Hotels are at the forefront of bathroom design. Hotels are well known for teaming up with recognized bathroom fixture manufacturers to push the boundaries of décor and luxury. Fixture manufacturers and their hotel clients are the first to interpret the latest styles and start new trends.
Walk-in showers are a staple of luxury hotels. Walk-in showers offer the illusion of space, much more than a conventional in-tub shower. Walk-in showers are made with glass curtain walls to give the guest the impression of size and space.
Walk-in showers give more than the feeling of space; they are also very safe as there is no need to step over the tub wall. Hotel guests that are wheelchair bound benefit greatly from this concept.
Rain showerheads are used to emulate a spa-like experience, taking the walk-in shower to the next level of luxury. Knowing that many guests are not keen on being deluged, the shower is also fitted with a hand-held showerhead installed on wall mounted slide bars.
Lighting and Mirrors
The ambiance is something designers work hard to create. However, it must also be functional. One key to creating this feel is lighting. Many properties are installing backlit mirrors as well as magnifying mirrors. Backlit mirrors are effective as they provide evenly distributed light for shaving, applying make-up, and other daily tasks.
Hotel guests look for luxury, but at the same time are environmentally conscious. Hotel designers are adding dual-flush toilets and using LED lighting as well as installing luxurious stone top vanities. Many hotels are going the “area mile” by insisting on biodegradable bottles for amenities such as shampoo and conditioner, too.
In any new construction or room renovation, bathroom fixture manufacturers and suppliers are faced with challenges. If it is a room renovation, the original layout often makes installing a walk-in shower a problem due to relocating drains and water lines. Visit Curve Hospitality for more info.
