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

  • Moving into an old house or unit that has an outdated shower.


  • Getting ready to prepare a property for sale.


  • Giving a rental property a quick refresh.


  • Have limited time of 1-2 weeks.


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

Nu-Trend is a local shower renovation contractor in Sydney that works with bathrooms 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 project. For shower renovations you would typically be working with the existing walls, ceiling, windows and flooring while 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 waterproofing, tiling, shower screen, shower head, taps and more.

How much does a shower remodel cost?

Remodelling a shower will cost from $500 if you are replacing your showerhead with a high quality mixer, taps & head. Although removing a shower stall completely to remodel the drain, floor tiles and walls can cost between $5,000 and $15,000 depending on the scope of the work required and the materials used. The pricing varies based on the amount of labour required, especially for things like re-tiling, waterproofing and installing new shower products.

How much does a tiled walk-in shower cost?

The biggest variance in the cost of a new tiled walk-in shower will be the cost of the tile you use & how much space needs to be tiled. Therefore the cost can be between $3,000 or $20,000 depending on the size and products you choose. Even things like taps, mixers and showerheads can cost from $200 to $3,000 or more depending on the brand & model selected. You may also need to relocate pipes or remove a wall or do other things in the room to prepare it for a new walk-in shower, therefore there is no single price for a walk-in shower because every scenario is completely different.

How long can a new tiled shower last?

Your tiled shower should last 20 years or more if it is installed by a qualified and experienced shower renovator in Sydney like Nu-Trend. You may not think there is much difference between contractors, but there is. Just like any skilled service, the materials they use, methods of application & attention to detail can be the difference between a great tiled shower and a poor one that has waterproofing issues.

10 tips to save on shower renovations.


When you are considering doing a shower 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 choosing your new bath.


Yes it is true, you could spend over $20,000 on a shower 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.


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. 


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 trying to install two shower heads into a 1 metre square space 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.


Yes unfortunately costs for a shower 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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
