Easy Ways to Renovate a Commercial Bathroom
Much like residential bathrooms, commercial bathrooms need to be upgraded every once and a while to keep them looking fresh, modern, and approachable. The frequency of your renovations will depend on how often people use your bathrooms, but it is something that you will need to think about eventually. You don’t have to spend a fortune on new tile and fixtures if they are still in good condition. There are other ways to renovate a commercial bathroom without having to spend a fortune. Here are some options to keep in mind.
Upgrade the Toilet Partitions
Unless you have a single toilet in your commercial bathroom, chances are you have stalls separated by restroom partitions. These suspended walls and doors are built to last, so you probably won’t need to upgrade them from a functionality standpoint. However, changing out the color or style of your toilet partitions can make your bathroom look newer and more modern. For instance, if you have plastic partitions in an outdated color, you may switch to stainless steel partitions. These look sleek, contemporary, and high end.

Add Urinal Screens
Urinal screens are considered within the realm of toilet partitions, but they are a little more “optional” than standard partitions. Many men’s restrooms do not have urinal screens because they do not have room to place them between each urinal. If you have this type of space available though, this would be a great way to upgrade your bathroom without spending a ton of money. It will also improve your customer and employee satisfaction because men in the building will have more privacy when using the restroom. Urinal screens are durable, easy to clean and easy to install, so you are guaranteed to get a great return on investment.
Replace Worn or Broken Fixtures
Worn, damaged and broken bathroom fixtures can make even the cleanest of commercial restrooms look uncared for. For instance, if a customer goes into a stall and sees the trash receptacle hanging crookedly from the partition, he or she may assume that you don’t take care of your business. Do an assessment of your commercial bathroom and see what can realistically be replaced.

Deep Clean the Tile Grout
Restroom and kitchen grout is far more susceptible to staining than grout in other areas. This can make your bathroom look dingy and dirty, even if you know it has been well sanitized. Deep clean your grout at least once a year to remove these stains and make the tile look like new again. If you have white grout, you can use a bleach-based cleaning solution to brighten and whiten the grout lines. Otherwise, you will need to use a grout cleaning product specific to your flooring.
With the right upgrades in the right places, you can make your commercial restroom look like new again.
