The Dos and Don’ts of Designing Commercial Toilets

The design and construction quality of commercial restrooms play an important role in deciding the overall experience of your visitors. Though Greenlam Sturdo offers a wide range of high-quality restroom accessories including restroom cubicles and locker systems to help you manifest a functional and aesthetically pleasing restroom design; there is a possibility that some design elements may be implemented incorrectly. To help avoid the pitfalls, we present some Dos and Don’ts of designing a commercial toilet. Read on.


Ambient Lighting

When visiting a restroom, most people check themselves in the mirror and take some time to groom themselves. Poor lighting can hinder the purpose and leave a bad impression on your visitors. Dim lighting can also be an inconvenience to senior citizens and people with blurred vision. If there’s no direct access to sunlight, make sure there’s enough artificial lighting in the restroom, by including task lighting and down lighting.

Modesty Boards

Modesty boards are a smart way to conceal the plumbing below the sinks and enhance the aesthetics of commercial restrooms. Modesty boards should also be fitted between urinals to ensure privacy. The surface of the modesty boards should be resistant to water damage as there’s a high possibility of water splashes. Laminate urinal partitions and modesty boards from Greenlam Sturdo are engineered to endure heavy usage in commercial restrooms.

Functional Features

All the functional features must carefully be incorporated to ensure maximum convenience for visitors. Make sure the flush button, toilet paper dispenser, and the litter bins are placed within a hand’s reach of the water closet. There should be a soap dispenser for every washbasin, ensuring convenience. The hand dryer should be on the way towards the exit to save time.


Exposed Pipework

Make sure you include vanity boards for pipes beneath the sink and do not leave any exposed pipework in other parts of the restroom, as they can not only affect the aesthetics and feel of the restroom but are also prone to damage when not concealed.

Glossy Flooring

Glossy flooring might be a perfect choice for reception areas, lobbies, and other parts of your facility, but it definitely does not fit the bill when it comes to commercial restrooms. As such flooring is usually slippery, it is advisable to go for an alternative that offers a better grip.

Wrap Up

A great commercial restroom design is incomplete without top-quality restroom material, right from the restroom cubicles and locker systems to other restroom accessories. Greenlam Sturdo offers a wide range of restroom solutions, engineered with compact laminates that have an antibacterial surface.
