Design your bathroom to be fit for the future

Life consists of change. Help with your daily routine may be needed very quickly, even after a minor sports accident. Similarly, ageing can significantly restrict access to the comforts of the bathroom. Children also have specific ergonomic requirements, different from those of adults. One thing is certain: Situations in life change. Perhaps you have already thought about how to guarantee added convenience and safety in your bathroom over the long term, or in short: what your future-proof bathroom might look like.

Make your bathroom ready for life’s changes

The concept of the cross-generation bathroom is based on the desire to make life in the bathroom easier and more convenient for users of all ages. Deliberations focus on the floor-level shower area, and not without good reason. Accessibility signifies real added value for young and old alike. What else? Clear architecture with non-slip surfaces and plenty of room to move around. A bathroom with no tripping hazards also benefits children, who love to run around in the bathroom. Finally, good lighting should also be considered, to provide orientation at all times and support safe handling of the technology. Night lighting rounds off the lighting concept.

The bathroom of the future should be accessible.
Safe and attractive: the glass partition leaves the floor-level shower area open on both sides. Grab bar and seat are installed in the shower. (Partition, shower area HÜPPE GmbH).
“Bathroom comfort for all is not just about the architecture. All the functions should also be easy to understand and to operate.”
