Information on toilet signs

There are a number of different designs for toilet signs or bathroom 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.

There are a number of things to consider 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 humorous signs are common to make even the classic WC sign more personal. In public places, it is more important that the toilet sign is clearly designed and fulfils its function – to show people where the toilet is.

Clear WC signs with symbols

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, which are often indicated by figures wearing trousers or a skirt. You can also challenge gender norms and have different pictures or divisions.

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.
