Information on toilet signs

There are a number of different designs for toilet signs. Everything from very neutral signs in public places, using only the letters WC and marking if it is a men’s or women’s toilet, to the far more personal or humorous toilet door signs found in homes.

Think about where the washroom sign will be at when designing a toilet sign. If the sign is for a home bathroom, the aesthetics are important, as the sign must fit with the ambiance and style of the home. Here, ornate letters or slightly more funny toilet signs are common to make even the classic washroom signs more personal.

In public places, it is more important that the washroom signs are clearly designed and fulfils its function.

Symbol WC signs

When it comes to designing toilet signs for public spaces, it is best to use pictures and the word WC instead of writing TOILET on the sign. This will make it easier for small children and for those who speak another language to find the toilet quickly.

In addition to using pictures and choosing WC signs instead of toilet signs, you should indicate who the toilets are for. Some of the most common variants are Men and Women, Ladies and Gents, which are often indicated by figures wearing trousers or a skirt. You can also challenge gender norms and have gender neutral/unisex toilet signs.

It is important to be clear which is the disabled toilet, something usually marked with the symbol of a wheelchair. Changing facilities are usually indicated with the symbol of a baby on a changing table.

There is a whole range of toilet signs, but the most important thing to keep in mind is universality. Visitors in public establishments may not all understand English. Keep bathroom signs short and to the point, making use of clear pictures and icons that can be easily understood by different nationalities.
