Wet-room Showering - easier and more spacious

Peterborough: Mrs T has had difficulty rising from her bath for some time and had previously had a bath hoist installed. Practical Bathing was contracted to strip out the old fashioned bathroom, clean up all the pipework and update it with a level-access wet-room with shower and WC facilities.

On removing the vinyl floor covering, we discovered that the floor underneath was thoroughly damp. It was decided to remove and replace with a new suspended wooden floor. We were able to conceal plumbing pipework in cavities, boxing or false walls which we finished with easy-clean Trovex panelling.

Practical, sealed anti-slip vinyl was used for the wet-room floor. New WC, wash hand basin and showering facilities were all fitted so that Mrs T can enjoy safe and enjoyable showering in a pleasant, clean and more spacious environment - with the benefit of easier maintenance!
