Sarah and Angela have lived together in Warminster for many years. They wanted to update their home and look at ways to improve the bathroom due to their mobility.
They decided to redecorate their bedrooms, and after approaching Golden Lane Housing they were excited to find out they were able to get their sparkling new wet room though the Planned Maintenance Programme.
“The bath didn’t get used as Sarah and I had trouble getting in and out of it,” says Angela. “I even had trouble stepping into the shower cubicle which wasn’t ideal for me.”
Sarah and Angela explain, “The occupational therapist did an assessment of our bathroom but were unable to fund a wet room as they felt that we could still get in and out of the shower without assistance. We were really happy when we found out that Golden Lane Housing were going to change it into a wet room.
We looked through Golden Lane Housing’s choices brochure and choose which style of wall tile.
The work was going to take a week to complete, so we decided to have a holiday in Weymouth. After finding out the date, we booked a hotel with a sea view. We had a great time, lots of fun!
When we got back we had a new wet room. It’s made a big difference. The layout has changed so the sink and toilet are near the door and shower at the back. There are no steps, and it’s a big area. We’re really pleased.”
Sarah says, “Look at our bedrooms! The staff painted them purple, because that’s the colour we like. The carpets were quite worn so we’ve had new ones put down, they’re lovely. I’ve bought new furniture which goes really well in my room, I like the colour and the mirror in my wardrobe. I’ve given a chest of draws to Angela which goes well with her furniture.”
Angela says, “We’ve got a great new wet room and our bedrooms look lovely. Next year, we’re going to look at redecorating the lounge.”
