Your Renovation Design
Renovations may include an overhaul (improvement of some aspects of the room) or a complete reconfiguration (structural changes to the room). This degree of scope depends on the design, objectives and budget of the completed project.
Our team can help by advancing your ideas into a design suitable for your goals, and also discuss alternative approaches to improve the cost and functionality of the new spaces.
A renovation is a combination of decisions, selections, and actions. Before any work can begin, it’s important to decide what kind of room you’d like to achieve. A great idea is to create a mood board of ideas from magazines, pinterest, or other sources.
This gives you something to base discussions on your renovation, compare and make decisions. With our experience, we can also help adapt your ideas to your budget and explore possibilities that will work for your renovation goals.
It is important to remember that some of the features you see in kitchens and bathrooms online may not be easily available in the Gold Coast. However, there are enough options to create great solutions – talk to our team and we’ll help you create the bathroom of your dreams.

Budgeting For Your Renovation
Depending on how you approach your renovation, it’s important to develop a clear understanding of the costs and your responsibilities in the project.
Armrock Constructions provides a complete renovation service with all required trades for your project and we will provide a quote for your job.
In addition to our quote, be sure to take into account any external costs that may be required – for example, if you are taking on the acquisition of fixtures and fittings, or outsourcing a component of the project to another provider.
There’s some useful information about budgeting available from consumer.gov, which you can read about here.
Understanding the Project
Every renovation is different, but broadly speaking, projects have three stages – planning, demolition, and construction. What’s especially important through the entire project is making sure your areas of responsibility are actioned on time. If you’re choosing fixtures, fittings and tiles, make sure it’s done well in advance so that they’re ready on time.
The Planning Stage
The planning stage entails the steps up until the demolition commences. In a renovation project, successfully preparing is key. This stage includes aspects such as:
- Project Planning
- Fixtures & Fittings
- Discussing & Deciding
Remember, our team is here to help. We’re experienced renovators and can help with all aspects of the project as your require.
Selecting Fixtures, Fittings and Tiles
We encourage our clients to select their own fixtures, fittings and tiles so that you can compare items and prices as well as to view them in action. However, if you’d like Armrock to take on this role, just discuss it with us at your consultation.
We can help by providing you with reputable local suppliers to visit and also by suggesting specific items or brands to look for. Learn more about tiling for your renovation here.
The Demolition Stage
Generally, renovations begin with demolition process commensurate with the scope of the renovation you’re undertaking – the bigger the renovation, the bigger the demolition. Demolition involves deconstructing the old kitchen or bathroom and removing the waste. It can be a noisy process!
We approach demolition in different ways depend on our clients’ requirements, and will clarify our role in this process when we quote your renovation.
The Construction Stage
We’ll efficiently and effectively complete the project.
The renovation includes the systematic construction and installation of your chosen structure, fixtures, fittings and tiles to make your new bathroom or kitchen into a reality.
Armrock makes this process easy for you by providing all of the necessary trades for your job, including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, tiling, cabinetry, plastering, painting & shower-screen installation.
Our team works together to complete the project as efficiently as possible.
