Exposed cisterns are a thing of the past, in the same way black-and-white televisions have vanished from our lounge rooms, says Gro Agencies manager Cameron Burbridge. While exposed cisterns are common in Australia, in Europe the majority of toilets are installed with a concealed cistern and predominantly wall-hung.
Family-owned and run for more than 30 years, Gro Agencies is a trusted local importer and wholesaler of European bathroom products. Its selection centre is open to the public, showcasing the very latest European bathroom trends, from tapware, toilets and freestanding baths, to bathroom furniture and accessories.
In the last few years, Gro Agencies’ Italian range of bathroom furniture from INDA, and TECE concealed cisterns has become sought-after by builders.
Popular options include INDA Soft Complements, a quality bathroom furniture range with attention to storage; INDA Perfetto, a new range of bathroom furniture combining a timber laminate structure with a lacquered drawer front; and Victoria & Albert Tombolo 08, a contemporary timber bath rack with built-in wine-glass holder. Victoria & Albert’s latest release, Worcester, is a thick-rim traditional freestanding bath with plinth, and can also be found in store.
The range of Italian-made ceramics from Kerasan has some breathtaking new designs to suit the modern home, including the Kerasan Buddy 100cm double-bowl sink, and Kerasan Flo pedestal pan with soft-close seat.
Distributing its products nationally to leading boutique bathroom shops around Australia, Gro Agencies’ friendly staff are there to assist every step of the way. With experience from all sides of the plumbing industry, their service and honest advice forms the backbone of the business.
