Accessible Wet Floor Shower Case Study | Wakefield | West Yorkshire
Published: 28 January 2016
Mr & Mrs Beverly had a small, outdated & fully tiles, 3 piece bathroom suite consisting of an oval pedestal basin, back-to-wall WC and a 70’s style sky blue bath with an over shower mixer. In conjunction with the bathroom requiring an update in terms of modernisation, it also required some stylish & accessible solutions to be incorporated into the refurbishment works to help overcome present bathing problems and issues.
Garry Kirkbright, more ability surveyor & designer discussed the couples requirements, wants, needs and desires in detail before proposing what he believed to be an ideal solution. Through conversation the couple expressed their desire to turn the bathroom into a shower room for the purpose of ease of use and accessibility. Furthermore it was highlighted crucial that the shower room be aspirational in appearance regardless of its underlying purpose.
Unaware of possible shower solutions, sanitary ware fixtures, floor & wall coverings and any additional extras or accessories the couple were keen to pick Garry’s brains when it comes to choice and itemised selection – they needed to directional advice.
The finished suite was absolutely stunning. The chosen shower solution was a wet floor, enclosed by crystal white wall boards and completed with a chrome shower mixer, chrome grab rails and a glass flipper screen. The rest of the suite was fully tiled in white wavy wall tiles and feature a full length vanity unit housing a mounted basin and back-to-wall concealed cistern WC. A large, wall spanning mirror was used to open up the room, giving the impression it is more spacious than room allows as a result of light reflecting properties. To finish off the floor was covered in granite grey slip resistant vinyl providing the room finishing touch to a room that could only be described as elegantly safe and gracefully stylish.
what mr & mrs beverly said about more ability:
“The installation of our bathroom has been completed today and I need to say how very pleased we are with it, it's beautiful. Our thanks must go to Tony Lister who has installed everything, he is very professional, polite, talented, and an absolute star who is fantastic, my husband and I would like to wish him a very happy retirement. Thank you.”
