Cross-generation bathroom – design for all

The bathroom of tomorrow, which is already making an impact

Life consists of change: children come along, and the issue of having a "child-friendly" home raises its head. Or a sports accident turns your apartment into a place of obstacles that you never before contemplated. If nothing else, getting old makes you conscious of the fact that life's changes necessitate an appropriate transformation in your living environment – the children have flown the nest, and as you get older you need maximum convenience in your bathroom because everyday life presents new challenges. The concept of the cross-generation bathroom is based on the desire to make life in the bathroom easier and more convenient for all age groups to handle water.
