KBDi Australian Bathroom Designer of the Year 2017
With an ageing population and an increasing number of people with disabilities choosing to remain at home rather than in care, this design entry is an excellent example of what may become a typical brief, and how to best respond to ‘future-proofing’ designs to accommodate the varying physical abilities of clients. Designer Vanessa Cook (Smarter Bathrooms & Kitchens) has made thoughtful decisions with respect to layout, fixtures and fittings, designing a bathroom that is both accessible and attractive. Vanessa has finished the bathroom with timeless materials and classic styling, ensuring longevity in design. The documentation presented was clear, comprehensive and concise, and the panel commended the designer on an excellent submission.
