"I have some mobility problems so a safe and comfortable shower is essential for me.
Dave and his team transformed my tired, shabby standup ensuite into a wetroom which meets all my needs for safety, comfort and good looks.
Now I just walk in, sit down, switch on. Bliss!"

I am writing to say a very big thankyou to Dave & the team for the exceptional work that you carried out for us. You were truly professional in every way and have made a wonderful difference to our family life. I will not hesitate in recommending you. Looking forward to phase 2! Thankyou again so much! 

Thank you....  Couple of months later:

Phase Two: Once again thank you all for the wonderful job you have done at my home. You were truly professional and worked with the minimum of disruption or mess.

My life has been changed dramatically & I am managing my MS much better now, especially with not having to go up the stairs to my bedroom.

I would definitely have no problem whatsoever in recommending your company to other people.

With very many thanks once again,

Best Wishes,

My New Wet Room

I have managed MS for over 30 years.  I ‘ve had up's and down's with it, but with a bit of help from my friends and family, I‘ve kept it under control.  One problem Andy and I have had to cope with is bathing or showering safely.  We live in a house with 2 bathrooms, 1 en-suite, but neither of them has been easily accessible for my limited mobility.  When it became obvious that Andy should not carry on lifting me into and out of the shower cubicle we had to find a better long term solution.

We explored every option and consulted many ‘experts' for an answer to this long standing problem with not much help, and I wish that we had met Dave Tubbs and his colleagues a long time ago as they came up with all the answers from the start.  

We saw a flyer from Mobility Homestyle when Mainstream landed on the doormat in October.  We were in the process of talking to Anchor about the possibility of adapting the en-suite into a shower toilet, but neither of us was comfortable with the long term implications of such a conversion as we are still harbouring ambitions to move house in the future.  So, this seemed a timely moment to talk to them and get any other ideas on the problem.  We made a phone call and the team sprung into action!  We soon had all the quotes for the en-suite adaptations, but we still had qualms about the toilet/shower idea, so we talked to the team again and floated the idea of converting the main bathroom into a wet room.   We needed more space to do it properly and the solution that we came up with was to take a bit out of one of the bedrooms and extend the bathroom by 3ft.  This still left a reasonable 4th bedroom and would also give us a family bathroom without having make alterations, which neither of us would be truly happy with.

 

 

The team came back again and re-measured and talked to us about fitting out the wet room to our tastes.  We had meetings with Andy the plumber, David the tiler, and Robin the flooring specialist, along with Dave Tubbs, who in between the talks renovated my wheelchair ramp.  They came up with lots of suggestions and directed us to a number of bathroom showrooms to get some ideas for our project.  We spent a few weekends choosing taps, tiles and a very plush body drier, which is a real treat every morning!

Once the final plans were agreed the work started and everyone geared up for a finish before Christmas.  The hardest part for us was clearing out the clutter gathered over the last 15 years in the spare bedroom!

Monday 8th December arrived and by the end of that day one wall had been knocked down and the bathroom as knew it was no more.  There was no going back now!!

We had no need for any worries, we were kept informed at every stage and any disruptions to power or heat were kept to a minimum.  All we had to do was supply tea/coffee and the odd choccie biscuit.  By the end of the second week our new bathroom was complete and we had a spanking new fully accessible wet room for all of the family to enjoy.

For us, this was a big change, but the whole thing was made as easy as possible by the team at Mobility Homestyle, whose professionalism and care was evident from the start to finish.  We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is thinking about making alterations or adaptations to their property. 

This wet room has made so much difference to my life.  I am able to get showered in comfort without worrying about being lifted, or Andy hurting himself.

 Now I am working on a new idea.   Making my kitchen just as accessible!!
