Bathrooms are being built by our land lord, but they only wanted to promise painted walls. My belief is that the only thing that matters with bathrooms is how clean they feel. I don’t care if you’re at an upscale nightclub, or in one of the fruffy bathrooms at Panera or Starbucks: if things are dirty and broken that’s the impression you leave with.
So I wanted stainless steel walls for easy cleaning. We coordinated with our landlord to stop work momentarily while some folks I hired rushed around cutting stainless for the walls.
