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.
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.
The Ironworks Hotel Indianapolis is a new-build property that was designed with a 19th-century vibe. For the guest bathrooms, Sue Griffin, director of interior design at Hendricks Commercial Properties, which owns the property, wanted a spa-like experience with rain shower heads. To have a really a good rain shower head, you have to have good water pressure, she said. And we were fortunate with the new-build that we could make sure we had that ahead of time.
