Wheelchair Accessible Bathrooms

July 13, 2017

Will you or a loved one be confined to a wheelchair for an extended period of time? Then maybe you should consider remodeling your bathroom to incorporate more wheelchair accessible features. Normal bathrooms have obstacles which make navigating the bathroom very difficult for the wheelchair-bound. Remodeling this space can make it much easier for a wheelchair user to clean up and clean off.

Wheelchair Accessible Bathrooms

Bathroom Remodeling for Wheelchairs

With any bathroom remodeling project, the goal is to improve the space to make it more functional for the client’s daily lives. When it comes to bathrooms for wheelchair users, things can get a little tricky. For this reason, it’s a good idea to contract with an experienced bathroom remodeling company with a focus in handicap bathrooms. They’ll be able to show you what improvements can be made to the bathroom to make every aspect more accessible for wheelchair users.

Improving Floor Space

When it comes to handicap bathrooms, it’s not just about installing grab bars and a new toilet. For a wheelchair user, the first consideration should be increased floor space to offer more clearance to navigate. This can be done by moving bathroom features around, reclaiming closets, and providing clearance under the sink.

Better Storage areas

In addition to improving floor space, smarter storage will help make the bathroom more accessible as well. Shelving and cabinets at a lower height allow easier access for the wheelchair-bound. Typically, when remodeling a bathroom for wheelchair access, minimalism is the ideal approach especially concerning storage areas as it will allow us to maximize floor space.

Wheelchair Accessible Showers

A wheelchair accessible shower is one that makes it a lot easier for the wheelchair bound to clean off. The most common wheelchair accessible shower design will be a curbless shower model. Wheelchair accessible showers also commonly incorporate grab bars and a hand-held shower head. The final consideration will be what types of transfer aids and seating will be used in the shower.
