Adapted bathroom – suitable for a wheelchair user

Description
The spacious bathroom has a washbasin (Photo 1), shower stall (Photo 2) and toilet. The toilet is low so that the shower chair fits over it.
A wooden ramp covers the gap between the level of the bathroom and the hall (Photo 3).

Authors comments
When the user became injured the family was in the process of building an addition to the house. The bathroom had not yet been built and could therefore be adapted to the user's needs. Heating coils were installed later, because of this there is a slight difference between the level of the hall and the bathroom.
