8 Ways to Improve Your Commercial Bathroom’s Experience

,

Even though the bathroom in your facility is visited every day by numerous occupants, do you ever ask them how their experience was? This probably isn’t the right approach to assess the quality of your commercial bathroom or how the occupants gauge it. However, in order to improve the bathroom experience in your facility, you’ll want to focus on the areas that actually need the improvement. Commercial bathrooms have evolved over the years, and are now becoming an alluring and relaxing component to your facility. Here’s eight different ways you can improve the commercial bathroom experience for your occupants.

  1. Consider Renovating Your Bathroom.

You may keep up on industry trends, but you’ll have to remodel your restroom if you want to stay ahead of the times. Some facilities offer a stylish and comforting restroom by using the right materials and some design implementations that can transform a normal bathroom into relaxing getaway. To truly improve the experience, you may want to consider starting from the ground up.

  1. Stay Up on Industry Trends.

Some modern offices and facilities encompass artistic design into their buildings. Whether it’s taking on the open space concepts, or simply using more stylish accessories, facilities are changing drastically, so it’s always important to learn about the latest trends. This can even translate to your restroom. Take a look at a few to get a better idea of how you can transform your bathroom that can enhance the experience.

  1. Amplify the Space in Your Restroom.

Did you know that you can make your restroom appear more spacious without having to knock down any walls? By using the components and materials creatively, you can get a lot out of the confined space. You can get this done in a few different ways, one of which is by using larger mirrors behind your vanities, which makes the restroom seem more spacious. Another way is by leaving open space under your sinks. Most restroom sinks have their pipes and components covered, but if you leave this space open and your vanities slim, it can add space to your facility’s restroom.

  1. Use Soft Colors & Lighting.

Lighting can have a huge effect on the restroom experience. Do away with the bright fluorescent lights, and go for something softer and more energy-efficient. You can even complement the light with softer and neutral colors. Using neutral colors will not only help make your restroom soft on the eyes, but it can also reduce the sight of dirt or stains that would be very noticeable on a brightly colored wall.

  1. Think Long-Term with Your Partitions.

When it comes to choosing your toilet partitions, you’ll want something that’s visually appealing, but will also last for a long time. Materials like HDPE plastic have been utilized in restrooms across the country, and has yielded positive results. It’s a solid plastic that’s durable, impact resistant, non-absorbent, and best of all—sustainable. It’s made from recycled material and can easily be recycled, but they’re guaranteed for 25 years, so you won’t have to worry about recycling or replacing them anytime soon.

  1. Improve Occupant Privacy.

A common complaint that occupants have about the restroom at their job is that it’s not as private as they’d like it to be. There can be major gaps under the stall, and even the door leaves a considerable space that can make for an uncomfortable experience. HDPE partitions can be configured using hidden hardware and clasps to eliminate sightlines, which provide a private and secure experience for the occupants.

  1. Invest in Automated Fixtures & Features.

It may seem like a major investment, but utilizing automated fixtures like sinks, soap dispensers, and even motion-sensing lights can save you costs. The soap dispensers will provide the precise amount for each occupant, which will reduce waste. The motion-sensing lights will help reduce your energy costs significantly. It also saves occupants from touching any components in your restroom.

  1. Combat Mold & Mildew Ahead of Time.

Mold is always a threat to reduce the quality of the commercial bathroom experience. The constant moisture and humidity in the restroom are the perfect environment for mold to grow and spread. When it finds its way in different components, like your vanities and partitions, getting rid of it can be very tricky. However, utilizing HDPE plastic partitions and vanities can help combat mold because these materials won’t absorb any moisture and mold won’t sprout inside the plastic. By utilizing a few of these tips, you can certainly improve the occupant experience with your facility’s restrooms. Want to learn more to help you get started?
