Bathroom Covet | Big Statements in Small Spaces

Step inside six unique bathrooms, each showcasing a meticulous approach to design within their modest confines.

While usually an unassuming space within the home, a well-thought-out bathroom can have a bold impact. Whether bringing a sense of drama through brave marble or taking a more subtle approach with handcrafted elements, we know the smaller the space, the more quality details are appreciated. Importantly, tapware not only significantly impacts the overall aesthetic – but as it is one of the most utilised devices in the home, it requires immense durability. In this edit, we look closely at the bespoke elements behind six bathrooms that maximise every square metre. While each designer takes a different approach, every bathroom shares a defining thread: Rogerseller’s quality tapware – from their European collections to their own premium Australian designed and manufactured range.

Gallery House by Architecture Works

Extending over two generous blocks, Gallery House in Melbourne takes full advantage of its lush native panorama. Cleverly-integrated courtyards throughout the home help blur the line between inside and out. While usually considered a ‘low-key’ space within the home, the powder room at Gallery House commands attention. Taking cues from the home’s garden greenery, Architecture Works combine tonal marble, walnut timber, a simple, understated Arq II wall mixer and a pond-shaped mirror. The result is not only a reminder of the Australian landscape but a robust space ready to withstand the demands of a busy family. 

Hopetoun Project by Kestie Lane Studio

In a dual-residential project collaborating with BG Architecture, Melbourne-based designer Kestie Lane employs her signature calm yet confident aesthetic. Taking a maximalist approach, Kestie carefully curates a sense of drama with a striking contrast of materials throughout both homes. Carried into the bathrooms, the powder room sets a moody yet elegant ambience through marble, glazed tiles, a dark-hued mirror and streamlined Rogerseller tapware. For Kestie, the tapware was an integral part of the design resolution. “Rogerseller products complement our design aesthetic and are finished to a very high standard. We can specify their products knowing our clients will be exceptionally satisfied,” she said.

Toorak Home by Larritt-Evans

Melbourne interior design studio Larritt-Evans reimagined a grand Toorak home for a young family to satisfy their craving for a sense of modernity. A contemporary palette of crisp whites, muted greys, natural timber and black steel-framed doors features throughout the home, as seen in the bathroom. The bathroom’s minimal material palette combines timber cabinetry with calming grey marble flowing seamlessly from floor to walls. A recessed marble ledge offers additional, convenient shelving space while a heated towel rail and single control Fukasawa mixer, both by Rogerseller, deliver effortless functionality while fusing the overall design intent.

Gridded House by Carr

Taking its name from the home’s original gridded ceiling and wall panelling, architecture and interior design studio Carr elevated the Gridded house to reveal a more generous floor plan for a busy young family. Within the master ensuite, Carr evoked a sense of calm and ease. A bespoke vanity with double basins and Rogerseller Fukasawa mixers continues the thread of functional yet sophisticated design while providing ample space for two on busy mornings.

Park Street House by Penny Kinsella Architects

Located in Melbourne, Penny Kinsella Architects reimagined this Victorian heritage terrace with her present-day interpretation. Honouring the home’s legacy while simultaneously giving it a contemporary update – largely by flooding the home with natural light. Taking design cues from the home’s past, the ground floor ensuite bathroom showcases a classic grey palette. To meet the needs of a young family, Penny leaned on honed Carrara marble, ceramic wall tiles and Rogerseller tapware. “Rogerseller fixtures epitomise the overall design philosophy behind the renovation; quality, refined design, timelessness and understated decoration,” Penny attests.

Ripponlea House by Luke Fry Architecture & Interior Design

Luke Fry Architecture revived a Melbourne family home by taking cues from the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi. Light is maximised in the narrow single-fronted site while enhancing the home’s external connection. A sense of serenity pervades the home, particularly in the bathrooms, inspired by day spas. A marble countertop provides adequate bench space atop timber cabinetry, including open shelving to meet the owner’s storage needs. Fluted glass delivers privacy, while the 100 per cent Australian-made Rogerseller Eccentric tapware with its mixer axis uniquely positioned off-centre, ties in with Luke’s imperfect wabi-sabi intent, completing this customised space.
