By On Sep 29, 2018 Bathroom Design
On the surface, hotel bathrooms are fairly standard. A shower, a sink, a toilet and some nice, fluffy towels and the space is ready to go, right? But not so fast—whether the project is a new build, a renovation or an adaptive reuse, designers often must overcome unanticipated challenges when creating bath areas for guestrooms. Not only must the space meet the latest guest demands and brand standards, but a wide range of logistics can affect the overall look of the room.
After assessing the best placement for the toilet room, Saba says designers should turn their attention toward creating a clear, easy, and maneuverable course of travel from the bed to the bathroom. In fact, Saba says that about one-third of NBBJs clients opt to install a lift from the bed to the bathroom.
Ventilation may not be top-of-mind when it comes to designing a hotel bathroom, but it should certainly be a point of consideration. Many hotels use a central stack design to ventilate their hotel rooms, said Gary Church-Smith, an indoor air-quality specialist with Panasonic Eco Solutions. They put a fan on the roof, and as result of that, the upper floors get better ventilation than the lower floors do because the lower floors are so far away from the fan. The farther a room is from that rooftop fan, he said, the less effective the fan is for ventilating that room.
