The hi-tech Tact shower, for example, features an iPhone app for remote control, LED display with raised, illuminated, tactile push-button controls making it ideal for anyone with a visual impairment. In fact, it has been approved as such by the RNIB.Similarly, wall hung sanitaryware and basin units can have all the visual appeal of a contemporary state of the art bathroom, but can be mounted at a comfortable height for easy use by elderly family members including wheelchair users. Designs with softly rounded contours that are a safe and stylish alternative to sharp corners are ideal for both young children and older adults.
Nature provides the inspiration for a calm, tranquil environment with natural textures and green tones in this sophisticated but minimalist spa-style bathroom. Wall hung cupboards can be fixed at a height to suit individual needs, and they not only add a contemporary design statement but minimise any obstructions to easy movement around the bathroom.
