So you run a business. You rely on people walking in off the street and buying your wares. The merchandise is high quality, the prices are reasonable, and you have regular sales events that customers know and look for. Your aisles are clean, your storefront windows are spotless. Your displays are eye catching and your staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. You have everything covered, right?
But what about your bathroom?
Commercial lavatories can make or break a business. Obviously your restrooms have to be clean, but with just a little bit of research and investment, you can go beyond just cleanliness. Your restrooms can work just as hard to please customers as the rest of your store. And, as odd as it might sound, your customers could recommend your restroom to their friends.
Start with the door. Many commercial lavatories have a single color metal door, but what about the unique and far more inviting look of natural wood? Solid wood doors are just as effective as drab metal doors, but even those drab metal doors can be given a high quality veneer to look like wood. And what about the lock? Is it a confusing knob button or a simple and sturdy deadbolt? Customers relish their privacy, especially in commercial lavatories, and an easy to operate door lock can go a long way towards putting them at ease when they just might need to be relaxed the most.
Which brings us to ventilation. Having a high quality fan system in commercial lavatories is a great way to keep the air circulating, and, in all honesty, to enhance the sense of privacy through extra noise. And having a fan that turns on at the same time as the light makes for one less thing for a patron to search for. The lighting itself can also be very important. Fluorescent bulbs can produce a harsh light, unpleasant to many customers and tragically common in commercial lavatories. Instead, try an incandescent bulb, which will not only produce softer, warmer light but also open the possibilities of decorative fixtures to further tie in your overall style.
All these improvements, and we hardly have gotten through the door! But you can begin to see the importance of the overall experience commercial lavatories can provide for your customers. By applying these same principles (comfort, ease, security, and style), you can tweak everything from color of the commercial lavatory sinks to the kind of toilet paper you include. And you can give your customers a first rate experience, no matter where they are in your store. Ger more information on this topic here: www.mansfieldplumbing.com
