Sydney Bathroom Domestic Plumber in Peakhurst from Nu-Trend to complete a house construction-22

Bathroom plumbing in Peakhurst with Watermark products

The project site for this bathroom plumbing project was in Peakhurst in Sydney’s southern suburbs. The Client was building a new house and needed all the domestic plumbing completed in multiple bathrooms, laundry, kitchen and even his butler’s pantry. This was a brand new house build so it meant all the plumbing requirements had to be planned prior to the build starting. Apart from all the internal building work it was great to see the Client opting to install water saving items like the external rain water tanks that we also helped set up.

The products used in this bathroom renovation?

Most of the products were sourced from Aquaperla using a number of items from the WaterMark range. This included a great looking free standing bath tub and a few of the other highlights were;

 

WaterMark Black Freestanding Bath Mixer With Hand held Shower Item #: OX0117.BS
A bath spout with a unique design that is attached to the floor making it a perfect pairing to a free standing bath. The spout arm is 255mm in length allowing plenty of reach. The handheld device allows for easy washing of hair and cleaning of the whole bath with great control over the direction of the water. The floor mounted spout lets you put it anywhere next to the bath, while at the same time your walls can remain clutter free.

 

 

Watermark 8 inch Square Black Shower Station Top Water Inlet
This Square Slim Shower Set with Handheld Spray Head is made of solid brass with matte black finish and complimented the simple classic look of the rooms perfectly. The 360 degree swivel ball joint of the top head adjusts, the mesh filter inside the shower head blocks debris in the water, it is easy to clean with mild soap and the built-in diverter lets you easily switch between top shower head and hand held shower.

 

 

Watermark Black Tall Basin Mixer
A touch of luxury is added to the rooms with these matte black basin mixers with a straight edge design that gives each bathroom a modern finish that won’t age with time. They sit separate from the basin making the area easier to keep clean and later if you decide to change your basins it is an easy process to complete.

 

 

Inspire 600mm Oval Basin
The bathroom basins came from Inspire and were finished in a gloss white fine ceramic glazing with really simple, seamless design that wasn’t too fussy while being extremely easy to clean with their simple, smooth lines.

How we make bathroom plumbing stress free.

We make sure everyone knows what areas of the house can or cannot be used. So for example we make sure there are warnings on the toilet or sinks to make sure someone doesn’t use them be accident before they have finished being installed.

A shower wall niche has become a modern trend for new bathroom renovations. For this room it was a full length niche spanning the wall which made it a design feature and practical element for the shower area. It utilises empty space in the wall to turn it into a shelf for storing common shower items. No more ugly hanging baskets or other ugly items in your shower but have an easy to reach shelf.

A feature wall can add impact and style to any bathroom size whether it is for a house, unit or apartment. It gives you that wow factor that can transform a bathroom.

A floating vanity unit can help make a room feel larger. Visually what happens is your eye can see more of the floor and naturally the room or space feels larger because you can see further. By placing a vanity unit, cupboard or other furniture on the walls in a floating style you can make any small bathroom feel larger.

A complete clean up from street to bathroom. We don’t leave mess anywhere and make sure every element has been cleaned to return it to normal.

We also take care of the little things like making sure the rubbish removal bin is covered so that dirt, debris etc doesn’t fly out on the street and it makes it easier to be taken away.

Tips for a bathroom renovations in Sydney

Light, lots of bright, fresh light

    • These days modern bathrooms are being renovated with a focus on creating as much light as possible in the room. This creates a very open, spacious feeling and can help lift the mood as soon as you enter the room. It also helps reduce mould and typically helps with ventilation.
 
    • There are other ways to maximise light in a bathroom if the available window is very small. You can;
      • Install a skylight to avoid loosing wall space and have free, natural light.
      • Use shower screens that are 100% clear rather than frosted so that you can see the whole room and light can fill each corner perfectly.
      • Use a frameless shower screen with clear glass, this not only makes the room feel larger but there are less elements for light to be absorbed.
      • Use bright colours so that any available light is then bouncing around the room
      • Use gloss tiles to help reflect light in the room

A glass door

    • You can install a glass door which is a unique idea for a bathroom but if it is frosted it will maintain privacy, but let lots of light into the room. 
    • Use a sliding door to save space in a bathroom as it opens and closes into a wall cavity rather than going into the room. Saving space is really important for Sydney bathroom renovations as so many of the rooms are quite small and less than 12m2.  

Consider a feature wall


    • Some people consider a feature all a little old fashioned. Although you are probably thinking of bright bold colours or something really weird that you hate the site of. These days there are some incredible tile designs available that can create truly unique feature walls for a bathroom, ensuite or master bathroom.
    • A bathroom feature wall is a great way to make a statement and give your room wow factor to make it feel like a luxury day spa or hotel room. 
    • If you do it correctly the feature wall can visually tie the whole bathroom together and give it a sense of unity with incredible bathroom design by professional renovators. 
    • Feature walls can be great for spall spaces as it can create a visual illusion of more space in the room. You could even run the same tiles from the floor up a wall to create the illusion of height.
    • Large feature wall tiles can be easier to clean and maintain compared to smaller ones.
    • Although be careful, if it isn’t done right a feature wall in a bathroom renovation can be distracting, date easily and hard to change because it isn’t like re-painting over a wall or grabbing some new wallpaper.
    • Here are some 2020 trends in bathroom renovations
 

Wall-mounted bathroom vanity units

    • If you install your bathroom vanity onto a wall it can make a room feel larger. 
    • This bathroom we renovated in Clovelly required additional storage, so we placed a towel cupboard in a floating position in the far corner of the room. It enables your eye to see the floor tiles go all the way to the wall, thus creating an illusion of space and size.

An open wet area

    • An open wet area is for those who are a little more adventourous with their bathroom designs and rather than having a large wall or shower screen the room is designed to have a shower but with a large open area. Normally the drainage will be along the edge of the wall and taps in a corner. You can have a shower with complete freedom.
    • A shower that is an open wet area makes the room feel larger instantly as there are no visual distractions and are very bold.

Large tiles

    • Using large format tiles for your bathroom renovation can make a room feel larger. With big single surface areas and very few grout lines the room is less busy or crowded to the eye. Larger tiles are also easier to keep clean.

Lots of mirrors

    • Using mirrors the right way can really get the light bouncing around in a bathroom to make it feel brighter and larger. It can also be done in a way to show off key features as people walk into the bathroom.
