The greatest challenge homeowners face in selecting a finish is trying to achieve visual appeal, durability and maintenance, all in a single tile or finish. While this is possible, its important to select a material that will not blow your budget. An excellent design tip while selecting tile is Keep it Classic, Accent with Popular. Often finishes are hot for a year or two and then fade as newer and more with-it finishes enter the market. Do not get carried away by a product that is trendy. Classic finishes, like wainscoting, are a hit in powder rooms. Wallpapers are making a comeback and are reasonable priced alternative finishes if you are willing to install them yourself.
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.
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.
