By visiting www.bestrestroom.com/canada, the public can view photos of the five finalists and vote for their favourite until August 16th.

“With finalists from Vancouver to Quebec City, votes are coming in from across the country and this last week of voting will determine who will take home the title of Canada’s Best Restroom,” said Candice Raynsford, Marketing Manager, Cintas Canada Ltd. “We’ve seen a lot of excitement around every finalist and we can’t wait to crown a winner this fall.”
As a reminder, the 2019 finalists for the Cintas Canada’s Best Restroom® contest include:
Bauhaus Restaurant – Vancouver, British Columbia
Bauhaus Restaurant was inspired by the early 20th-century design movement "Bauhaus" which was famous for its unique approach to architecture and design, where every form had a function. The restaurant’s Berlin street art-inspired washrooms were commissioned by Olliemoonsta, an art duo from Spain with a background in Fine Arts and Graphic Design. The washrooms feature quotes from Walter Gropius, the 'Bauhaus' School founder and original graphic designs and graffiti in celebration of the Bauhaus design movement.
Beaverhill Shell – Lac la Biche, Alberta
The washrooms at Beaverhill Shell were designed with the comforts of its customers in mind. Unlike conventional rest-stops, they feature luxurious details throughout. Clean lines like herringbone-patterned wall and floor tile, paired with sleek wall sconces, shining chandeliers and large, decorative mirrors create a modern yet rustic look. Meanwhile, simple details like relaxing artwork and warm, wooden stall doors make the washrooms stand out. The Beaverhill Shell washrooms create a new rest-stop experience and raise the standard of gas station washrooms.
Cluny Bistro – Toronto, Ontario
Located in Toronto’s historic Distillery District, within the heritage site of the Gooderham Building, Cluny Bistro’s washrooms were designed by Studio Munge. Solid oak partition walls and beautiful cement tile floors with white marble counters create a space worthy of its guests. The washrooms feature warm woods, delicate gold fixtures and frosted glass. Meanwhile, the tiled floor is decorated in shades of yellow, orange and duck-egg blue.
Cosmos Café – Quebec City, Quebec
With its eclectic décor and modern style, the Cosmos Café carries an atmosphere worth experiencing. The artistic elements found throughout the café flow into the washrooms where you’ll find sinks made of rock with waterfall faucets and touchless amenities. The walls are slate tile and feature unique one-way mirrored fish tanks.
Laurence and Chico Café – Vancouver, British Columbia
The Laurence and Chico Café was designed by Laurence Li and Chico Wang, complete with whimsical wallpapers, tiles and furnishings replicating their signature prints. You can Instagram every corner of the café, including the washrooms, which offer customers an escape from reality. One of the washrooms is rubber ducky themed where if you look up, you’ll see the ceiling adorned with them. Another is a floral-themed washroom featuring paper mâché flowers.
The five finalists were selected based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. The winner will be honoured with a place in the Canada’s Best Restroom Hall of Fame and $2,500 in facility services from Cintas to help keep their washrooms Ready for the Workday®.
