Dave did a complete bathroom and laundry replacement in our home, including new tiling, windows, cabinetry, vanity, bath/shower, exhaust, appliance/fittings installation, underfloor heating, lighting, doors, and it all looks so amazing, it feels like we’re entering a 5 star hotel! Not only did Dave do a superb job on both these rooms, he was the cleanest and most considerate tradesperson I’ve ever met. Dave has a very high work ethic, always striving for excellence in his workmanship. If you want to go with someone you trust will do his utmost to provide a quality end product, give Dave a call!

Dave Smith of Peninsula Contemporary Bathrooms has just completed an amazing transformation of our two bathrooms, laundry and WC. After speaking to a number of his previous clients, my wife and I expected an exceptional standard of work and weren’t disappointed. Dave introduced us to Rebecca Cardamone of Ace Property Agency for assistance with selection of fixtures, design and drawings. This provided a solid basis for quoting project cost and duration. With regular consultation, Dave made sure throughout construction that we were happy with the way that the design features were coming together. With over 30 years’ experience, he made some really good suggestions for cost savings and to improve the final appearance and functionality of each room. Unlike some builders, Dave only works on one project at a time so was always on site from start to finish. He has a long-standing relationship with a number of independent, quality tradespeople who attended on relevant days to keep the schedule moving smoothly. Our part of the project was to purchase tiles, taps and other fixtures. We found Dave to have a very pleasant manner and be thoroughly reliable, honest and timely. He was able to keep the property remarkably clean, even during the demolition phase. We now understand why Dave & his company (Peninsula Contemporary Bathrooms) continue to win Best of Houzz awards. They set the highest standard in attention to detail and service. We have no hesitation in recommending Dave for your next bathroom project. Read More

Peninsula Contemporary Bathrooms’ Dave Smith demolished and rebuilt our bathroom, ensuite and powder room and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. Dave is a talented master builder who does the screed, waterproofing and tiling himself, so he knows the work is completed to his high standard, and uses an excellent team for all other trades. We also wanted new louvre windows installed in theses rooms and then decided to get a new roof. Dave, with his building expertise and contacts, recommended a roofing company and sorted out a few other building issues for us. Dave is a perfectionist who takes extreme pride in his work, keeps you updated with options and progress throughout the renovation, is extremely organised, reliable and trustworthy and keeps the worksite clean and tidy. We’ve come to realise there are bathrooms and then there are bathrooms. We have no hesitation in recommending Peninsula Contemporary Bathrooms. Dave went above and beyond. Read More


My husband and I highly recommend Peninsular Contemporary Bathrooms for those who want a premium quality bathroom. Their attention to detail, excellent communication, fastidiousness and expertise in all areas of what is indeed a complex room are exemplary and extremely professional. We too ended up with a very stylish, functional bathroom without fault. We enjoyed all our dealings with Peninsular Contemporary Bathrooms, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Read More

Dave did a wonderful job on our complex, high end renovation. I am a tricky client, but our client builder relationship worked better than I could have hoped. No doubt this was because Dave has a very high attention to detail, takes great pride in his work and genuinely wants you to be happy with every little detail. He also has a good memory for the little things that come up in conversation – but could so easily be forgotten. Perhaps most importantly, Dave is fair, honest and a pleasure to have around. He respects the family’s space and works in around you as he goes about his business. In our case we had some unusual requests that involved things Dave hadn’t done before. He planned everything out methodically so that there were no stuff ups. Ten out of ten. Would highly recommend. Read More

I enjoyed ripping out a very old and tired bathroom but decided to leave it to the expert to rebuild. Dave did a fantastic job. He understands every aspect of these complicated rooms, from waterproofing to tiling, finishing and beyond, and his eye for detail is great. We ended up with a very smart and space efficient room that is stylish and built to last. I highly recommend Dave as a premium bathroom builder. Read More

My wife and I highly recommend Dave Smith from Peninsula Contemporary Bathrooms. We engaged Dave at the start of December 2020 with an ambitious aim of having our unit bathroom completely gutted and renovated by Christmas. We specified a detailed project with large format tiles, lineal drain, underfloor heating, perimeter LED lighting, heated towel racks, LED vanity mirror, fabrication of a large shower nook with LED lighting etc etc. Without the benefit of working drawings to build from, he set out a schedule that had us in by the 24th of December and he kept to it. We asked Dave to deliver a very high standard of workmanship and he delivered above those high expectations. He is very communicative and engaged us at every stage to ensure that we understood the process and that we were happy with the decisions and actions taking place. His input on everything from tile selection to design ideas and ergonomics was spot on and thankfully we listened to him – as a result we have the luxury of a bathroom that is a joy to use. Highly recommended. Read More

With his command and knowledge of the trade, Dave found a fairly simple solution to our problem that had been created by an unprofessional, inefficient and irresponsible tradesman. It was a very tricky repair job that Dave most graciously accepted to do. His ingenious solution to the problem saved us a huge expense that otherwise we would have had to incur. His good nature and honesty, his integrity and his professionalism is highly commendable. He goes that extra mile and takes pride in his creative work. Thank you Dave for a job well done Read More

When our 20-year old bathroom wall collapsed, due to zero original waterproofing, the replacement search produced Dave Smith. What a find ! Not only Dave, Master builder, true artisan, but also a great ancillary connected trade team to do the strip-out, electrics and plumbing. Dave’s organisational skills superb, did everything to promised schedule with a daily staged plan. His “office” , setup in space on our back verandah, was kept organised with a daily cleanup, scrap removed and every detail carefully considered.The planning and execution without fault. His suggestion that local Tiles by Kate would be a good supply source proved correct – 10 minutes explaining our preferences produced a great solution for wall and floor. Even at the end – when there was a minor delay in glass supply for the track shower screen, Dave kept us accurately informed when it would be completed. Obvious that Dave, a resolutely focussed bathroom craftsmen, has spent years assembling a professional team of independent trades which meet his exacting standards. We are thoroughly satisfied in every way. Caution – stick to the bathroom – don’t challenge Dave to an off-shore kayak paddle. He’s bound to beat you! Read More
