We are assembly with J, our go to guy for contracting/handiwork for our home, tonight. We have used him to place in our faucet and rubbish disposal, to put in a fuel valve and electrical box for our stove, and to vary/set up our water heater. We determined he was up to the duty for the toilet.
If the bathroom has a traditional bathtub, buy a transfer bench. Disabled bathrooms often use these benches. They’re sturdy, with 4 legs. Two of the legs rest within the bathtub, and the opposite two legs sit outside the bathtub in order that the bench straddles the ledge of the bathtub. This approach, the elder can sit on the bench and switch his physique into the bathtub with out having to really step over the bathtub ledge.
Basically what you wish to do when you’ve got all these samples is lay them all out along along with your different bathroom components. You can see we have got a sink, a brushed nickel pipe, concrete, and a brown wooden tile as our teak-wooden stand-in. It may be overwhelming to see it all at once, but here’s the trick: somewhat than attempting to decide what you like greatest, begin by eliminating the issues that are not working for you. Hopefully this will get you to a manageable place the place you can begin making selections. Of course even with this technique, we still debated the choices off-and-on for an hour or extra.
In this case, the wallboard was retained – the wiring had already been investigated, and OK-ed. The old carpet and underlay were eliminated, and the ground was stripped all the way down to the sub-flooring, to make way for the new vinyl flooring that may be put in. The sub-floor was in nice shape, so nothing additional was required there.
Here’s one other thought for storage. If you’ve gotten a toilet set in between partitions (again and 2 sidewalls )install a cabinet above the toilet. Normally the width of the stall is 36” or ‘s attainable to install a wall cupboard above the bathroom roughly 30” high by the width of the stall. BECAUSE the higher cupboard is 12” deep there should be enough headroom clearance.
