Commercial building owners, especially multi-family ones, face particular challenges when it comes to design and construction. On the one hand, they want their guests and residents to feel at home in a unique, comfortable environment that is stylish. On the other hand, they don’t want to break their budgets OR sacrifice on style. And then there’s the consideration of durability.
Multi-family apartments, student housing and assisted living buildings have to withstand a high level of traffic in all aspects of design and construction, from individual suites to common areas. This can present a problem when owners, architects and designers are all sourcing materials with some focusing more on aesthetics and some on durability — and bathrooms can be particularly problematic.
What if there was a solution? We’re here to tell you there is! Choosing the right bath faucets for your building shouldn’t compromise on anything: You can get both style and durability without breaking the bank. Here’s how we can help!
Things to Consider
There are a few things to consider when sourcing bath faucets for a multi-family building, including:
- Frequency of use
- Type of room (single, multiple guests, multi-family)
- Demographic (students, families, age and mobility requirements)
- Immediate and long-term budget
There is a significant difference between a 500 room student housing building and a more intimate assisted living building, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have similar requirements. Style, durability and budget are always top of mind.
Adjacent considerations such as water flow may not be top of mind, though, and this could become costly, especially for buildings with a lot of faucets; wasted water can add up fast. A low-flow faucet can help you reduce water consumption and lower your monthly bill for long-term savings.
Once you have your considerations in mind, it’s time to get inspired. Here are some bath faucets that won’t break your budget or make you compromise on style.
Matte Black Simplicity
Matte black is an increasingly popular bathroom trend that we love! It’s simple, elegant and can fit into almost any decor. And the nice thing about it is that its look is transferable to any setting.
An overlooked feature of the faucet pictured above is its ease of use. It doesn’t require much to turn the faucet on and off, allowing those residents who find fiddling with taps a physical challenge to use this bathroom with pleasure.
This geometric look is easy to care for and can handle high-frequency use, all without breaking your budget. For more modern looks, check out this article.
It doesn’t matter who your residents are, offering low-flow faucets is just as important as function and style. Not only do they save on water costs, but they are environmentally friendly, something that’s becoming increasingly important to current and potential residents.
In large multi-residence buildings, water consumption can be astronomical. But function shouldn’t sacrifice quality and style. The efficiency of a faucet should only be noticed on the water bill.
Pioneer’s low-flow WaterSense faucets are green-friendly, meaning they can save you up to 30% on your water usage. Plus, our WaterSense program is in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that aims to protect future generations. That’s something to be proud of.
Our WaterSense faucets are of the highest quality, affordable and superior style too! Check out some of these hot trends that will make your multi-family residence talk of the town.
Touchless Sensor Faucets for Communal Spaces
Public and lobby restrooms need to be as efficient and durable as possible, but often these restrooms are part of the first impression residents will have. So it’s important to not only keep this efficiency and durability but also offer style — all at an affordable price.
Particularly these days, the need for touchless surfaces in common spaces is non-negotiable. Pioneer’s touchless sensor faucets aim to fill that need for all our customers.
Our touchless sensor faucets are low-flow, sanitary and easy to use for residents with mobility requirements. Without the need to manually use the faucet, residents can easily wash their hands knowing that their needs are taken care of.
Handheld Showers Faucets for All Needs
We know your guests and residents have a variety of needs, some of which include mobility special needs. Being able to bathe safely and with ease is your top priority, and offering handheld shower faucets that are lightweight, low-flow and of superior quality is our mandate.
Our handheld shower faucets meet that need. They are lightweight, single-handled and stylish. Not only that, they are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and meet all plumbing certifications. This should help you feel assured that you are offering the best experience possible for your residents.
