For modern bathroom remodels in Sydney we create a simple 2D and 3D virtual mock up of your room to help get the project started quickly. We can take your ideas & combine them with the room layout to create a simple visual interpretation of the bathroom before we begin demolishing. This information can then be used to do the planning and keep track of your remodel project. While this isn’t as accurate or as detailed as hiring an interior designer it does help compared to using drawings on paper.

You can also do it yourself by using the various free or paid bathroom remodel planning tools that are available online. Either way it is better than working from a sheet of paper and handwritten sketches or notes. By going to this level of effort it can make sure you choose the right bathroom remodel services that are required for your specific site.

Want a bathroom remodel company in Sydney with great reviews?

Working with Rick and Rob has been an absolute pleasure. They are easy to work with, warm spirited yet professional and eager to please clients and architects alike.

Their attitude and work displays their belief that there is no job too small or too great for them.

We would be very keen to work with them again on upcoming projects and would recommend them to anyone.
Brooke
"The Nu-Trend team have just completed my bathroom renovation and did an outstanding job. They don’t cut corners and everything is done to the highest standards.

Rick is very, very responsive and I felt comfortable discussing any concerns that I had with him - he and his team did everything that they could possibly do to keep me happy.

Chris and Robbie were onsite getting their hands dirty as well as managing external trades and I can not speak highly enough if these guys.
Very professional, respectful, always smiling, very polite and more than happy to answer my questions. I am so happy with how the bathroom has turned out - thank you Nu-Trend!"
Lon
"I had Rick and Nu-Trend completely renovate the small bathroom my three teenage kids share. Rick was on board with my ideas from the start and with the help of his many years in the business the bathroom was transformed into a sophisticated and functional space.

Rick and the boys could not do enough to help whether it be recommending where to buy bathware or offering trade discounts where they could.

They always left the house immaculate after a days work. I will definitely use them again."
tania
"Rick came highly recommended and his professional friendly manner makes him a pleasure to deal with.

His time and advice has been invaluable and I look forward to working with him on my bathroom re-do as he has instilled me with great confidence."
Kate
"We had a wonderful experience with Nutrend. Planning and executing renovations is not an easy task, what Nutrend makes it easy for you.

Rick and his team are dedicated persons that will help you navigate through all the steps of the reno without hassle.

They also reacted quickly when we had to make modifications to the original plan, ensuring that the project didn't get delayed. I highly recommend Nutrend. "
Fernando
"Over the last 2 years Ricky and Robbie from Nu-trend have been the hero's of our renovation. They came in at the 11th hour and ruffed out all our pipes before the slab got poured.

From that day onwards they have been the most reliable, honest and friendly tradies we've had. Dealing with them is painless and honestly a relief.

Their attention to details with fitting off is spot on. Couldn't be more happier and highly recommend."

See our free bathroom remodelling advice

A lot of bathroom remodelling companies will put beautiful photos of bathrooms on their website, but most of the time they are stock library images purchased from the internet. If you really want to understand how good the renovating company is then try and look for examples of their work, how they solve problems or complete projects. 

What you will quickly discover is many of these companies don’t do any of this, so how do you know how good they really are? At Nu-Trend we provide free bathroom renovation advice, tips & insights to help you better understand how to go about renovating your bathroom the right way.

There are lots of bathroom installation companies in Sydney but not all of them are equal, make sure you can see some reno before and after examples that look legitimate or even show their contractors on the site.

Common questions about getting a bathroom remodelled

Getting a quote to build a new bathroom in Sydney is relatively straight forward as there are many bathroom contractors to choose from. The majority of renovation companies will provide a free bathroom quote once they get to see the home and what might be needed. Some will provide a renovation package or some other options fo you to choose from to make things easier to get started.

Quotes for bathroom renovation are all about paying very careful attention to all the details to make sure you are comparing the same inclusions and scope of work.

Normally a complete bathroom remodel means you are completely stripping the room back to the framework of the building to build an entirely new bathroom. It means that everything from the flooring, walls and tiling is installed as new. This might even include changing the floor plan to create a different layout.

No, Nu-Trend does not do bathroom remodels in 5 days, our projects will take between 14 and 28 days normally. The types of remodels that take only 5 days to complete might only include things like painting, changing taps or maybe re-surfacing the tiles, they are not complete remodels of the whole room.

It is impossible to answer what does it cost to do a complete bathroom remodel. On average a complete bathroom remodel will cost between $20,000 and $40,000 for a medium-sized room.

The reason there is such a wide price gap is there are millions of choices when it comes to tiling, products & types of properties.

Depending on the amount of labour required & the products you choose your costs will vary.

For example, some bathtubs can cost $5,000 and others are $600.

Our most common question is ‘what are the bathroom renovation steps‘ or ‘how long does a full bathroom remodel take‘ and the answer really is ‘it depends’. Every site has different requirements, but normally a full renovation will take up to three weeks to complete. 

The steps include;

  • Planning, layout and design.
  • Floor and wall demolition.
  • Rubbish removal.
  • New flooring, walls, waterproofing.
  • Floor or wall tiling installation.
  • Moving pipes or services.
  • Changing the floor plan.
  • Installing a new shower or bath.
  • Painting, electrical and windows.

A bathroom remodel quote might relate specifically to getting an interior designer or an architect to design a new bathroom. You will get a quote from them to visit your home, come up with some design ideas and then present drawings for inspiration so you can choose a new bathroom design that you like.

Normally they will include an initial consultation, a selected number of variation rounds and then final plans, site drawings and mock ups either drawn by hand or using 3D virtual design software. Getting a bathroom design might cost between $500 and $2,500 depending on the designer that you use.

Some people will use the term bathroom design quote but mean bathroom remodel quote where the contractor will help build the design you have in mind. Some remodel contractors in Sydney have their own in-house designers or can replicate design ideas from magazines or other sources.

Getting an accurate bathroom remodel quotation requires a very clear scope of work that each renovation contractor can quote to. If the details you provide are vague or you give slightly different information to each person doing the quotes, then you’ll end up with a confusing situation where none of the quotations coming back are representing the same scope of work.

  1. Clearly define the room / space that has to be renovated.
  2. Decide if it will be done in the existing wall structure or the room has to be made larger.
  3. Confirm if all existing plumbing, electrical, lighting, doors and windows will remain as they are or not.
  4. Confirm the products that will need to be installed.

By clarifying those key items the renovation contractor can then accurately estimate the labour involved to then provide a quotation for the work to be completed. If you do this with each company then all of their quotes will be comparable. Your decision-making will then be based on the value they provide & how you feel about engaging them as your contractor.

Nu-Trend is a bathrom remodel company in Sydney that can provide a free quotation to renovate your bathroom to make it bigger. We will visit your home to look at the rooms or other spaces available to be able to move, adjust or remove existing walls to make your bathroom bigger. This could be done by taking space from a bedroom, the hallway, removing a linen cupboard or converting a laundry into a combined bathroom.

A personal renovation service.

Bespoke bathroom remodels

Nu-Trend is a bathroom renovation company that will work closely with you to do bathroom remodels. Instead of a complete renovation a remodel is a light refresh of your existing room.

You deal directly with the owners of the business who have more than 10 years experience, over 100 written reviews and they provide a written guarantee without any gimmicks.

They have a very single minded commitment to deliver a high level of professionalism and quality. To achieve this they use industry leading brands to create modern designs for your bathroom with products from Caroma, Victoria and Albert, DADO, Pietra Bianca, Saboma and others.

Emma Snodgrass

Add value to your home with a bathroom remodel.

A bathroom remodel is normally a choice people make when they have a combination of limited time, budget or don’t require a full renovation to a room. Typically people would make this choice when they are;

  • Moving into an old house or unit.

     

  • Getting ready to prepare a property for sale.

     

  • Giving a rental property a quick refresh.

     

  • Have limited time of 2-3 weeks.

     

  • Want to spend a limited budget of less than $15,000.

Nu-Trend can help with a bathroom remodel in a single or multi-storey house, unit, townhouse or apartment. Our team can assist you to planning the steps and working through the choices available to meet the brief for the room. For a remodel you would typically be working with the existing walls, ceiling, windows and flooring and replacing the existing items with new ones. 

Our team can manage each step of the process for you from removing everything, sourcing the new products to all the finishing touches like painting, electricals and installation of vanity, basin, bath, shower and/or toilet depending on what is required.

10 tips to save on a bathroom remodel

#1. DO YOUR RESEARCH

When you are considering doing a bathroom remodel the first step is to do some research about what is involved, the various costs and to gather inspiration or ideas. There is lots of information available that will help you save money and time choosing your new bath.

#2. WORK OUT YOUR BUDGET

Yes it is true, you could spend over $30,000 on a bathroom remodel or as little as $500 for a splash of paint. There are millions of choices of products, materials or styles to choose from so it becomes fairly critical to be realistic and set a budget, then stick to it. Otherwise you can end up either creating false expectations or spending time researching things that you haven’t prepared to pay for.

#3. HAVE A CLEAR VISION

With a wealth of information available and a budget set, it becomes very important to have a very clear vision or purpose for the renovation. It becomes a brief that you use with your contractor. So is the goal to renovate for profit, sell the property, get it ready for renting or just give it  a freshen up? The reasons could be broad but you should have a clear purpose in mind from the outset to guide your decision making. 

#4. KNOW WHAT CAN OR CAN'T BE DONE

A little similar to the setting of a budget, knowing what is or isn’t possible becomes important to ensure you are being realistic about what can be achieved. So for example placing a 400kg bath tub in a 10th storey apartment unit may not be feasible or moving a pipe in heritage listed building could be too costly too.

#5. create a plan

With some knowledge, a budget ready and clear vision you can set about creating a plan to map out the steps required for your project. This could include things like getting a loan approved, sourcing products, getting council approvals, finding contractors etc but make a list of things that will need to be done and a rough timeframe to work around.

#6. CHEAPEST ISN'T ALWAYS THE BEST

Yes unfortunately costs for a bathroom remodel will vary greatly, there could be variances of $10,000 or more. Cheapest isn’t always the best and it is important to make sure any quotation is clearly itemised so that you can compare exactly what is being offered. We see too many examples where assumptions are made that lead to further costs or work not being done correctly the first time.

#7. DECIDE ON USING EXISTING SERVICES

This could potentially be an earlier step in the process, it just depends on the situation. Deciding on whether you will use the existing plumbing and sewerage services becomes quite important in relation to bath placement or orientation, the type of bath and how the floor needs to be prepared.

#8. GET 5 WRITTEN QUOTATIONS

Yes we realise many people will opt for just getting 3 quotes, although with such a large renovation project it would be wise these days to opt for at least 5 quotations from qualified companies. It will help create peace of mind given there are over 1,000 renovation companies to choose from in Sydney.

#9. READ PREVIOUS REVIEWS

While reviews aren’t always entirely accurate it does pay to spend some time reading about the contractors you are thinking of working with. The ones that have longer, more thoughtfully written reviews will tend to be the ones that have impressed their clients more. Always look for ‘how many reviews’ the individual has written this can also be an indicator of someone who has been impressed with the work done.

#10. CHECK THEIR QUALIFICATIONS

This is one of the simplest things people often forget to do. Don’t trust numbers, words or logos on a website. Ask the contractor to give you the link or certificate or other form of proof they are actually qualified to do the work. We see so many people believe ‘official-looking’ logos placed on a website only to find out later they were being deceptive.

We don't just repair, we find the cause

It is pretty easy to clear a blockage inside the plumbing, although what is more important is to understand what the actual cause was. Too many plumbers in Sydney take the quick way, clear the immediate problem and rush off to the next job. For lots of locations this can mean the pipes will get blocked again because the underlying issue causing the problems isn’t being addressed.

We don’t take shortcuts, we make sure you completely understand what is happening with your bathroom or kitchen plumbing so you can make an educated decision on how to proceed with repairs. We have the same ethos if you are the property owner, real estate agent, tenant or business owner.

Sydney plumbing company

  • Bathroom (vanity, shower or bathtub)

Blocked bathroom drain repairs

The reality is plumbing is the one system that you rely on everyday, just like electricity. It keeps a home or business clean, hygienic, virus free and safe. It enables you to cook, clean and do many other things we take for granted.  Without plumbing you’d have no hot water, no gas to cook with, no flush for your toilets, no swimming pools or no air conditioning.

We can inspect your bathroom plumbing and repair any drains that are blocked wether it is a vanity, shower or the bath tub. We’ll even look into the waste pipe plumbing to see if there are any underlying issues in your system.

Blocked toilet plumbing repairs

Your toilet can get blocked with there are too many large objects flushed into the plumbing system like paper products, toilet paper or other items. This can build up over time and prevent water from flowing freely. In other cases there could be cracks in the plumbing that lets tree roots growing inside them and block the openings. 

Our team of plumbers are able to do a CCTV drain pipe plumbing inspection to see exactly what is happening. We don’t guess and we don’t just provide quick fixes – we make sure you know the complete picture.

Blocked shower drain repairs

The shower is the second or third most used item in any home and the drain is constantly dealing with all types of water waste. Human hair is normally the first thing that will block a shower drain, it gets tangled and mixed with soap scum or other debris that can block the plumbing.

We can clear the blockage and clean your plumbing with our high pressure jet blasting equipment to remove anything that is stuck inside the pipes.

Blocked drain & plumbing inspections

Ask your plumber if they have a CCTV digital camera inspection tool so they can see inside your plumbing. If they don’t, then how can they possibly get to the real cause of your blockage?

It might be easy to quickly clear a blockage but a camera inspection can make sure there is no other underlying issue that might cause the plumbing to get blocked quickly again.

Some plumbers might not offer this because it means they will get another call out a few months down the track. Avoid the cost & hassle by demanding a proper inspection.

Plumbing repairs & replacement

In the most extreme cases a blocked plumbing might need to be replaced. You would be surprised to know that many of the sites we attend have incorrectly installed plumbing systems.

What some plumbers will do is take shortcuts & not install the plumbing to meet Australian building standards. While it might be possible for the system to function, it will never perform the way it is intended to by using the requirements of the building standards.

So it means that at some point an issue will occur & in those situations we can remove an existing system or install a new one that is designed to meet the correct requirements. This will ensure you do not experience issues in the future, or at least, reduce your chances of further problems.

What can we clear from drains?

We’ve seen lots of things inside drains when we have used our CCTV camera system and they have included;

  • Tampons and sanitary pads
  • Teabags or grease
  • Dead animals like rats
  • Cat heads
  • Syringes and nappies. 
 

These items have been put down a kitchen sink, toilet or down a shower drain and needed a repair to clear the plumbing system.

Stormwater drain repairs

If you have a stormwater drain that is blocked it is critical to get it fixed before there is another heavy downpour of rain. These are typically the biggest forms of water drainage for any property, especially car parks, and are designed to handle large volumes of water, so if they get blocked that water will make its way into house foundations, garages or even inside your house depending on the topography of the land.

Most cases we will treat a stormwater drain blockage as an emergency and our team can be at your site in around an hour to try and get it fixed by unblocking it.

Most stormwater drains in Sydney get blocked by debris like rubbish, grass cuttings or other large items that people leave on the street that get washed into gutters easily. It is important to remember these drain systems are connected to a building’s sewer system and could cause problems for toilets, showers & other parts of a property.

How do we unblock drains?

There isn’t a single, most common, reason for a blockage but we do follow a tried and tested process to quickly assess, clear & summarise each situation. Our highly trained tradesman can generally fix a blocked vanity sink, toilet or kitchen drain fairly quickly with a bit of manual labour and plunging. More complicated issues might need our 5,000 kpa high pressure hot or cold water jet blasting tools that can literally cut through things like tree roots, grease or food scraps.

For each job we attend to our team brings a range of tools including our highly advanced locating equipment that can pinpoint the location of an issue. For the most extreme blockages a specific area might need to be excavated to fix the plumbing. Our team can quickly explain the underlying issue with a choice of repair options.

Some clients will choose to have a short term repair & then be prepared to have this done again in six or twelve months time when the issues re-occurs. In those situations we do offer regular maintenance options for monthly or quarterly checks. In other situations our team have plenty of experience doing plumbing dig ups & replacements.

Common questions

Every property has lots of drains in different rooms including kitchen, shower, laundry, garage and even in the backyard. All of these connect to the underground piping so if a section gets blocked it can effect the way other drains operate. You will usually notice things like the toilet having a low water level, water drains slowly in the sinks, there is a foul smell near the area around drain or there are gurgling noises as a sink is emptying of water. 

If you get a completely blockage that stops all the water from flowing completely then we can visit your location to inspect the drain. Sometimes we can tell what has happened with a visual inspection & for harder to find problems we will use our CCTV Drain Camera to physically look inside the piping to show you what is in there.

We know that many people might not believe the plumber when they say there is a drainage problem. To avoid any doubts we can literally show you what is inside your pipes so you can see the blockage for yourself. 

Our camera equipment can be pushed deep inside the plumbing of your property to see what condition it is in, if there are items blocking the flow of water or even if there is damaged piping that needs to be repaired.

By being able to see in side the pipe we can accurately assess what the issue is & give you the right advice to repair or replace the elements that are not functioning correctly.

Not all plumbers in Sydney have this equipment and might be guessing as to what the issue is, but we avoid all of the doubt by showing you.

For simple blockages like a blocked toilet or kitchen drain, the cost will be between $80 inc gst to $200 inc gst for us to visit your location & clear it. There can be situations where we discover the blockage is more serious where there is something deeper in the plumbing system that needs more time or equipment to reach it, for those situations the average cost will be between $200 inc gst and $500 inc gst. 

 

Either way we can assess and advise you before any work is completely, our focus is to fix the immediate problem but show you what the solution is to prevent it from occurring again. Drains that get blocked are pretty common and if they aren’t repaired things like a collapsed sewer line can cause all kinds of problems later.

 

Other plumbing companies in Sydney will have pretty photos on their website and a list of promises. Nu-Trend is a bit different, we also show you behind the scenes from some of our plumbing jobs so you can see the work our team does & how we solve plumbing problems for property owners.

 

Blocked drains, toilets, and sinks may not seem like much of a problem at first, but ignoring them puts your property at risk for water damage. In addition to disrupting your daily routine, the presence of standing water in your residential or commercial property can negatively impact your health and business. There are many causes for drainage blockages including a build-up of debris in the pipes, collapsed drains, and even tree roots that have made their way into the plumbing system. Once we have cleared the blockage we will ascertain the cause and have a full idea of the extent of the issue, we’ll decide on the best course of action to solve it and take steps to prevent it from happening again.

Slow draining water in sinks can be a sign of a blocked bath pipe, clogged shower drain or blocked waste pipes. As water pools, it drains slowly and can’t get through the pipes quickly. The blocked sink may worsen as soap, hair, food or oil continues to clog the drain which could result in flooding. To prevent clogged pipes getting worse you should try to remove the blockage or have a qualified plumber inspect it.
Low water level – a blocked toilet? A clear sign of a clogged toilet drain or sewer pipes is low toilet water levels or flushing with high bowl water height. Sometimes this can be a really slow draining toilet that is caused by a clog in the drain. These are critical to fix because a clogged toilet drain could lead to an overflow of raw sewerage if the main sewer line is blocked.

Strange gurgling drain noises – blocked pipes? A blocked drain will sometimes create a gurgling noise from the pipes as the water drains away from the obstruction. This weird gurgling noise in your pipes could be a sign of larger blocked drain problems. We have CCTV Digital cameras that can look inside the pipe to see what the issue is.

Hair is the most common thing to cause a blocked drain. Other oil, grease and small debris can quickly stick to hair and over time it builds up to cause a blockage. Sometimes this may be high up in the pipe and is easy to fix. Other times it may be deeper in the system and need a hot water jet blast to clear it quickly.

Unblock a drain with a plunger – if you are lucky, using a household plunger may do the trick as it can suck the air through the pipes to push the blockage through.

Food scraps are very common to be found in a blocked drain because large pieces can get trapped with other debris and reduce the water flow. As the pipe is moist these items may not really dissolve and can even become stagnant or mouldy.

Baking soda and vinegar – this is a popular method that is used that can work sometimes but you need to be careful about what proportion of each one you use and sometimes you may need to leave it overnight before the blockage is cleared. You would also need to check on the material and thickness of your drain pipes to prevent any other damage.

Absolutely. Although guess what, you can prevent drainage system blockages if you are aware of the early warning signs. You won’t need a blocked drain to be repaired if you watch and listen to your sinks, showers or toilet. In most cases it is a simple blockage that might correct itself once the debris gets free, but other times it might be your main sewer pipe is blocked by a tree root or even food. 

You need to listen or watch for things like water draining slower than normal from a sink or bath, gurgling sounds, toilet bowl not clearing quickly or even odours from floor waste drain outlets. Stagnant water is also unhygienic and can give rise to unpleasant odours. What’s more, it can cause long-term problems like structural damage and mould growth, compromising your health and the value of your property.

Nu-Trend has high pressure jet blasting equipment that can repair blocked drains in Sydney. Our equipment uses either hot or cold water with high PSI water pressure to break down debris in the pipe to clear the blockage. 

What we will typically do is use our water jet blasting equipment together with our CCTV Camera so we can inspect the pipe first to see exactly what is causing the blockage. Once we know what it is, we then push th high pressure hose down the pipe to begin clearing the debris using the water to break down the particles.

It might take a few passes to completely clear the obstacles & in some cases we will do a second camera inspection to see further into the piping in case there are other items blocking the flow of water further into the sytem.

Nu-Trend is a licensed plumber that can unblock your toilet once we have assessed what might be causing it. In most cases we will initially try plunging the pipes to force the blockage down the system. If that doesn’t work we will begin inspecting other parts & use our camera equipment to look into the sewer piping. In some situations the toilet might be blocked because your sewer line has another underlying issue like tree roots that have grown in the pipe, a build up of waste or even a cracked sewer pipe that is preventing proper water flow. In any of these situations you need a blocked toilet plumber to be able to assess your site and recommend the right solution which may even include digging up all the pipes

One of the quickest and easiest solutions to fix a blocked drain is to try pouring a pot of boiling water into the drain. In many cases this may be enough to loosen or dissolve the blockage without having to resort to more serious measures. Be careful though, you should only use method on metal or ceramic pipes, as the heat can loosen joints on plastic or PVC pipes.

 

There may be other combinations or methods to fix a blocked drain that you can read about on the internet or YouTube. Ultimately though if you want a drain unblocked quickly it is recommended to get a professional local plumber to do it for you. We can then also check to see if there are other underlying issues causing the problem like broken pipes, tree roots inside pipes etc

 

Blocked and clogged drains are a nasty problem as they can happen in the kitchen, bathroom or shower and are often caused due to build-up of grease or plant roots that have found their way into the pipes. Typically how owners don’t understanding the causes of blockages and are not fully equipped to fix the problem. A reliable plunger is a good first line of defence, chemicals might work but are harmful to pipes and the environment, but in many cases the job requires a high-pressure water jet.
