Choosing the Right Amenities for Your Locker Room
If you’re designing a locker room, you’ve probably given a lot of thought to the lockers, floors and layout of the room. You’ve considered whether you want wood lockers or metal, tile floors or carpeted, and where the bathroom should be in proximity to the locker room. What about amenities? Have you chosen the niceties that will make your locker room stand out from the crowd? Here’s some food for thought.
- First, think of the big things. Security is, of course, the largest concern, and people want lockers that will not only look good but also keep their belongings safe. Above that, though, you’ll want to provide benches for people to use when changing shoes and such, but what other furniture will you want to have in your locker room? Seating areas where guests can relax? Vanities with blow dryers and curling irons provided? Will your showers be individual, with frosted doors for privacy? Once you’ve determined the kind of locker room you want, you can determine which pieces will be a necessity.
- Next, consider the ambience. What do you want the overall mood of your locker room to be? Will it be rowdy and lively, with flat screens broadcasting sports overhead? Or will it be spa-like and quiet, with ambient lighting and elegant touches? There’s really no wrong answer, but you need to decide on your goal for locker room atmosphere before you equip it.
- Finally, pay attention to detail. Here’s where the little niceties come into play. What kind of toilet paper will be in your locker room restrooms? Will you provide soap and shampoo? How about towels? Knowing your clientele, and their expectations, will help you make the little decisions that push your locker room to the next level.
