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.
Smart bathroom ideas for added safety
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.
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.
Well-designed drawers help to keep things tidy. Glass dividers and practical compartments help users keep track of what’s inside. In the Delos bathroom program, a new, intelligent, interior organization system in either walnut or maple ensures a particularly tidy and high-quality interior solution.
Mirrors in various widths adapt to the respective washing area and illuminate it to perfection. Mirror cabinets also offer practical features: the additional storage space at eye level, the integrated light and the mirrors on the inside of the doors are just some of the advantages. Integrated sockets and touch LED switches are also standard functions of Duravit products in all price categories.
