We specialise in disabled friendly bathrooms. From bathroom modifications, like installing a disabled toilet, to complete bathroom renovations, and of course new aged care bathrooms, Style Bathrooms has the expertise to meet your specific disability needs.
The following are some factors we always pay attention to:
The floor plan should suggest same level bathroom entrance – no steps or similar obstacles. The entrance should be accessible for people with a wheelchair and should be wide enough for comfortable entrance and exit. It is ideal if the entrance is 36 inches or more. If privacy is not an issue, the entrance can be designed with a sliding door or curtain. However, if you still want to go with the traditional door, make sure it can be unlocked from the outside.
Walk-in showers or walk-in tubs are the best for disabled people. In fact, some bathroom floor plans can include a roll-in shower. This allows disabled people in wheelchairs to directly enter the shower. In case you want to go with that option, make sure the wheelchair is designed accordingly and is made from water-friendly and stainless material.
It is ideal for bathroom plans designed for disabled people to have higher toilet seats because that gives them easy access. The best height is 18 inches. You can also consider installing grab handless on the sides of the toilet seat for additional assistance.
