Mobility Wet Rooms

Our mobility wet rooms

Are very much like  our standard wet rooms but they have been designed and built for people unable to use a  conventional bath. These mobility wet rooms or walk in showers are our speciality.

A bath side is not very high, so it should not be difficult to step over. The main difficulty with getting into a normal bath is the difference in levels, not the height of the bath side. This greatly upsets your balance proving dangerous when wet.


 

Some of our work


Dave’s Mobility wet room

What Dave had to say-

As I have become disabled, I needed my bathroom converted into a wet room and I chose Apollo Design to do this work and it turned out to be a good decision.

Paul Goodyear from Apollo visited and spent some time discussing what I wanted, needed, and how this could best be achieved.  Paul explained that for us it was going to be a major project with the bathroom completely gutted, all existing tiles removed, ceiling re-plastered and a trench dug into the existing floor for drainage.

Once on-site Paul together with his team of Jason and Stuart were brilliant.  Always on time they kept the amount of mess down to an absolute minimum and always cleared it away at the end of the day. 

Having them in our home was a real pleasure.  They were always polite, considerate and very funny and we really missed them once they had finished and gone.  They would be welcome back at any time.

I had hoped for a bright, modern and stylish wet room but the finished job was better than I could have imagined.  The standard of finish was excellent, and visitors have said how good it looks. My occupational therapist remarked on how well the new wet room suited my needs and how she hadn’t believed it could be achieved in the space I had. Although there were a couple of issues caused by the existing plumbing which could not have been foreseen and caused the job to overrun slightly Paul kept the price to his original estimate.

A brilliant job done by a wonderful team.

Many thanks

Mobility wet room

Mobility wet room.

Mobility wet room in Diss. A nice and simple black and white theme.


This is a rather expensive WC. It has a flush sensor, Spray wash and warm air drier.

Large Wet Room.

This was a large office that we converted to a Wet Room with a wall hung WC.

Adrian’s Wet Room.

All pipe work was buried apart from the soil pipe which was too large and taking the washing machine waste from next door. The walls tiled with a white tile.

Mr Last’s Wet Room.

This was a separate bathroom and WC which made the bath area very small. The bath was only 1600 mm long. Finding it increasingly difficult to use the bath, they wanted a shower.

Mrs Thompton’s Wet Room.

This was a very long and narrow ensuite, with a shower enclosure at one end. This had a very high tray, which was impossible for Mrs Thompton’s mother to climb into.

Bathroom to a wet room..

This was a slightly larger than average bathroom. So it does make a spacious wet room. We removed the bath, Plumbed in the shower and laid in a shower drain gully. We also fitted a corner basin vanity to give even more feel of space.

Mobility Wet Rooms

Rose and Crown Hotel in Colchester.

The Rose and Crown Hotel in Colchester is the oldest hotel in the town. It originated as a coaching inn. They needed to have disabled facilities available. So they asked us to convert one of their bathrooms into a wet room.

Bathroom to Wet Room.

This was an ordinary bathroom in a bungalow. We removed the bath, dug up the concrete floor and fitted a shower gully. We fully tiled the walls, fitted a folding shower seat and some grab handles. Mr Mitchell was very pleased and was quite surprised at how much more room he had.

More with Altro safety floors.

This is yet another two mobility wet rooms. both with the same colour flooring. Though it does not look like it because of the light. Perhaps I should study photography? The floor is Sea grass, which is a grey green that goes with almost anything. I think that the neutral colours are best. The bright, bold blues look a bit harsh and can clash with everything. A floor looks totally different down, compared to looking at a pattern.
