Time to bring your laundry to life! You probably spend more time than you want there, so why not make it a beautiful space that you enjoy being in? Make it functional, too. The right tub and tapware will inject convenience and a little sparkle into your daily chores.
“Laundries are being transformed into beautifully styled spaces with timber benchtops and plenty of storage. Lots of laundries are even converted to include a second bathroom. You can really complete the look with a stylish tub or sink and statement taps.”

Some are big, some are small. Some are hidden, some are exposed. We’re still talking about laundry rooms of course. The point is, every laundry is set up, designed and used differently.
Do you wash your dog in your laundry tub? Where do you sort and fold your washing? Do visitors walk through your laundry? Is there a bathroom attached, or would you like there to be one day?
Our showroom consultants recommend long-lasting, quality products for your laundry. This isn’t shameless upselling. It’s because they know you’d rather set it and forget it. There are other rooms you’d probably rather redecorate or upgrade over the years. Choose laundry products that stand the test of time.

What’s the number one thing people look for in a laundry tub? A lot of our customers want a sink that can hold ice for a party. Good thing we have a wide range so you can find a tub that looks good and keeps your beers cold. And soaks your laundry. Obviously. If it’s doubling as an ice bucket, you don’t want awkward taps getting in the way. We also give you
plenty of options for tapware. Overall, our range of laundry tubs and taps allows function and style to come together.
Laundry tubs come in a variety of materials including, acrylic, cast iron, stainless steel and ceramic. Some are moulded from polymer and others have polymer coatings, which is an effective way to make metal even more durable. Stainless steel is still the most common, with brushed stainless steel becoming more and more popular for its smooth, contemporary look.
You don’t have to limit yourself to searching for laundry products. Broader bathroom and kitchen tapware ranges and kitchen sink ranges are also suitable for your laundry room. There’s no reason your laundry room can’t have the same stunning matte black fittings as your bathroom, or the same copper sink as your kitchen. Keep in mind that the laundry may be more prone to scratching and abrasion, especially if you wash pets or sporting equipment there.
