We Understand When Life Changes
Accessible Showers and Bathrooms by BATS
AT BATS BATHROOMS we understand that as life changes needs change too. Our expertise in designing and building accessible showers and bathrooms helps our clients keep their independence and stay in the homes they love for longer. BATS Bathroom & Tiling Specialists are Brisbane and Sunshine Coast’s premier installers of accessible showers in houses, apartments or units.
PLANNING ACCESSIBLE SHOWERS takes experience and understanding as all of our customer’s needs are different. With more than 15 years experience you can trust BATS Bathroom & Tiling Specialists to come up with a solution that will work for you and make your life easier and safer. These are a few things to consider when planning accessible showers and bathrooms:
- What bathroom activities require a user to need assistance? every person has different needs and present and future requirements should be taken into account when designing an accessible shower or bathroom. Planning ahead ensures that if a person’s health should deteriorate the bathroom will still be suitable.
- Is wheelchair access required? a shower without a lip is ideal for people using a wheelchair, walker or for someone who is at risk for falls and can be used by everyone regardless of ability.
- Sink and vanity access: wall mounted sinks and vanities are generally better suited for accessible showers and bathrooms particularly if a wheelchair needs to be accommodated.
- Placement of mirrors: mounting a lower placed mirror, extra long mirror, or tilt mirror that everyone can use is an important consideration.
- Is a bathtub or shower more suitable: some clients feel more comfortable using a tub than a shower and the bathroom design should take this into account. We find that we are often asked to remove a bathtub and install an accessible shower for clients with mobility issues.
- Lighting: good lighting in the bathroom is important for safety and motion detecting lights can be used when access to switches is difficult.
There is a lot to think about when planning accessible showers and bathrooms so it makes sense to get expert advice to ensure that you end up with a bathroom that meets your specific needs and requirements.

“Just had my bathroom remodeled through these guys partnering with Bats Bathrooms . Was a pleasure dealing with them and their solid honest advice by guys with tradies backgrounds and no sales pitch. Thanks to Rhys and Dave for going that extra mile during works and to your hard working well mannered dedicated crews who were all very proficient in their respective trades and crafts. They did a great job in a timely structured manner offering us access to their interactive portal to communicate issues and visualise the works calendar to see which crews were coming and when . We can’t be happier with end result – a beautiful bathroom .”
