Over the last 10 years we have become increasingly involved in working with customers who have specific mobility requirements for their bathrooms.
Quite often this will require the existing bath be removed to allow for the installation of a large low lying shower tray and glass screen creating a far more practical “walk in” shower scenario.
Alternatively the customer’s situation may necessitate installing a complete Wetroom using either slip resistant tiling or where required specialist vinyl flooring.
As part of any installation where a customer’s mobility and safety are key we invariably also install suitable shower seats and strategically positioned grab handles as in most cases although the customer may have certain mobility restrictions, they would obviously wish to continue to shower independently. As well as this we also go to every effort to ensure that the installation is reflective of the customer’s home in terms of its presentation as opposed to looking like a more commercial installation. Practical and yet aesthetically pleasing.
As well as the type of work mentioned above, we have also seen a huge increase in recent years in the number of customers asking for Wetroom installations purely as an alternative to a more traditional bathroom or ensuite. A well fitted Wetroom can transform a typical bathroom into a stylish, luxurious space and is invariably far less maintenance in terms of cleaning. Also contrary to what some of our customers had been led to believe there are very few site circumstances where installing a Wetroom is not a viable option.
