I’m here in Los Angeles at Waterworks, probably the most luxurious bathroom and kitchen showroom of all time and a personal favorite of mine. I’m excited to show you all the new finishes along with a new line by Waterworks that is actually competitively priced so you too can afford to trim your bathrooms and kitchens with the best items out there.
The showroom is in West Hollywood and I’m here to meet up with a client but before I did that, I thought I’d give you guys a tour of this jewel of a showroom.
As you can see, everything is elevated in taste and style. They have the most beautiful show kitchens, bathtubs, and lighting and plumbing fixtures. You can luxuriate in your bath and do business at the same time. When my client walked in she said the showroom was mind-blowing and jaw-dropping. Which is exactly how I feel.
Waterworks make some of the best cabinetry on the market and their inlaid metal details are unparalleled. You can find wonderful details including seeing these cabinets paired with butcher block and marble counters.
The drawer details are also great as you can see in this burgundy bar where the black splash is made of glass, giving the bar an old world vibe. The hardware is all brass and beautifully finished. One of the things I love is this double sink and the faucet in this kitchen with pots hanging from above. Both allow you to have two people working in the kitchen at the same time while keeping the design look very chic. I especially love the spray handle in the middle of this polished nickel double spout faucet. What fun!
As you guys know, I love natural wood cabinets and this kitchen with its linear brass hardware and retro knobs looks great. I love the subway tiles, I love these thick, chunky faucets, not to mention details like these gorgeous spouts. This cast iron bathtub has a solid brass cup filler that lets you take a long hot bath. Just what we all need once in a while.
The shower is great too with its solid brass fixtures and unique arched shower heads. They seem to come from a different era.
Just a note: Waterworks also has an array of bath accessories from towels to baskets to hampers and those can be picked up in the showroom. Everything else has to be ordered.
Just look at this gorgeous combination of brass fixtures against a terrazzo-tiled shower wall. Waterworks has lots of pretty tile that you can mix with brass so your shower can look like this!
I ran into this oval copper bathtub reminiscent of the high, sloping French tubs of the 19th century. It costs nearly $63,000, but don’t fret!
Here’s a collection of more affordable fixtures for common bathrooms. The primary bathroom fixtures are more expensive, of course. I love that the kitchen hardware comes in a variety of colors and in different finishes from lacquered to un-lacquered, matte to nickel. They can coordinate with your bathroom as it is and make it feel fresh and new.
Waterworks’ lighting fixtures are unique and original. They look very expensive and yes, they are expensive but they’re a one-time splurge for, perhaps, a primary bathroom. I particularly like this Art Deco light with its frosted glass, as well as the wall-mounted double sconce with fluted glass shades.
I hope you enjoyed the tour and that it gave you some inspiration for your own homes.
