Non-slip bathroom flooring

Generally, a residential wet room requires an R9 slip rated tile which is a matt finish. However, in some cases, such as commercial showers, the wet room may require a slip rated tile R10. 

Bathroom design factors to consider

If you are remodelling a home bathroom to support a family member, attention needs to be given to the likelihood of increased assistance requirements or a decrease in physical capabilities in the future, if relevant, as well as the person/s current needs.

Other factors to consider when designing an accessible bathroom include:

  • Safe supply of hot water - fitting a tempering valve to control hot water temperature prevent scalds. A setting of 50° Celcius is recommended to protect at-risk residents in bathing areas.
  • Placement of items such as bathing products, shampoo, towels, toothbrushes, etc for easy access.
  • Allow for ample space to manoeuvre around the bathroom.
  • Higher than standard toilet for easy use with appropriately located toilet paper dispenser if required.
  • Ample light, utilising natural light where possible, and accessible light switches.
  • Is a shower seat needed? - either rolling or fixed
  • Accessible storage, vanity, and cabinets
  • Accessible clothes hook or racks
  • Is space needed below the vanity for knee or foot clearance?
  • Opting for flick mixer taps which are often easier to use than traditional twist tapware.
  • Ensure the mirror placement is suitable
  • Allow easy, safe access to power points.
