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.
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.
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.
