You may have seen our $500 laundry reno on here, well we’ve done another one, this time on our rental property. Total cost just over $600!
The space was smaller than our last reno but we added a little more storage this time around by putting in a wall cabinet.
We ripped out the old trough & cabinet, put in 2 practa base cabinets, 1000mm & 500mm) and then used the acacia benchtop. We cut down the benchtop and used the leftover to make a shelf on the side to fill the space and also make it more usuable.
We used the Estilo trough/sink again, and we used a jigsaw to cut a hole in the benchtop and top of the base cabinet to install it.
As we left the taps where they were, the only plumping that needed to be done was unhooking the pipe from the old trough and reattaching it to the new one.
We also had to cut a hole in the bottom of the 1000mm base cabinet and the shelf for the pipes to run through.
For the tiling we kept it simple and cheap with the gloss white tiles, as we wanted the benchtop to stay the main feature.
We did the tiling ourselves, the only time we’ve done tiling before was in our last laundry reno, which we self taught ourselves by watching YouTube tiling tutorials.
We left the taps for the washing machine alone as being a rental it allows for a top or front loader and also left the space above it to allow for a dryer to be either wall mounted or stacked onto the washing machine.
Overall for around $600 we are very happy with the outcome, and I’m sure our tenants will appreciate the extra storage.
Here’s a complete breakdown of the total cost (everything from Bunnings):
1x Practa 1000mm vase cabinet - $111
1x Practa 500mm 3 draw base cabinet - $117
1x Practa 1000mm wall cabinet - $81
1x Acacia hardwood benchtop - $99
1x Estilo 615x550mm trough - $130
2x 6pk White gloss tiles - $30
Other bits & pieces like the tile adhesive, grout, screws, no gaps etc cost us around $50 - a lot of it we already had.

Another amazing transformation right there. Apart from looking fabulous, it appears extremely functional as well.
Many thanks for providing all the details and products used in the project as I trust our members will find them helpful.
My favourite bit of it is the benchtop, the wood grain is beautiful and I think it really pops as a nice feature 😊
Another great example of what we can do with our laundry. Thanks so much for sharing the cost breakdown too, that’s very helpful.
