Fortunately this doesn’t have to mean a compromise on style. The secret is to introduce cleverly designed pieces that serve a specific function and look beautiful too. Often a product that is well suited to a less mobile grandparent is ideal for the younger members of the family as well. And products that are designed with the limitations of both in mind are the key to creating a bathing space that makes everyone happy.
A walk-in shower that provides easier access for granny, for example, can be recessed to the ideal height for parents bathing toddlers and young children. Likewise, a low slip tiled floor option means that elderly grandparents and boisterous toddlers are all equally catered for when it comes to safety in a wet environment. Choose a design that is bold and contemporary and you will please the style conscious members of the family too.Leading UK retailers such as bathstore now offer the Easy Bathing range, thoughtful designs specifically intended to put safety and accessibility as high up on the agenda as contemporary style and aesthetics.
Freestanding tubs are a staple for modern bathroom designs. Balance is key, so keep things symmetrical and sharp by strategically placing your tub in a spot that enhances the feng shui of your bathroom. Traditionally bathtubs are the familiar oval shape, however give a rectangular or pedestal tub a try.
Modern interior design came about as a reaction to the ornate and almost baroque styles that came before it. As such, the main focus of this school of design is to act as the antithesis of of those other looks. Rather than having lots of details and embellishments, modern furniture relies on clean lines and stark contrasts.
