Commercial bathroom design has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many industries to rethink how they design public spaces to increase cleanliness without losing functionality. Bathrooms, in general, have always been notorious for being germ centers, but now the spotlight is on them more than ever. With an increased focus on health, commercial bathrooms are being reimagined to better suit consumer’s wants and needs.
Here are some of the latest trends in commercial bathroom design.
As we continue to maintain our distance, the spacing of stalls, doors, and sinks is becoming wider. When spacing is not an option, additional barriers between handwashing stations and utilizing toilet partitions that reduce the amount of open space are favorable alternatives.
Overall, consumers are demanding more privacy in commercial bathrooms. They do not like toilet partitions that have gaps and allow people to see into the stall. Toilet partition manufactures have embraced this change and are providing new options for no-site partitions.
With coming into contact with germs at the forefront of everyone’s minds, minimizing the number of contact surfaces is becoming the standard for commercial bathroom design. Commercial bathrooms now commonly include touchless features such as automatic doors, hands-free soap and towel dispensers, and self-flushing toilets. Touchless hand sanitizer dispensers are also being used outside of bathrooms to increase cleanliness upon entering and exiting the space.
Whether it’s their shopping bags, purse, or mobile device, consumers want simple, sanitary ways to store their belongings when using a commercial bathroom.
Modern, Sleek Aesthetic
In addition to a clean and functional space, consumers want public restrooms to be modern in design, with quality finishes and products. Similarly, owners want their bathrooms to be an extension of their spaces’ aesthetic that provides their consumers with an inviting space.
