Reece rituals: how and where we celebrate our summer break

Friday, December 22nd 2017

Return to the Powder Room

It’s that sometimes weary, mostly cheery and always indulgent time of year. Like everyone else, the team at Reece are ready to kick back and relax. Where do we go and what do we do when we step beyond the bathroom zone?

With the final days of 2017 rolling on through, most of us are lucky enough to get a little break from our daily routine and find time for family, friends and our favourite indulgences. And behind the bathroom door, our staff are just regular folk, with a whole range of summer activities planned.

Get to know the faces behind the counter.

What are your holiday plans?

This year will be a little different for me. My parents are moving back to Australia after being overseas for the past 13 years, so it will be really special to have them here in Melbourne for Christmas. I’m also looking forward to spending time with friends, hitting the shops for a great sale, relaxing on the beaches and decorating my new place.   

Favourite summer indulgence: Food! Sitting back with great company with a large antipasto/tapas plate and enjoying a nice ice cold drink (or two) on the water –  absolute perfection.

Dream bathroom products:  Kado Freestanding Bath, Milli Axon Bath Rack (the dream combo!).

Dayna, Assistant Manager, Reece Bathroom Life Indooroopilly

What are your holiday plans?

My plans involve the pool, family and lots of pavlova! Mix in with that some cob loaf, board games and ice cold drink – that’s Summer perfection.

Favourite summer indulgence: My number one would have to be pavlova.

Dream bathroom products: Laufen Ino Counter Basin and Methven Aio Aurajet shower.

Cassie, Branch Manager, Reece Bathroom Life Osborne Park

What are your holiday plans?

This Summer break will be spent spending some well deserved time with my daughter. And another bonus, meeting my new niece or nephew early in the new year.

Favourite summer indulgence: Tuning into the Ashes on Boxing Day. The perfect day to relax after Christmas.

Dream bathroom products: Kado Neue Freestanding Bath and Roca Inspira basins.

Louise, Assistant Manager, Reece Bathroom Life Mosman Park

What are your holiday plans?

A five day break will allow me to take advantage of spending as much time as possible with the family. Most of my family live in the UK, so there is always someone missing at Christmas. Luckily, with the help of technology, we can still communicate and see each other at the same time, even though we are 12,000km apart.

Favourite summer indulgence: Switching off and laying in my hammock listening to music. It’s a simple indulgence, but I love it.

Dream bathroom products: Omvivo Ergobath and Stiebel Eltron underfloor heating.

Jessica, Assistant Manager, Reece Bathroom Life Waterloo

What are your holiday plans?

It's been such a fast and busy year, so my plans involve relaxing and spending some quality time with family and friends.

Favourite summer indulgence: Because Sydney has such beautiful beaches, my number one indulgence would be taking a morning walk from Bondi to Coogee and then spending the rest of the day enjoying a BBQ with family and friends.

Dream bathroom products: ISSY Glide Mirror, Laufen Ino Basin, Milli Pure tapware and heated towel rails.

If spending your holiday in a state of total relaxation isn’t quite your thing, perhaps you can use the time to begin planning your bathroom reno? Use our renovation guide to start the journey.

And finally, from the team at Reece, we wish you all the best for the holiday break and joyful start to the new year.
