Since the recommended installation heights for sinks, toilets, and hand dryers vary between men and women, consider installing some of each if the unisex bathroom has room for multiple stalls, sinks, and hand dryers. An architectural trend known as “universal design” refers to creating public spaces to accommodate people of all ages and mobility levels.
In part because the Americans with Disabilities Act requires unisex bathrooms to include sinks and facilities of varying heights, and the building industry has responded by creating “multi-height lavatory systems” that combine sinks of different heights in the same fixture for easier installation. Ask your bathroom fixture supplier for details.
