With age comes experience – unfortunately it also tends to come with a loss of mobility – and that’s when a traditional bathroom can become more awkward to use.

There are so many ways to create a glorious bathroom, which looks stylish but is also accessible and will once again make your bathing routine a pleasure and not a chore.

But it can seem a huge task to consider and choose the right products and design for you and your needs – and that’s where the expertise of the Bathing Mobility Advisory Service (BMAS) comes in.

Taking advantage of a free BMAS home visit is the first step to making your bathroom a safer, more accessible and more enjoyable place to be.

But it’s not just about having a more enjoyable experience, having a fully accessible bathroom means having a safer home and limiting the risk of accidents and injuries. And, if you have a relative or carer to help you with bathing, then having the space for them to access the bathroom and be able to help you is another important thing to think about.

According to the NHS, falls are the most common cause of accidents in the home, with bathrooms being a particular danger zone. Bathrooms get a lot of use in any home and usually when they are installed, safety, mobility and ageing are not the key considerations. But as time goes on those shiny floors might become uneven or present a slip hazard. Poorly placed fixtures can contribute to falls and serious injuries, especially for the elderly or those with disabilities.

Accessing the bathroom, shower or bath is one of the most common problems – narrow doors that don’t easily accommodate walking aids for example, or a lack of handles and grab rails making even stepping in and out of the shower – let alone the bath – incredibly difficult, if not impossible.

Not only is this a risk to health, causing physical strain and discomfort, but it can also be very upsetting, leaving someone feeling they are losing their independence and dignity.

Beautiful bathrooms

Thankfully there are many, many ways to overcome this scenario, address the dangers and make your bathroom a safer and more accessible place.

The experts at the Bathing Mobility Advisory Service specialise in accessible bathroom designs. They can evaluate your bathroom and provide customised recommendations based ono your needs, budget and preferences. And they can do all of this in your own home.

Designed for living

There are some stunning modern designs for wet rooms, walk in baths and showers, raised toilets, support rails, in-shower seating, easy-to-use taps and fittings – all designed with ease, safety and mobility in mind.

Rated excellent on Trustpilot, you don’t have to take the word of BMAS alone, here’s what some of their happy customers have said in their reviews:

“Excellent service throughout the process of getting a bathroom converted to a wet room arrangement. Advisor came to the property to discuss the residents’ requirements at length before developing the design … I would thoroughly recommend this company if you are looking at a bathroom conversion.” – Eric, December 2023

“We are pleased with end result. Steve visited us and explained our options without any sales pressure. We visited the showroom and liked what we saw and our queries were answered. Adam and Bradley, our fitters, were very hard working, polite and very tidy. It was completed in 5 days, despite various problems. John came a few days later and sorted out a couple of snags. Very helpful. All in all, we are glad we had it done!” – Trevor, November 2023.

“We got a bath removed and replaced with a walk in shower suitable for an elderly person. The fitters were wonderful. Jim and James got great reviews from other customers of BMAS when we were researching contractors and I have to say they lived up to it …. They were so patient with my elderly mother whose house they were working in and were so clean and tidy we had virtually nothing to do each night by way of cleaning up.” – October 2023
