combined bathroom & laundry renovation in newtown, sydney

Repairing a water leak
The owner of this home wanted to combine their bathroom and laundry to create more space in their house. This tired old bathroom in Newtown, Sydney was ready to be completely renovated. Although this renovation project took a little bit longer than normal to complete due to issues with the neighbour. What our plumber discovered were major water leaks coming from the other side of the shared bathroom wall. There was an alfresco area on the other side of the wall that was letting water in.

The neighbour refused access to their property so our client had to get a court order and a letter of demand so that our plumbing team could repair the water leak before we could being the renovation to combine s the bathroom and laundry.

Preparing to renovate
Fortunately we are a bathroom and laundry renovation company in Sydney that has licensed plumbers, electricians, carpenters and builders so we can handle these little surprises if/when they arise. We fixed the water leak in the bathroom and checked in case there was structural damage to the wall or flooring to make sure this was repaired completely first. If we didn’t do that, it can void any warranty provided for the build on the renovation. Once that problem was sorted we could get to work and this complete bathroom renovation which included moving the drainage sewer lines, making allowances to install a new bench top which would be used for the vanity as well as the new laundry with washing machine.

Changing plumbing in a concrete slab
Even though this home was built on a concrete slab it was possible to make changes to the plumbing and drainage. Fortunately our team have licensed bathroom plumbers so it makes everything really easy to manage. 

  • The walls were going to be tiled with hand made white subway tiles.
  • Custom made joinery for the cabinets in a nice soft timber was going to be used to balance out the look of the room. 
  • The rest of the design included Terrazzo floor tiling, ABI Interiors fixtures and taps, a custom made shower screen with curved edge and a beautiful new free standing bath tub.
Putting a washing machine in a bathroom

Passion Built is a licensed builder in Sydney that does renovations in houses, apartments, granny flats or commercial locations. For this home in Sydney, our renovator scope of work was extensive as we had to prepare the room & create a new bathroom with laundry combination layout;

  • Initial consultation with the client to discuss their preferences, budget, and design ideas.
  • Providing a detailed, written, fixed price bathroom renovation quotation
  • Assessment of the existing space, including measurements and inspection for any structural issues or plumbing concerns.
  • Design development, including the creation of 2D & 3D layout plans.
  • Demolition of the old bathroom fixtures, including the removal of tiles, cabinets, plumbing, and electrical components.
  • Plumbing work, for drainage systems, and fixtures such as sinks, toilets, showers, and bathtubs.
  • Electrical work, including the installation of lighting fixtures, outlets, switches, and ventilation fans as per the new design.
  • Installation of new waterproofing, floor tiling, wall tiles and painting.
  • Installation of bathroom fixtures and fittings, including taps, shower heads, towel rails, mirrors, and accessories.
  • Testing and quality assurance to ensure all plumbing and electrical systems work properly.
  • Final cleanup of the renovation area, including the removal of debris and construction waste.
  • Client walkthrough and inspection to ensure satisfaction with the completed bathroom.
  • Handing over warranties, care instructions, and maintenance guidelines for the newly renovated property.


Can you move plumbing in a concrete slab to combine the bathroom and laundry

Passion Built makes it easy to create bathroom and laundry combo floor plans because we have the ability to completely demolish an existing room, move a wall or combine two rooms to make a bigger space to renovate in. Our renovation company can completely demolish an existing bathroom, laundry, powder room or toilet to create the space needed to build a bathroom and laundry layout. 

One of the other benefits of doing this is we can make sure the subfloor is suitable, there is no damage in the walls or ceiling and the plumbing is suitable. In this home, demolishing everything completely obviously helped identify the water leak from the other side of the wall, if we hadn’t done that, nobody would have known until many months or years later when structural issues appeared.

For this home, the plan was to leave the existing walls in the same place although the plumbing had to be adjusted to allow for the new bath, shower, toilet and laundry layout to work together in the same room. Combining your bathroom and laundry is a great way to save space, but you may need to move the plumbing in your walls or the concrete slab to have the right water supply and sewage lines available. We have great plumbers on our team that can help do this by wet saw cutting into the concrete floor or by running new piping in the wall cavities as needed.

This means you can create a new layout in your bathroom that includes a laundry where the toilet, taps or even the sink is in a different location or orientation within the room. Instaplumb provided a licensed plumber to move the plumbing and fit off all the new taps.

Changing the bathroom plumbing layout does mean you are adding costs are required for your renovation budget to cover the labour needed. Although it is a small price to pay because combining your bathroom and laundry makes a lot of sense as it creates more space to add a toilet or shower or enables you to use the existing laundry space for more storage or so you can convert it to a second small bathroom.

bathroom layout with washer and dryer

If you wanted to create a bathroom and laundry layout there are three possible approaches you can take;

  • Renovate your bathroom and add a washer and dryer
    Most bathrooms have enough space to add a washer and dryer combination unit. There are lots of appliances these days which can perform multiple functions and save space. It makes it easy to find a small area inside a bathroom to place these types of appliances which immediately creates a bathroom and laundry layout. Most likely you can still have a toilet, vanity, bath and shower in the same room, especially if you install a combo shower/bath unit. It is a smart way to use space.

  • Combine your existing bathroom and laundry into a single room
    If you have a small bathroom and adjoining laundry then you might be able to remove the wall between them to create a larger, single room and combine the bathroom and laundry using this approach. It is slightly more expensive to do it that way because the wall could be structural and require an engineer, but you get a bigger space to work with.
  • Convert a laundry into a small bathroom
    Some laundries are actually large enough to add a toilet and shower to convert it into a bathroom, this is the cheapest way to add a second bathroom to an existing home. With the use of clever space saving ideas there can be enough room for a small shower, single vanity and toilet to make it extremely functional and practical.

When combining an existing bathroom and laundry the layout will vary based on the overall space you have available and what you are trying to fit into the room. As mentioned, we can knock down a wall between the existing rooms to make a single, larger, space. Other times we might build a wall niche that has folding doors to hide the washing machine or in this layout that we built, you can see the washing machine and the custom made cabinetry has the vanity, overhead storage cupboards and everything is quick and easy to access. 

Modern bathroom design ideas with washing machine

To build a modern bathroom design with a washing machine is very easy to do, you can use all the same materials, colours and textures as if you were building a separate standalone room. Just because a washing machine or dryer will be installed in the same room doesn’t mean you can’t have a modern feel to the room.

Some people like to show off their household appliances so they are visible when you enter the bathroom and have quick access to use them. In other situations people want to create a very sleek, modern look by concealing the laundry equipment behind a door or false wall so you focus on maybe a nice bath or shower area.

In this modern bathroom with laundry they chose to use some very stylish design touches like the subway wall tiling, coloured feature wall tiles and Terrazzo flooring. All very simply done, but gives the room a very expensive feel even though clothes & bodies will be washed in it. 

Combined bathroom and laundry with toilet

Yes there is such a thing as a combined bathroom and laundry with toilet, in fact many homes have a separate toilet or WC next to the laundry which was built to be stand alone. It makes sense to have a toilet in the laundry room and add a shower to create a bathroom, it uses the space more effectively compared to storing junk in that room.

A washing machine, dryer or other laundry appliances can be concealed behind cupboard doors, a sliding door or even a nib wall to be more discrete. Alternatively to create privacy if someone is using the toilet while someone walks in to use the laundry, a frosted glass wall could be installed or a small nib wall.

So if you are wanting to get ideas for putting a toilet in a laundry have a look at our other renovations.

Vanity with washing machine space

When you are thinking about building a combined bathroom and laundry one of the design aspects to consider is whether you want a vanity with washing machine space or not. By combining your vanity unit with a large bench top area you can make it easy for anyone to do their make up, shave or do the washing. Custom made cabinetry can be designed to create space for all types of uses with the vanity above the washing machine appliance.

It makes it very practical to have your washing machine in the bathroom and use it day to day.

Ideas for combined bathroom and laundry renovations

Our bathroom renovation company in Sydney can combine your old laundry & bathroom so that it is a single space with lots of room to have a wash or clean the clothes. We have licensed plumbers, builders, carpenters & tilers who work together to renovate any type of room. We can even remove or adjust a wall if need be to create enough space for a bath tub, shower, toilet, washing machine and dryer. 

The custom made cabinetry adds a classy touch to this room with the dark timber adding warmth and complimenting the brushed gold taps.


Combined vanity and laundry cupboards

You can have a vanity sink that is also part of your laundry cupboard. This creates usable space to sort your clothes out or get ready in the morning. This type of dual purpose bathroom design idea is perfect for small bathrooms where things need to be combined to save space and improve functionality.

Shallow vanity sink

Most people will choose a sink for their vanity that is quite deep, although when you think about it, why do you need a deep sink? By choosing to install a shallow sink in your bathroom you can save space under the countertop for extra storage while retaining the ability to catch water.

Vanity mirror with storage

For small bathrooms it can be hard to find enough space to store all of your medicine, hair care products and other toiletries. Instead of choosing a simple mirror to hang on the wall, getting a vanity mirror with storage can help solve that problem. It also creates easy eye-level access to everything you need.

Textured tiling

Most people choose smooth tiles for their walls or floors, but you can use textured tiles that can give a room some impact and make it feel luxurious. For this bathroom renovation subway tiles were used for the wall tiling. It’s a small detail but adds interior design interest to the room. It even disguises the built in wall niche.

New bathroom designs
Building a new bathroom or renovating an old one can definitely add value to your home, as long as the renovations are done properly and with the right materials. When considering a bathroom renovation, it’s important to ensure that you have all the necessary elements to make the space functional, including a shower, toilet, vanity and bathtub.

  • A shower is a must-have for most people, as it provides a convenient and efficient way to get clean. Make sure to choose a shower that is large enough for two people and has enough headroom, if needed.
  • Toilets are also important (no kidding right) and you should consider a model that is efficient, easy to clean and has a low profile to make the most of the space if there isn’t much room. Sometimes a concealed cistern system is a wise choice.
  • Vanity units are essential for storing bathroom essentials and can be used to add extra counter space, too. Choose a vanity that matches the style of the bathroom and has enough storage space.
  • Bathtubs can also add value to your home, especially if you have a larger family or enjoy relaxing in a warm bath. While they can take up a lot of space they are especially suited if the home needs to be used by a family with small children or it is placed in an ensuite to the main bedroom.

Choose your own materials
When renovating your  bathroom, it is important to choose high-quality materials that are durable and attractive. This includes tiles, taps, shower heads and other fixtures. We always recommend a fresh coat of paint to give the space a new look and feel. Additionally, consider incorporating energy-efficient and eco-friendly features into your bathroom renovation, such as low-flow toilets, shower heads and taps which can help reduce water and energy usage. These features not only help the environment, but can also lower your monthly bills.


Fixed price quotations
Regarding cost, bathroom renovations can range from a few thousand dollars for a basic renovation to tens of thousands for a complete overhaul. It is important to have a budget in mind and stick to it, so you don’t overspend. Renovating a bathroom in Matraville to include a shower, toilet, vanity and bathtub can add value to your home, as long as the renovations are done properly and with the right materials.

Adding a bathroom with a combined laundry to a home can potentially add value to your home. However, the actual value added will depend on various factors such as the quality of the construction, the market demand in your area, and the overall appeal and functionality of the addition. Here are some considerations:

  • Increased Functionality: Adding a bathroom and a combined laundry to a garage can enhance the functionality of your home. This addition provides convenience and versatility, especially if there are no existing bathrooms or laundry facilities in the garage or nearby. It can be particularly attractive to potential buyers or renters who prioritise having these amenities readily available.
  • Additional Living Space: Converting a garage into a usable space with a bathroom and laundry can effectively increase the liveable square footage of your home. This can be advantageous when it comes to property valuation and appeal. However, it’s important to note that converting a garage may impact the availability of covered parking, which could be a factor for some buyers.
  • Market Demand: The demand for properties with additional bathrooms and laundry facilities can vary depending on the specific market conditions in your area. Research the local real estate market and consult with real estate professionals to understand the preferences and expectations of potential buyers or renters. Consider whether the addition aligns with the needs and desires of the target market.
  • Quality and Design: The quality of the construction, finishes, and overall design of the added bathroom and laundry will significantly impact its value. Ensure that the space is well-designed, functional, and visually appealing. Using high-quality materials and fixtures will also contribute to the perceived value of the addition.
  • Cost vs. Value: Consider the cost of the addition relative to the potential increase in property value. Evaluate whether the expenses involved in construction, permits, and any necessary modifications are justified by the potential return on investment. It’s advisable to get estimates from reputable contractors and compare them with the estimated increase in home value to make an informed decision.
