3 tips before you get your new bathing solution

  • If you have a free home survey, have your loved ones with you so you can find the best solution for the whole family.
  • If you don’t own your own property, make sure you have permission from your landlord before you make any changes to your bathroom.
  • Dependent on your age or mobility issue you may qualify for a reduced rate of VAT. Please speak to one of our advisors for more details.

The benefits of a walk-in shower

  • Can be enjoyed standing or sitting down, as all of our showers come with a foldable wooden or padded shower seat.
  • Quicker than running a bath, you can just pop in the shower if you are in a hurry.
  • Wheelchair or carer accessible with a wide variety of door options – ideal for those using mobility aids.
  • Ultra-low trays which make getting in and out, safe and secure especially when grab rails are used.
  • A huge variety of sizes including bath replacement, corner and compact showers, so there is something to suit most bathroom layouts.

The benefits of a wet room

  • Floor level access for unobstructed movement in and out offering added reassurance.
  • Can be enjoyed standing or sitting down, as all of our showers come with a foldable wooden or padded shower seat.
  • Slip-resistant floor tiling available in a wide choice of attractive colours and mosaics.
  • Ideal for wheelchair for mobility aid users as the wet room floor is the same level as your bathroom.
  • Must be installed by a professional so the bathroom remains leak free.
  • Ideal for a main bathroom or en-suite.

The benefits of a Walk-in or powered bath

  • All of our baths have been designed to fit the variations of a standard British home. We can provide baths that have doors on either side or even on the end.
  • You can still use an overhead shower and added screen or curtain to maintain the convenience of a traditional shower.
  • Our baths can offer a number of optional extras to add that touch of luxury, including Spa therapy, Chromotherapy or a CosyWarm heated seat.
  • If you have limited mobility but still prefer a relaxing soak, powered seats with leg lift are available to raise and lower you into the bath in complete safety.
  • Baths are available either full length so you can lie back or in more compact models, sit in, ideal where mobility problems may hinder you from fully reclining.
