We have built many accessible bathrooms in Bendigo and each project needs to be custom-built to suit each individual client. At Bendigo Bathrooms we can be engaged directly to undertake your accessible bathroom renovation project or we are happy to collaborate with a builder, architect, occupational therapist or various other health professionals. We have a designer who can draw up a plan and provide samples of products and finishes suitable for your individual needs.
Ease of access to the bathroom is the first consideration. Our accessible bathroom renovations can improve accessibility by widening the entry into the room. Accessibility to the shower, toilet and vanity needs to be planned so a wheelchair or other aids and appliances can be manoeuvred within the room. Depending on the level of assistance the client might need, consideration also needs to be given to the fact that a carer might need to be in the same space at the same time.
The functionality of each of the accessible bathroom products and how they work together is vitally important. Moving between the vanity, toilet and shower area needs to be streamlined and a flat flooring area can aid movement. The functionality of each product on its own is another consideration. The heights of toilets, basins, tapware, niches, storage and mirrors all needed to be planned prior to starting the project and must meet Australian Standards AS1428-2009.
Accessible bathroom products & finishes
There is now a vast range of accessible bathroom products and finishes designed to meet Australian Standards. Our Bendigo bathroom design specialist has a good understanding of what is available and where to source the products. Functionality does not mean a lack of style – most accessible bathroom products now look as attractive as the most up-to-date architecturally designed products.
Finished accessible bathroom renovations
The wide variety of fittings and fixtures designed for accessible bathrooms is comparable with contemporary products. The design of most of our current Bendigo bathroom renovation projects is hard to differentiate from accessible bathrooms due to the current trend of open showers, in-situ shower bases, larger room sizes and wall-hung vanities. Finished accessible bathrooms can look as stunning as a designer bathroom.
We take a lot of pleasure building and renovating bathrooms for people with accessibility limitations. We enjoy seeing the delight on a client’s face with a brand new bathroom with new fixtures and fittings and we also know the renovation makes a huge difference to this person’s everyday life.
