For an individual with physical limitations, utilizing a common household bathroom can be extremely difficult and, in some cases, impossible. Having a bathroom remodeled so that it is accessible for disabled individuals can allow someone to improve their quality of life and allow them to continue life in the comfort of their own home. Kompan Home Improvements is an experienced remodeler of handicapped accessible bathrooms.
In a typical residential hallway a bathroom door will need to be widened to be able to be entered into by a wheelchair. This allows for space to turn. It is advisable to have the door swing outward instead of inward. In cases where the doorway cannot be widened, pocket doors are a viable option.
Kompan Home Improvements can help select the correct bars for your needs. Placement next to toilets, bathtub sidewalls, in showers is advisable for someone with physical limitations. Dependent on your specific application, Kompan Home Improvements can help identify the best hardware and installation location for your handicap accessible bathroom remodel.
Typically bathroom cabinets or vanities are 36” high but ADA requirements are 34” high countertops. Knee clearance and floor space are also considerations for counter placement.
Shower or tub entry is of great concern in an accessible bathroom. Roll-in showers are typically made of tile and there is no barrier between the bathroom floor and the shower floor. Due to the lack of a barrier, a wheelchair can roll into the shower. Typically, walk-in showers have a raised barrier.
Extra space is almost always needed when doing a handicap accessible bathroom remodel. Kompan Home Improvements can help identify areas where extra space can be created to make it easier for your loved one to move about the bathroom safely.
These are some things to take into consideration when hiring a handicap bathroom contractor and remodeling your bathroom for accessibility. Kompan Home Improvements can remodel a handicap accessible bathroom specific to your needs.
Many features of an ADA Bathroom are desirable for physically independent people; but some are not. Kompan Home Improvements will take consideration into making undesirable features reversible with the build of your accessible bathroom.
