An Easy Access Showering Solution

A recent client took the decision to move to a bungalow as he required a ground floor bathroom that could be converted for use by his disabled son. His son used a walking frame and sticks and needed a bathroom he would find easy to access and use.

Taking a look through our pictures below, you can see how the bathroom looked prior to renovation works, the process of carrying out the building works and the fully installed bathroom.

Before

The existing bathroom at the bungalow was situated in a long room with a door on one of the shorter ends, with a basin on the immediate left and a bath tub on the far left.  A toilet was positioned to the right of the bathtub.

The plan was to remove everything and knock a new doorway into his son's next door bedroom to provide a good wide access for his son, whilst also retaining the existing door providing entry into the main hallway.

After

A new wet room style bathroom that provides easy access to the shower with no steps to impede access.  This is the perfect solution for someone using a shower with a frame or walking sticks for support.

The waterproof wooden shower seat used for this job can be folded away when not in use. It's a a popular choice with our customers as it has a good contemporary appearance.

The corner basin helps save space and makes for a wider central area in the bathroom, giving the bather more room to move freely. The floor is anti-slip with cap and cover edges to ensure waterproof protection.

The new bathroom was clad in marble effect cladding with contrasting black marble boards.  The wall cladding and cap and cove flooring makes for an easy to clean bathroom as the cladding can be wiped down and a mop can be worked into the edges of the flooring with ease.
