Bathroom renovator in Mosman
Renovating a bathroom in an apartment in Mosman
Lots of apartment blocks in Mosman were built in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Some people love their retro looking exteriors as they add some character and charm to the local area compared to modern tall buildings that are built to maximise the land and air space.
The family that owned this second floor apartment in Mosman were returning home after living in Singapore for more than three years. So they wanted to get the bathroom updated and renovate it to have a new modern look without spending a fortune.
The old bathroom was very plain and lacked warmth with its plain off-white design that just wasn’t very appealing at all. The apartment owner lived in Papua New Guinea at the time and worked directly with his property manager and the team at Passion Built to get everything organised beginning with the demolition of the old bathroom.
To keep the renovation costs reasonable all the existing plumbing was going to be used and everything would remain in the same locations. So the layout would be identical but the room would get new tiling, fittings and furniture installed including new toilet, vanity and shower.

Passion Built‘s renovation scope of work included the demolition of the old bathroom (removing the old furniture, toilet and tiling), preparing the floors and walls for new waterproofing, new floor and wall tiling & then finishing off the room with installation of the new vanity, toilet, shower & electrical fittings.
Our renovation company is very experienced when it comes to working in unit or apartment blocks so we know how to plan, manage and renovate within tight spaces with limited access.
It does take a bit more planning and co-ordination compared to renovating a normal home, but it is still possible to achieve. It means if you own an apartment you don’t have to live with old interior styling and can renovate internal rooms with a new look or style.

Renovating ideas for a small bathroom
Wall hung vanity with storage
Keeping things up off the floor can make a room feel larger because you can see more of the floor area. This wall hung vanity has a slide out storage drawer for added practicality. This is combined with a wall hung vanity mirror with even more storage. The round sink is quite shallow as well so it doesn’t take up much cabinet space below it other than the waste pipe.
Walk in shower
The huge custom made glass shower screen makes this walk in shower super easy to maintain and clean. The other huge benefit is there is no wall hob to step over, there is plenty of access and its great for either adults or kids to use.
By not using a bulky frame in this small room it also creates the illusion of more space in the room as you can see to the window without any obstruction.
Simple taps and mixers
Sometimes when you are renovating a bathroom you need to think about its future uses. This family has been living and working overseas for a number of years and they may do that again. So this bathroom may get used as a rental property in the future.
By choosing simple design elements the room can appeal to a wide range of people making it easy to suit any type of person making it quicker to rent.
