Being in lockdown for more than two months had many Australians looking to their bathrooms for some much needed spa-like sanctuary! With the colder months upon us, some interiors personalities share why they love a soak and their favourite bath designs.
Alisa and Lysandra – interior designers and former Block winners
“I love turning the lights out, lighting my candles, putting the salt in the bath, sitting back and relaxing with a glass of wine in hand, listening to my favourite business podcasts,” says Alisa.
Their favourite bath: The Kado Lussi Freestanding. “We used it in our Albert Park project and we’ve used it on The Block. It’s definitely our go-to bath.”
Bonnie, Lana and Erin – founders of Three Birds Renovations
“Our favourite thing about having a bath is that it’s so much more than just a practical way of getting clean. Done right (kids in bed!), it can be the ultimate indulgent form of relaxation. We love styling our bathrooms with a stool beside the bath so that there’s a handy spot for a gorgeous candle, a glass of wine and a laptop to catch up on Netflix,” they say.
Their favourite bath: The Posh Domaine Inset. “We recently used it in House 11 because it was a total lifesaver for us! It’s a small but deep bath, the perfect space-saving option when a bath is a non-negotiable.”
Tess and Luke – winners of The Block 2019
“My favourite thing about a bath is it’s your time to relax, unwind, read a book, have a wine and enjoy,” says Tess. “There is nothing more relaxing than jumping into a nice, warm bath, especially on a cold winter’s night,” adds Luke.
Their favourite bath: The Kado Neue. “We used it in our master en suite last year on The Block. It was really the focal point of the room and we absolutely love it.”
El’ise and Matt – The Block 2019 contestants
“We use our bath every single night for our children. It’s cost-effective and a time saver to be able to chuck them all in the bath together,” they say.
Their favourite bath: The Kado Lussi. “We used it twice on The Block, and that’s because of the soft curves. It’s nice and deep and it’s just a really beautiful looking bath. And it’s easy to clean.”
Mitch and Mark – The Block 2019 contestants
“Now that we’re going into winter, nothing is more relaxing and warming than having a beautiful, hot bath to relax aching, tired muscles and feel rejuvenated,” they say.
Their favourite bath: LAUFEN’s Palomba. “We picked it for the en suite on The Block. That thing was deep, it was sloping, it was insane, and also a work of art. Favourite ever.”
Andy and Deb – The Block 2019 contestants
“What I love most about having a bath is closing the door, locking it, lighting a candle, some bubble bath, relaxing and waiting for someone to knock on the door and say: ‘what are you doing in there?'” jokes Deb.
Their favourite bath: The Kado Lussi. “We loved it so much that we had it in two of our bathrooms on The Block. It’s a beautiful matte white, very organic shape, natural sort of raw look which we love, and it really complemented everything else in our bathroom so well.”
