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.
For example, nested configurations work best in same-handed rooms, allowing designers to achieve desirable sight lines, family zones, and views outside while reducing plumbing costs thanks to that shared wall, says Paul Macheske, associate principal and director of healthcare design at Hunton Brady (Orlando).
Some products offer intrinsic antimicrobial materials such as copper alloy and titanium dioxide, though their effectiveness is still being evaluated, Bowman says. And even how chosen products are installed might make a difference, too. For example, Bowman recommends minimal grout joints between tiles or seamless, groutless bathroom flooring—a poured resinous product—for better infection control.
