I like to write about public baths, though it is often difficult to find ones worthy of publication for The Perfect Bath Blog. The ladies room in the Waterworks Los Angeles showroom is an exception. It conforms to California code for handicap access while using product found in our assortment. The traditional Maritime honed Carrara washstand is a simple interpretation of a 1920′s wall hung lavatory, available in custom sizes.
The Ice Water blue wall tile has a translucent crackle glaze. Creating a wall panel with a ceramic rail and dot liner frames the washstand and adds interest to the space. A modern interpretation of a basket weave inspired floor in large scale in honed Nero and Carrara adds a dynamic scale to the room. Of course, it is the personal touches that create a memorable space either public or private. We added a vintage mirror and decorative light as accents.
This is a really beautiful, confident public restroom with a place to put a handbag or brief case, fragrant soap and thoughtful consideration for client comfort.
