Anyone who knows me well (or follows my blog or Instagram) knows that I LOVE interiors chat. I frequently pour over Pinterest at all kinds of looks for the home, and enjoy a variety of styles. Whilst I’m no qualified interior designer, I think I’m quite good at working with a particular space and what’s there to make it look stylish-yet-homely, something I plan on doing more of in our new home as we won’t be able to do big building work for a few years, so I’m keen to make the most of what we have for the foreseeable. When Mobility Plus got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to work with them, I immediately said “yes please!”, as I thought it would be great to put together a mood board for a bathroom with a difference:
One that’s suitable for perhaps aging family members, or those with mobility issues.
Whilst we are fortunate at the moment that both sets of our parents are (touch wood) in good health and pretty active, you never know when that could change, and I (and I’m sure our folks would agree) that a practical bathroom as you get older doesn’t have to mean a less stylish one.
Mobility Plus have a range of fantastic walk in baths and showers, ideal for those who might need wheelchair access, or even simply to take away the need to step up to, or into, one.
My bathroom mood board here features a walk-in shower from the Richmond Range, which has a seat that can meet your own specific requirements. Mobility Plus can tailor any package on easy-access showers, making life that bit easier for those who need it. There is a no-door option for wheelchair access, and the shower ranges offer a fold away shower seat for extra added comfort, plus safety grab rails for peace of mind and that extra bit of support.
Designing a bathroom like this for a family member who needs it can be daunting, but it can still look good, and Mobility Plus are there every step of the way to give you advice.
As well as the walk-in shower, my mood board also features bold monochrome floor tiles, with pink and brass accents included in the pink vanity unit, tap and towels. The tiling behind the shower would be plain white subway tiles so the floor tiles really stand out.
And of course, a house plant or two for a bit of greenery!
What do you think?
Do you have a family member who needs access to an adapted bathroom? What do they have shower/bath-wise?
