When someone has any special access requirements, the bathroom has to be designed accordingly to provide access and comfort to those users. Certain aspects have to be considered to ensure the space has easy access for any impaired person, and most often these changes can be made quickly.

Making your bathroom more accessible:
• Put in place a wider door and expand the door opening
• Place grab bars in the shower, next to the toilet, and vanity
• Make sure the shower has a removable hand head with a long hose
• Adjust the height of the toilet
• Install a wall-mounted sink
• Use a wall-mounted toilet of 17-19 inches

People in wheelchairs and those with mobility disabilities usually have problems using a regular bathtub.  In these cases, a curbless shower stall sorts these limitations out. Making sure the walk-in shower is large enough to accommodate a wheelchair or a shower chair, is something to be kept in mind when renovating your bathroom. A built-in bench may be also helpful for those who rather sit while taking a shower.

Should the disabled person prefer a tub, you may choose a walk-in bathtub. Walk-in tubs allow those who cannot step over a standard bathtub apron to still have the chance of enjoying it. A door that opens to the floor may facilitate mobility for disabled users. There are also other options such as a low threshold, and other elements such as handheld showerheads and a range of therapeutic massage jets.

Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Renovations

Making small improvements can make a big difference as people with mobility limitations can find it challenging to use bathroom facilities designed for people with sound mobility. Small changes can make bathrooms more accessible, practical, and comfortable for older people or people that live with a disability.

 

The following are a few bathroom remodeling changes that can be made:

Add a walk-in bathtub: this is a nice addition as a regular bathtub has high edges, which are very difficult for mobility challenged people to make use of.

Walk-in shower: also known as roll-in shower, curbless shower, no-threshold shower, wheelchair accessible shower, or barrier-free shower. For extra practicality and support, install a shower bench or shower seat.

You can consider installing handrails or grab rails to add extra support and mobility. It will make life in the bathroom easier and much safer. There are a variety of options available to choose from.

Ensure there is adequate open space to allow room for movement. An accessible bathroom needs to have enough space available to allow for a wheelchair to turn around and allow for enough room for transfers, as per the ADA guidelines.

ADA recommended toilet height: you can install risers if bending or rising presents a challenge. Risers can be purchased at around $50 or less and they are usually available at a home improvement store in most areas.

Roll under vanity: this can make a considerable difference to a wheelchair user and makes it so much easier to have access to the bathroom sink and mirror. With no cabinet obstructing the wheelchair, the user has easy access to the sink.

Hands Free or single lever-handle faucets: we recommend the installation of a single-handle faucet or hands free faucet. A single lever that can operate the water flow or a sensor that will turn the water on and off will make things easier.

These changes are all intended to aid in a wheelchair accessible bathroom design, allowing for extra independence and safety.
