Accessible Easy Access Bath Case Study | Doncaster | South Yorkshire
Published: 21 January 2016
Mr & Mrs Langfield had a relatively new 3 piece
bathroom suite given the average years between bathroom refurbishments
is around 10 years and it wasn’t that old. However due to a specific
condition affecting the legs the bath was becoming particularly
troublesome to get in and out of for 1 half of the couple. On the flip
side however the other user wanted the ability to have a shower so there
was a discussion to be had around an accessible bath / shower mixer or a
separate easy access bath and standalone shower solution, in essence,
turning the 3 piece suite into a 4.
Dawson, More Ability Surveyor & Designer, listened carefully to the
wants and needs of both Mr & Mrs Langfield to provide them with a
multi-purpose and all-encompassing solution. Firstly, due to the
underlying leg condition and the requirement to have a long hot soak to
ease movement, Nigel suggested an easy access bathing solution in the
format of a standardised bath with powered assisted rise and fall seat.
Secondly Nigel discussed the features, advantages and benefits of
incorporating a shower mixer in the bath solution or a separate
enclosure. A decision was made to go with the separate, low-level,
shower enclosure with a curved glass surround.
result of a combined, thoroughly discussed, bathroom refurbishment was
one of sheer magnitude. The once inaccessible and non-personalised 3
piece bathroom suite was transformed into a stylish and accessible bath
& shower solution that was not only easy on the eye but also solved
all the problems leading to the renovation. The new, striking white
& grey, 4 piece, fully tiled suite consisted of a low level shower
enclosure with curved glass screen, an easy access bath with powered
assisted rise and fall seat, new back to wall soft close WC and pedestal
basin with illuminated mirror.
