Best Disabled Toilet award

So far the best disabled toilet I have seen is at the Lido Centre in West Ealing.

A number of features make it great.

  • sliding door
  • plenty of room
  • adult changing bed
  • lots of support rails
  • mirror not seen whilst on toilet
  • hoist

However I still have a bug bear about low height sinks. In a wheelchair they’re great, but when I’m on sticks (which is most of the time), it can be quite uncomfortable to bend down so low to wash my hands.

I ask disabled bathroom designers to please consider making a dual height sink or simply installing two small sinks at different heights.

What have been your favourite disabled bathrooms and your worst?
