Disabled Wet Room | Rotherham | More Ability
Published: 9 September 2022
Mr & Mrs. Bennett’s existing downstairs shower room was no longer fit for purpose due to ongoing issues with deteriorating mobility. Wanting to maximise the available space, while ensuring it was suitable for wheelchair use, the couple wanted to explore their options for converting the existing space into a disabled wet room; to ensure increased safety and complete peace of mind while maintaining bathing independence.
Mr. Bennett started to browse the internet to see which company could provide the best possible solution and deliver the works for his new disabled wet room. Mr. Bennett came across More Ability via the internet, and he was confident that we could deliver the works. He then proceeded to book a free design appointment, for a Senior Designer to visit their home and take them through the process of purchasing a new wet room.
Mr. Bennett was visited by our Senior Designer Simon, who surveyed the existing shower room, then sat with Mr. Bennett and his family to discuss with them their wants, needs, and requirements. Through consultation, the main requirement was to install a wheelchair-accessible disabled wet room with a seat, accompanied by additional accessible features. The overall design, in terms of colour, formed part of the discussion; however, Mr. Bennett was open to ideas as long as it was made to suit his needs.
Taking all this into consideration Simon used his expert knowledge in design and created an illustration of how the new disabled wet room would look and was able to provide them with a detailed quote for the works.
Happy with the process so far, and with eagerness and enthusiasm to proceed, the next step of the process was for the family to be presented with detailed CAD visuals, which would give them a chance to make any final changes to the design.
Happy with what Simon had put together, and with no amends to the design, they went through all final fixture choices for the disabled wet room finish and proceeded to place an order with us.
Disabled Wet Room Installation
Mr. Bennett’s unsuitable downstairs shower room was completely transformed and replaced with a future-proof disabled wet room, installed by our multi-skilled fitter Mohammed.
The existing shower was taken out and replaced by a wheelchair-accessible disabled wet room along with several accessible bathroom design features including grab rails and a fixed padded chair. The new wet room shower installation was finished off by having a glass flipper door, to increase safety and keep the water concealed.
Providing flexibility for all users a dual head shower system was installed on the beige accessible wallboards with complimentary beige anti-vinyl flooring laid across the entire wet room, for extra safety, and also as it is low maintenance and easy to clean. With regards to accessible sanity ware, a white corner wall-hung basin was fitted, maximising the available space while offering improved accessibility and sit-down use. A comfortable height toilet was fitted matching the basin and wall-hung towel rail radiator.
As part of the new disabled wet room installation, the door was widened to allow access to Mr. Bennett’s wheelchair to come in and out of the shower room.
A dated and unsuitable shower room with temporary accessible features was transformed into a wheelchair-accessible Disabled Wet Room with additional accessible bathroom design features.
I am incredibly happy with the bathroom. The workman (Kazi) was conscious to our specific needs relating to disability and helped us tremendously.
