The bathroom is a place of relaxation that can be a retreat from the frequently hectic world outside. With this in mind, finding ways to bring the more beautiful aspects of the natural world into your bathroom can aid your relaxation and bathroom experience.
China basins are so clean, white and smooth it can be easy to forget they are formed from natural clay. All Drummonds’ basins, toilet pans and cisterns are formed from English clay, mixed in small batches.
A walk in the woods can be one of nature’s most theraputic experiences, and wood can easily be incorporated into your bathroom design.
Floors, panelling and cabinetry are all opportunities to feature the warmth of wood, or smaller accessories can add a shade without overwhelming a space. A wooden toilet seat is a deft way of adding wood into a bathroom. Choose oak for a chunky grain, mahogany for a finer grain or walnut for a luxurious, dark aesthetic.
There are other ways of creating a natural bathroom look without giving your bathroom a complete re-design! A simple natural sponge (from a sustainable source) can cast your mind away to the sea, or get creative with some bleached driftwood or seashells for some rustic seaside charm.
As well as using natural materials, it is possible to choose classic designs with echoes of the natural world around us. Barra basin and bath spouts have a Swan shaped neck, giving your bathroom the curved, graceful and grandeur of the beautiful bird the shape is influenced by.
The figure of the lion has been used in design for centuries to symbolise the eternal presence and power of nature. Used in sculptures or for door knockers or centuries, it also lends itself very well to a spout, which is why Drummonds’ Lion’s Head Bath filler was designed to fill your tub with hot steamy water, allowing you to relax under the guard of one of nature’s most majestic and regal creatures.
