Mr & Mrs Ryan had a small shower room which featured a corner enclosure with a high step which was the main focal point of the refurbishment as both struggled getting in and out due to old age and Mr having underlying health conditions. The rest of the suite was busy and dated, featuring a low rise WC and pedestal basin with pictured tiles to key areas of the wall and vinyl to the floor. Although in fully working order the existing suite was not functionally and required some thoughtful design tweaks to meet all the users wants, needs & desires.
Mr & Mrs Ryan spoke in depth with More Ability Surveyor & Designer Garry Kirkbright and between them were able to come up the perfect solution. Making it clear from the start the couple wanted a shower room that much easier on the eye but most importantly, functional, safe and easier to use Garry proposed a safe & practical wet room that, with the addition of several key features, would be as stylish as it was safe.
The stylish finishing touches not only helped accentuate the overall look and feel of the modernised wet room but also made it even safer to use. By incorporating a glass flipper screen which half enclosed the showering area, several chrome grab rails and a chrome towel radiator the refurbished suite was a perfect blend of style and function.
Garry also designed the suite to house a modernised pedestal basin as well as a back to wall, closed couple WC and incorporated striking white wall boards to the shower area, half tiled the remaining walls and covered the floor in a soft grey slip resistant vinyl.
“I would like to say that Garry Kirkbright was very kind and patient when I changed my mind thinking I couldn’t cope with the upheaval involved with the work. I then decided to go ahead and Garry was not pushy at all – he even gave me a lift to the hospital to see my husband when he knew how stressed out I was.”
