    A bathroom in a business or professional setting is especially important, as it can be a reflection of the care and attention that the business expends for those who do business with them, in addition to those who work for them. A shabby, dirty or cluttered business bathroom does not leave a good impression, whereas a clean, well-lit, and updated room can provide an image that inspires confidence and comfort.
