Your laundry is typically the least thought about room in a house and sometimes doesn’t get the attention it deserves. In many cases we find that a laundry has been designed as an afterthought when budget ran out or was created in the 80’s when huge sinks and top load washing machines were the rage. You would consider renovating your laundry when;
- You want to create more practical storage space.
- Adjusting the layout of the Bathroom and Laundry areas by moving walls..
- Taking space from other wall cavities in the house to create a different space or flow.
- Combining your bath and laundry area into the one room or trying to add a toilet or shower to it.
- Replacing basic shelving and empty space with cupboards and benchtops to create a more usable space.
Nu-Trend can help with a laundry renovation 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 renovation in this type of room you would typically be working with the existing walls, ceiling, windows and flooring and replacing the existing items with new ones. Although it could also be a complete strip back to make a larger, more usable space.
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 appliances, sink etc
What contractors do you need to renovate a laundry in Sydney?
Many people get a little confused when it comes to laundry renovations and just which contractors you actually need. For most laundry renovations you will need a mixture of trades to get the job done perfect.
- Plumber; Nu-Trend can install all the services for taps, sinks and appliances as well as assist with things like tiling, waterproofing and fixture installation.
- Electrician; is needed for things like power points, lighting, ventilation systems or heating.
- Renovator; Nu-Trend is a qualified renovation company that can help with room demolition and building the room structure ready to be renovated.
- Carpenter / joiner / cabinet maker; a laundry normally needs cabinetry installed which is typically done by a cabinet maker, joiner or carpenter because it is a specialist trade and different to installing a toilet, shower or sink.
Either way you are better off working with specialists in each area for such an important room as a laundry.

10 tips to save on a laundry renovation.
#1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
When you are considering doing a laundry renovation 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 plus some amazing storage ideas.
#2. WORK OUT YOUR BUDGET
Yes it is true, you could spend over $5,000 on a laundry renovation 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 washer, dryer, steaming iron, toilet and shower into a laundry may not be feasible..
#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 laundry renovation 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.
