When I was on the tools and getting the best prices for fixtures for contracts we had won, Reece wasn’t the only place I would contact to get the best price or order in the obscure fixtures that were exclusive to certain bathroom stores.
There were 5 main bathroom stores that I did pick-ups from in Brisbane. These stores also are five of the best plumbing showrooms in Brisbane. (in my opinion)
If you want to broaden your bathroomware horizon to see other brands available, here are my other showroom recommendations.
25 Montpelier Rd Bowen Hills, QLD, 4006
Phone (07) 3257 3230
Even though every Reece Showroom around Brisbane has something unique to offer a customer, the Bowen Hills stores offers the most extensive range in Brisbane. Heading out to Reece at Bowen Hills means you can also call out to the next showroom which is just down the road.

Tradelink offers a great range of plumbing fixtures and tapware and offers some of the same brands as Reece. What sets the two stores apart is there are brands that will only be exclusively ordered through the chains. Tradelink at Bowen Hills was my go-to store if I needed to get gear into the city or on the way to the north side of Brisbane. If I was south of the river, I would head to Reece West End or Reece Salisbury/Coopers Plains.
Suite 9 121 Newmarket Road, Windsor, 4030

For the bizarre and obscure European taps and fixtures, I would head to Christiaan’s. They offer a showroom showcasing the best designer and high brand taps and fixtures. Great to look at, but not fabulous to install and expensive to maintain (just my opinion). It was always fun to visit the showroom to see some amazing fixtures that are innovative and stylish.
72-78 McLachlan St, Fortitude Valley, QLD 4006
Phone (07) 3251 4333
I have fond memories of fitting 2 toilet suites, 2 basins and tapware in the back of my Toyota Yaris before my dad upgraded my car to a ute. The Rogerseller warehouse was near my home and dad would always get lost heading there, so it was my job to pick up our orders. The warehouse is no longer near my house as pickups are now made from the showroom in Fortitude Valley.
Rogerseller offers modern, simplistic yet innovative design in plumbing fixtures and taps. The showroom is modern and well set out. If I ever had an exclusive plumbing event, I’d hold it in this showroom. Rogerseller was the first brand to introduce black toilet paper to me, way before The Block did. It’s definitely a showroom to check out when you’re in the city.
214 Days Road, Grange, QLD, 4051
Phone (07) 3356 8466
I have childhood memories of visiting this showroom on the Grange and I made a few pick-ups from this store. Farleys have over 50 years experience in bathroom products. They offer a range of products from leading suppliers and have the capacity (at times) to match prices and order in some of the more difficultly sourced bathroom products that consultants would specify. Farleys is on the Grange and they also have a showroom at Springwood on the south side of Brisbane. I’ve never been to the Springwood showroom so I’m not sure if it’s better than the Grange, but it’s still an alternative if you don’t want to travel to the north side of Brisbane.
These are my top five plumbing showrooms in Brisbane. If you live outside of Brisbane, Reece and Tradelink will most likely have a showroom near you – they may not have all their products displayed, but sometimes this can be a good thing when making a decision on what you like. Alternatively you can do your research online, but sometimes it’s a good to see the taps and fixtures installed in person to ensure they are the right look and feel you are after.
