Ms Cummings had an existing single storey extension that housed a DIY adapted bathroom which featured a bath, pedestal basin, WC with raised toilet frame and a number of well-placed supporting grab bars. Fully tiled to the floor and wall, aside from over the basin and WC, the existing suite was long and narrow and needed addressing from an accessibility point of view.
Having visited our Leeds Showroom in the first instance for preliminary help and advice, Ms Cummings felt comfortable and confident in our capabilities and portfolio of solutions that she subsequently booked a home survey, design and quote appointment.
With accessibility, independence and peace of mind at the heart of the adaptation works, More Ability Surveyor & Designer, Nigel, met Ms Cummings on site to discuss her requirements in more detail. Following an initial measure of the existing suite, while keeping the customers wants and needs at the forefront of his mind, Nigel proposed widening the doorway for access and changing the layout of the room for ease of use while creating necessary space.
Catering for all present bathing requirements and future-proofed in case of any deterioration, the disabled wet room was a structurally challenging renovation that conclusively met all the customers’ requirements and more besides.
Helping with final choices resulted in key fixtures being replaced with mobility friendly concepts in the form of an accessible basin and comfort height WC. Slip resistant vinyl was used on the floor for additional safety and no grout wall-boards were also used for a hassle free maintenance.
“Excellent, professional finish. Our fitter, Steve, was hardworking, polite, punctual and tidy. Finished ahead of schedule. Extremely happy.”
