Our needs begin to change once the aging process begins. Once you or a member of your family encounters mobility issues, it’s important to consider building a more accessible bathroom. Of course, you want it to be accessible to everyone in the home.

Capital Bathroom Renovation can turn your regular bathroom into a wheelchair-accessible bathroom quickly and easily. We build your barrier-free bathroom with safety and ease of use in mind.

Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Ottawa

Many older bathrooms and even modern bathrooms aren’t wheelchair-friendly. They need to be able to use all aspects of the bathroom easily and safely. It’s important that using the bathroom is convenient and easy to manoeuvre around. Everyone has their own needs so make sure to discuss the details when you talk to your bathroom contractor.

They can custom build your new wheelchair-accessible bathroom to suit the very needs for you and your loved ones. This may include everything from wider doors, accessible bathtubs, tub-to-shower conversions, and lower or higher sinks and mirrors. Not all barrier-free washrooms are alike. Capital Bathroom Renovations understands this and we work with you to find the best solution for all your accessibility needs.

Accessible Renovation Design

Every person using a walker or a wheelchair will have different needs. Electric wheelchairs are different from manual chairs. The design of your bathroom must be able to accommodate this. Wider doors with no threshold or rim at the bottom that can be difficult to navigate. There needs to be enough room for them to enter, and completely turn around. 

There should be space under the sink so they can pull right up and the toilet will need extra space around it. You will also need handrails for assistance near the toilet. Even if your bathroom is small, we can make it work. Our designers understand the dimensions and can make sure that you have a perfectly accessible washroom that works for everyone.

Accessible Renovation Contractor

Looking for a contractor is already a big job, but you need to find one that has experience or specializes in barrier-free washrooms. It is important that you hire a team that understands the specifics and needs so they can design your bathroom for ultimate accessibility, safety, and comfort.

A general contractor may have a lot of experience but you want to find someone who understands what is needed in a wheelchair-accessible washroom. They need to be able to work to your specifications and your budget.

Accessible Shower Design

Another important aspect of your barrier free bathroom is an accessible shower. The type of shower you get will depend on the needs of the person who uses it. If the entire chair needs to be able to fit in, that needs to be taken into account. There needs to be a bench or enough space to install a shower chair. The faucets should be accessible and the shower head needs to be adjustable.

Everything needs to be within reach of someone sitting down. Consider handheld showers, soap dispensers, and low shelving to store all your bathroom essentials. Accessible storage must be available for towels and other accessories. Mirrors can be lowered or tilted downward, and easy access doors can be installed that open easily or slide.
