How do we price mobility bathrooms?
We price our mobility bathrooms based on different factors, including your personal preferences, the dimensions of your bathroom, and the size of your chosen walk-in bath, wet room or walk-in shower. As our valued customer, we don’t want you to overpay for what you need, which is why you won’t find specific prices on our website.
For example, the size of your chosen bath, wet room or walk-in shower will impact the cost, with larger bathroom installations naturally coming with a bigger price tag. Meanwhile, the safety features, such as grab bars, you add to your bathroom will affect the price.
The layout of your current bathroom is also a factor. In some cases, it might be easier to install a new bath, shower or wet room in the same position as your current installation due to the position of the pipes, while other installations may require a complete reposition that opens up more floor space.
How much does a walk-in shower cost?
The final cost of your walk-in shower varies based on your product selection, including the size of the shower tray, along with other specific features. For instance, our Refresh walk-in shower provides a convenient aqua board option for easy cleaning, which is available in a range of stylish colours.
Also, our accessible walk-in showers offer customisation in terms of seating options, doors, enclosure types, grab rails, and access methods. Any combination of these choices can impact the overall cost of a walk-in shower.
How much does a walk-in bath cost?
We offer a wide range of stylish walk-in baths at different price points, suiting different budgets and needs. However, all of our mobility baths feature low-level access and optional safety features. At Premier Care in Bathing, we value your comfort and safety over anything else.
When it comes to walk-in bath costs, it depends on your chosen bath’s size either a full-length bathtub or compact bathtub. The shape, and door opening, as well as any add-on luxury options that you choose, such as spa jets and hydrotherapy, will influence the cost of the installation, significantly.
No matter your budget, we’ll create a bathroom that’s tailored to your specific needs. Choose from compact tubs for smaller rooms, full-length baths like our Empower walk-in bath, to walk-in baths with built-in seating – we’ll walk you through the entire process and explain your options with full transparency on pricing.
How much does a disabled wet room cost?
Wet rooms are the easiest-to-access feature for any mobility bathroom, making them ideal for wheelchairs and other mobility aid users. Like all types of accessible bathroom features, the cost of a disabled wet room depends on the fittings you choose, its size, and your existing bathroom layout.
During our detailed survey, we’ll find out whether you need extra space to allow access for carers, and we’ll ask whether you have personal preferences over the design of your future bathroom.
It’s your wet room, which means everything from the shower enclosure to the floor and wall coverings is your choice. We want your wet room to work perfectly for you. That’s why our free survey is an important part of the pricing process, as it’ll help us determine your bespoke price.
Options for keeping the cost low
Customised mobility bathrooms can increase your quality of life. But if you’re still worried about the cost, don’t worry – there are ways to keep the cost low. Firstly, if you’re living with a disability or chronic illness, you won’t have to pay VAT on the cost of your mobility bathroom or the installation fee.
We go through a short survey to make sure you are eligible when putting together the cost of a disabled wet room, but that would save you a generous 20% on the total price.
To keep installation costs down, we recommend asking yourself key questions before making a financial commitment. Do you need a functional bathroom for quick and efficient washing? Would you prefer a lavish bathroom designed for indulgence? Or perhaps you're aiming for something in between?
In some cases, you can save money by choosing the essential features you only need. However, it’s important to guarantee that carers have enough room to adopt the necessary positions and postures when carrying out safe moving and handling methods. This is especially vital in zones where they might be aiding in transfers, such as those adjacent to the toilet.
Moreover, there should be ample functional space in the bathroom for situations where the carer may need to crouch or position themselves suitably to aid in drying, attending to the person's hygiene requirements, or helping with dressing.
Whether you’re in the early stages of thinking about replacing your tub with a walk-in shower, a walk-in bath or a wet room, or you’re already committed to the idea, Premier Care in Bathing’s free customer survey is your first step towards a mobility bathroom that works for you.
As we’ve mentioned, we can’t provide set-in-stone mobility bathroom prices on our website. Instead, we offer a free, no-commitment bathroom design and survey.
This will take into account your specific needs when it comes to bathing, the size and shape of your bathroom, your personal preferences and safety features, and, of course, the final look and luxurious touches that will make your new disabled wet room a pleasure to spend time in.

Why invest in a mobility bathroom?
While a mobility bathroom may entail a slightly higher initial cost compared to a standard bath or shower suite, it's important to weigh the benefits. Here are five reasons to consider installing one:
Many individuals with disabilities rely on assistance to use the bathroom. With a mobility bathroom, you can often regain your autonomy and dignity, allowing you to independently access and use the facilities.
Navigating a standard bathroom can be difficult for those with mobility limitations. But a mobility bathroom is equipped with specialised features designed to enhance safety, providing you with better preparedness should any accidents happen. Exploring options like grab bars is a good starting point.
Easy to use
For the elderly and individuals with mobility challenges, using a standard bathroom can be quite demanding. In contrast, a mobility bathroom is tailored to accommodate specific mobility requirements, ensuring a more convenient and comfortable experience.
Mobility bathrooms are typically designed with ease of cleaning in mind, making them easier to clean than standard bathrooms. This means that, in addition to regaining confidence in using the bathroom independently, you'll also find it more manageable to maintain its cleanliness without help.
Tailored solutions available
Individuals may face a wide range of disabilities and mobility challenges. Fortunately, our mobility bathrooms offer a higher degree of customisation compared to standard options, making it easier to find a solution that caters to your specific needs.
