Creating a Stylish Bathroom to Fit Your Needs

Bathing should be a relaxing experience that everyone can enjoy. At Trojan, we recognise that those who suffer with mobility conditions, as well as those who want to future proof their homes, also want beautiful bathrooms.

Bathe Easy provides practical yet stylish easy access baths, showers and accessories, creating safer bathrooms that the whole family can enjoy without a clinical look or feel. From our contemporary L Shaped Solarna walk-in shower bath, to Freedom, our walk-in deep soak perfect for smaller bathrooms, Trojan’s easy access baths are ideal for any home.

Whilst many of us don’t think twice before we jump in the shower or take a soak in a bath at the end of a long day, for those suffering with back pain, something as simple as this can often be a difficult or even impossible task.

With the average age of those struggling with chronic back pain decreasing, studies have shown that chronic pain in 19-39-year olds could be as high as 30%. Charities such as ‘Away with Pain’ and ‘Backcare’ aim to raise awareness of this chronic and often debilitating issue, whilst Bathe Easy aims ensure comfortable bathing no matter what your mobility condition.

A comfortable and safe bathroom and a place to relax and unwind at the end of a long day is something that everyone should be entitled to. However, for those with spinal injuries, this isn’t necessarily easy. According to ‘Spinal-Research.org’, there are currently more than 50,000 people in the UK and Ireland living with paralysis due to spinal cord injury.

In addition to this, ‘The Stroke Association’ have released data to suggest that 65% of stroke survivors will leave hospital with a disability, with around three quarters experiencing arm or leg weakness.

Although this paralysis is not always permanent, rehabilitation is essential. Often a bath can provide an escape from the pressures of adjusting to a new way of life, and therefore having the right bath can have a significant impact.

From our Style walk in shower bath with full width-fold down seat, to the Liberty, our power seat bath with integral lift allowing gentle lifting in and out of the bath, Bathe Easy provides a safe and independent bathing environment.

Finally, ‘Population Ageing’ is a global phenomenon and one that is showing no signs of slowing down.

According to charities such as ‘Age UK’ and ‘Age International’ almost a third of homes are headed by someone over the age of 65, with 64% of homes owned outright by someone over the age of 65.

Considering these demographics it is essential as we need to understand how to support our ageing population both now and in the future. As homeowners continue to age, houses need to be ‘future proofed’ in order to accommodate the needs of older residents, as well as considering the rise in multi-generational living.

At Trojan, we believe that bathing should be a relaxing experience for everyone, no matter what your age or ability. We also understand that those who want to future proof their homes, also want beautiful bathrooms.

Bathe Easy products can be enjoyed by any age or ability. Therefore, making them perfect for every home and every body, both now and in the future.
