If you are a designer or going to hire a designer, please give some practical thought to the design. The picture below is of a shower I once encountered in a hotel. Note that the soap tray is directly below the shower head. Being a hotel, the shower head leaked like crazy. That water would drip and accumulate in the soap tray. Have you ever seen a soap bar that sits in water? It's slimy and disgusting. My point is, this could have been easily avoided if the designer had put himself in the shoes (figuratively) of a person taking a shower, especially in a hotel. Here are some questions to ask yourself.
- When I get undressed, where do I put my clothes and keep them dry?
- Where can I put my toiletry kit?
- Is there ample horizontal surfaces in the shower where I can place soap, face wash, shampoo, etc.?
- Are those horizontal surfaces dry?
