Accessible motel bathroom

Motel ToiletI was once apologetically offered an “accessible room” as it was the last one left for the night. While I did not require the features of an accessible room, it was very functional with an attractive finish in keeping with the style of the rest of the motel rooms. While the shower area did look a bit institutional, it was nonetheless functional – the extra circulation space is also convenient for people who are ambulant.

However, the shower head would be too high for a wheelchair user, and there is now discussion about the function of a wall mounted shower seat for wheelchair users who use a shower chair.

Motel Vanity Basin






There is one other key factor that is often forgotten in all motel rooms – being able to get the electric jug under the basin tap to fill it.
