Design a stylish bathroom that will suit your changing needs
Creating a bathroom that looks beautiful has never been easier. Before you start, it is worth remembering that the most successful designs not only deliver on looks but satisfy your practical needs too. A bathroom is often shared by the whole family, so it is important to consider everyone’s individual requirements – not just for now, but for the future too.
Whether you are planning on spending your later years in the same property or perhaps welcoming an elderly family member into your home, making sure the bathroom is a place that everyone can use in comfort and safety is key. Bathroom makeovers needn’t be complicated. Sometimes all it takes are a few simple modifications to allow the space to be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age or accessibility constraints.
So what decisions can you make now that will ‘future-proof ’ your bathroom without compromising on style? Subtle details, such as the ‘comfort-height’ toilet that boasts a slightly higher design for ease of use, is available in sleek and contemporary styling.
To make bathing and showering easier, baths have been redesigned with a door and low entry step for easy access, enabling everyone to enjoy the health benefits of a soak in a bath.
A walk-in shower enclosure can be used with or without a tray, creating step-free access with a wet-room solution that is both practical and stylish. A clever anti-slip tray, low-slip tiles, Thermostatic shower valve and classic chrome safety rails with integrated accessories such as trays, towel and toilet roll holders complete the future-proofing. Offset the look with contemporary tap designs and you can combine practical solutions with a dash of modern glamour.
The stylish bathing sanctuary you plan today will most certainly deliver on design well into the future.
