When it comes to effective washroom design the biggest challenges are in the public sector. The public has different demands for washrooms in settings such as commercial buildings or offices. A particularly challenging design is in creating systems for toilets in shopping malls, as there are many unique considerations.
Public bathrooms are a major step up from bathroom interior design for homes. Shopping centres will have to contend with the following issues, and plan around them if they want an effective outcome:
When thinking about planning washrooms and cubicle systems in shopping centres it can be difficult to know what the best approach might be, perhaps because the amount of variation and choice is so overwhelming. However, as experts in installing toilets in shopping malls and many other sectors, we are well-placed to explain.
The toilets in shopping malls can be functional, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing with the right approach – and here we will explore a bit further. If you have a project to complete in a shopping centre and would like imaginative washrooms delivered by leading bathroom design experts, please feel free to get in touch with us to learn more.
Malls are quite strange places, you can easily spend a whole day there or just half an hour. Some malls incorporate restaurants, cinemas and other facilities that make it quite possible to remain ensconced within the building for the longer term. As such, washrooms and toilet facilities are crucial to get right.
Think about the following when installing toilets in shopping malls or other large scale shopping centres:
A bad bathroom in a shopping centre can actively suck business away from the area. If there is a poor design, delays from excess users and stoppages when things go wrong can make that section of the mall unappealing to shoppers and tenants. Good bathroom design will deliver a sufficient user experience through intelligent planning.
Having an effective washroom and bathroom system is important for many sectors, with a commercial space like a shopping mall having unique considerations.
There are significant challenges beyond these considerations, namely planning and installing the precise materials for the space. Designs can change, and modern installations use technology such as building information modelling (or (BIM)), which allows projects to be planned almost to the last screw parts.
The efficiency gains from BIM allow for a larger number of toilets or other bathroom features to be installed most cost-effectively, as avoiding waste and construction difficulties is the easiest way to see expenses remain under control.
