One of the best ways to find inspiration for your own bathroom is to seek out what’s being done elsewhere, don’t you think? As true London lovers at Drummonds, we’re always keen to discover everything this buzzing city has to offer, especially in terms of bathrooms. We’ve compiled, just for you, a list of the bathrooms we find the most inspiring.
Where: 9 Conduit Street, Mayfair, W1S 2XG
Why: If you haven’t been to Sketch yet, we’d highly recommend you do. We have a soft spot for the unisex bathrooms: the pristine white cubicle egg pods lend to the space a futuristic feel, while the ceiling calls for disco vibes with its rainbow tiles mimicking eighties dance floors. If you want to be out of your comfort zone, this is the place.
2. The Ned
Where: 27 Poultry, The City, EC2R 8AJ
Why: Full of vintage charm and glamour, The Ned’s powder room sends us back to 1920s New York with its black-and-white checkered floors and plush velvet sofa. It’s the perfect place to powder your nose and have a relaxed moment with your friends. And guess what? The taps and basins are ours!
Where: 26 Albemarle St, Mayfair, London W1S 4HY
Why: What really seduced us at Isabel was the fact that each loo was designed with its own unique De Gournay hand-painted wallpaper, offering an individualised bathroom experience. We suggest that you freshen up more than once during your dinner to admire the beauty of each room!
4. Restaurant Ours
Where: 264 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, SW3 2AS
Why: You’ll feel like you’re in Beverly Hills when you enter the bathrooms of Restaurant Ours. We love it all: the jungle vibes of the palm tree covering wall-to-ceiling, baby pink tiles and neon signs!
Where: 21-22 Warwick Street, Soho, W1B 5NE
Why: Another design haven is found at Nopi. The whole space is covered with a maze of mirrors, peppered with marble and gold finishes, to reflect the room infinitely. There are even signs to direct you back to the restaurant as it can get confusing!
