Things to Know About Accessible Bathrooms

When you have a disability or are just hoping to make your bathroom a little safer for people of all ages, planning a bathroom remodel can be overwhelming. You have to think about how to make your bathroom safe and accessible while still stylish.

There are a few things you should know about accessible bathrooms before you start your remodel; first, you need to decide what type of bathroom you need.

There are three types of accessible bathrooms:

1. Transfer

This type of bathroom is designed for people who use a wheelchair or have difficulty transferring from their wheelchair to the toilet. The bathroom will have a 5 turning radius and grab bars near the toilet and shower.

2. Rollin

This type of bathroom is designed for people who use a wheelchair or have difficulty transferring from their wheelchair to the toilet. The bathroom will have a 5 turning radius and a rollin shower.

3. Barrierfree

This type of bathroom is designed for people who have difficulty transferring from their wheelchair to the toilet. The bathroom will have a 5 turning radius and grab bars near the toilet and shower.

Once you know what type of bathroom you need, start thinking about the layout. The layout of your bathroom should allow for easy access to all of the fixtures. 

After you have decided on the type of bathroom you need and the layout, you need to start thinking about the fixtures and ensure that all of the fixtures will be accessible. This includes the sink, toilet, shower, and bathtub. Also, keep in mind the fixture height – do they make sense for your needs?
