Benefits of Joinery Furniture in Your Rest Rooms

Hospitals, shopping centres, schools, offices – the public spaces we live in come in many shapes, sizes, and purposes. They are made to a wide variety of standards and considerations. Some require kitchens, others require waiting rooms, but there’s one room that all these facilities absolutely need – toilets.

Public toilets are a necessity everywhere we go. They receive high traffic, and therefore must be designed and built with careful consideration and with suitable equipment.

In this blog, we explore why DuraPlan’s wooden veneers and joinery furniture is the superior choice for public restroom design.


Vanities are an essential addition to any restroom. A place to wash and dry our hands is an absolute necessity to stop the spread of viruses and bacteria, and to maintain good hygienic practices.

Compact laminate with wood-grain vanities is fast becoming a popular choice, especially in shopping centres and offices, as they are easy to clean, resistant to moisture, wear, and graffiti, while also exuding a natural sense of quality and comfort. Joinery furniture from DuraPlan is a stronger and sleeker option and is made with solid-grade laminate and powder coated aluminium trims, offering years of quality. The clean-cut design of joinery furniture is available in a wide range of colours and can easily blend with and complement existing facilities.

Wall Panelling

Wall panelling is another key feature in public restroom design. Compact laminate with wood-grain design on restroom walls isn’t just easy to clean and resistant to graffiti, but it also improves the overall aesthetic of the room with its beautiful, timeless appearance.

DuraPlan’s innovative decorative bathroom wall lining is made from thermosetting resins and reinforced with cellulose fibres that are manufactured under high pressure and temperature. As a result, these wall panels are durable, self-supporting, and moisture resistant. Used for a wide range of commercial restrooms, they are easy to install, clean, and will stand the test of time.

Cubicle Partitioning

Probably the most essential component to any public restroom, cubicle partitioning is what provides the privacy and safety that users depend on. They must also be built with inclusive design practices in mind, meaning that every person should be able to access them easily. This includes ambulant toilets for people living in wheelchairs.
