A Sydney bathroom renovation with KDK freestanding bath

Old bathroom before renovation

Stone look wall and floor tiling with a stunning KDK freestanding bath in this main bathroom renovation in Sydney.

We transformed this 1960’s style main bathroom with a renovation in Padstow Sydney who wanted a big open space and huge KDK freestanding bath for a mix of relaxation and romance. 



This was a complete bathroom renovation, we removed all the old wall and floor tiling, toilet system and vanity unit and completely demolished the old to start again. This bathroom was about 3m x 3m and we made it feel even more spacious, bright and fresh by using clever interior design techniques like the wall hung vanity unit, custom made shower screen, wall niche in the walk in shower and slim wall mirror on top of the vanity.

Tapware products we used to compliment the KDK freestanding bath


We sourced the tap hardware fittings from Linkware Australia who make the Lauren Project range which has a strong design statement with sharp lines & suitable for use in either kitchens or bathrooms. The modern square design has a solid brass construction with 35mm cartridge, stylish flat handle and a high quality Matte Black Finish that really set off this room against the stone look tiles.


We also worked closely with the property owner to come up with clever ways to maximise the feeling of space in the bathroom and to create a very clutter-free feeling as soon as you walk into the room. We helped design these elements to achieve this;

  • Custom made glass shower screen; the frameless design reduces the visual clutter and is custom made to suit the room vs pre-made fixed shape designs. There are no clumsy tracks or messy frames required just a single sheet of glass that is easy to clean and very safe to use.
  • Wall hung vanity ‘floating’ unit; this reduces the bulk sitting on the floor and allows your eye to see the floor tiles.
  • Custom made shower drain; created using a matching floor tile it blends into the floor and you hardly notice it.

  • Slimline vanity mirror with lighting

What did we do in this Sydney bathroom renovation?


Doing as many unit renovation projects as we do, we understand how stressful they can be for people trying to live through them. Most tradies also make a big mess. We make sure we protect your property with floor and wall coverings to make sure nothing is damaged while we are renovating your house.


Nu-Trend is a licensed plumber which is an advantage when you are renovating a bathroom. For every project we inspect all the plumbing to make sure it is ready for use. When you combine this with our renovation expertise you get piece of mind.


Some renovation contractors will not include this in their service, they might leave the rubbish from the demolition in your backyard or on the street. Nu-Trend will make sure all the materials and rubbish that are not used are removed neatly ensuring your property isn’t left in a mess and neighbours are happy.


Yes, we make sure from start to finish your property is kept clean and returned to its original state once we have completed the project. We know how much of a hassle renovating can be but we look at all the little things to try make it more pleasant.
