Typically the smallest room in the house, bathrooms can be incredibly difficult to navigate, particularly if you suffer from reduced or impaired mobility. The trick to ensuring that you can move around your bathroom in a safe and comfortable manner is twofold;
- Ensure that you optimise your bathroom design for its space. With intelligent design, you can capitalise on every single inch which will be a huge benefit to your overall design.
- Take advantage of the wide range of features which are available which can optimise your space for your mobility, including handrails, non-slip mats and bath lifts for the elderly or walk-in showers.
Intelligent Use Of Space
When it comes to small bathrooms, you need to ensure that you are making the most of the space that you do have available, however limited. The first step is taking into consideration what you actually need in your bathroom – anything that you could leave out, do so. This can include things like aftershave and perfume, and remembering to remove empty bottles such as used shampoo and conditioner.
When it comes to storage, as well, consider vertical solutions rather than horizontal drawers. Build upwards and take advantage of all unused space. If you choose shelves, you can often result in a bathroom which feels cluttered – alternatively, cupboards are more likely to protrude further into the available space, making your bathroom seem even smaller.
Power-assisted baths can often take up a great deal of space and, whilst walk-in baths are available which feature inwards opening doors, many people still prefer the traditional form of bathtub, or would rather avoid a complete bathroom refurbishment to meet their new mobility requirements.
Bath lifts for the elderly are one of the quickest, easiest and cheapest ways to improve the accessibility of a bathroom. There are a wide range of bath lifts for the elderly available, here at Bathtime Mobility. Some models can be attached to the nearby wall and easily retracted to allow easy access to the bathtub for other users. This means that, even in a household with multiple people, the bath lift is a suitable accessory.
