By On Oct 15, 2018 Bathroom Design
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.
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.
A double sink vanity with a mirror running the entire length certainly serves its purpose, but it can get boring after a while. To try instead: two separate vanities each with its own framed mirror, wall sconce for lighting and storage underneath. This design will add more interest and visual appeal, creating a rhythmic contrast between the wall color and the architecture of the vanity.
