A bathroom and laundry renovation in Baulkham Hills
Here was an interesting challenge ;
“How can Nu Trend bathroom renovations keep a house of five people functioning while completing the renovation work?”
It wasn’t an easy task but we managed to achieve it with a mighty thumbs up from our Client afterwards which always makes the hard work that much more enjoyable. In this family home the existing bathrooms felt really boxed-in meaning there was lots of wasted space, little light and unusable nooks – not ideal for a young family of five.
This bathroom and laundry renovation in Baulkham Hills was a classic case of transforming the rooms from 80’s style decore to be fresh, modern and contemporary. The goal was to create fresh new living spaces that wouldn’t age and improved the available natural light. The idea began with the choice of huge floor tiles and beautiful one piece bath. The rest of the room was then created around those elements to create a luxurious escape for the parents.
A master bathroom is very typically spacious and we like to create ours so they can easily be used by two or more people. Where budget allows we try to include things like double vanities, mirrors or even twin shower heads where we can. Like this example, these rooms will have a bathtub, separate shower, lots of storage and a semi-private toilet. Other things that can be added are things like underfloor heating, mood lighting, voice activated controls and more. We try and craft our work so that the design spoils the user, creating a peaceful space tucked away from the busy world for relaxation and solitude. This bathroom was designed to reduce maintenance with the large format tiles and open space.
The laundry was also renovated to create more storage space, better ventilation and easier access to things like power points, the sink or cupboards.
We can complete bathroom renovations in Sydney for a house, unit or townhouse. We are able to work with all types of room shapes and sizes creating a design in collaboration with a designer or working with your ideas.
For this particular project the home was located in Baulkham Hills in Sydney’s north west. The owner was after a complete strip back to a bare room shell to start with a bare slab and timber frame structure. Taking this approach for a renovation project means everything is completely rebuilt and it reduces the chances of issues occurring over time as the room and building ages. We are able to get access to the entire wall cavity, services and apply our attention to detail from the ground up to install piping, electricity, water proofing, tiling and of course things like the shower, bath, vanity and toilet etc minimising any hidden surprises.
