Interior design for a seriously glamorous toilet

By | Architectural / Interior Design | No Comments

We don’t get to design that many toilets but the brief for this one was hard to resist. Asked to create a toilet that would make an impression, the toilet in question is part of a larger residential extension and conversion in Leicestershire for a long-standing client of ours (more on the rest of the scheme to come).

With high gloss black ‘brick’ tiles, a traditional toilet and cistern in black from Imperial Bathrooms, high gloss black cantilevered vanity unit, a beautiful polished brass and brushed stainless bowl from William Holland, wall mounted brushed stainless mixer tap, bright brass cornicing framing a back-lit stretched ceiling, this really is the most elaborate toilet we’ve ever designed. The flooring, shown as solid wood parquet, will in fact be Yorkstone flags.

Antique bronze mirrors above the tiles help to increase the sense of space, whilst randomly placed framed pictures in a variety of styles provides a visual counter-point set against a flat black wall.

This is glamour and style that’s also a little bit tongue-in-cheek, making a bold statement whilst not taking itself too seriously!
