Handicap Accessible Bathroom Remodels Encourage Independence
The expert handicap accessible bathroom remodel contractors of RetroBath in Summit are here to create a tub or shower space that suits you and your lifestyle. Accessibility Showers are showers designed and optimized for those with limited mobility or those with special needs that may rely on a wheeled device. They are easy to enter and exit and include optimal positioning of necessary items such as shower controls and caddy areas.
These items are designed to be accessible from both a seated or standing position. They may also include a permanently installed shower seat (flip-up styles are available) or a portable seat. Grab bars ensure safety for balance and support. We offer a variety of configurable options and will help you design a handicap accessible bathroom system that best suits your needs! We also offer Walk-in Bathtubs.
Handicap Accessible Showers
Your handicap accessible shower’s entrance will be wide enough to allow for a wheelchair, walker, or wheeled shower chair to fit with ease. When we meet with you, we will help you design the perfect space for you or your loved ones’ specific needs. The Summit handicap bathroom remodel contractors of RetroBath will take into account the mobility device being used and the limitations or ability to maneuver with the equipment while in the wetspace area. A zero-threshold entrance is ideal for handicap accessible showers. This means the entrance to the shower is flush with the floor, allowing for smooth and easy transition in and out of the shower.
RetroBath Makeover has expert handicap accessible bathroom remodel contractors to design a space perfectly suited for you. We service Summit, Union County and the neighboring New Jersey cities.
Handicap Accessible Bathroom Accessories
Handheld and adjustable shower heads can greatly enhance a seated user’s ability to access the water and bathe independently. Some handheld shower head models simply consist of a shower head attached to the end of an adjustable hose. Others come attached to a vertical slide bar that gets fixed to the shower wall. The vertical bar is helpful for holding the shower head while a bather is soaping and shampooing. The handheld slide bar also serves as a grab bar so you have a safe place to hold while bending or exiting/entering your shower.
Additional grab bars are optional. These can be strategically placed in your custom shower system based on your needs. The professional Summit handicap bathroom remodelers of RetroBath will always install the shower controls so they are within easy reaching distance of the seat.
Handicap Accessible Shower Seating
Shower seats are available in several options which include chairs, wall-mounted with a flip-up option, and benches. With proper installation, wall-mounted shower seats are incredibly strong and stable. Bench-style seating has a larger surface for sitting and allows for a convenient place for resting shower items close to you. If a stationary seat is not the best option, chairs and stools are available with or without castors. Our design specialists will help you choose the best option for your needs.
