There has been a departure from traditional institutional styles of accessible bathing solutions in the self-funded domestic market in recent years.
That’s according to wet room specialist Impey which claims that bathroom adaptations funded by a DFG are appearing to be different to those in the private-funded sector.
The firm says that specifiers and users now realise that accessible bathrooms can be stylish, as well as functional.
Tiled level access wet rooms have remained desirable and the use of chrome grab bars and attractive fold-away shower seating is increasing, said the company.
“Across the board, specifiers are keen adopters of new technology; incorporating products which demonstrate improved functionality and improve performance of accessible wetrooms and shower spaces,” comments Richard Knox, national sales manager.
He continued to explain that Impey is seeing a trend for bath replacement shower trays escalating, as is the desire for slimmer shower trays.
