DW Services is pleased to provide a link below to a very comprehensive blog from one of our suppliers, Impey The Wetroom Specialists, on how to install a level access wetroom.
When fitting an inclusive showering area, installers are keen to recognise the relevant design elements and understand how they will benefit the user. Specialist manufacturer and founder of the modern-day wetroom Impey takes a closer look at the choices available when creating inclusive showering solutions in domestic bathrooms.
The increasing level of care in the community, resulting in elderly and disabled residents staying in their own homes for longer, means that the need for home adaptations is rising. Installers who work with Local Authorities or Home Improvement Agencies may have noticed a predicted rise in the number of bathroom adaptations to be carried out during 2017. As a recent report suggests: “In recognition of the rising need for adaptations, central government funding for the Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) has been increased considerably. In 2016/17 it rose by 79% from £220 million to £394 million and it is projected to increase to over £500 million by 2019/20.”* In addition, those who don’t meet criteria to receive a DFG, are often privately funding their own adaptations and installing an inclusive shower room, in order to maintain a comfortable standard of living within their own homes and prepare for their future needs.
