Rethinking Hotel Bathroom Design

Today designers and architects are looking to the hotel bathroom as the new frontier of the guestroom, turning what has long been a mostly functional space into a haven and means of escape.      Bathrooms are playing an ever more crucial role in the customer experience.

Interior designers are responding in several ways, in particular by opening up closed and cluttered bathrooms through increasing the levels of light and space.

Matteo Thun, designer and world renowned architect shares this belief, “Bathrooms in hotels are not getting bigger, they remain small spaces. If you want to integrate them into the living or sleeping area, you simply have to take down the walls”

 

The drive to create additional space within existing boundaries has been working in harmony with the opening up of buildings to provide more light. There are several methods being employed to achieve this, none more popular than the increasing trend to remove walls. Wall partitioning within guest rooms diminishes both light and space but has been seen as necessary for bathroom privacy.

 

Privacy Smartglass is the ideal solution for creating a bright open space as it not only lets more light into the bathroom but also gives the impression of increased space throughout the entire room. Thun states, “Every bathroom should have natural light – and nothing but indirect light sources”.

Thun also believes that hygeine and cleanliness are of fundamental importance and that the surfaces within this area are designed to allow for this. Smartglass offers the ideal solution to this design consideration due to its easy clean low maintenance surface while also delivering privacy on demand for this personal space.
