Claridges unveils Revised Wet Room Design in Suites

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 2 September 2008

Londons Claridges Hotel has unveiled a collection of eight newly designed Claridges Suites. Two of the new suites feature an innovative wet room design which aims to maximise the space available without compromising on style. The wet rooms are luxuriously finished with polished chrome fittings, each with Art Deco detailing, the highest quality handpicked slabs of marble sourced from Antolinis in Verona, Italy, and hand-etched Art Deco shower doors.

British designer, David Linley said, "Bathrooms are now seen to be as important as the bedroom itself. They are a place for guests to escape and relax and therefore must be indulgent, extravagant and luxurious."

Each bright and spacious bathroom includes a large double basin above a floating marble shelf and a full size bath and double shower. One suite in particular boasts the classic Claridges head and shoulder shower for ladies not wishing to wet their hair.

The introduction of modern technology into the bathrooms is seamless with flat screen televisions embedded into the glistening marble wall at the foot of each bath, under floor heating and steam-resistant heated mirrors.

Each suite has its own distinct colour palette and fabric selection, as well as unique works of art and wooden flooring throughout the bedroom and sitting room. Original Art Deco features, such as glass, or silver fireplaces, clocks or wall lights, have been restored and in certain places have become the focal point of the suite. These features have been matched by pieces specifically designed to complement them in style, texture and feel.

The Art Deco bedrooms retain their original headboards and dressing tables, and feature the Claridges Tub Chairs, designed exclusively for the hotel, to sit alongside Deco inspired mirrors and prints.
