Reasons To Update Your Bathroom
Bathroom trends come and go and your bathroom that was installed, what may seem only a few years ago, may suddenly be out of fashion.
Recent product design and innovation have made way for a multitude of bathroom design options – such as a vast range of tile textures and sizes, mood and energy-efficient lighting, remote control features and a plethora of shower cubicle designs and showering options. Whatever your reasons for updating your bathroom we are happy to work with you to help you achieve your dream bathroom.
Adaptmyhome are happy to meet with you to discuss how we can work with your existing bathroom to make it more accessible. It doesn’t have to be done in one go, we’d be happy to install bathroom aids, such as grab rails and bathing aids, as and when you need them to be installed.
When we design your bathroom, we’ll discuss options on how to make it future proof. Simple things like the style and position of your toilet, the type of shower tray, door and shower opening widths or where grab rails will need to be placed, can make a big difference later on when bathroom aids are required. A careful, sensible design approach means that future aids can be installed without having to make further alterations to your bathroom, meaning reduced disruption and cost further down the line.
Adaptmyhome are happy to meet with you to discuss how we can work with your existing bathroom to make it safer and more accessible to you.
We can supply and install simple aids that will improve accessibility and safety such as grab rails or a shower seat. If you want to make changes but don’t want to completely overhaul your existing bathroom, that’s no problem, we have a range of bathroom solutions that can be installed with minimum fuss. For example, we can replace your bath with a walk-in bath or a walk-in shower cubicle – complete with grab rails and shower seating. These bathroom products can be installed without having to alter the rest of your bathroom.
Whatever your needs, Adapatymome can find a bathroom solution to help make life easier. From simple aids such as grab rails, a specialist bath, an overhead hoist or a new extension to create a specialist bathroom, we are here to work with you and explore your options.

Wetrooms are becoming increasingly popular; not only do they add a touch of style to your home, but they can also be a practical choice for adding improved accessibility to the shower plus creating extra room for assisted bathing.
You don’t need a large bathroom space to create a wet room. To find out more about wet room options, visit our wet room page.
A wetroom is a type of bathroom that has a completely waterproofed and drained floor, which allows the entire room to be used as a shower area. Wetrooms are often designed to be wheelchair accessible, and they can be a good option for people with mobility challenges or disabilities. Wetrooms are also becoming increasingly popular as a design choice for people who want a modern, minimalist look in their bathroom.
In a wetroom, the shower area is typically separated from the rest of the room by a glass panel or screen, and the entire floor is sloped towards a drain. Water from the shower is collected in the drain and carried away through a plumbing system, which helps to prevent water from accumulating on the floor. Wetrooms can be fitted with a range of showering options, including overhead showers, handheld showers, and body jets. They may also include features like grab bars, seating, and non-slip flooring to make them safer and more accessible for people with mobility challenges. Wetrooms can be more expensive to install than traditional bathrooms, as they require specialized waterproofing and drainage systems, but they can be a good choice for people who want a functional and stylish bathroom that is easy to maintain.
