This course covers key issues relating to the adaptation and design of accessible bathrooms and aims to provide delegates with essential knowledge and skills needed to work confidently and effectively in this area. It is a stand-alone course and can be attended on its own or in tandem with Bathroom Adaptation & Design: Part 2

The Bathroom Adaptation & Design course was originally a full-day face-to-face course. As it is now being delivered online, it has simply been split into two parts (Part 1 and Part 2) in order to avoid excessive screen time for the attendees.


  • Be able to discuss a range of client considerations relating to bathrooms and understand how these can influence the adaptation or design of a scheme
  • Be able to problem-solve key access, egress and circulation issues relating to bathrooms
  • Be familiar with optimum layouts and space standards for bathrooms, such as: dry zones & wet zones; transfer spaces around wc pans, baths & showers; space required for carers; peninsular v corner layouts for WCs
  • Have increased awareness of recommended heights and positioning for bathroom fixtures, fittings and appliances – including the use of lighting in relation to wayfinding & navigation
  • Understand how to measure up individual wheelchair users for turning spaces (turning circles) within bathrooms
  • Have experience of problem solving bathroom adaptation issues within a group setting, through discussion and case studies
