Studies have shown that more patient falls occur when patients are trying to access the bathrooms, reports Bowman. Our interior design team always locates patient bathrooms at the headwall due to the shorter travel distance and accessibility to handrails.
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.
As an example, Church-Smith cited the Best Western Central Hotel in Harrisburg, Pa., which had fans already installed in the guest bathrooms, but faced guest complaints about the noise from the system. Church-Smith recommended an updated two-for-one unit that combined a recessed LED with a fan that brings humidity up through the same hole that the light is in. It eliminates [the need for] another hole in the ceiling, he said of the new units.
