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.
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.
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.
