Adapting Your Home For Disability

Adapting Your Home For Disability

Adapting your home to accommodate someone with a disability is an important step to ensure their safety and independence. Disability home adaptations can vary greatly depending on the individual’s specific needs, but there are some general considerations that can be made to make any home more accessible.

If you or a loved one is based in Colchester Essex and requires disability home adaptations, Cube Installations can help. They offer a wide range of services to help make your home more accessible, from stairlifts and grab rails to bathroom and kitchen adaptations.

Here are some key areas to consider when adapting your home for someone with a disability:

  1. Accessibility

The first step is to ensure that the home is easily accessible for someone with a disability. This may mean installing ramps or lifts to provide wheelchair access, or widening doorways to allow for easier movement. Cube Installations can assess your home and provide recommendations for accessibility improvements.

  1. Bathroom adaptations

The bathroom can be a particularly challenging area for someone with a disability, but there are many adaptations that can be made to make it safer and more accessible. This may include installing grab rails, a walk-in shower, or a raised toilet seat.

  1. Kitchen adaptations

The kitchen is another area that may require adaptations to make it more accessible. This may include lowering worktops or installing adjustable cabinets, as well as ensuring that appliances are positioned at a height that is easy to reach.

  1. Stairlifts

Stairs can be a significant obstacle for someone with a disability, but installing a stairlift can make a huge difference. Stairlifts can be tricky to install, so it’s best to rely on a professional service. There are many government grants available to help with the cost.

  1. Grab rails

Grab rails can be installed throughout the home to provide additional support and stability. This may include rails in the bathroom, or in other areas where additional support is needed. Grab rails are an essential safety feature for anyone with reduced mobility.

  1. Bathroom Hoists

Installing a hoist within the bathroom can provide a safe and secure way to transfer someone from their wheelchair into the bath or shower. This is an especially important adaptation for those who require assistance when bathing.


In summary, disability home adaptations can greatly improve the quality of life for someone with a disability. Cube Installations can help with all aspects of home adaptations, from accessibility improvements to bathroom and kitchen adaptations to the installation of stairlifts and grab rails. By working with Cube Installations, you can ensure that your home is safe, comfortable, and accessible for all.
