The office washroom has been a place of calm for us all. Have you heard a newspaper rustled in the cubicle? Have you caught up on social media or simply daydreamed away for a few short moments in the washroom?
Yes, it has been a refuge for most of us. What great ideas have been dreamt up, office plots hatched, dates organised? Our cautions reduce and a the mind is more at ease.
It is surprising that companies do not make them more welcoming and see them as a way for ‘worker bees’ to recharge? Over decades space has reduced at times to an uncomfortable cramped level. Too often what we call washrooms are dingy, spartan and driven by cost.
With many of us hoping to get back to the office is it not time to invest in making them more appealing and comfortable?
