By On Oct 17, 2018 Bathroom Design
With tubs giving way to walk-in showers in terms of popularity, Don Harrier, principal at HKS, suggested taking advantage of the extra space to include a bigger vanity or to make the shower a statement piece with glass partitions and a great rain shower head.
A double sink vanity with a mirror running the entire length certainly serves its purpose, but it can get boring after a while. To try instead: two separate vanities each with its own framed mirror, wall sconce for lighting and storage underneath. This design will add more interest and visual appeal, creating a rhythmic contrast between the wall color and the architecture of the vanity.
Finally, when considering where to locate the bathroom in relation to the patient bed—either on the footwall or headwall—a footwall placement frees up the headwall for medical equipment and the patient can better enjoy views to the outdoors with a path to the bathroom that’s visually clear. On the other hand, when the bathroom is placed at the headwall, patients have a shorter path of travel, which reduces the risk of falls.
