House of Home Bathware Excellence Awards

June 01, 2018
House of Home Bathware Excellence Awards

It’s time! House of Home are pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Bathware Excellence Awards.

This year’s awards have been very exciting with thousands of votes from Australian bathware enthusiasts. The results for all of the categories were incredibly close which reflects the unique design qualities that each nominee offers.

“The nominees in all categories inspire with their passion for design and creativity. Their innovative designs showcase the best of Australian bathroom design and designers.

We love the outstanding selection of refined, modern and architecturally designed products that show a strong attention to detail." Eve Gunson | Dot & Pop

“When it comes to choosing bathware for a new bathroom or renovation, Australians are spoiled for choice. The shortlist of manufacturers should be commended on producing on-trend, quality fixtures for Australian bathrooms.

Quality, design, function and price are integral parts to choosing the right fixture for a bathroom.

When a manufacturer nails all these categories, it gives the renovator confidence with their bathware choices.” Bec Senyard | The Plumbette

We would like to thank our judging panel, voters and wider community for their participation in celebrating the outstanding product design and innovation of the Australian bathware industry.

Without further ado, drum roll please…


Best Tapware Brand: Phoenix

Highly Commended for Tapware: Methven

Shortlisted: Brodware, Faucet Strommen, Jamie J, Astrawalker, Millenium & Ikon


Best Shower Brand: Phoenix

Highly Commended for Shower: Methven and Meir

Shortlisted: Brodware, Hansgrohe, Con-Serv, Nero & Gro Agencies

“As the leading online retailer of Phoenix Tapware in Australia we are thrilled with their achievements in the House of Home Excellence awards – although not surprised. Some of the things we look for in a supplier are quality products, outstanding customer service and design excellence.

Phoenix Tapware continues to deliver year after year.

From their new NX Range to the more traditional Nostalgia range, they stay really current and their attention to detail shows in their designs. Ordering Phoenix Tapware is a smooth and easy process as they keep all items in stock. There are no wait times for specialty finishes such as matte black or gun metal, unlike other suppliers that may have lead times in excess of 12 weeks. We would like to sincerely congratulate Phoenix and we will no doubt see them at the top again next year.” Christine|Online Bathroomware


Best Vanity Brand: Timberline

Highly Commended for Vanity: ADP

Shortlisted: BelBagno, Fienza, Ingrain, Rifco, Inda & Ledin

"First class quality and a full manufacturer’s warranty are a given, and their innovation is setting the pace in the bathroom as furniture becomes a central feature.

The bathroom used to be the room in the house that the door was kept closed, but not now especially with the look of Timberline." Mark Swindon|Bentons


Best Bathtub Brand: Vizzini

Highly Commended for Bathtub: Decina and Forme

Shortlisted: Castano, Kaskade, Studio Bagno, Dado & BelBagno

It doesn’t surprise me that Vizzini has taken out the best bathtubs category.

I have been selling Vizzini baths for almost four years now and have always been impressed by how excellent and reliable their quality has been. Vizzini has always been very innovative, constantly bringing out new designs of freestanding baths and drop in baths. Vizzini’s acryclic and stone baths in particular are always in high demand. The Sabano freestanding bath is popular for its simplicity and multiple size and finish options along with the Alberta stone bath for its stunning beauty.” Craig Callery|Renovation Kingdom

Congratulations to our winners!

We would like to also recognise the evolving quality of production and design in the bathware industry as a whole.

“Bathroom renovations have come a long way. The innovative products currently on the market offer the consumer an endless choice of beautifully crafted bathware that is both avant-garde and yet timeless.

The products we nominated for The House of Home 2018 Bathware Excellence Awards are amongst some of our favourites, and highly recommend to customers quite regularly. These products are some of the best on the market and offer superior quality, functionality and durability. All our products are backed by a substantial warranty, so our customers can trust and love the products they buy from us.” Mary Todarello | Total Bathroom Centre
