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.
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.
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.
