Accessible Bathroom Adaptations – Fully funded/VAT Free

If your home isn't suitable for your needs, it is possible to get financial help from your council or housing association to adapt it.  This includes bathroom adaptations, stairlifts and ramps.  At MS All Trades Ltd we provide bathroom adaptations to allow you to have full access to your home.  These alterations will make your life that little bit easier.  Furthermore, we will happily work alongside 3rd party companies (such as stairlift installers) to give you a complete adaptation of your home.  MS All Trades mainly do bathroom adaptations in Ayrshire and Glasgow but are able to travel to Edinburgh on request.

We can do work directly for you, as the owner-occupier, or for housing associations and local councils.  You can contact us for guidance on funding/vat-free eligibility.  If you are looking to get financial help to fund your bathroom adaptation, there is a wealth of knowledge and resources listed below.

Our Bathroom adaptations include accessible walk-in showers, installation of grab bars and carers screens as well as safety non-slip flooring and accessible toilets.  The showers we supply are thermostatic meaning they limit the temperature of the water to keep you safe.

We have examples of past projects below.  These give examples of the sort of things that can be done to make your house more accessible.

The benefits which mean an applicant is eligible for a 100% grant are:

  • Income Support.
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance.
  • Guaranteed Element of Pension Credit.
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance.

This bathroom adaptation was to allow the Tennant to use their bathroom with ease, as the raised shower and tight entranceway made it difficult and dangerous for her to live independently.  The width of the doorframe meant that she could not fit her walking frame through the door.  Along with this, the tight gap between the door and the radiator made it difficult to get in even without the frame.

We widened the door and changed the radiator for a towel rail which we moved to a more suitable position.  We also removed the raised shower and installed a wet room with walk-in shower to make access easier.  The use of the wall panels keeps the room watertight and makes it easier to keep clean.  We kept the original toilet and basin but removed the unnecessary pipe boxing to give more space.  All of the visible pipework and pipework through the floor was rerouted through the walls to keep the floor one single piece of vinyl (reducing chances of leaks).  We installed a low voltage extractor fan to extract the moisture and stop any chances of mould growth.  The light fitting is a low glare, fully diffused low voltage fitting which brightens the room up compared to the dim light that was there previously.
