✔ Stop the Slipping

Between the shower, bathtub, and sink, there are plenty of sources of water in the bathroom. With this water comes the increased chances of slipping and falling, whether in the wet area or outside of them. Lay non-skid mats or non-slip strips on the bathtub and shower floor, and reinforce bathroom rugs or mats with rubber-backed floor coverings that stay firmly in place.

✔ Get Low

Another way that people frequently injure themselves in the bathroom is by tripping over the ledge of their tubs. You can eliminate this risk by getting rid of the ledge altogether; opt for a walk-in shower or bathtub option with an ultra-low entry threshold.

✔ Grab Hold

Everyone can use an extra hand every now and then, or just something to grab onto. Create absolute stability by having grab bars and handles installed in your wet area, as well as throughout the rest of the bathroom.
