Let's play “What's wrong with this bathroom?”
— the game show where you can win a free consultation to evaluate how Accessible Solutions can fix it! This remodeling project was meant to be an accessible bathroom, which was renovated by a firm who said they knew accessibility. This just goes to show that there are a lot of businesses out there that don't know what they're doing when it comes to handicap accessible bathrooms, and that's a reason to trust the experts!
The shower seat is right under the mixing valve and personal shower — so a disabled person sitting down on that shower seat would hit their head on the mixing valve, but other than that would have to stand up to turn the water on/off — ugh! The personal shower on a slide arm is placed incorrectly — note it is behind them and over their head — which is not suited for proper personal use. That’s why you see their fold up padded seat being unused because they had to go out and buy a self-standing shower seat to try to use this shower. Their shower walls were thin and flimsy — when you touched the walls they actually moved, and the water barrier on the bottom was so flimsy water still ran out and ruined her floor. What an expensive disappointing experience.
Their sink was mounted too low for someone in a wheelchair to roll under — it did not meet ADA standards — and as it was deep and could not be rolled under, a client in a wheelchair couldn't reach the faucet handle!This is proof that when a job is not done with the right products and by the right company, it all must be redone.
Now let's see it done right! An ADA vanity at the proper height for wheelchair use in whitewashed maple with a granite blend top — with no pipes showing. Beautiful, isn’t it? These are custom-made in your choice of poplar, maple, oak, hickory, alder or cherry in your choice of finishes, complemented by a beautiful solid surface or granite blend top in over 50 different colors.
This shower has a dual shower head configuration, so the family can use the fixed shower head, and someone physically challenged can sit right down and control their own personal shower head — right from their bamboo seat. Our client today responded, “Everything is just perfect!” finally... courtesy of Accessible Solutions.
This goes to show that you can only trust the experts — and that's Accessible Solutions!
