Accessible Easy Access Bath Case Study | Leeds | West Yorkshire
Published: 14 July 2017
Ms Hurst’s existing bathroom was indeed of a thoughtfully planned, modern refurbishment that not only met future needs & requirements but did so in a stylish & practical manner. Consisting of a mid-late 80’s misty grey suite the existing bathroom was fully tiled with a decorative off white spot display and finished with mosaic effect vinyl to the floor.
Ms Hurst was a lady who knew what she wanted. Having met More Ability Surveyor & Designer, Paul, on site it soon became clear what the provisions of the project were. Although not the most practical solution Ms Hurst loved a bath, to the point the thought of removing it to replace for a shower was not even a consideration.
Although able on her feet right here and now Ms Hurst was under no illusion that it was likely, at some point, she would have no option but have to shower rather than bathe, to the point it may even become assisted. Baring that in mind Paul worked with Ms Hurst to design and create a solution that was suitable for now, in terms of needs and desires, and met any and all future demands and provisions.
A dated and storage lacking bathroom was transformed into a thoughtfully planned, modern and practical refurbishment. Consisting of a full length, wall and base fitted vanity unit, which housed the WC and basin, provided the ample storage that was required to keep everything tidy and out the way.
Furthermore a beloved low level bath concept was installed whereby Paul and Ms Hurst had come to a compromise on. Giving her was she wanted for now, Paul proposed the idea of pre-planning the next phase of the works and installing the technical requirements for a wet floor shower underneath the bath. This was plumbed in and drained during the installation meaning as and when the time came the bath could be easily removed and a safe & accessible wet floor shower would already be in place; making the conversion process, when required, efficient, hassle free and cost effective.
what ms hurst said about more ability:
“Very impressed with Joe our fitter
and Paul our designer”.
