On Friday we received a bombardment of emails from the builder regarding the plumbing selections they need. So this weekend is being spent in a flurry of checking and double-checking.
Luckily, we’ve been (mostly) prepared for this round. My endless back and forth with plumbing suppliers is about to come to fruition! Here is the result of my tapware obsessing.
We splashed out on some of the fixtures here. I wanted a big (i.e. massive) main sink, but we wanted the secondary sinks to be smaller and less obtrusive. I’d spotted the Oliveri Sonetto sink about 2 years ago (at Good Guys I think) and fell in love with it. I hope it lives up to expectations!Island sink: Mercer Bass 3/4 bowl undermount. Found this one on display at Argent in Osborne Park and liked the size.
Bar mixer: Armando Vicario Lucia SK3 Square Side Lever Mixer. Not on display anywhere, so this is a bit of a gamble.
EnsuiteSpa: Novelli Kamiyu spa bath. This is my must-have indulgence item. I’ve wanted a spa bath ever since I knew of the existence of spas! I chose this one because of it minimalistic looks. Even though I’m not really into minimalism as such. I just liked it.
Bath spout: Parisi Blade Waterfall Hob Bath Spout. We had so much drama trying to find a hob-mounted bath spout we both liked. They’re hard to come by, most of them are wall-mounted. I think this suits the shape of the bath.
Shower mixer: Parisi Ellisse Wall Mixer on Small Plate. I discovered the Parisi Ellisse range at Sea of White and fell in love with the proportions. I got overruled on this for the ensuite but managed to sneak it into the guest bathroom. Will be interesting to see how it performs compared to the Hansgrohe.
Laundry sink: Mercer BS090 – X mega bowl. I like big tubs and I cannot lie!
Whew! We still need to specify towel rails and that sort of thing, but it’s not required for plumbing so can do it later.
