One line, one design, for the perfect washroom experience
Style and design
In today’s washroom environment, style and design are pinnacle factors in creating a long lasting impression for visitors and staff. Accessories are amongst one of the most important components when renovating or creating a new washroom design. Choosing the right accessories can add style, practicality and consistency to the scheme. There are many accessories on the market that can create a smart and unique washroom to suit any budget. We explore why adding matching accessories is so important and why they have the biggest impact on a user’s experience.
In most cases people believe that the washroom isn’t the forefront of people’s minds when they are leaving a review for an establishment such as a hotel or retail space. However, washrooms can be the first and last thing a customer or a visitor see’s, particularly in retail environments, hotels or even in offices. Creating the right atmosphere with a range of contemporary accessories can really leave a long lasting impression.
People often forget about the importance of washroom accessories as they are usually chosen and installed at the end of washroom refurbishments. But these are the products that visitors will use the most. Soap dispensers and hand dryers can particularly have an effect on people's thoughts when visiting the washroom. If a soap dispenser is of poor quality or a hand dryer is too loud and doesn’t dry hands properly it will definitely leave a bad impression on the user, therefore it is important to consider not only style, but quality when choosing accessories.
Breaking away from mismatching styles and furnishes can separate your washroom from the rest, Giving the washroom a luxurious look and feel. Whatever the specification or budget there are products on the market that can make a washroom stand out. Adding coordinating ranges of accessories such as matching soap dispensers, hand dryers and waste bins can bring the room to life and add value to the whole washroom. Extra details like unique and stylised mirrors can also add to the character and atmosphere of the washroom making it feel like an all-important part of the building and much more than an afterthought.
