Often times the design of bathrooms are not given much
consideration. Many people focus on the décor of the bathroom,
while neglecting the functional design. Of course, depending
the type of bathroom you're building, you will need to keep
different factors in mind. This article will consider the
design factors for three different types of bathrooms.
The design and functionality of master bathrooms vary widely.
Some are relatively basic, while others have a whirlpool or
other features. Some are even divided into multiple rooms! You
just have to decide what features you want yours to have!
When designing commercial bathrooms, two major factors to
consider are privacy and sanitation. Privacy is usually solved
one of two ways – for single stall restrooms, a lock on the
door; for multi stall restrooms, locks on the stall doors.
way it's easy to tell which stalls are in use.
As far as sanitation is concerned, one feature that will help
lot is tile floors and walls, and a drain in the floor. That
way, you can just bleach and hose down the entire bathroom on
regular basis. Any feature that will make sanitation easier or
simpler should be given consideration.
Of course, durability should be a given in commercial
bathrooms. People will treat fixtures roughly, so they should
be built to withstand the abuse.
If you're designing a bathroom for your kids, the main factors
you probably want to consider are safety and durability.
With safety in mind, you should consider to as much as
use non slip surfaces. Also, kids WILL spill water in the
bathroom, so try to design the bathroom in such a way that
spilled water will not cause damage or a safety hazard.
Durability is pretty obvious, for the most part – minimize
glass and other delicate decorations and fixtures.
