,

When it’s time to renovate your facility’s restrooms, why not improve the overall experience for the occupants? Staying on top of trends, especially when it comes to restroom design, is important because it adds an extra element to your facility and your restrooms. There are several ways that you can update your bathroom to include some of the new 2018 restroom design trends to really stand out.

Here’s a few ways that you can update the bathroom in your facility to improve the aesthetics and the experience.

Choosing a Theme

When you think of commercial bathrooms, you probably don’t remember the décor or the style. However, commercial restrooms today are broadening the horizon and utilizing fun, unique designs and themes to accentuate the designated space for the sinks and toilets. There are plenty of themes that you can utilize, whether it’s modern, retro, artsy, or even industrial. There are also several ways that you can achieve these themes through colors, spacing, exposed plumbing, and even mirror size and placement.

Open Up Your Restroom

The open space concept isn’t anything new, but lately it’s been one of the most sought after designs with homes, businesses, and even restrooms. While you may feel that you have limited space in your restroom to achieve the open space look, you can utilize certain materials to make your restroom seem larger and more spacious. You can choose brighter lights, lighter-colored flooring, and leave more open space under the sink or vanity to make the space seem roomier.

Pick the Best Materials

When you’re embarking on a remodel of your facility’s restroom, it’s a chance to do things over. That’s why you should use the best materials around to not only provide an inviting appearance, but also last the years. HDPE plastic has become increasingly popular as toilet partitions. Not only is this solid plastic durable, impact resistant, non-absorbent to graffiti and bacteria, but it’s also 100% sustainable. It will last for years because it requires very little maintenance, so you can look forward to the time and costs that you’ll save over time.

Improve the Privacy

Privacy is a factor that everyone appreciates when it comes to going to the restroom. However, one of the most common complaints that occupants have is the exposed feet, door gaps, and open tops that most toilet partitions have, so why not change the set-up altogether by going with something new? Aria Partitions™ offer an enclosed stall that provides ample privacy by eliminating sight lines and closing off the partitions to give occupants complete privacy and comfort.

Clear the Air with Plants

Putting plants in your facility’s restroom can add more than just greenery. While the contrast of plants in a restroom environment can be appealing, plants can actually help improve the air quality. They can help purify the air in your restroom, and indoor plants have been proven to create a relaxing feeling, which will improve the restroom experience for the occupants in your facility.

Giving your facility’s restroom a makeover has a few notable advantages. Not only can you make it more visually appealing, but it’s your chance to utilize some reliable and sustainable materials to keep your restroom in great condition.
