A bathroom renovation contractor in Sydney that brings dreams to life

Passion Built is a bathroom renovation company in Alexandria, Sydney that can renovate in all suburbs. Our experienced team of renovation contractors have finished lots of different projects from complete bathroom renovations to remodels for rental properties. 

We know most people find it hard to work out how much it costs to renovate but we can make that task a lot easier to ensure you add value of your home by spending wisely. Unfortunately there are millions of answers though and there isn’t any particular situation that you can compare to because each property is different. Some people might just need a small 3 x 3 sized room updated & others might want a wall removed to combine two rooms into a larger one. 

So if you are thinking about starting a renovation project and need to find some ideas, the very first place to start is creating a very clear goal and defining the purpose of your renovation. This will make it easier to then come up with ideas to then work out your budget, products to be used and the planning required.

For many people renovating a bathroom is the fastest way to add value to a property, besides the kitchen it is the most used part of the home & the one that can create wow factor. As a qualified and licensed builder we are able to renovate small bathrooms, an ensuite or master for retail shops, industrial buildings and residential houses or units. We even include 2D and 3D designs to help with your budgeting and planning.

Dylan and his team renovated my bathroom, laundry and kitchen in my unit in Alexandria. His team are excellent and I couldn’t be happier with the final product.

I was particularly happy with the quality of cabinet making, tiling in the bathroom, and painting.

Dylan is very responsive, trustworthy and a nice bloke to deal with. When problems arise (as they inevitably will) he tackles them quickly and without fuss. Highly recommended.

Free 3D virtual bathroom interior design with every renovation

One of the ways we make designing a new bathroom easy for home owners is to use 2D & 3D Virtual Design Software. This tool accurately uses the measurements from your property to design a bathroom that will suit your needs. We can place items in the room and move them around so that you get a virtual view of how everything will look in the new room.

This makes it much easier to work out your floor plan, bathroom renovation budget, an accurate list of building materials needed and enable us to provide a fixed price renovation quotation. It removes all the guesswork & is better than hand drawn sketches or a few bullet points written on a quote.

Completely custom designed bathrooms that you create

Passion Built can renovate your bathroom whether it is in a house, unit or retail shop. We have been doing more and more bathroom renovations in recent years as property owners have realised it is one of the best ways to add value to your home quickly. 

Bathroom design has changed a great deal during the last 20 years and a lot of Sydney homes have small bathrooms that are typically 3m x 3m in size. Although, for a lot of floor plans there might be a laundry or linen cupboard that can also be used to change the configuration of the walls to create more space to work with. 

Passion Built can even help move your bathroom plumbing so that a room can be re-configured to suit a new custom designed layout that perfectly suits your needs

Changing a floor plan in your bathroom


Given Passion Built are qualified building contractors we can create opportunities to completely custom design a new room that you want renovated. So not only can you choose things like floor or wall tiling, furniture, lighting and fixtures but even the floor plan layout. We can provide options to move things around in the room to change the floor plan layout. This means you can give a room a completely different orientation, make better use of the available space or even combine an old laundry with a bathroom.

Whether you are renovating for profit, updating a rental property or trying to make your home feel more modern there are choices you can make like installing a new bathtub, two person walk in shower or double sink vanity. The possibilities are practically endless, just limited by budget and available space.

Renovate using the latest bathroom styles

Get inspiration from magazines, pinterest or hardware suppliers

Some people will renovate their bathroom using interior design trends that they see or read about in magazines or from modern designers. If you have a particular look you want to achieve or you’d like to follow a modern trend we are able to help you build a bathroom using the same materials, products and construction techniques. Floor tiles, timber vanities, mirrors, lighting, windows or even sky lights can all be used to create a unique, modern bathroom to suit your tastes & interior design goals.

Renovate in a house

Renovating houses is our most popular building contracted service because there are so many older homes in Sydney. In most situations we completely strip the existing room to start from a bare frame before installing new flooring, waterproofing and PC items. 

We don’t sell ‘kits’ or ‘makeovers’ – what we offer is the ability for you to craft a designer bathroom with each item custom made or chosen to your tastes and budget.


Renovate in a unit

Most units in Sydney are relatively new as housing density in New South Wales has changed slowly over the last few years with a lot of high rise blocks being built. Older units can be renovated just as easily as a house as all the fundamentals are similar.

The biggest difference is the proximity of dwellings and shared walls. We can handle all of those existing conditions to complete a renovation whether it is a rental unit or your apartment.

Install a new bathtub or walk in shower

A popular renovation choice is to add a bath tub into a room. There are so many modern products that are back to the wall designs or freestanding with deep sides. Depending on the property we can install a new bath and make sure that it can be used safely with the right flooring re-enforcement to handle the weight.


Affordable bathroom renovations in Sydney

Every home owner has lots of questions relating to renovating a bathroom, here are some of the most common ones


Passion Built is a bathroom renovation company located in Alexandria. We don’t have a showroom because we provide a mobile service where we come to you. We are able to do renovations in all suburbs of Sydney by sourcing materials from multiple locations & getting them delivered to your site.

Generally speaking renovating part of your house in Alexandria or individual rooms will be cheaper than to rebuild. Although it depends on the extent of the building work required.

For older homes on large block of land it could be more economical to build a granny flat or studio in the backyard instead of renovating the existing rooms. While some single storey houses might benefit from adding another level to create an entirely new living area.

Each method has its pros and cons but if you are on a tight budget then you can use some clever renovating techniques to keep costs in control to give your home a new look.

Normally it can be 20-30% more to do a rebuild vs renovating. We can do a site assessment and provide a written, fixed price quotation.

According to Hi Pages the average cost to renovate a living room is between $10,000 and $15,000. Although this average changes quickly if the flooring is going to be changed, walls moved or expensive materials are chosen.

Bathrooms & kitchens will typically cost between $15,000 and $30,000 to do a complete renovation but these rooms will also add the most value to a property compared to adding a garage or doing landscaping.

The cost to renovate in Alexandria isn’t really that much different to other suburbs of Sydney unless you are living on an island or a steep block with difficult access.

The other big variable is whether you live in a heritage-listed property which may also require special approvals before changing any of its features.

Passion Built is a licensed builder in Alexandria that can be hired as a contractor for home renovations anywhere in New South Wales.

We have $10,000,000 in public liability insurance and provide HIA Home Warranty Insurance for all projects over $20,000 to give you peace of mind. This is backed with our 10-year warranty on the work we complete.

Hiring Passion Built as a contractor for your home renovation is easy with a simple to follow process that includes a fixed price quotation with no hidden surprises.

This makes it simple to hire us for any type of building work needed like a bathroom renovation.

Passion Built complete bathroom renovation company for combined bathroom and laundry in a unit in Lane Cove

Yes, we can renovate your property to combine a laundry and bathroom. This might require the removal of a wall or relocating your plumbing to accommodate the washing machine. Either way it is possible and some people do this to create more space or to improve the practicality of their home. So many modern appliances work very efficiently so heat or moisture isn’t a problem while many people don’t need a big sink in their laundry like the old days.

Well for sure you can spend $1,000, $2000 or $20,000 on a renovation. There is no fixed minimum amount that is required although whether that is a sensible amount to spent will depend on your situation & what you want to achieve. We are a contractor that specialises in doing complete bathroom renovations where the whole room is stripped back to the timber or brick framework. This type of bathroom renovation is the most expensive, but also delivers the best quality finish. If you want a renovation that costs less than $10,000 then that is a makeover where you use the existing items and give them a freshen up with new paint, taps and fittings, but leave everything else. Typically most people are trying to renovate a house with an eye on increasing its value, therefore you have to be careful how much is spent. There will be a point where the value of any renovations won’t proportionally add value to your home. Generally speaking if the property is worth $500,000 then you should aim to spend around $50,000 and focus on the big areas like the kitchen and bathroom.
Passion Built can deliver complete bathroom renovations for houses, units, apartments or retail shops. We have extensive experience renovating bathrooms of all sizes to create new ensuites, kids bathrooms or even new floor plans that can include a freestanding bathtub. A complete bathroom renovation normally means stripping back the whole room to the bare building structure. A makeover or remodel usually means using the existing toilet / shower / bath & updating maybe the paint, lighting or taps to give the room a fresher look.
Depending on the age of the bathroom it could be more economical and efficient to do a complete bathroom renovation. Older bathrooms may have issues with the flooring, walls or even water services that can create underlying long term issues. By removing all the old items and starting again it means everything is built to current Australian standards using modern building techniques and materials.
