Updating to a Better Business Bathroom

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.

The tone of a bathroom should depend on the business. A medical office, law firm, coffee shop and art gallery might have very different décor, colors and fixtures. Whereas pristine white, modern fixtures and soothing colors might suit a medical office, a law firm might choose something conservative yet luxurious. A coffee shop might choose to be more funky and offbeat, while an art gallery might go for a creative, yet upscale style. Therefore, consider the statement the room expresses and whether it is a reflection of the image that fits the specific business. 

Next, consider color schemes in your new business bathroom. In most professional settings, the walls should be neutral or muted. White walls can be too harsh, and beige may be too boring. However, there are toned down shades of most colors that are available and that can give a subdued effect while still providing some color. Consider soft, mossy greens, blue-grays, or perhaps a fawn color.

Importantly, a business bathroom should provide an unfussy, cohesive appearance. Regardless of style, fixtures and vanities should be coordinated, and metal fixtures should match. Ensure that there is enough storage for essentials that may be needed, such as supplies to keep the room fresh throughout the business day. Unnecessary clutter should be removed and stored out of sight.

Lighting should be sufficient to ensure safety and security, and will be especially appreciated around the mirror. Worn, cracked or discolored flooring should be replaced with a non-slip, durable, and easy to clean product. Your business bathroom should reflect a professional and complete design.

A welcoming room can ensure a better office environment for everyone and provide clients with a better impression. Consider adding warmth and interest through art and fresh flowers, rather than dusty, tired- looking old decorative items. Provide pleasant hand soap, lotion, facial tissues, and air freshener to show the business cares. Then, make sure it stays clean, uncluttered and well supplied throughout the day.
