Renovating in a Federation style is a popular choice

Nu-Trend is a local renovation contractor that specialises in bathroom renovations in Sydney. We can help you renovate any style of bathroom that you can imagine, just find inspiration from magazines, interior design websites or other locations. 

A Federation style interior designed bathroom typically combines tiled floors with a bold pattern and tiled walls that have a border. Most bathrooms in this style will feature a free standing bath, sink, toilet and lots of contrast with elements of timber. It is quite a sophisticated look with a touch of grandeur that can suit older homes in particular.

Although these days there are quite a few modern products like taps or vanities that have a Federation ‘look’ but they are made with the latest materials.

Federation bathrooms have remained popular for one very good reason, they are simply beautiful and create a sense of luxury in your bathroom quite like no other style. Federation styled bathrooms not only provide that classic look and feel of yesteryear, they allow a more opulent style. This type of bathroom opens up options for an intricate tiling design with the use of tessellated, feature, capping and skirting tiles and is commonly seen with a distinctive patterned tiled floor.


When considering federation style bathrooms, claw baths, antique mirrors and tapware come to mind, although it is a matter of preference as to how true to the nostalgic design to be. Many homeowners simply wish to add a hint of antique styling to their bathrooms by incorporating a just a few aspects of federation style with say perhaps tapware, mirror or floor tiling.


Whether adding just a hint of nostalgia or recreating a complete period style bathroom, federation bathrooms are truly stunning and will create a sense of luxury in your home.


There are lots of local suppliers in Sydney that specialise in Federation style products and materials that can be used for renovating. One of them is Old English Tiles who carry a wide range of products, but also provide lots of advice for creating the ‘look’
