Wetroom Installation - Making the most of Available Space

Wet-rooms are not only for wheelchair users but can be a joy to use for the whole family, from children to older people - possibly even the dog! A safe, spacious showering area with non-slip floor reduces the risk of injury stepping in or out of showers and baths.

Practical Bathing recently completed the conversion of a disused corridor into a brand new wet-room to provide level access showering for a client in Longworth.

A level access, walk-in, wheel-in shower facility can be essential for some clients. This installation began with blocking up an old door and panelling over it and the uneven walls, using multi-panel laminated ply, to create a water-proof environment.

During the installation, the concrete floor was excavated and a pumped waste kit plumbed in beneath Level-Dec tray, ready for the non-slip vinyl floor to be laid.

Following the preparation, to complete the shower facility, we fitted the Supreme Option G half-height enclosure with bi-fold doors and installed a Selectronic 9.5kW shower, set up specifically to enable seated use.

A wasted space was transformed into a useful, attractive wet-room.

Practical Bathing has expertise in servicing the bathroom and toilet facility needs of disabled and elderly clients and would be delighted to assist with any wet-room or bathroom conversions you may have.

Please call us for a discussion or quotation - or view our website for practical bathing solutions.

Only ONE Practical Bathing

It has come to our attention that a new company has started up in York calling itself “York Practical Bathing”. Eagle eyed viewers will spot that their web site and email is actually, missing the C in Practical. This company is in no way related to Practical Bathing at, and has been asked to stop using our name.

Change of Management

In June 2012, Paul Barfoot purchased the shares of co-Director David Barfoot, making Paul the outright owner of Practical Bathing. David is no longer associated with the Company in any way.

From our new premises in Windsor, Practical Bathing continues to offer carefully selected BRITISH MADE baths, bath lifts and showers, with a high quality installation service.  In line with our policy of continual improvement, some exciting new products are due to be announced in autumn 2012!

UK products – and proud of it!

In this year of the Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, Practical Bathing is proud to support British industry. All of our baths are made in the UK by highly reputable manufacturers. By using UK manufacturers, we are able to guarantee top quality products, plus rapid and reliable after sales service. Although we are aware of products from eastern Europe and the far east, we will not supply them as the quality and customer service do not match our high standards.
