New Trends in Commercial Restroom Design

It’s always important to be aware of new trends in commercial restroom design. You want to make sure that your designs can reflect new trends and adapt to the different requests that you’ll receive from those who own the facility.

Commercial restrooms are always changing. They have the potential to be unique and carry the theme of the rest of the facility throughout.

Learn more about some of the current and newest trends in commercial restroom design to make sure that your restroom designs are always up-to-date and pleasing.

Hands-free appliances: People are becoming more and more conscious of the amount of germs and bacteria that exist in public, so they’re constantly avoiding touching products. Incorporating hands-free appliances that are powered by motion sensors rather than levers or knobs will allow people to wash their hands without having to touch surfaces that others have touched.

Automated soap dispensers, faucets, and towel dispensers are more user friendly and one of the current trends in commercial restroom design. They also reduce the amount of products that could end up on the floor or countertops.

Aesthetically pleasing surfaces: An attractive, sophisticated countertop or vanity can make all the difference when it comes to the appearance of a commercial restroom. Many facilities opt for slightly more expensive materials for their counters in order to create this quality look in the bathroom.

Higher quality materials are often nonporous, such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, which means they’ll stay cleaner and germ-free longer. This type of material may be slightly more expensive at the initial purchase, but the costs you’ll save in maintenance over the years make it less expensive in the long run.

Sustainable products: More and more companies are considering the carbon footprint they’re leaving and choosing sustainable products that are less harmful to the environment and better for the people in the facility. Some products give off emissions that reduce the quality of the air and can end up diminishing health.

HDPE plastic is made from recycled material and improves the air quality. It resists mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria that can contribute to poor air quality. And because HDPE plastic is one solid color throughout, it never requires paint, so VOC emissions are avoided.

Scranton Products offers materials that will be aesthetically pleasing, durable, and sustainable in your facility’s bathroom. Choose from HDPE plastic bathroom partitions and vanities to achieve a high-class, sophisticated look that’s also friendly to the environment and improves the quality of the air.
