If you’re staying in your place decades from now, it’s wise to upgrade the busiest areas of your home. This includes investing in a bathroom remodel with accessibility and comfort in mind.
Contrary to what most people believe, age-proofing your bathroom doesn’t make it look dull. In fact, it can give a unique spa-like experience that family members of all ages will surely enjoy. More importantly, this heightens everyone’s safety.
Install a Handheld Shower Head. Handheld shower heads make bathing easier by helping you direct water where you need it. They are easily adjustable, which allows you to wash up while seated. There are low-flow handheld showerheads available, such as those that feature special aerators, that can help cut your water consumption.
Go Curbless. Curbless showers improve the accessibility of your bathroom and maximize its space. By removing the step between the shower stall and bathroom floor, family members with mobility problems can easily navigate the space. To further increase safety, consider installing grab bars and slip-proof tile floors.
Increase the Height of Your Vanity. Most of the time, the standard vanity height isn’t high enough for everyone. Raising the height of your custom cabinets will keep you from having to hunch over while you’re washing up.
Add a Shower Bench. Having a safe place to sit in the shower is crucial. This not only reduces the time you spend standing, but this minimizes the likelihood of slipping and falling as well. You may opt for a built-in or freestanding bench. If you’re not used to sitting on a hard surface, however, you can use waterproof seat cushions instead. Be sure that your bench is big enough to ensure comfort.
