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.

Common questions about getting a bathroom renovated
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 small bathroom renovation 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 small bathroom renovations 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 small bathroom renovation 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 small bathroom renovation 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.
- Clearly define the room / space that has to be renovated.
- Decide if it will be done in the existing wall structure or the room has to be made larger.
- Confirm if all existing plumbing, electrical, lighting, doors and windows will remain as they are or not.
- 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.
In Sydney more people live in units, apartments or townhouses as our preferences change due to convenience, location and proximity to public transport.
In the 2016 Census of Population and Housing it was reported that 10% (2,348,434) of all people in Australia were in an apartment that night. That is roughly 20% vs people living in houses compared to about 14% in 1991. Fast forward to 2020 and we know from just driving around to our new projects that figure would be higher with all the unit developments that have gone up in Sydney.
It means most people are living in smaller homes with New South Wales having the highest proportion of apartments relative to all occupied private dwellings (at 21%). That works out to be about 1 million people in Sydney who have a small bathroom and usually this is 1.5 metres wide by 2.5 metres long & would generally be considered ‘small’
Although what you think is small and what we think is small can be two completely different things as everyone’s perspective is different.

Having a small bathroom doesn’t mean it can’t be modern, practical or stylish. The lack of space shouldn’t deter anyone from considering renovating it. We find that in many cases a modern approach can create a very spacious, open feeling even in a small room.
Typically, small bathrooms are maybe the second or third one in a house or the main bathroom or ensuite for a unit, apartment or townhouse. We find that most people will do small bathroom renovations for;
- Giving their old unit a fresh new look.
- To give a small bathroom more light and space.
- To take space from adjoining hallway cupboards or a laundry.
- To upgrade a bedroom to have a private ensuite.

How to calculate a small bathroom renovation budget.
It’s important to understand what you will need to work out your bathroom renovation budget. Just because you will be renovating a small bathroom doesn’t mean it will necessarily be cheaper than a larger one or shouldn’t have a clear budget set out.
Our guide can help you understand what is needed to create your budget and why pricing for a small bathroom renovation can vary so greatly.
New small bathroom renovation trends?
One of the first things we ask every client is what style or look are you trying to achieve with your small bathroom renovation. Sometimes you might be working with a designer who can help you through the planning process and other times you will do it yourself.
Here is our guide to the latest trends in modern small bathroom renovations with photos, texture and design ideas for inspiration.
Small bathrooms with a free standing bath
Renovating a small bathroom requires lots of careful planning because of the small space available to work with. The selection of fixtures, fittings, shower, vanity, cupboards and bathtub can make a big difference to how the room feels and the functionality.
Nu-Trend has completed lots of small bathroom renovations in Sydney where we have installed a free standing bath to make a room more functional and perfect for families with children
Design ideas for small bathrooms
When you are designing the floor plan for a small bathroom every bit of available space becomes incredibly important to make best use of the space. Lots of older bathrooms in Sydney have tiny windows, bulky shower recess areas, chunky cupboards and just don’t use the space very well at all.
By demolishing the room completely you can start fresh and create the floor plan that suits you. Some of the clever design ideas to for small bathrooms include;
- Wall hung vanity units or cupboards so that you can see more of the floor space which makes the room feel larger.
- Single piece, custom made shower screen that reduces the need for a full frame or a wall so that you have an open, clear space that lets light into the whole room.
- Wall niche areas to store cleaning products instead of using shelving or racking.
- Floor to wall tiling can create a more seamless feel to the room which makes it feel larger than it is.
- Better natural light with either a larger window, skylight or glass brick wall to give it a bright, airy feeling.
- Slimline ceiling ventilation fan that is flush with the roof.
