Disabled Wet Room Case Study | Bradford | West Yorkshire
Published: 31 January 2019
Mr & Mrs Kay lived in a terraced house which featured a whisper grey 3-piece suite consisting of an over bath shower, pedestal basin and closed coupled WC. Half tiled in complimentary grey and carpeted throughout the existing bathroom was a troublesome area due to the difficulty when getting in and out of the bath.
With a few minor DIY adaptations consisting of the odd grab bar and a toilet frame already in situ the time had come to consider completely adapting the bathroom to facilitate a safer bathing experience, that one day may have to become assisted.
Having initially visited our mobility bathroom showroom in Leeds both Mr & Mrs Kay, and their daughter who had traveled from the midlands, were more than pleased with what they saw and happily progressed to the next stage, arranging a home survey, consultation and quote with More Ability Surveyor & Designer, Andy.
With no preconceptions or design requirements it was left to Andy to create a suitable solution based on discussions with Mr & Mrs Kay’s daughter. Due to concerns over how long her parents independence would continue in the bathroom a decision was made to completely future proof the adaptation, offering a solution which could facilitate assisted bathing if or when the time required.
An unsafe and unusable bathroom was transformed into a disabled wet room with minimal design requirements due to minor alterations to the layout. Featuring a suitably sized showering area, which was concealed behind half height shower doors for assisted washing, the rest of the room was updated to include a raised height WC with drop down rail and a sunken vanity basin unit. Fully wall boarded to give it a light, clean and maintenance free look, anti-slip vinyl was applied to the floor with new doors hung to conceal the intruding airing cupboard.
