The cost of an accessible bathroom can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the size and layout of the bathroom, the age of the property, the condition of the existing pipework and plumbing, the materials and fixtures used, and any additional features, such as grab bars or shower seats.
However, the good news is AHM Installations can design and create bespoke mobility bathrooms to suit every budget.
You may want a walk-in bath because you prefer a bath to a shower or it may be the most suitable for your needs, in which case you can expect to pay more due to the cost of the bath. However, there are other ways to save money within the project by selecting only what else is needed within the bathroom and opting for mid-range priced sanitaryware and décor.
A cost-effective accessible bathroom could be in the form of a walk-in shower. We would remove any existing bath or high-level access shower and replace it with a low-level access shower with an anti-slip shower tray, and we’d add grab bars if required and a fixed drop-down shower seat, positioned so you can easily access the shower controls.
Another quick and easy update to the décor is to use shower panels – these are easier to clean than tiles because there is no grout and they are 100% waterproof and the designs and modern and stylish.
For wheelchair users, a wet room would be advisable because it eliminates the need for shower trays and increases the available space to manoeuvre a wheelchair. This would involve creating suitable drainage underneath the anti-slip flooring and this is what can increase costs due to adding additional pipework and plumbing required.
Whether it’s a wet room, walk-in shower or walk-bath. AHM Installations will always find a solution to suit any budget because we know the importance of being able to bathe safely and in comfort.
