There have definitely been improvements in the amenities available in public restrooms, but there’s still a long way to go. There are many things over which individuals have no control, such as how often toilet tissue and soap are replenished, but are essential for any public bathroom.
Cleanliness is critical and as a greater awareness of the spread of viral, bacterial and fungal infections is available, there are practical elements as well as aesthetics to consider. The following are just some of the essentials that people want to see in public bathrooms.
Better Wheelchair Access
Public bathrooms typically have one stall set aside for people in wheelchairs. In some instances, individuals can tell that they were hastily added to accommodate federal laws, not designed for convenience, and are often used by people without disabilities due to the stall’s larger size.
No one can predict when a baby will need a diaper change and a changing table is essential in any public bathroom, whether it’s a men’s or women’s facility. Men change diapers, too, and every parent needs a safe surface upon which to change their baby.
A dirty diaper is messy, stinky, and simply throwing them in a waste receptacle is unsanitary. Public bathrooms should be equipped with plastic bags in which diapers can be deposited for disposal in a receptacle. It’s a clean solution that also eliminates odors.
Menstruation can catch young girls and even adult women unaware and they don’t typically carry sanitary protection with them. Dispensers with multiple products should be installed in every public bathroom, even those designed as family bathrooms used by men and women.
Children get messy and they’re not always tall enough to reach the sink. Wipes are an easy solution to the problem.
This includes pressure sensors or photo-eye toilets that automatically flush, along with soap and air dryers that are motion activated.
Working Door Locks
Bathroom door locks are the bane of a user’s existence. They break easily and are often repaired in a haphazard manner – if at all.
