Top Considerations To Make A Bathroom More Accessible

Whether you or one of your loved ones is suffering from mobility issues, there are some parts of the home that are more difficult to navigate than others. Bathrooms can present particular challenges for those who have reduced mobility.

However, as an article for Home Town Station recently pointed out, there are several ways in which you can make the bathroom at your home more accessible. First up is replacing your bathtub with a walk-in shower and level access shower tray.

This means there is no lip around the edge of the shower, not only reducing the risk of someone tripping, but also making the shower wheelchair friendly.

Another element of your bathroom that it can be easy to overlook is the doorway. Widening this to allow it to comfortably accommodate a wheelchair might therefore be another alteration you want to consider.

When it comes to other bathroom fixtures and fittings, it’s important to think about how you can make it as easy and comfortable as possible for everyone in your household to use them. For instance, a wall-mounted sink with no fitting below can make the sink much more accessible.

Taps with sensors could also be helpful if someone in your household struggles to turn taps on and off, for instance.

As we recently pointed out, ageing in place, where older people stay in their homes for longer, is becoming more popular and common in the UK. That may mean that you have to make some adaptations to your home to ensure it is still suitable and safe for you to live in as you get older.
