Installing a fan in the bathroom helps provide consistent ventilation throughout the hotel and the rooms, he said, and helps extend the periods between deep cleanings and repaintings by lowering the humidity in the space. A major issue that hotels face is indoor air quality and mold and mildew, he said. People are in and out of the room, the ventilation runs for a minimum amount of time and sometimes works at a very, very low rate. And for the most part, the ventilation does not even address moisture events—meaning showers.
That leads to the next key design decision: a same-handed or mirrored patient room configuration. Same-handed arrangements orient all rooms and their contents in the same direction, whereas mirrored rooms are designed back-to-back, providing plumbing efficiencies with a shared wall between bathrooms.
Standard efficiently designed bathrooms have a tub, double vanity or pedestal sink, and toilet lined up against one wall, known as the wet wall. If this layout is getting on your nerves and your standard sized bathtub has just enough space to wet your elbows when you shower, then consider removing the tub and installing a walk-in shower with a frameless glass enclosure. Include niches for bath accessories. Additional storage can be installed at a certain height on the wall, making space for foot traffic. This arrangement will create a spacious feel as it makes the vision flow beyond the tub and the shower curtains that were obstructing the line of sight.
