Bigger Isn’t Always Better: How to Find the Right Wooden Locker Size
Once you’ve decided on a wooden locker design for your locker room, the next thing you’ll need to determine is your locker size. How big do your lockers need to be? One of the biggest benefits of ordering luxury wooden lockers is getting to pick a size perfectly suited for your needs. Bigger isn’t always better, so look to functionality when you’re determining which type of wooden locker you need.
Of course, a big part of the decision about locker size will hinge on the size of your locker room. It’s generally recommended to set aside about 25-30 percent of your facility for your locker room, allotting approximately 10-20 square feet per guest, if possible. Of course, how you use that square footage will depend largely on your clientele. What will your customers do with the locker space? What amenities will you offer? The more inviting your locker room, the more you can expect it to be in high demand, so if you’re installing beautiful luxury lockers in an inviting, spa-like setting, you might want to make sure you have plenty of them with which to host your guests.
The local culture has an impact on locker usage as well. In places where casual style is the norm, your guests may not need much locker space. Where people dress more formally, they’ll need room to hang their clothing and safely store their belongings. It may be that furnishings like benches and vanities are more important to your guests than locker room, or they may have sporting equipment that requires plenty of storage space. If you’re tight on space, you may need to choose smaller lockers, in which case it’s important to make the most of the room you have.
A wooden locker has vast potential for variety in its configurations. You can choose single tier lockers, large enough to hang a suit, double or triple tiers, or even more tiers than that, with small lockers suitable for storing purses, wallets, keys and shoes. Your lockers can have shelves or hooks, or both, depending on how you think your guests will use them.
