A fresh blue and white coastal colour scheme is the ideal backdrop for products with nautical vibes such as contoured sanitaryware and cupboards and ship’s ladder style towel rails. Here a bold geometric tile serves as a visual reference to the points on a compass, and a space-saving, walk-in “harbour” bath has been incorporated for safe, easy bathing for everyone.
Even taps have had a makeover and extended lever handle versions not only look beautiful but are also designed to be easy to turn off for those young and old whose grip or dexterity may be limited. All in all, it means you can have a bathroom that looks a million dollars and is safe for everyone to use, be they five or 85.
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.
