Using hand cut tiles can help create a unique bathroom design finish.

There are so many different choices you can make when it comes to bathroom interior design selections. All the different elements have to create harmony with colours, textures & finishes, the tiling is no different. It is one of the rooms in a house where you can see different floor, wall or even feature wall tiling used.

What are hand cut tiles used for bathroom renovations?

Nu-Trend is a bathroom renovation company in Sydney that can work with owners to use products like hand cut tiles for small, medium or large bathroom spaces. For this renovation project the home owner had chosen hand cut tiles from Di Lorenzo Tiles which is a family owned and operated business in Sydney. They started trading back in 1983 selling products to the residential, commercial and retail market.

Their speciality is to import tiles from around the world which they have been doing for over 30 years. They have a focus on choosing products to provide in their range which are described as beautiful, glamorous and unique with many of them featured in the work interior design & architectural projects.

They source their range of hand cut tiles using inspiration from the latest fashion and design trends finding products from Italy, Spain, Asia, and the UAE.  The entire process of creating the tile is made by hand: cutting the tile, glazing, firing, and layout. This makes each tile unique, the slight variation in the overall design makes for a stunning layout that is both organic and intentional compared to machine made products which are identical.

If you want to create something unique when it comes to your bathroom interior design it becomes important to really consider the combination of products chosen very carefully. While it is easy to copy a look from Instagram or a home interiors magazine, truely valuable design will be unique and individual.

This is why we include an interior design bathroom consultation session with our renovation projects over $20,000 so that home owners can start their projects with confidence. An interior designer has the expertise and knowledge to listen to your renovation brief and come up with a mix of colours, materials in a design that will suit your needs.

Can a small bathroom renovation in Sydney use hand cut tiles?

Nu-Trend have been renovating small bathrooms in Sydney for many years & we work closely with the property owner on every project to make sure the style and design will suit their needs. In some cases people will already have their own ideas & in other projects an interior designer would have already been contracted to help manage the project.

If you are investing money into renovating your home then typically the focus will be to increase the value of the property. So renovating even a small bathroom that uses high quality interior design techniques will help to maximise the return on your investment.

An interior designer can help work out the right way to go about renovating a small bathroom, laundry or even kitchen to maximise the use of space, select the right mix of materials while keeping in mind the latest construction techniques. This can not only help create something that is unique, but it removes a lot of the stress relating to home renovating.

Best of all, your completed renovation project won’t look similar to other examples in magazines or on Instagram.

Here are some of our recent bathroom renovations in Sydney that Nu-Trend has completed. The majority of the projects we are contracted for are complete bathroom renovations where the room is completely stripped so that the flooring, walls, tiling and waterproofing is installed brand new.
