Perth's Specialist in Quality and Customised
HI, I’M CAMERON, MANAGING DIRECTOR AND FOUNDER OF SMART STYLE BATHROOMS SINCE FEBRUARY 2008.
I’m 36 years old, married to the beautiful Caitlin and enjoy mountain biking, kayaking and motor-biking.
From a youngster, I’ve worked in the building industry – spending school holidays on building sites, upgrading the family home and undertaking an apprenticeship as a wall-and-floor tiler, focusing on new homes.
All of my early experience was a bit of an eye opener on how some companies operated with such poor standards, ethics and service.
So I jumped at the chance to work for a craftsman who specialised in bathrooms and kitchens and loved to impart his wealth of knowledge on me, particularly, that bathrooms require nearly as many trades as building a new home. Also, it’s a rare breed of tradespeople who can deliver a high-quality product with great customer service – knowing how to delicately work in peoples’ homes with cleanliness, excellent communication and efficiency.
Soon after, I was running my own team, remaining actively involved in the work, and also renovating my first home. I turned a 1950s asbestos war service home into a 1920s replica weatherboard cottage complete with French doors, lead light windows and feature timber fretwork throughout. It sold like hotcakes and broke the suburb record!
I guess you could say that when I’m not renovating I am…renovating! Smart Style was born out of a small team with countless renovations behind them, boundless enthusiasm and a dream to offer an unmatched level of quality, efficiency and happy clients throughout Perth, which remains the vision today – just with a growing team that has now renovated well over 1000 bathrooms, laundries, toilets and kitchens for a lot of happy home owners.
We have experienced a multitude of change in trends, designs, products, technologies and market conditions and actively seek feedback from our customers to keep evolving and serve you better, while heavily investing in behind-the-scenes technologies such as 3D imaging so you can see your complete renovation before we even start construction.
I am lucky to have some of the best team members known in the industry, who share the same vision and have been with us from day one. I hope we can be the company you choose to work with to create your smart and stylish bathroom!
You can select products from the comfort of your own home and experience a great peace of mind
as our interior designers will come to you to see the unique size, shape and natural light signature
of your renovating space.

LYNNEStudiously working behind the scenes to ensure our finance and processing and day-to-day running of projects are all in order is our vibrant administrator Lynne.
Born in South Africa and starting out in banking, Lynne’s flexible and eager approach saw her taking up a position in trading before moving to England where she lived for eight years, got married, had twin girls and worked for a print management company in administration and account management of companies such retailer JD Sports.
In 2010, as most do, Lynne and her family relocated to Australia for its incredible weather and relaxed lifestyle and joined the Smart Style team four years later.
Lynne comes with first-hand renovating and building experience. Together with her qualified quantity surveyor husband, they updated the kitchen and bathroom in their English home and built their new family home in Perth.
She will go above and beyond to help get the job done and says her dedication to Smart Style has been further inspired by witnessing its trustworthy and professional leadership that’s focused on producing a firstclass finish on every project.
Lynne enjoys unwinding with a good TV series such as Call the Midwife, Game of Thrones and police dramas.
SCOTTOur supervisor Scott is known for his incredibly supportive and approachable manner in liaising between the Smart Style team and our clients.
Scott thrives on multi-tasking the demands of your renovation. He has the practical building experience to make sure that what you want is carefully translated into ‘trade language’ so that you’re 100 per cent satisfied with the end result.
Completing a double degree in tourism and marketing at Murdoch University, Scott worked for a five-star hotel before moving into commercial gyprocking, followed by carpentry for a company that focused on home renovations. He has also undertaken a HIA supervisor’s course that has strengthened his ability to direct every trade required to build and renovate an entire house – from modern constructions to delicate heritage homes.
Scott joined the Smart Style team in 2011 and likes the variety renovating brings to his daily life, its problem-solving nature and overseeing every onsite aspect of the process. His key advice for new renovators is to know that unplanned and different issues will arise with every renovation but leave it to the professionals to work out how to fix it, homeowners do not need to worry!
Scott speaks fluent Spanish, enjoys playing golf and walking his dog, Amigo.
JONJon joined the Smart Style team as a fully licenced plumber and has effortlessly moved into one of our supervisor roles due to his fastidious nature and strong work ethic.
After completing his plumber’s apprenticeship in 2007, he joined forces with a friend to start a plumbing company that focused on unit developments.
Jon also gained FIFO experience, which broadened his idea of the professional tradesman industry in WA but eventually turned back to the plumber’s life in Perth after opting for more family time. In 2014, Jon felt refreshed getting back into the trade he meticulously trained and worked in – dedicated plumbing – this time on new housing and renovations.
Jon’s hands-on approach in completing your bathroom to Smart Style’s high-quality workmanship guarantee and easy-going manner combined with an in-depth understanding of Australian standards and his out-of-thebox problem solving ensures he will confidently direct your renovation so you won’t have anything to worry about.
He recharges on weekends by doing ‘anything outdoors’ such as mountain biking and scuba diving or taking his two young daughters to the local park.
MarkLabourerMark boasts a variety of professional skills – as he puts it: “I’ve done a bit of everything”.
From construction, manufacturing and warehousing to imports and exports, and being a certified fumigator, he is also a qualified chef – a helpful hint for when you meet him onsite during your renovation! Born in Darwin, raised in country NSW, and having lived in both Perth and Sydney, it was Perth that drew him back five years ago to begin renovation work before joining the Smart Style team. He enjoys working alongside others, the physicality of the industry and thrives on watching a renovation from demolition through to completion. This also extends to his personal life: “I like reading but I don’t really stick to one author, I like to change it up and I’m a bit stubborn – even if I don’t like it, I’ll read it until the end”.
KieranLabourerContinuing on the family tradition, Kieran’s father is part of Smart Style, but in his own right Keiran has brought an array of experience to the team.
He completed his fitter-wielder apprenticeship in his home country New Zealand, helped construct a timber mill while working on a WA farm and spent three years in installation. One of his key strengths has been learning quickly on each job he has embraced. Kieran enjoys the different challenges Smart Style offers across every renovation and being face to face with clients. “If clients ask a question while we’re working, we’re able to give them an answer. We all treat their home like our own, if we wouldn’t be happy with it being in our place then we wouldn’t do it in their home”. His love of rugby union isn’t surprising with his NZ roots but when he’s not on a Smart Style renovation site he also loves spending time with his young son.
BrendanPlumber and gasfitterBrendan jumped into plumbing and gasfitting back in school days as part of his work experience because he loved the outdoors and the trades’ industry allowed him to incorporate that in his professional life.
He has been working as a tradesman for the past decade, mostly on new housing. Brendan holds his plumbing contractor’s, gasfitter, and backflow (cross-contamination of water) licences. He says the Smart Style team take great pride in what they do and he personally loves to see that he’s done a good job. “The best part is seeing my finished work, it’s why I’ve been doing this for so long”. On the weekends, Brendan is usually found surfing or catching up with friends and plays social cricket throughout the week.
AidenCarpenterAiden gained his carpentry qualifications at the age of 19 and has worked on every type of construction from humble homes to million-dollar mansions, renovations and businesses.
Born and raised down in WA’s stunning south coast getaway region, Aiden moved to Perth city to expand his carpentry business. However, with his dedication to the building industry, his skills extend beyond carpentry alone. An allrounder, Aiden is able to help out on renovations as the needs arise including brick work, tiling and concreting among other experience. “Smart Style is a good team of people to work with, and it’s challenging work. I enjoy talking to clients and discussing the job with them. I like to be hands-on and walk away from a renovation feeling proud of how it’s turned out.” Taking time out from city life, Aiden likes to regularly head down south to see his family, dive and fish.
