Universal Design in the Bathroom

Universal Design.  It is a concept that has taken hold in the residential and commercial building and remodeling industry.  What is it?  It is a design philosophy in which products and environments, whether residential or commercial, are usable by people regardless of their age, gender, size, or physical abilities.  It also encompasses the idea that products and environments need not be visually unattractive to be functional.  In fact, they should be appealing to the eye as well as functional.

When a house or commercial structure is developed with the universal design philosophy, it means that the construction will be adaptable to its users’ needs for a very long time, even as its users advance in age and their physical abilities diminish. In a bathroom, this is extremely important, as it is one of the rooms in a house or structure that will always be used, regardless of any other changes that may come about. Even more specifically, a universally designed shower room, with a LUXE linear drain installed, provides the kind of form and functionality that is increasingly in demand as populations age.
