There are currently around 1.2 million wheelchair users in the United Kingdom, according to NHS England, with around 800,000 using their wheelchair on a regular basis.
With such a significant number of wheelchair users, it’s not surprising that many families are looking for accessible design solutions which strike a balance between style and function when renovating their homes.
Many people in the UK have some form of disability or issue which affects their day-to-day mobility. Whilst this can vary greatly in terms of severity, often certain adaptations will be required around the home to aid movement and accessibility. This enables a person to maintain a distinct independence through use of these adaptations.
In the bathroom, the most common independent living products are grab rails, fold down seats and wet rooms, along with many other products, which can provide an excellent environment for a person’s unique needs.
Although not always designed with this in mind, wet rooms are particularly good for those whose movement is restricted, such as the elderly or disabled. Wet rooms enable level access without the need for a shower tray, making access to the shower much easier.
A big advantage of installing a wet room is the ease at which it can be cleaned. As the environment is wet, everyday bathroom cleaners can be used right around the room to disinfect keeping the area clean and safe.
