KBDi’s Designer Awards program was once again buoyed by the generous support of E & S Trading. As one of Victoria’s oldest family-owned specialist kitchen, bathroom and laundry retailers, E & S Trading are committed to our industry, and their sponsorship of this year’s bathroom awards is great evidence of this.

Managing Director, Rob Sinclair (pictured, right) was delighted to present the top bathroom award to Perth designer, Kyle McGregor (Lux Interiors). Kyle took home a prize package valued at $1,500 and the title of KBDi Australian Bathroom Designer of the Year 2019. See what the judges loved about his winning design, and those of his fellow State winners, below.

The judging panel unanimously and absolutely adored this curvaceous bathroom. They were awed by the designer’s approach to an otherwise ordinary space: with its curving divider, organically-shaped bulkhead, sumptuous finishes and spilling natural light, they deemed it to be the well-deserved winner in a fierce competition.

With creative planning, superb selections and a very keen eye for detail, the designer has turned a very ordinary space into something quite extraordinary. The judges loved the thoughtful combination of finishes and timeless design appeal of this beautiful bathroom, and commended the designer on an excellent presentation.

The judging panel commended this designer on a stand-out resolution of a complicated space. The client’s brief was demanding, and the restraints of the existing space were substantial. With some intelligent planning and delightful detailing, the designer overcame all challenges, creating a stunning bathroom and a well-deserved win.

The client wanted a luxurious, restorative space, and the designer delivered! The judges admired the dynamic selection of tiles, fixtures and fittings, and the sensory effects achieved with their contrasting textures and finishes. They commended the designer on her planning and detailing, and deemed this dramatic space to be a winner.

The designer resolved an awkward space with a clever design solution. The judges loved the sense of drama created within the room, and acknowledged the designer’s determination to link the new bathroom to the remaining home with a thoughtful application of finishes.

This luxurious master suite oozes luxury and style, while cleverly maintaining a sense of warmth and homeliness. The designer has created a peaceful and serene bedroom area, inspired by a blissful bay view. A fully-fitted walk-in-robe provides plentiful storage with an opulent feel, and the ensuite is simply stunning. The judges commended the designer’s clever use of lighting in a dark and moody space.
