As all splashbacks are custom made, as a result the kitchen must be fully installed, including the bench tops before we can measure and quote.

Tracey safemail (Woonona, Wollongong)
Keith from Tuff Stuff Design recently provided quote and installed a Frameless Shower Screen and mirror for us.
The quote was provided on-site same day as we rang with initial enquiry and we decided to proceed with order immediately. The price quoted was much lower than same products from other local providers we had contacted.
Within one week the screen and mirror were installed as promised. Keith provided great customer service and we are extremely happy with end result.
"Keith from Tuff Stuff was the most professional!"
Monica Struzman safemail (Monterey - Sydney)
I recently had to renovate my bathroom due to a hot water pipe bursting and my bathroom becoming a construction site overnight.
I dealt with many tradesmen during the course of getting it back to life, and I must say, Keith from Tuff Stuff was the most professional and went out of his way to get my new frameless shower screen done for me, knowing I was in a bit of a bind.
He provided a very competitive quote and was always punctual in returning my calls and completing the work.
I would recommend Keith to anyone.
He was honest and told me what to look out for when sourcing other quotes and I couldn’t help but go back to him!
What was once an ugly small tiny shower space, was transformed into a larger shower area that looks so much better, thank you!

"He solved the problem in a way that left the fancy bathroom designers scatching their heads"
Stephen Mouat safemail (North Curl Curl - North Sydney, Sydney)
I am usually suspicious of the lowest quote but when Keith told me he could have it installed in half the time
of both the others I invited him around. He solved the problem of my narrow bathroom & wide shower next to door
in a way that left the fancy bathroom designers scatching their heads.
