If you or a relative has any kind of mobility issues, then you know how important it is to have a safe bathroom which can be used easily so as not to cause injury or discomfort. There are a wealth of safety products now in the market which can be installed in your bathroom to make life easier for those with mobility problems and quality bathroom designers in London can integrate them into your bathroom design to give you a bathroom which is not only safe but looks fantastic too.
Specialised bathroom designs
People who struggle with mobility problems often struggle to do simple things which we take for granted. That is why bathroom designers in London often turn to safety innovations to help make the bathroom a much more comfortable place to be. Special designs such as higher toilets and wash basins can be incorporated into your bathroom to make bending down less of an issue. Walk in baths may also be used in the design of a bathroom to make bathing safer for those who struggle to stand or lift their legs to climb into a bath. Bathroom designers in London who wish to create a bathroom that is safe also favour large open shower.
Smaller adjustments can be made by bathroom designers in London in order to make a bathroom safe. For example, grab rails can be installed next to the toilet, sink and bath to be used to help stand safely. The flooring tiles selected can also help to make a bathroom safer as certain tiles can become slightly slippery when wet if you are unstable on your feet. Wooden grates can be used in showers to combat slippery surfaces and reduce the risk of a fall.
Making the bathroom safe for all
It is not just those with mobility problems who may need a bathroom design to think about safety. Families with small children also will want to consider the safety of the bathroom. Children can often slip on tiles or in the bath and this will need to be combatted which non-slip surfaces and aids. You may also want to consider child-safe locks on bathroom cabinets to ensure that curious toddlers do not get their hands on dangerous cleaning supplies or other bathroom products. You may even want to consider child-safe locks on the toilet seat itself in case your child is prone to investigating the magic bowl of water.
