DBS Residential

Bathroom renovations for seniors that provide comfort, safety, accessibility and look great

Future-proofing your bathroom doesn’t have to mean making it unattractive

Well-designed bathrooms can help older people remain independent in their own homes for longer. While most people take the bathroom area for granted, it can be the most uncomfortable space for the elderly if not designed properly and convenience issues are safety issues.

At DBS Residential, we use our expertise and our experience to create bathrooms for older folks that

… are both functional and look good

… don’t have bathroom fittings or plumbing that look out of place

… put the comfort and safety of our seniors first.

A good bathroom renovation job well done is a sound investment as it can help people remain living in their own homes as they grow less young.

We are North Shore builders who are well known for our approachability and the quality of our work. We have built up a valuable reputation working with residential clients, and it’s a reputation we’re very proud of. When it comes to bathrooms for older people, we’ll take care of everything to the best of our ability and we’ll do it with a smile.

Bathroom and renovations for all ages and stages

Ageing should be considered when planning any bathroom renovation.

If you or a loved one are renovating with an eye toward future needs, there are some very important issues to consider before you start. From design to safety, to ease of use, remodelling a bathroom takes time, effort and money, but for anyone who wants to age in place, having a bathroom that is comfortable and safe to use as needs change, can be very worthwhile.

Considerations for an elder-friendly bathroom include …

  • a walk-in shower with non-slip tiles, sufficient space for a seat and a handheld shower head. A frameless shower screen panel with safety glass adds a modern look and further eliminates the likelihood of trips or falls.
  • easy-turning taps. With an aging population, taps that can be turned on and off easily are essential. You may wish to opt for lever taps over twist taps.
  • the height of vanity tops, storage, and power points, making sure they are neither too high, too low nor at an awkward angle.
  • adding handrails to key areas over the bath, by the toilet and in the shower.

bathroom renovation for elderly
I contracted Dan and his team for a bathroom renovation. Right from the first phone call the entire team bent over backwards to be flexible and work with my changing timelines. They were knowledgeable, helpful and I was really happy with the end result in my bathroom. They communicated with me throughout the project, and everything went as planned.

I would use DBS Residential for any future projects I have.
