Beautiful Wheelchair Friendly Bathrooms
Wall hung bathroom products have become very popular as they are seen as stylish and give a boutique designer look to a bathroom. We have found that designing with these products is also useful when allowing for wheelchair access in a bathroom. When combined with some thoughtful ideas about ease of use and safety we can create beautiful bathrooms that are an enjoyable and relaxing experience to use.
The Ideal Standard Concept Freedom range meets the needs of those seeking a contemporary and modern look with all the thoughtful design elements that make it accessible and easy to use for those in a wheelchair. It includes an extended wall hung WC pan with rimless profile seat and a wall hung basin, both provide easy access and stylish grab rails can be added if required without compromising on the aesthetics.
Replacing a bath with a floor level showering area opens up a bathroom for wheelchair access. The addition of a fold away or removable seat in the shower maintains the space and provides additional comfort. Once again these don’t have to look like something out of a hospital ward but can be selected to blend with the contemporary and designer feel of the room.
There is also a wealth of options when it comes to shower controls and taps. From easy grip, elongated handles, that give added torque and leverage for less strenuous use to a fully digital remote control.
A slip resistant flooring is a final addition that can create a safe environment. There are anti- slip tiles, vinyl or rubber sheets available that can add colour and texture to the bathroom design.
