Well-planned for all generations

The barrier-free bathroom: A relief, both today and tomorrow

Are you also interested in a bathroom that is fit for the future? One that offers lasting bathing comfort, particularly if individual demands and life situations change? hansgrohe gives solid tips on how to plan an attractive multi-generational bathroom that makes life easier and more comfortable for people of all ages, whether you’re a young family, single or a senior citizen.

Make your bathroom future-ready

Life is all about change. How quickly we could need assistance in everyday life. Growing older can also significantly restrict access to bathroom comforts. Children also have specific ergonomic requirements different from the needs of adults. Perhaps you have also considered how you can ensure more comfort and safety in your bathroom in the long term – in other words: How your future-ready bathroom might look.

Here’s how to ensure that your bathroom evolves along with your life

The cross-generation bathroom is intended to make life in the bathroom simpler and more convenient for all ages. It is no accident that considerations begin with the floor-level shower space. Barrier-free access means real added value for old and young alike. What else? A clear architecture with anti-slip surfaces and lots of freedom of movement. A bathroom free from tripping hazards also benefits children, who like to act up in the bathroom. Finally, thought must be given to good lighting, offering orientation at all times and supporting safe operation of the technology.

Help is on the way

hansgrohe has developed the brochure “EINS – Das Bad mit Zukunft”. The advice it contains support the barrier-free bathroom for the whole family. Use the download for your planning. Incidentally: Age-appropriate renovation may be state-subsidized. Please inform yourself accordingly. Insurance may also provide assistance for this purpose.

The bathroom of the future should be limitless.
Safe and beautiful: The glass partition leaves the floor-level shower open at both ends. The grab bar and seat are mounted in the shower. (Partition, shower space by HÜPPE GmbH).
“Bathroom comfort for all concerns more than just the architecture. All functions should be easy to understand and operate, too.”
