Feeling unsafe in your own bathroom is unnerving, but it’s also something that many homeowners cope with every day. The process of improving your bathroom’s accessibility to take back your independence starts with recognizing the areas of the room that are giving you the most trouble or making you the most uncomfortable.
Make a Plan to Remove Any Obstacles
When it comes to poor accessibility in the bathroom, the primary concern of most homeowners is the tub and/or shower. Unfortunately, these obstacles are slippery and were not traditionally designed for homeowners with mobility restraints. Over time, however, manufacturers have developed incredible bath and shower alternatives that are geared to improve accessibility and safety in the bathroom:
Invest in a Tub-to-Shower Conversion
This bathroom remodeling project involves removing a tub or tub/shower combo and replacing it with a walk-in shower system. The final product is a walk-in shower that features an ultra-low entry. Most walk-in showers can also be rigged with your choice of safety accessories, like grab bars and in-shower seating, to further increase bathroom accessibility.
Install a Walk-In Tub
Walk-in tubs are the perfect products for homeowners looking for a safer way to bathe. Designed with low thresholds, wide opening doors, and chair-height seating, these tubs are easy to use and extremely accessible.
