Office Bathrooms Can Be One of the Most Important Pieces of Office Design

Bathrooms are essential, but often neglected, areas of many commercial buildings. Indeed, office restrooms play an important role in overall office design. Presenting a stellar office bathroom design is a great way for business leaders to show they care about their employees, future talent, and visiting clients. Someone will judge your entire company based on the state of your company restrooms because it sends a message about the level of detail that you put into your organization.
Of course, renovating, expanding, or building a new bathroom from scratch is much easier said than done. There are dozens of different factors to consider–– from planning a construction schedule, to setting a budget, to more specific decisions like installing touchless fixtures or choosing nice looking finishes. Often customers who renovate their office restrooms hesitate to spend a little extra (about 10% more) on nicer finishes (tile/faucets/vanities/stalls/etc) because a restroom renovation can be fairly involved and costly in the first place. Keep in mind that businesses only tend to renovate their restrooms about once every 15-20 years. The extra 10% might seem like a lot now, but it makes such a big difference and it will be there for so many years, that we believe it’s 100% worth it to save up a little extra to make your bathrooms really stand out.
A few other tips & considerations for office restroom design:
- Touchless fixtures are more important than ever because of increased awareness for hygiene. Not only that, but they reduce waste and cost of disposables.
- How private do you want your toilet partitions to be?
- Do you need an area for a mother’s room in or near your women’s restroom? Or maybe just a changing area?
- Do you want to offer an area to sit?
- Lighting can make a big difference in a restroom. Try to make it a little bit nicer than a typical grid ceiling. Warmer lighting makes it more comfortable.
- Some companies are offering showers – especially manufacturing organizations where shop workers tend to get dirty and sweaty during the day.
- In a more industrial application, try to cover up the CMU block – it makes the bathroom look less institutional.
