You might be wondering what an accessible bathroom is, and you wouldn’t be alone. An accessible bathroom is one that has been altered to better accommodate a person with disabilities. The term “accessible bathroom” is much preferred to “disabled bathroom”, as a bathroom cannot be disabled, and with a few amendments, you can make any bathroom an accessible one,
- Non-Slip Flooring –One of the most dangerous factors for a disabled person using the bathroom is slipping on a wet floor, so for that reason, a special non-slip floor can be installed. It can be a challenge for an able-bodied person to negotiate a wet bathroom floor, let alone someone with mobility issues.
- Installing Handrails – This is an essential addition, as people with disabilities require a solid anchor point to either raise or lower themselves, and the handrails would be fitted in the right locations for convenient use.
- Walk in Showers and Baths– These can be designed and built by a specialist firm with expert disabled access adaptations in Bristol, and they are able to design the accessible bathroom to perfectly suit the occupant.
There is a lot that can be modified in a bathroom to make it more accessible for people with mobility issues, and by talking to a specialist company who have a wealth of experience, it is possible to make like mush easier and safer for disabled people.
