The life of someone that faces issues with their mobility can be a challenging one. What appears to be mundane tasks to some, such as going to the toilet or washing themselves, can provide a real dilemma for others. It is for this reason that many disabled people are opting to convert their ordinary bathrooms into wet rooms. For many years, the team here at ISB Mobility have been completing these conversions, and we are pleased to explain why we think they are an excellent choice.
This is a point which cannot be stressed enough, and the primary factor as to why the popularity of wet rooms have skyrocketed. The extra wide area for which individuals are able to bathe in, along with the rails installed within the shower and alongside the toilet, mean that there are a number of support frames to be utilised.
One of the reasons which carers are brought in for, is to assist with such duties as washing and cleaning. This responsibility can be partly negated through the installation of a wet room. Whereas a standard toilet is practically unusable for those with physical disabilities, a grab rail means that maneuverability is enhanced. Similarly, a folding shower chair means that no longer does the individual need to be supported.
Optimises Space Usage
If you are someone who does not have a particularly large bathroom, and you are seeking to make the most of the space available to you, we would advise that you consider switching to a wet room. By taking out, for example, a bath which does not see much use, and replacing it with a shower equipped with a shower seat, you will be able to reap the rewards of an open-plan layout.
Whilst this may appear to be an afterthought, it is a factor which should not be overlooked. When you obtain a wet room, you have the opportunity to minimise the amount of effort required to clean; this is due to the smooth tiling used to adorn the wall, combined with the open drainage basin.
