Planning accessible showers
PLANNING ACCESSIBLE SHOWERS and disabled friendly bathrooms takes experience and understanding as all of our customer’s needs are different. We have more than 15 years experience in accessible shower design and find practical solutions that make life easier and safer for those with a disability. Sometimes it can be as simple as removing a bathtub and installing an easy access shower and on other occasions the work can be more extensive. There are many considerations when planning accessibility and safety in a bathroom, some of these include:
- What bathroom activities require a user to need assistance?
Every person has different needs and present and future requirements should be taken into account when designing an accessible shower or bathroom. Planning ahead ensures that if a person’s health should deteriorate the bathroom will still be suitable.
- Is wheelchair access required?
A shower without a lip is ideal for people using a wheelchair, walker or for someone who is at risk for falls and can be used by everyone regardless of ability.
- Sink and vanity access:
Wall mounted sinks and vanities are generally better suited for accessible showers and bathrooms particularly if a wheelchair needs to be accommodated.
- Placement of mirrors:
Mounting a lower placed mirror, extra long mirror, or tilt mirror that everyone can use is an important consideration.
- Is a bathtub or shower more suitable:
Some clients feel more comfortable using a tub than a shower and the bathroom design should take this into account. We find that we are often asked to remove a bathtub and install an accessible shower for clients with mobility issues.
Good lighting in the bathroom is important for safety and motion detecting lights can be used when access to switches is difficult.
