Commercial bathrooms can be a taboo subject. In commercial areas, attention is paid to the lobby or the office space. All areas have this self-proclaimed focus space, which receives the entire design and technical attention. Why not change something? Stand out. Make your own trend. Steal the attention.
And you can start in the bathroom.
Get out of the kitchen and lobby
Contractors, builders and marketers of buildings have a long tradition of focusing on the kitchen. It is the heart of the house, and buyers are simply not happy with the spaceless, strange, dreary kitchen of yore. However, today this kitchen has been modernized and modernized so that it is no longer so outstanding. It is boring. The same applies to commercial lobby areas.
Everything can be popular until everyone has it. Then the thrill loses its thrill, doesn't it? This applies to the kitchen and the lobby. So why not talk about the other important room that every single room is likely to have – the bathroom?
The bathroom gets the end of attention in many cases, but it is just as important – if not more – than your other commercial and living spaces. In fact, millennials are already taking notice of the bathroom and demanding that it conform to the technology-based solutions that they have become accustomed to in the rest of their surroundings.
In the living area, wash away the outer elements here to keep your home and yourself clean. The necessary functions of life take place here. This is the only place you can go and make sure you have a moment of loneliness. This is where you go if you want to fix your problems with your favorite book or drink. There's a lot going on in there.
In the commercial area, the bathroom resembles the view under a person's bed. The care that a brand takes to keep their bathroom clean, functional, comfortable and organized shows a lot about their commitment to a healthy building, staff and guests. Think, for example, of the maintenance department's job of constantly removing offending graffiti and the housekeeping of keeping the handles clean enough not to “yuck” users.
Even without the wheezy dirtiness, most people know that a bathroom is only microscopically dirty by nature. So why not offer the functions of your home or business bathroom that are clean to interact with and minimize contact with what isn't so clean?
After we have determined that the bathroom is the right place to be clean, it should be at the top of your agenda.
You sell a construction. Imagine the appeal of a blurb that presents a chic bathroom instead of writing the same old blurb about how great the kitchen could be. Now you have an outstanding sales argument!
Imagine the guests and employees of your business building taking selfies in the bathroom and labeling your name with an innovative function for intelligent bathrooms that your competitors have completely overlooked. In addition, the additional cleanliness around the Germaphoben will impress!
It is time to use and enjoy the intelligent bathroom functions.
The coolest intelligent bathroom functions
There is actually a lot of technology to beautify the bathroom and to bring it in line with other rooms that are already automating their own functions. Let's take a look at some:
1. The intelligent bathroom partition
Recycled bathroom partitions made from recycled HDPE plastic and phenol are extremely durable, quick to repair and show a brand's commitment to sustainable, environmentally friendly materials.
HDPE is a solid plastic paint made from polyethylene resin and high density pigments, and phenol is a melamine film with layers of resin-impregnated kraft paper. Both materials are perfect to withstand heavy traffic in the bathroom. They are also scratch-resistant and give your modern bathroom a long-lasting new look.
HDPE has the added advantage of being antimicrobial, which is important to prevent mold and mildew from forming. While HDPE and phenol are both anti-graffiti, HDPE has the advantage of not having a coating that deteriorates over time, or special maintenance procedures.
Your maintenance team will thank you for the investment, and your bathroom guests will respect not having to come into contact with stained and graffitized bathroom cabins. Remember that perception increases the value of your commercial space and your brand.
This is a particularly solid investment in male toilets where privacy, comfort and cleanliness are often overlooked.
Since partitions are not the most glamorous part of the business, you want to complete the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. There are two options: local and online.
Local bathroom partitions can manufacture and install partitions in the dimensions you need. The professionals are that they do all the work for you. This is probably the best way for the majority of small businesses. The disadvantages are that you pay more and have fewer options in terms of materials and colors. It can also take a while for small businesses to put the order together. So don't be surprised if the lead time is a few weeks longer than expected.
If you're familiar with a tape measure (or know someone who is), you can order bathroom partitions directly online. Specialized companies selling bathroom partitions offer a wider range of products and can use their volume to get lower prices than you would pay locally. The downside is that assembly and installation will be your problem. Think of it as an IKEA on steroids.
2. Non-contact technology
How many bathrooms have you visited and noticed that napkins or bundles of wet toilet paper are on the floor by the door? At first glance, you may think that these are just ruthless visitors, but the truth is that these napkins are the user's last stop to touching as little as possible in the bathroom.
With studies showing how dirty bathroom surfaces really are, non-contact bathrooms can also be an asset to the health of your building or home. They also reduce water wastage to keep water bills manageable and keep the environment healthy. No more crowded sinks with Smart Shutoff and On!
Capacity field taps combine artistic design with the ability to pick up movements in the appropriate area for hand washing. Combine it with a non-contact hand pump, an AirBlade dryer and a non-contact door sensor or press the paddle outlet to ensure that there are no piles of paper on the door.
The average house was once priced out of commercial non-contact bathroom fittings. However, residential bathrooms have the same germ problems as commercial areas. Objects touched are germination paradises.
Today, however, stylish living options are plentiful and affordable. You can even save space and squeeze out garbage by installing automatic soap dispensers in your bath or shower. If you really want to step up your water conservation efforts, try a sensor-controlled automatic shower that can be programmed to turn off after a period of time.
All of the above technologies are not only useful for keeping your home or business space physically clean, they also provide clean, optimized aesthetics.
3. Smart tech for comfort
How about a chemical-free, job-free toilet cleaner that naturally keeps odors away? Biodegradable cleaning dispensers like TOELECT do just that. You can kill bacteria and odors with an electrolyte water generator that doesn't use harsh chemicals.
Add a towel-warming basket or a built-in space for perfectly heated towels. You also never have to worry about leaving it on as it has a handy automatic shutdown. The cabinets can even be tempered for the storage of medication and cold drinks if you use the spa.
Hold your bathroom floor like a spa with stylish radiant heating systems made of laminate, tiles, stone or wood materials. And yes, they even program your smart devices so that they can be easily preset or switched on or off remotely.
4. Meet the smart toilet
Toilets are no longer the lazy, dirty objects of yesterday. Today you can modernize your toilet as your budget allows.
Smart toilets simply look better aesthetically. They can hide unsightly plumbing lines and sensors, and their preprogramming features make most models non-contact.
Smart seats are your cheapest upgrade option. The materials are more hygienic and durable against hinge problems. Some models just close slowly to prevent noise, other models have an automatic lid and a seat flap for hands-free operation. Certain models also have a seat warming function.
A water spray option (bidet wand) is a hygienic supplement that saves toilet paper consumption and helps reduce the irritation of certain diseases such as hemorrhoids. Heated nozzles ensure that the water spray has the perfect temperature.
Bowl and tank systems are more expensive, but offer hands-free flushing. A bowl mist function keeps dirt and bacteria away from the bowl. The LED key lighting also ensures that you find your way and hit the target in the dark.
Of course, eco-friendly models use a lower GPF (gallons per flush) to keep water consumption to a minimum. If your brand wants to send the message that they care about the health and safety of their bathroom visitors and the environment, an intelligent toilet will wash away any doubt.
Are you smart about your bathroom?
In summary, these intelligent bathrooms are as functional as they are aesthetic. From cleanliness to comfort, today's smart bathroom is a trend for any business or home. For this reason, Market Watch predicts a global smart bathroom market worth nearly $ 11 million by 2023.
