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.
On the other hand, Rick Abbott, principal of Hord Coplan Macht (Baltimore), says that the vestibule created through an inboard design can create a pinch point for maneuvering the bed in and out of the room. Additionally, all the plumbing risers are now located along the corridor, so in the future, it becomes harder to renovate around these risers, he says.
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.
