A bathroom renovation with bathtub in Miranda
Well, when we were told the bath was made of stone and weighed 300kg we knew we had our work cut out for this bathroom renovation in Miranda, Sydney. The whole interior design was focussed around the beautiful stone bath tub as a feature piece in the room. So we had to manage all the details to work out how to safely lift and move the bath tub into place & complete the renovation.
All of the colours, textures and materials chosen had a focus on complimenting the new freestanding stone bath so that it could be the hero & focal point as soon as you entered the room. It added a touch of 5 star hotel luxury to this family home and created the perfect place to escape to for a nice soak with a glass of wine.
We can complete bathroom renovations anywhere in Sydney whether you have a house, unit or townhouse. We are able to work with all types of room shapes and sizes with an interior design that is done in collaboration with you or with an interior designer. For this particular project the home was located in Miranda in Sydney’s Southern Shire. The owner was after a complete bathroom renovation which meant a complete demolition of the current room and starting to then start with a bare slab and timber frame structure. We provide demolition as part of our service for every project.
Taking this approach to renovating in Sydney means that even for older properties we can ensure everything is completely rebuilt and it reduces the chances of issues occurring once the room ages. We are able to get access to the wall cavity, services and apply our attention to detail from the ground up, including making sure the walls and flooring is square & level. We can then install piping, electricity, water proofing, tiling and of course things like the shower, bath, vanity and toilet.

What was the client's review?
What was unique about this renovation with bathtub in Miranda?
We were able to use some incredible bathroom products with beautiful design features for this room like;
- Barthworx stone bath.
- Double vanity with sink bowls from Highgrove bathrooms and stone bowls from Bathworx.
- Tapware phoenix vivid slimline brushed nickel flick mixers.
- The shower head was from Arcisian Synergiu in brushed nickel.
- Tiles from MDC Mosaics.
The bathroom was completed in about 5 weeks with a similar room makeover costing between $35,000 – $40,000.
The 300kg, natural stone, bath became the absolute hero in this bathroom, the perfect way to relax after a long hard day at work. It complimented the vanity stone basins perfectly with the mosaic tiled feature wall really setting the room off. The emerald green colour was chosen by the Client and gave the room a little touch of luxury.
Even after 10 years of completing various plumbing services or bathroom renovations we learn new things, like how to move a 300kg bath into a house without breaking it.
