Caring for Your Washrooms Beyond Inspections

Whether you’re a restaurant, university or healthcare facility, it’s about more than the health inspector when you plan your washroom renovation.

In restaurants, it’s impossible to NOT connect the quality and cleanliness of a washroom with that of the kitchen. Trips to the loo are a key part of the overall hospitality experience and your attention to detail should reflect that.

Restrooms are also the perfect place to hammer home your design vision. Whether it’s funky lighting or an inspired vanity, there are tons of clever ways to make your restroom a signature part of your business. Many Yelp and word of mouth reviews include a comment on the washrooms – for better or worse.

In sports and healthcare facilities, carefully designing restrooms to be as clean and sanitary as possible is essential. The health and safety of your clients depends on it. Shifting demographics have also led to a greater need for family change rooms rather than single-gender ones. Do your clients a service and design appropriately.

The same goes for planning and building for people with disabilities – if you want to be a leader in your field when it comes to inclusive design, the washrooms are a great place to start.

Furthermore, many government buildings, restaurants and shops are eliminating gendered washrooms entirely or at least partially, making transgender-friendly single washrooms the standard. As gender-inclusive washrooms become the norm, it’s essential to stay current and design with care.
