There is no doubt that a bath will add a touch of luxury to any space, so if you have space, it shouldn’t be overlooked. And, if space is a constraint, you can always go for a freestanding bath instead of a full-sized one. In fact, with a freestanding bath, you’re not just limited to your bathroom – you can install it anywhere!
At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, you can find some really stylish baths in Perth. Check out our Galaxy Oval Freestanding Bath and our Elisabeth Clawfoot Bath. Either of these popular products will completely transform your bathroom renovation.
4. Ceramic shower tiles
If you are planning a dedicated shower area for your new bathroom, why not make the most of it? You can easily make your shower space the focal point of your bathroom by using ceramic shower tiles; they offer a great blend of style and practicality and are a great choice for shower floors and walls. This makes them another must-have product for your Perth bathroom renovation.
However, the primary reason to choose ceramic shower tiles is that they are resistant to fungi and bacteria. Ceramic tiles are naturally resistant to moisture, and they can prevent your shower space from accumulating moulds, bacteria and pathogens. They are also incredibly easy to clean, and they require absolutely no maintenance at all.
Ross’s Discount Home Centre is your one-stop shop for all kinds of ceramic tiles in Perth. Of our large selection of shower tiles, consider our Charm Arabescato if you’re looking for ceramic tiles with a light finish. For a darker finish, you can consider our Celina Charcoal ceramic tile. While our Charm Arabescato is suitable for shower walls and floors, our Celina Charcoal is suitable for shower floors. Consider whether you want ceramic tiles both on your walls and floors before you make a purchase.
5. Handheld shower
The hand held shower head is another must-have product for your Perth bathroom renovation. Although it isn’t generally considered to be essential, it can add immense functionality to a renovated bathroom. For instance, when using showerheads, you need to gyrate your body to get water to all parts. However, with a handheld shower, you need not do so – you can simply move the handheld shower wherever you need.
Furthermore, modern handheld showers come with a variety of features. From water flow control to massagers and water spray heads, handheld showers can include several features to improve functionality. Another benefit offered by handheld showers is that they make a shower space easier to clean.
At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, we offer a range of handheld showers that are a must for any bathroom renovation. I recommend that you consider our Project Hand Shower/ Rail Set and our Project Handheld Shower. Both of these products include twin shower heads and offer exceptional water efficiency.
6. Shower Head
As an alternative to a handheld shower, a showerhead is a must-have! A good showerhead can completely rejuvenate your bathing experience. They will add great functionality to your bathroom and will also enhance the look of your space. And that’s not all – the investment will also be worth it if you ever plan on selling your home.
For the best quality shower heads for your Perth home renovations, look no further than us at Ross’s Discount Home Centre. We offer an extensive selection of shower heads in various classic, modern and contemporary styles. Of our range, I’d like you to consider our Cube Shower Head (Satin Black), which comes in a trendy finish and our standard Cube Shower Head which comes in a chrome finish. Both are stylish, extremely functional and highly water efficient as well.
If you are planning a master bathroom renovation in Perth, there are several must-have bathroom products to consider for your renovation. These products are a double vanity, storage cabinets, bath (freestanding or standard), ceramic shower tiles, handheld showers and showerheads. By including these items in your bathroom renovation, you will have a bathroom that you truly love.
