According to a recent study by the VDS (German Sanitation Industry), 88% of the population would like age-appropriate bathroom furnishings.
In regards to the long lifetime of a bathroom, many people, including those in their younger years, are concerned with how the bathroom can adapt to future stages of their lives and meet a growing need for comfort, practicality and safety. In this context, comfort is not an age-related issue – it enhances the quality of life for people of all ages.
How safe you feel in your own home contributes significantly to your feeling of well-being. Night-light programs, like those used in the mirror cabinets in different Duravit furniture series, as well as the SensoWash® shower-toilet seat, provide sufficient orientation and safety in the dark.
With a light brighter than 200 lux, the body enters waking mode. For this reason, it is better to use a special LED night light that enables users to safely find their way around when it’s dark without interrupting the body’s repose.
Duravit counters the danger of slipping on wet surfaces with targeted measures, such as steps for baths that enhance safety and facilitate entry and exit.
All Duravit shower trays are also available with an anti-slip coating. Thanks to this transparent but effective coating, feet gain a more secure hold in the shower.
The X-Large mobile storage units are practical aids in everyday life and, as flexible upholstered seats, provide practical storage space.
The DuraStyle bench with cushion provides an opportunity to rest and relax. Large, integrated drawers can be used to store towels and bathroom accessories.
Shower trays that fit flush with the floor offer maximum comfort and are even wheelchair-accessible. In conjunction with the OpenSpace shower partition that can be folded back against the wall, they offer even greater comfort.
The Starck Slimline shower trays measuring up to 180 x 90 cm also offer ample space with a reduced rim height of 20 mm.
Console basins provide sufficient legroom for comfortable use of the washing area, even when seated.
Particularly flat washbasin models, such as the Vero washbasin, which measures only 165 mm in height, are wheelchair-friendly and also meet discerning design requirements.
The Starck 3 wall-mounted toilet offers a five centimeter higher seated position that makes it easier for the user to stand up after using the toilet. It uses existing connections, making it ideal for renovation projects. For tall people and all those looking to make life easier as they grow older, the higher wall-mounted toilet offers a better sitting position +50.
Starck 3 also features a barrier-free wall-mounted WC. When a urinal is installed, it’s not even necessary to sit down and stand up.
