Australia’s Best Bathroom Competition

Now entering its fifth year, the coveted Best Bathroom Competition is a nationwide search for Australia’s best restroom facility. It's not usually a topic that comes up in conversation, but here at Total Facilities, we are encouraging you to be proud of your porcelain palace.

Whilst the majority of people consider their visit to the bathroom as a discreet experience, at Total Facilities we were on the hunt to flush out Australia’s Best Bathroom for 2019, presented in partnership with INCLEAN Magazine.

We’ve had airports, council buildings and RSLs but now it’s your turn to throw discretion to the wind and tell us about your toilets.

Entries are judged by a panel based on eligibility, design, functionality and innovation with the below criteria:

    • Design: How does the design of the bathroom, enhance or affect the environment?
    • Functionality: What considerations have been made to address or improve functionality within the space?
    • Innovation: What technology or innovative strategies have been employed to promote efficiency and cleanliness? This could include new sustainability or recycling processes to minimise the environmental impact of the facility or the introduction of technology to provide an enhanced user experience.
    • Entires will close on Friday 1 March 2019

2018 Best Bathroom Competition

Merrylands RSL Club , NSW - 2018 Winner


5-star quality bathrooms boast features and finishes rarely seen in our nation’s clubs. The seven luxurious, private female cubicles with individual basins and stylish accessories and inlay metallic bronze feature tiles are a standout.

And to prevent the risks associated with slips and falls in high traffic bathrooms such as these, safety was a key requirement. Merrylands RSL’s timed flow taps and paper towel dispensers are located next to the basins to limit water spillage and also to improve hygiene. And custom-made mirrors combined with professional lighting design create a functional and stylish environment.

Energy and water saving features were also included in the bathroom facility with high end features built into the sinks, urinals and cubicles.

It's all in the details


The judging panel was impressed with the level of patron input into the design of the Merrylands winning bathroom, making sure that the bathrooms were not only stylish but serviceable.

“The female cubicles, in particular, provide ample space where our customers can hang their coat and bag, put their phone down and comfortably use the area,” says Steve Brady, Facilities Manager Merrylands RSL. “The location and design of this space mean it’s dry and feels clean when you enter.”

“We are delighted to be announced the 2018 winners,” says Steve. “A huge amount of time and effort went into this project in terms of presentation, functionality, safety and efficiency. We are proud to have delivered an award-winning world-class facility.”
