Not sure where to start? We got you covered. Here’s Acorn plumbing products’ guide to commercial restroom remodeling.
Why Remodel Using Acorn Plumbing Products? Even if you’re not thinking of reselling your commercial building so increasing its value is not immediately important, renovating an old restroom will still give your rental revenue a boost. Tenants are more likely to go for a newer building and pay a premium for it.
First impressions are everything in business and if your building isn’t giving them the look they want to present to their customers, you’re losing valuable clients.
Attract tenants by giving your restroom a fresh updated look. Acorn can help you with that. Acron provides innovative restroom solutions that are engineered to commercial specifications and lifestyle changes. Acorn has extensive plumbing solutions for whatever commercial toilet needs you may have.
To start your remodeling project, here are some steps you’ll want to take.
Think of the Entrance and Exit Flow If the entryway is a part of your commercial restroom project, think about how it affects traffic flow and queuing.
A toilet that may be locked from the inside, for example, may result in an unnecessary queue.
Imagine, in a locked bathroom, one person may be in the stall and two others may be waiting outside the door. Meanwhile, in an unlocked facility, one individual could be in the restroom stall, washing and drying their hands. Queuing is minimal in the second scenario, and the facility is working at maximum efficiency.
You may want to consider a labyrinth-style entrance which will eliminate the need for a door completely.
Here are some benefits to having a labyrinth-style entrance.
● Reduces the number of surfaces users come into touch with, limiting the spread of diseases.
● Reduces the occurrence of vandalism because there is no door that can serve as a shield.
● If the walkway is wide enough to accommodate two lanes of traffic, it improves traffic flow.
● Allows management to act if a user fails to answer the door immediately in case of emergencies.
To allow users to enter and exit without having to squeeze through or bump into each other, consider having a separate entry and exit.
Get Matching Restroom Fixtures Your restroom fixtures are a crucial design element. Faucets, sinks, soap dispensers, hand dryers, handles, holders, and other plumbing fixtures can make a major impact on the look of your restroom. A functional restroom is important but you also don’t want to spend a ton of money on crappy design, do you?
So aside from function, you should also consider style and finish. Plumbing fixtures’ finishes can be stainless steel, chrome, gold, brass, and others. Decide what kind of look you want to achieve and start from there.
You can also coordinate the restroom color to the unifying color of the building. The color should complete your building’s look, not clash with it.
