With an aging population and 1 in 10 people in the UK registered as having a disability, bathroom manufacturers are increasingly aware of the need for inclusive design products for the whole family, that work for all ages and abilities, without sacrificing style.

Accordingly, a new ‘ageless design’ website has been launched by the BMA (Bathroom Manufacturers Association) to provide helpful advice and product guidance for people who may need a few extra facilities in the bathroom, either for themselves or for a family member.

BMA CEO Yvonne Orgill says, “Bathing is an integral part of life and it is essential that those who need special care have easy access to properly equipped bathrooms to maintain self-respect and independence. But that doesn’t mean such bathrooms need to be utilitarian; www.agelessdesign.org.uk offers great ideas for the smallest to the most opulent of bathrooms, together with thoughtful suggestions for achieving the perfect mix of functional facilities and fabulous design.

With careful planning and the right products there is absolutely no reason why a new bathroom shouldn’t look stylish and meet the needs of everyone who uses it.”

The new ageless design website is easy to navigate and includes useful information on products and design, as well as installation and safety.

You can search for suitable items for your home and download fact sheets on a range of topics, such as how to choose a supplier, or a guide to the latest regulations.

The website is supported by BMA members who cater for this specialist market and includes best practice guidance and practical advice for anyone wanting to design an inclusive bathroom.

The BMA is an independent organisation representing over 80 manufacturing groups and 100+ brand in the UK.


Editors notes:
The multi award winning BMA, based at Keele’s Innovation Centre, is the trade association for bathroom manufacturers operating in the UK. It is the principal ‘Voice of the Bathroom Industry’ and acts as a hub for the industry, government, the EU and the consumer on issues that affect the bathroom business.

The BMA represents, through its technical, marketing and management committees, the interests of over 60 major bathroom manufacturing groups and service providers with over 100 well-known brands in the market place. The manufacturing base directly employs well over 10,000 people across 80+ sites around the UK.

National property and construction consultancy Wakemans has completed work on a new £ multi-million community facility in Tiddington near Stratford-upon-Avon.

Wakemans acted as quantity surveyor and employer’s agent on the project on behalf of developer Hayfield Homes.

Hayfield Homes is building 32 residential properties at the north eastern edge of the village and, as part of the development, has relocated the historic Home Guard Club to a purpose-built complex.

The new facility incorporates a sports pavilion with upgraded changing rooms, servery, bar and large function room. A balcony overlooks the playing fields, which have been redeveloped to support football, rugby and cycling. The contemporary buildings replace an outdated single storey, flat-roofed building – erected after the Second World War on land gifted to the private members club – which has been demolished.

Wakemans client services director James Shelley said: “The new complex adjoins the residential development and was made possible after the Home Guard Club sold a parcel of land to Hayfield Homes.

“As Tiddington expands, extra housing coupled with the latest sports and recreational facilities will help to strengthen the local community.”

The Home Guard Club is aiming to increase its membership and the new complex will do much to help secure its long-term future. The improved facilities will be used regularly by the local community for a variety of social and sports activities, including cycling, archery, football, rugby, snooker and darts.
