When designing a new bathroom its ideal to think about the future and how you want to change. Nowadays bathrooms are evolving into all-inclusive, easy access and user-friendly schemes so the aim is to make it as comfortable as needed for the yourselves in the future.
As people get older the tasks that we have taken for granted become more difficult. So, climbing in the bath, standing in the shower or even turning on taps becomes harder to do. So take into account all the different factors; practical and easy-to-use solutions ensure long term access.
Recently, products have become much more design-led, which makes them more desirable in terms of looks and convenience. These include low-level and flush-fit shower trays and wetrooms and including sensor-operated mixer taps, high-tech WC’s and digital showers.
The older generation more recently desire the latest spa-style showers. A well designed future-proof shower will stand against the test of time and be majorly safe for all. Furthermore, both young and old generation alike are able to use them.
Digital showers are precision thermostatic, meaning they react faster to temperature fluctuations and safe for young and old generation alike. With no fiddly levers they are cool to touch. Similarly, some models come with a remote control that gives the opportunity to place at any. If you wish for a bath, consider a new walk-in bath, which now come with hydromassage, moulded headrests, comfortable seats and handrails.
Managing accessibility comes down to creating a multifunctional space that considers every requirement a user may have. Accessories can enhance your experience. Hence, adjustable mirrors and support rails can be tilted to suit everyone also are also essential in a well-designed bathroom, providing solidity for safety and grip for support.
Bathrooms need to have clear and precise planning. It’s important to get the most out of the design so the bathroom will still be functional and practical in the future, so it is really future-proof. Many trends nowadays (low-level shower trays, open plan showering) create longevity without compromising the aesthetic appeal.
If you have two bathrooms, removing a bath in favour of a walk-in shower room (when future-proofing), can drastically improve for the future. Shower seats and hand rails particularly assist most people who require the help to stand up or relax whist in the shower or bath.
