Take your bathroom to the next level with wheelchair showers
Are you looking into bathroom renovations to create a wheelchair accessible bathroom and a curbless shower system? If so, there are countless ways to make your accessible bathroom look elegant and satisfying to your taste and needs, like installing a wheelchair shower for example. An accessible washroom does not need to be only about functionality; it can be designed in the colour and style that you desire.
Your washroom is your private space and should be designed to your liking. There are countless colour and material combinations for you to choose from. Wheelchair showers can come in a modern style with greys, blues, and whites, and with stainless steel hardware. You could also ask for an antique style with beige tones and brass-coloured hardware. The flexibility in designing wheelchair showers is endless. Would you prefer large tiles all in the same colour, or smaller tiles in a varied colour scheme? These are some questions to consider when you consult with your contractor before doing your bathroom renovations. One stunning combination includes a raspberry red wall with a beautiful white shower and a pearly white sink.
To make your new bathroom accessible your contractor will suggest a curbless shower system to allow a walk-in shower. Wheelchair showers can come with a glass door and a reachable door handle. Alternatively, wheelchair showers can be designed with no door at all to allow a person in a wheelchair to roll in with no obstacles. In these designs, there is often a glass wall to prevent the water from splashing in the rest of your bathroom. The team taking care of your bathroom renovations will ensure the delivery of a shower system that is just right for you.
When performing bathroom renovations, there are several different ways to accommodate a bench or a chair inside a wheelchair shower. Your contractor can implement a bench out of stained wood or with the same ceramic tiles as the rest of the shower. They can also install a fold out chair that can be folded back up if you prefer to use a shower wheelchair.
Just like wheelchair showers, the storage area of your accessible bathroom can be made beautiful too. A wooden storage unit can be designed for you in light, medium, or dark wood, or with many other colours and materials. You could have a creamy white storage cabinet underneath or next to your sink, or a black storage cabinet with an automatic light that turns on whenever you open it.
