I was required to turn an old downstairs toilet and adjoining garage into a walk-in showroom and toilet with utility room.
The key requirement was for the shower and toilet to be disabled friendly.
I ACHIEVED THIS BY
Researching disabled requirements. I designed a walk-in in shower featuring a non slip tray. It was also important that the shower could accommodate a carer as well. Other features included a basin usable in a wheelchair and toilet situated at a height for disabled use. The design featured high end sanitary ware that created a designer bathroom, enhanced by warm coloured tiles.
WHAT THE CLIENT SAID
“My husband is disabled. I needed to plan for the future and felt it was time to instal a downstairs shower room before it was required.
“Alison showed a lot of attention to detail in designing the room. She considered what would be required in the future - a seat in the shower; rails; and a high level toilet.
“Everyone, including the builders, has commented that that it does not look like a shower room for a disabled person. Everything is very discreet.
“At the same time we installed a utility room and again the same care and attention to detail was shown.
“The finished room is very practical, beautifully designed, and makes life so much easier in caring for my husband.”
