Age-appropriate bathroom design with HOESCH - Clever design incorporates comfort and convenience for the 50+ generation

Anyone planning or redesigning a bathroom often needs to do so with vision: looking forward to every age and all situations in life. Once designed and installed, your very own dream bathroom should also remain so, for a lifetime. Long-term bathroom design therefore means that each and every one of us – from children to the over-50s – feels at home and can move around freely. Not least because bathrooms, in particular, tend to be an intimate place of retreat.

However, when you look at the contemporary designs of HOESCH models, you’re unlikely to associate them with “accessibility”. And yet, concealed behind their elegance and innovative shapes, is precisely the epitome of accessibility: comfortable, convenient and practical for all generations. HOESCH product developers are guided by standards including DIN 18040, to combine aspects, such as safety, threshold-free design and adequate space to move, with a contemporary design.

If, on the contrary, you would prefer to have a completely separate shower cabin with door, you are guaranteed to be won over by the HOESCH Senior Solution shower enclosure: it features a sophisticated hinged door, which opens outwards with a very wide entrance, sits flush with the floor and boasts safety glass with EverClean coating. The shower cabin is installed as a corner quadrant and has been specially developed for senior living.

HOESCH shower partitions have an EverClean coating to provide ease of cleaning of the glass surfaces. The chemical and physical properties of the glass have been modified to ensure that the water simply rolls off. The glass remains crystal clear and clean for longer.

HOESCH also offers the free-standing, rectangular LaSenia bath made of Solique material in a version with a lower entry height. This bath is only 440 mm high and so is easier to enter and exit. The adjustable backrests increase comfort when lying and comfortably adapt to the user’s individual lying position. The soft and contemporary design of the bath is sure to appeal to style-conscious people.

Renovation without major upheaval

HOESCH has a range of renovation systems if an existing bathroom is to be converted to meet the needs of the over 50s, avoiding the time-consuming removal of wall coverings and tiles. The panels are simply applied to the wall using a special adhesive, without creating any dirt and dust. The panels give the bathroom a bright new appearance, at the same time guaranteeing trouble-free cleaning.
