More Ability expands into Harrogate Showroom.

Mr & Mrs Smith, Kippax, Leeds, West Yorkshire – a two room renovation project whereby accessibility, space and a consistent design were key.

16 July 2018

Problem:

Mr and Mrs Smith had a separate WC and Bathroom which neighboured one another in the family home. Small in size and dated in design, Mr & Mrs Smith expressed how they wanted to “utilise the available space in both rooms more effectively’’ while creating future proofed solution.

To help give the illusion of space, and to make the suite easily accessible, the bath would be removed allowing for the creation of an accessible wet floor shower. The WC would be kept separate with a consistent design applied across both rooms.


Solution:

More Ability Surveyor & Designer Garry, met the couple on site to discuss their wants, needs and bathing requirements in more detail. In order to achieve their main aims of accessibility and space the bath would have to be removed which would offer the required room for an accessible wet floor shower to be constructed. The featured basin unit would be replaced with a more modern design whereby the furniture would match the bathrooms strikingly modern, white and grey, colour scheme.

The bathroom walls were be a mixture of tiles and glacier sparkle wall boards in the shower area, which are typically easier to maintain and clean as a result of the ‘no grout’ requirement. The fixtures, fittings and finishing touches were to be consistent in the separate WC offering a constant modern design across both wash room facilities.

Outcome:

The finished accessible bathroom renovation and WC refurbishment was a stylish and safe alternative on what could be a traditionally looking mobility suite. The future proofed design achieved all the couple’s requirements which focused mainly on making the best use of the available space and achieving a safe and accessible design. With slip resistant vinyl to the floors and matching basin units in both wash rooms the bright and light glacier white wall coverings contrasted perfectly with the dark grey flooring, offering a clean and modern look and feel.
