A renovation for a master bathroom in the Kyle Bay in the Sutherland shire with a new bath installed
Nu-Trend is a bathroom plumbing renovation contractor with a factory in Hurstville that can do renovations in Kyle Bay or other suburbs in the Sutherland Shire. We do complete room renovations for homes to create modern bathroom designs like this one in Kyle Bay that had new bath, shower, vanity & tiling installed. The team at Reece Rockdale referred the property owners to us for this renovation completed. The owner of the property had already finished the demolition of the existing bathroom so we had a completely empty room with bare walls and floors to begin with.
For all the complete bathroom renovations we build in Sydney, we always recommend doing a full demolish of the existing room. It means we are stripping back every item from the furniture, fittings, tiling and even the waterproofing to be able to work with freshly prepared surfaces. Taking this approach can ensure everything is renovated to a high standard because any new renovation work is done from scratch compared to trying to make adjustments to pre-existing conditions in a building.
For this renovation job in Kyle Bay, the owner had purchased products from Reece Plumbing like the Kado Lux Toilet Suite, Milli basin set, Mizu wastes and custom designed floating double vanity unit from ADP Australia.
The scope of renovating work required by our bathroom renovation team included;
- Hot and cold water rough in
- Electrical rough in
- Fit off fixtures and fittings
- Wall tiling
- Floor tiling
- Screeding gradients to correct falls
- Priming walls
- Render correction of all walls
Getting a new wall hung vanity unit installed in Kyle Bay
Architectural Designer Products is an Australian business that has been family run since 2001. They are considered to be one of Australia’s largest and most innovative bathroom furniture manufacturers. ADP creates a range of vanities, shaving cabinets, ensembles, basins and other products.
For this bathroom that needed to be renovated in Kyle Bay, the home owner contracted us to install a wall hung vanity from ADP’s London Range It comes in a range of sizes and configurations starting with their 600mm model from $1829 with vanity top material choices like Cherry Pie Premium Solid Surface (60mm), Friday Hybrid Quartz (60mm) or Caesarstone (60mm – additional charges apply) available. There are plenty of other products available for what is a timeless piece of design that won’t date very easily.
Getting a plumber or a bathroom renovating company to install a new vanity is a relatively straight forward thing to do if you are doing either minor or complete renovations. We can remove the old unit first, adjust any of the plumbing if needed & then install the new unit together with adjusting taps, mixers or bowls as required. We can even convert dual taps into a single mixer set up. We can then make adjustments to the piping if needed so that it is all re-connected with water running as it should into your new sink.
During the planning stages it is obviously pretty important to have a very clear interior design and floor plan so that our team of bathroom plumbing installers can work to the specifications and place it in the right location. What can happen is a vanity gets installed on the wall in the wrong location which makes it hard to use or not align with other items getting installed like a new toilet.
We have a team of bathroom plumbers so you don’t even need to talk to other contractors, we can do both parts of the job – we can get all the plumbing set up and then install the vanity as part of the reno. If you are not sure about how to approach your design then there are lots of places you can go for help at places like Reece’s bathroom design, they even have online 3D floor plan creation sofware called Imagin3D
Design ideas for bathroom renovations in Kyle Bay
When people ask us to provide a quote to do a renovation we go through quite a lot of detail. The reason we do this is because there are lots of small things that can be included to really enhance the look of the finished room.
For this bathroom, lighting was a bit consideration so our installation included under cabinet lighting to illuminate the floor as well as lighting around the vanity mirror. This adds a touch of warmth to the room but is also very practical from a safety perspective or being able to do make up accurately.
These small details can change the small bathroom renovation costs quite considerably and be the difference between a ‘cheap’ and ‘expensive’ quote, so it pays to keep an eye on the details.
Custom walk in shower
A custom made shower screen using single glass panel sheets is the best choice when installing a new shower in Sydney. Instead of using pre-made frames that have to fit the room, the custom made glass panels are made to suit your layout.
It also means the wall mounting points are much slimmer and you don’t have a hob, framing or other materials being used that can collect debris, corrode or rust.
This also makes cleaning the shower much easier as you can reach every part of the surface.
To save money on renovations of a shower some people will choose to install a simple drain waste that you can buy from Bunnings or Reece.
These are fine of course, but if you want a touch of luxury then, a custom made floor waste can be integrated into the floor tiling so that it becomes almost ‘invisible’ when you look into the room. The wider opening can also capture more water too.
Depending on the model you choose, we may even be able to disguise a Reece strip drain depending on the shape & the floor tiling being used.
Another thing that people don’t spend much time thinking about is where to place power points in the room. Most people will put them on a wall near the vanity. Although it is possible to have an electrician install new points inside a vanity mirror cupboard so they are concealed.
This means all the cables are hidden, devices like speakers, shavers etc can be put on charge & best of all, the kids can’t grab any of them.
Ceiling vent installation
Ventilation is another huge aspect to consider when renovating a new bathroom in Sydney. We live in a temperate area so getting air in and out of the room is important to avoid mould build up and keep the room smelling fresh. We can install ceiling mounted or wall mounted vents that can let air escape outside.

What else did our renovation company complete in this master bathroom renovation in Kyle Bay?
#1 PROTECTED THE PROPERTY
Doing as many house 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.
#2 PLUMBING & FLOORING INSPECTION
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. We conduct a CCTV Camera Inspection of your piping and if required a high pressure jet blast to make sure everything is ready.
#3 TAKING CARE OF THE PROPERTY
It is the small things that count. We will check things like how your pets get into the house, if neighbours require access to driveways or other things that are important to how you live in your home to make sure everything goes smoothly during a renovation.
#4 RUBBISH REMOVAL
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.
#5 PRECISE MEASUREMENTS & PREPARATION
We make sure that each part of the renovation project is not only done in accordance to Australian Standards but is precise, measured and correctly prepared.
This includes things like doing a laser level check for the screed and tile height pre start off the plan to make sure the right falls are created.
#6 CUSTOM DRAIN GRATES
For every bathroom renovation project we do we will typically have custom designed drain grates created so they fit your space perfectly.
Same applies for most shower renovations that we do, rather than use off the shelf screens, in most cases we will recommend a custom cut shower screen so it can perfectly fit your room.
#7 RELOCATE PIPES & DRAINS
If you are changing the floor plan of your renovation we can move pipes and drains to suit the new layout. This means you have better flexibility for your interior design choices.
