The KBDi Australian Bathroom Designer of the Year 2017 was proudly sponsored by E & S Trading, along with all of the bathroom category awards presented at a glittering gala event held in Adelaide on 16 September.

E & S Trading’s Managing Director, Rob Sinclair, was delighted to present Victoria’s Vanessa Cook (Smarter Bathrooms & Kitchens) with the coveted title and associated trophy for KBDi Australian Bathroom Designer of the Year 2017.

Vanessa’s entry impressed the judging panel, with the designer presenting a future-proof solution for her clients. A layout that would meet the needs of the family now and in years to come required the repositioning of the toilet (and its associated plumbing), the removal of a large bath and the relocation of an air conditioning duct. The effort proved worthwhile, with the designer presenting a practical and beautiful bathroom design solution that will suit the clients’ changing needs.

With the support of E & S Industries, Vanessa was rewarded with a $2,500 travel and accommodation voucher. This prize is designed to encourage winners to further their professional development by attending a major international design fair, and we’re looking forward to sharing Vanessa’s tour highlights with you next year!
