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.
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.
In coming years, Scelsi expects connected technology to change the way hotels operate, including the bathrooms. You could have your faucets hooked together, tied into a buildings management system where you can give a signal to the major system that says faucet number three in the third-floor restroom is continually running, so there might be a leak you need to check out.
