Mobility Wet Room Case Study | Leeds | West Yorkshire

Published: 12 April 2019

Bathing Problem:

Mr Ashelford lived in a dormer bungalow that featured two bathrooms, one upstairs and one down. With deteriorating mobility issues the upstairs bathroom was problematic with regards to access, and as a result, no longer used.

The large downstairs bathroom, which consisted of a 4-piece suite made up of a bath, separate shower cubicle, a vanity basin and WC, was the primary bathing facility in the home. Although in good working order the bath was strictly out of bounds, leaving the small shower cubicle as the main means of washing, which was impractical and unsafe.

Bathing Solution:

Initially contacting an occupational therapist for bathing advice, Mr Ashelford started his journey to achieving a mobility bathroom by proceeding down a grant funded route. On a tender list for a number of local councils in the Yorkshire region, More Ability Surveyor and Designer, Nigel, visited Mr Ashelford to discuss his options from a council specification point of view.

After explaining what would happen and what his choices would be, Mr Ashelford wasn’t convinced the options available to him were want he wanted and with that asked Nigel to offer a private, domestic, alternative. Consisting of a full bathroom to mobility wet room adaptation, made up of Mr Ashelford personal preferences for all fixture choices and fittings, Nigel invited Mr Ashelford to our Leeds Mobility Bathroom Showroom to discuss the works in more detail and present a 3D visual design.

Installation Outcome:

A basic council adaptation was enhanced and transformed into a private domestic full bathroom to mobility wet room renovation. With OT approval the future proofed suite consisted of a spacious wet room with corian bench and riser rail, concealed behind a stylish glass screen. With a wall hung basin for access and a raised comfort height WC, the fully tiled mobility wet room featured anti-slip safety vinyl to the floor for added peace of mind.
