According to a Healthy Hand Washing Survey, a whopping 89% of people believe that the state of a washroom reflects how a business values its employees.
If toilets have the power to make staff feel valued and appreciated, then surely it’s a given that they can also influence customer opinion too.
Want to make sure you’re creating a good impression?
Then the answer doesn’t just lie in overhauling toilets – you need to review the entire washroom and update the look of your handwashing area too.
And the best way to do this?
Here the team at M&P Fittings look in more detail at the frequently undervalued benefits of vanity units and why every business should invest.
What is a vanity unit?
A vanity unit combines a sink with an excellent way of covering pipework.
By effectively boxing in sinks and the necessary (but typically unsightly) plumbing required, they increase storage and extend worktop space.
The result is a practical but stylish fitting that helps to streamline the look and feel of washrooms.
4 reasons to fit vanity units
#1. They look good
Perhaps the biggest draw to commercial vanity units is the look.
Fitting vanity units updates and modernises the appearance of a washroom. They create a more orderly, clean, and tidy impression and are a great way to hide ugly pipework.
Match vanity units with toilet cubicles to create a continuous flow to the area or mix things up with a contrasting colour. Either way, they’re guaranteed to smarten up the look of any bathroom.
#2. Maintenance made easy
Covering over pipes isn’t just a bonus for the aesthetics of a washroom, it also helps to boost hygiene levels.
By eliminating awkward nooks and crannies there are fewer areas for dirt and germs to hide. And cleaning is transformed into a quick and simple task, resulting in a fresher feeling and more hygienic environment.
#3. Save money
This is the biggie for many businesses.
Bathroom renovations often boil down to costs. But whilst investing in vanity units may cost you more initially, they can often save you money in the long run.
How? By reducing the time needed for cleaning and maintenance and by helping to avoid expensive repairs.
Exposed plumbing is easily damaged and can be a target for vandalism. Free-standing sinks are also easily pulled away from the wall. By fitting vanity units, you afford your handwashing area more protection.
#4. Maximise space
Where are your spare loo rolls kept? In the stationary cupboard? Under a desk?
When it comes to maximising space, creating roomy toilets is rarely a priority. Often, they are tight, with little elbow room and zero storage. This makes staying on top of the basics – soap, hand towels, toilet roll etc – a challenge.
By switching to vanity units, you can create additional storage in an area that would otherwise go to waste, with cupboard space underneath the sink. Make this cupboard lockable and store all your bathroom essentials in a safe and convenient spot.
With increased worktop, you also make using the area more comfortable, offering somewhere for people to rest their belongings while they wash their hands or use the mirror.
