Bathroom Galore – For Your Dream Designer Bathroom

Designer Bathroom Specialists

We all know that Bathroom Galore is the place to go for your dream designer bathroom in Johannesburg, but one must wonder where some of the world’s most outrageous and expensive bathrooms have come from. Let’s take a look at some of the world’s most extravagant and expensive bathrooms:

• Our top pick is that of the 2001 Guinness World Record’s most expensive bathroom ever designed and built winner. This bathroom belongs to Lam Sai-wing, a Hong Kong jeweller who had a taste for extravagance. Where was it built? It was built inside his store! The total cost of the bathroom added up to $3.5 million and consists of gold and precious jewels. 24 carat gold was used to create the toilet bowl, wash basin, toilet paper holder, toilet brush, mirror frames, wall tiles and doors. The floor is even embedded with gold bars, while the ceiling is decorated with ruby, sapphire, emerald and amber stones.

• Next up is the most expensive bathroom in Dubai. You might have guessed it, it’s under the sea. You can find this bathroom on the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island, in the Poseidon Suite at the undersea resort. The bathroom features a glass window into the sea where you can watch the fish swim by. For around £15,775 per night, you can enjoy this bathroom, a personal butler and even have someone readily available to scrub your back while you’re in the bath!

• If you’re interested in Formula One, then you will undoubtedly have heard of the Ecclestone family. They’re next on our list! Tamara Ecclestone certainly raised some eyebrows when she ordered a bathtub carved from a solid crystal rock. The crystal was acquired from the Amazon and only 3 such bathtubs have ever been manufactured. The cost of retrieving the crystal rock and manufacturing it into a bathtub is said (but not confirmed), to be around 1 million pounds.
