bathroom refurbishment; building products & services Multi-generational living


The way we live is changing, and this needs to be reflected in housing design and refurbishment. According to the Intergenerational Foundation think tank, over 500,000 households have at least three generations living under one roof, and that number is expected to rise to 556,000 by 2019 with a significant increase in the number of people aged 85 or over. When the time comes for bathroom refurbishment, specifiers need to look not only for what is needed from each product now, but also how it would perform in the years ahead. In response to this demand for sustainability, manufacturers are


increasingly developing products that incorporate easy-to-use features into an attractively designed unit. There are now showers available which are endorsed by BEAB Care and RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind), ensuring the safest possible experience for residents of all abilities. These models combine modern styling and ease of use features such as


large, easy-to-move dials, raised markings and audible clicks when settings are adjusted, illuminated stop/start buttons, LED digital setting displays and contrasting back boxes – all designed to increase suitability for users of a wide range of abilities. What’s more, there are plenty of cleverly designed fittings that provide


aid for vulnerable users without impacting on the rest of the family. A wall-mounted fold-up shower seat, for example, is practical and unobtrusive. For safety, grab rails usually come into the picture, but by choosing versions that double up as stylish towel rails or over-basin shelves they become a bathroom accessory rather than assistive aid. Refurbishment projects are no simple undertaking, but specifying the right products can help reduce costs for both the housing provider and


tenants. The bathroom is one of the most important areas of a home, and choosing sturdy, easy to use fittings, which can also save on bills is an easy winner for social housing managers.
