Care Wet Rooms

AKW Care wet rooms Considerations when installing a Care Wet room It is always important to remember that accessibility is relative to each user; meaning that what may be deemed as accessible to one individual, may not be for another. Therefore, when offering wet room solutions to people in their bathrooms, remember to carry out a full evaluation to establish the exact constraints of the user and their home, to enable the best possible solution. One of the most popular questions asked is, “which is the best option for a shower floor? A wet room former or a shower tray?” The answer is both! However, there are important factors to consider before deciding. These are needs, cost, change, environment and if there are going to be any secondary users. As well as choosing the correct flooring, it is equally as important to decide upon the most effective accessories for the user. Grab rails and shower seats for example, are widely seen as accessible, however this is not necessarily the case. When installing any accessories into a care wet room, you need to consider all factors (previously stated) and finalise these with a visiting surveyor who will establish the best way for the items to be installed. This will include details like positioning, as well as design according to the individuals’ personal preference and taste. Accessible wet room products, like AKW’s, can have a huge impact on people’s lives, by promoting independence and generally improving people’s quality of life. However, what is as vital to the process as the quality products is the planning, design and implementation of the adaptation. It’s British design at its best and comes with a lifetime guarantee. That’s why we’re the trades first choice when it comes to style and installation. Beautiful, accessible and affordable!
