Optimising Your Space for Safer Bathing 

When it comes to home design, your bathroom is a crucial thread that weaves together comfort, functionality, and style. At Safer Bathing Experts, we understand that every square inch counts, especially in UK homes where bathroom sizes can vary dramatically. Our guide is crafted to guide you through optimising your bathroom, no matter its size, with a focus on enhancing accessibility and mobility.

Navigating the Average UK Bathroom Size

Typically, a UK bathroom measures about 2 metres by 2 metres, similar to the dimensions of a family bathroom. Yet, there’s a whole spectrum of sizes out there. At Safer Bathing Experts, we believe in the power of personalised design to make any space, whether it’s a snug ensuite or a generous master bathroom, both functional and inviting.

Solutions for Small Bathrooms

In many terraced homes and flats, small bathrooms are the norm, featuring essentials like a toilet, sink, and combined bath-shower. The art here is to craft a space that feels open and uncluttered while remaining fully functional.

Adapting for mobility:

  • Our space-efficient bathtubs are designed with walk-in doors, making them a perfect fit for smaller bathrooms, without sacrificing comfort.
  • Choose from our range of sleek, minimalist toilets that not only save space but also offer easy accessibility.
  • Fit large, ergonomically designed taps that are a breeze to use, ensuring comfort and independence for individuals with limited hand mobility.

Crafting Cloakroom Bathrooms

Commonly found on the ground floor, cloakroom bathrooms are compact spaces with just a toilet and sink. These high-traffic areas deserve thoughtful design to make them accessible and easy to use.

Adapting for mobility:

  • Our slimline toilets are not just space-savers; they’re designed with easy-to-use flush mechanisms like buttons or automatic systems, perfect for those with mobility concerns.
  • Consider our lift taps, which operate with a simple lift, making them ideal for users with joint pain or limited hand strength.

Elevating Ensuite Bathrooms

Ensuite bathrooms offer the utmost convenience, typically housing a shower and toilet. The key to maximising these spaces lies in intelligent design that opens up the area and ensures unimpeded movement.

Adapting for mobility:

  • Our stylish corner showers fit snugly into ensuites, offering a spacious and comfortable showering experience without dominating the room.
  • Transform your ensuite into a practical wet room with our solutions, featuring level floors and efficient drainage for a safe, step-free showering environment.

Embracing the Luxury of Master Bathrooms

Master bathrooms are the crown jewels of home luxury, offering vast space for separate tubs, showers, and abundant storage. While they offer plenty of room, it’s essential to ensure they’re also safe and accessible.

Adapting for mobility:

  • Convert your space into a deluxe wet room, providing easy access and a seamless showering experience, especially beneficial for wheelchair users.
  • Our full-length walk-in baths come with thoughtful features like deep doors, armrests, and slip-resistant bases for a truly relaxing and safe bathing experience.
  • Strategically placed grab rails and slip-proof mats are part of our commitment to making your master bathroom a safe haven.

Tailoring Family Bathrooms

Family bathrooms must cater to the needs of all family members, ensuring safety and ease of use for all ages and abilities.

Adapting for mobility:

  • Our walk-in showers are designed to be universally accessible, providing comfort and safety for every family member.
  • Choose shower trays designed for efficient water drainage, minimising the risk of slips and falls, available in various sizes to fit your specific bathroom layout.
