An ensuite bathroom renovation in Sydney designed to be bright, spacious and always feel fresh.

For ensuite bathroom renovations in Sydney Nu-Trend is one of the leading specialist contractors that can help design clever rooms to suit any style of property. We can use all types of materials to renovate bathrooms like marble, timber, glass or porcelain & use these in interior designs that can create functional spaces that kids or adults can use. Nu-Trend is a Sydney renovation specialist that take care of everything from the initial interior design, demolishing your existing bathroom, sourcing hardware products all the way through to the final clean up & rubbish removal.


For this ensuite bathroom renovation design the owner wanted to maximise the available space with a very fresh, white, minimalist look. So using the existing plumbing we didn’t need to move any of the piping in the slab and it meant the toilet and sink could stay where they were. To give the room a sense of space the owner chose a concealed toilet cistern and exposed pipe vanity sink so that the room didn’t feel cluttered with too many fittings. The mirror chosen was white so that it would blend into the walls and also reflect lots of light in the room.


The timeframe to complete this type of bathroom renovation is between 2 and 4 weeks depending on access, delivery of products etc.


The budget: $10,000 – $20,000 depending on the actual hardware and tiling chosen.

Clever ensuite bathroom design ideas

1. Exposed piping and no vanity cabinet.
Considering this is an ensuite there is less need to store lots of things in the room. So it makes sense sometimes to avoid filling the room with cabinets. Instead what this owner has done is use a very simple white vanity sink basin and exposed piping to create a floating effect. It immediately feels stylish and creates space in the corner of the room. It is also very easy to clean, to it is a practical bathroom design idea as well. 



2. Concealed toilet cistern

To maximise space in the room even further the cistern for the toilet is concealed in the wall cavity. It saves maybe 20-30cm but it makes all the difference as it gives the walls of the room a clean, flush feel with lots of wide open wall space. So visually combined with the lack of cabinets in the room it instantly feels larger. 




3. White walls and trims
The simple white colour palette not only creates a fresh, bright room but it reflects light into the room all day long. So it instantly feels inviting, fresh, open and spacious. The bathroom products almost blend into the walls rather than being features and so visually it feels less heavy. 




4. Feature tiles
When the products and walls are so minimal it creates the opportunity to be a little creative with your tile choices. In this example the tiles chosen become a bit of a feature but don’t overpower the room.

What did we do in this ensuite 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.


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. 


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.
