Mobility Wet Room Case Study | Hope Valley | Derbyshire
Published: 2 December 2021
Mrs Worthington’s large 4-piece bathroom consisted of a bath, walk-in shower, basin and WC.
No longer using the bath and wating a shower room that assisted with her mobility she hoped to install a level access showering solution.
Wanting to remove the unused bath within her bathroom but not knowing of the mobility bathroom options available Mrs Worthington visited our Leeds disabled bathroom showroom to gather further information.
Mrs Worthington was greeted by Senior Designer Garry who discussed with her the variety of shower solutions available that would allow her to safely and independently bathe without taking away from the shower rooms style.
Happy with the information gathered, Mrs Worthington booked a free design appointment for Garry to visit her home to survey her bathroom and further discuss her shower room requirements. During this time Garry also created a preliminary wet room design and a provisional quote for the renovation, dependant to Mrs Worthington’s final fixtures and fittings choices.
Happy to go ahead, Garry invited Mrs Worthington back to our Leeds showroom to present her with a visual CAD design helping her to envision the new look of her mobility wet room. He also assisted her with choosing the fixtures and fittings for the room.
Mobility Wet Room Installation:
A spacious wet room with a glass flipper and built in Corian bench, allowing Mrs Worthington to comfortably rest her legs whilst bathing was installed by Multi-Skilled Fitter Sam.
The unused bath was removed creating additional space in the already large room. Making use of the available space, a wall was built in the old walk-in shower area to create a contemporary walk-in wardrobe room that leads into Mrs Worthington’s bedroom.
Modern large light grey ceramic bathroom tiles and matching grey anti slip vinyl flooring was also installed adding to the contemporary feel of the wet room whilst providing additional safety.
The accessible bathroom design also included installation of a modern chrome grab bar to assist Mrs Worthington with mobility support.
Accessible sanitary ware included the installation of a space saving back to wall WC and large wall hung basin fitted in a contemporary wall hung vanity unit.
An impractical bathroom with unused bath was transformed into a spacious modern mobility wet room with additional safety features.
