Friday Fun: Which Floor Belongs To Which Loo?


Bathroom_blogfest_logo_2Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

This summer BBF C.B. Whittemore invited me to join in the annual Bathroom Blog Fest. Anything that involves C.B. - count me in! Girlfriend, I must admit, I love wonderful bathrooms. I almost bought a house because the bathroom had a chandelier. Honestly. 

Susan Abbott and Stephanie Weaver are the creatives behind the The Bathroom Blog Fest - the blogger event that celebrates National Kitchen and Bath Month. This week bloggers from around the globe wrote about the importance of bathrooms in the customer experience with photographs and stories of great and terrible bathrooms. 

Taking up C.B.'s suggestion I took a couple of photos of floors. Since it's Friday Fun let's play a Guess Which Floor Belongs In Which Loo Game. Your challenge, should you accept it, is to match the photo with the venue. 

The Venues:  A. Atlanta Harsfield-Jackson Airport;  B. Expensive Restaurant Midtown Atlanta; C. Steak House Restaurant  - Chicago; D. Cute Funky Restaurant Chandler Park Atlanta

Answers: 1-D; 2-A; 3-B; 4-C

How well did you do? Anything surprise you? Did the floors reflect the image of the venue that you had in your mind? In a retail bathroom setting  .. do floors matter more to women or to men? Do they matter at all?

Lessons Learned: The little things, like a floor, can the image of a brand.

This blog is great. In fact, I DO notice the floors of the public bathrooms I visit. A clean, sophisticated bathroom is a great PR tactic. How so? People, especially women, tend to hunt out possible bathroom stops. In the malls, I always make a bee-line for the cleanest and prettiest bathroom. The winner? In Portland, I always head for Nordstrom's or Macy's. And of course, do a little shopping on my way out! If more places upped the bathroom competition, I guarantee stores would get more than a little toilet attention.
