Changing Room Bench Dimensions and Sizing for Your Washrooms

Changing Room Bench Dimensions and Sizing for Your Washrooms

When shopping around for changing room benches for your commercial washrooms, one of the most important considerations to give, is where and how exactly the benches will fit into the size and design of your washroom. In this article we will briefly touch upon what the recommended changing room bench dimensions and sizes are for your washrooms.

Changing Room Benches & Washroom layouts

It is very important for washrooms to be hygienic and regularly cleaned, so you might want to consider making your benches cantilevered. A cantilevered bench is one that is anchored at one end, so rather than being free-standing, it is fixed to the wall of the washroom. This means that it will be much easier to clean the floors of the washroom, and reduces the risk of corrosion to the frame connections to the floor.

They’re also useful for saving space in your washrooms, as they will be mounted against the wall, leaving more space in the centre of your washroom for things such as additional, free-standing changing room benches.

Changing Room Bench Dimensions

When it comes to the correct size of bench to use for your washroom, this all depends on who the washroom and benches are designed for, and who will be using them;

  • The height of changing room benches for adults, should be around the 450mm mark
  • For teenagers/secondary students (as an example), they should be a bit shorter, at a height of around 400mm.
  • Finally, for younger children like primary school students, changing room benches should be at a height of around 350mm.

It is important to consider who will be using your washroom when deciding what size of changing room bench to use. Most of our changing room benches come with the option of choosing bespoke sizes and dimensions, so you should always be able to find the right fit for your commercial washroom.

You should always be considering a range of factors when deciding on what changing room bench dimensions are needed for your washroom, such as the user preference, the design of your washroom and how much space is available to you.
