Default Water smells like paint when first run

Hi

I recently bought a house that was recently renovated before we bought it. We have noticed that in the mornings the first time our ensuite tap or the shower is run, the water smells/tastes like paint. After it has been running for a few minutes, the smell seems to go away. However, the next morning I experience the same thing. I have also noticed this in our basement bathroom sink which is rarely used. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks.

What type of plumbing did they run to the sinks? Post a pic if you don't know.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm not sure what kind of pipes are run to the sinks, but I took a picture of underneath the ensuite sink:

Let me know if this gives you enough information. They look like PVC pipes to me.
