The Reece Beautiful Bathroom Competition has completed its annual search to find Australia’s best bathrooms for 2012.

The Australian bathroom products supplier revealed the winning bathroom and the two bathrooms that won the Australian ‘people’s choice’.

People’s Choice winner – Cottles Bridge VIC

According to Reece:

The overall winner was a monochromatic retreat, a beautiful open bathroom connected to the master bedroom in the home. With sleek, modern lines mixed in with traditional touches, the bathroom features twin Porcher basins complemented by chic Scala tapware while the elegant timber screens create a calming sense of privacy.

Winning bathroom owner Jon was adamant that “a freestanding bath was a must”, a look that was key for all entries into the competition for 2012. The two bathrooms that received the highest number of votes from the Australian public also featured stunning freestanding baths.

With the majority of the Australian votes, the ‘natural beauty’ bathroom from Cottles Bridge, VIC, impressed thanks to its amazingly unique look. The seamless blend of natural materials, simple lines and luxurious, modern fittings, including its striking freestanding bath, created a divine day-spa-at-home.

The ‘calming influence’ bathroom space from Highfields, NSW, equaled the highest number of votes from the

Australian public thanks to its chic freestanding bath perched on a mezzanine floor. Using soft, natural colours and organically inspired fixtures and fittings, the bathroom space is a real haven.
