KALDEWEI, Ahlen, October 2019. – The bathroom should be a place that feels comfortable at any stage of your life. Yet, many people, as they get older, find that its once functional purpose quickly becomes out-dated, restricts their freedom of movement and poses trip hazards when negotiating their way into and out of the bath or shower. It’s high time for a bathroom upgrade to meet the needs of advancing age. KALDEWEI advises ideal solutions for a flexible bathroom – meeting the needs of both now and in the future, as well as looking stylish – without overstretching the often limited budget in retirement.
Everyone eventually faces the challenges of advancing age, where daily life and mobility in our own home becomes increasingly difficult. This is when we need an interior that is optimised for the needs in later life, enabling us for as long as possible to live autonomous lives without assistance. The bathroom is one place in the home where privacy is paramount and it should therefore be designed to ensure independence in taking care of personal hygiene needs, regardless of age. How do we eliminate trip hazards? What can we do if getting in or out of the bath is no longer safe? How can we maximise space for more room to manoeuvre? KALDEWEI offers practical and affordable solutions that help upgrade the bathroom to a flexible bathroom which meets the needs of now and the future as well as having the feel-good factor.
XXL-size floor-level showers in place of a bath
Developers increasingly opt for a floor-level shower to replace the bath and for good reason, because floor-flush showers create a seamless transition to the floor, improving comfort, safety and visual appeal. This fusion makes the room appear bigger and provides ease of access with no edges to trip over. As a manufacturer of durable steel enamel bathroom products, KALDEWEI has a portfolio of more than 100,000 solutions for floor-level shower areas. Upgrades benefit particularly from large-size shower surfaces, as they can be easily and inexpensively installed in place of a bath. The position of the waste outlet eliminates the need for complicated shifting of the bathroom waste pipe. Enamelled XXL shower surfaces from KALDEWEI start at around £509 for the KALDEWEI Cayonoplan shower surface in size 90cm x 140cm. Shower surfaces can optionally be finished with a slip-resistant coating such as KALDEWEI Secure Plus for additional safety at no extra cost for many models.
Smart washbasin design for greater freedom of movement.
The KALDEWEI steel enamel washbasins are the perfect match for a floor-level enamelled shower surface. They are available in a variety of sizes and designs, including several wheelchair-accessible wall-hung models. A countertop washbasin with wall-hung bathroom furniture is ideal where extra utility space is essential. KALDEWEI offers countertop washbasins in four different designs. At an entry-level price point, the Puro countertop washbasin sells from £304.
