It is extremely important to think ahead to the future when planning a new bathroom. Users may become less mobile at some point, but not necessarily want to move home simply because the bathroom no longer meets their needs. An accessible bathroom is therefore the right solution and it doesn’t need to look like a hospital room. An attic is not particularly suitable for a new bathroom as the location poses too many obstacles. It must be possible to access the room easily using a walking frame or wheelchair. It is important to install wide doors to allow for this. A small bathroom of up to six square metres is less suitable for an accessible design than a significantly larger space.
