A Sydney bathroom renovation with Grohe tapware
Grohe tapware was used in this complete bathroom renovation in Sydney.
We completed another Sydney bathroom renovation for this property owner in Neutral Bay who wanted to give their room a more modern look and improve the space they had to shower in the morning.
This was a complete bathroom renovation, we removed all the old tiling, plastic toilet system and vanity unit and completely demolished the old bathroom to start again. This bathroom was fairly small but we made it feel spacious, bright and fresh by using clever interior design techniques like the wall hung vanity unit, custom made shower screen, full length wall niche in the walk in shower and concealed wall cabinet with mirror and extra storage space.
The owner of this house chose Nu-Trend because we are a small bathroom renovation specialist in Sydney and are renovation contractors who can also help with bathroom plumbing. They had been reading some of our renovating advice articles and decided to choose Nu-Trend as their local contractor.

Grohe tapware products we used
We sourced all our products from Reece Plumbing & the client had already chosen a number of Grohe bathroom products. Grohe is a German sanitary fittings manufacturer with its office in Hemer and headquarters in Düsseldorf. Since 2014, Grohe has been part of the Japanese Lixil Group & in 2017 had generated consolidated sales revenues of EUR 1.35 billion. They employ about 6,000 people worldwide. The Nu-Trend team loves working with Grohe products as they are really durable, strong items that have been designed in a way that are easy to install. You just know you are using high quality bathroom products that are aesthetically pleasing to look at with elegant, clean finishes.
- Grohe Bauedge Basin Mixer
- Grohe Eurosmart Shower Mixer
- Grohe Tempesta 200 Shower Head
- Posh Domain 750 Vanity with ceramic top
- Full length wall niche in the shower; this almost blends into the wall from the use of a single floor to ceiling tile colour and helps to reduce the visual lines or edges around the room. It also makes it easy to store shampoo or soap without needing to use hanging ranks or other items on the walls.
- 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 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.
Getting bathroom tiling right
Some people will get a bathroom renovation quote and not realise all the little details they are missing out on. To save money and time some bathroom renovation companies will cut corners on their labour and hire inexperienced trades or opt for the fastest, cheapest way to get the job done to maximise their profits.
What we do at Nu-Trend is take that little bit of extra time to get all the small details right. For this small bathroom renovation we spend the time to look at how the tiles will match up and even give the Client the option to change them around if they want.
This can ensure the patterns and textures work in a nice flow for the room to create a high quality tiling finish. Even more important in this project because the floor tiles were also used for the walls.
What did we do in this Sydney bathroom renovation?
#1 PROTECTED THE PROPERTY
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.
#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. When you combine this with our renovation expertise you get piece of mind.
#3 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.
#4 PROPERTY CLEANING
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.
