Australian bathroom and kitchen brands Caroma , Fowler, Dorf and Clark recently played a key part in the successful reality television program ‘From The Ground Up’ which screened on the Ten Network from October 2010 to January 2011.
Each brand was a major sponsor of the show and supplied products for the four homes, which the contestants built from scratch at Murray’s Beach in NSW. To fit out the homes the four couples selected from a wide selection of product ranges including toilet suites, baths, mixer taps and sinks.
Tamryn Kyselov, ‘From the Ground Up’ contestant and qualified interior designer explained, “I think this show is great not only for builders and renovators, but also those interested in interior decoration and design,” “We were really given a lot of freedom to pick and choose our own concepts.”
Each of the four couples designed their bathrooms differently along specific design themes. These themes were ‘Nester’, ‘Entertainer’, ‘Investor’ and ‘Resort’.
Cam and Shanina, winners of the television series, designed their home around the ‘Nester’ theme, creating a home for those who have earned their chance to relax and enjoy what life has to offer. They opted for a classic yet elegant design in their bathroom.
Cam and Shanina used the Caroma Caravelle 2000 toilet suite with incorporated Smartflush water saving technology to create a well appointed and stylish main bathroom. The Caroma Caravelle toilet suite boasts easy to clean rounded contours, paired with the matching Caravelle vanity basin. Dorf Maxum basin and bath tap sets were included in the bathroom for their affordable style.
Keeping the classic theme consistent but with an extra feel of luxury, a Caroma Geo wall faced toilet suite and above counter basin was chosen for the ensuite bathroom.
A minimalist look was created in the kitchen and included the Clark Epure Evolution sink coupled with the sharp, intense lines of the Dorf Jovian sink mixer.
Executive Producer of ‘From The Ground Up’, Stuart Stevens, said he was thrilled for such well known and much loved Australian brands to be a part of the show.
“We thank each of the brands for their involvement in the show. It would not have been a success without reputable and committed sponsors like them,” he said.
