Bathroom Remodels are typically referred to as "Bathroom Modifications" when addressing mobility and safety issues as the main purpose. However our background in Bathroom Remodeling helps us complete the entire package, while keeping safety first.
Bathrooms are one of the highest danger zones for anyone due to its natural "slippery" and often times wet, environment. Every bathroom should have safety measures, but as we age we need to consider even more.
Fortunately there are many ways to make a bathroom safer.
Increase height of commode
Use chair device with arm rails
Use non-slip grip pads for surfaces
Lower shower head handle wand for easy access
Use a shower chair
Increase bathroom lighting
Use multiple grab bars
Durable bathroom modifications are a must. Some products are sold and if not properly installed can have devastating results. Keep this in mind when shopping for grab bars and shower chairs.
When considering safety changes to your bathroom, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Everyone considers a budget when making changes to the home. That is just being reasonable! However, senior citizens tend to hold back making changes to their home because they are more concerned about resale value than their own safety. Meaning, they don't convert their old bathtub into a roll in shower because they are afraid it will lower the resale value of the home.
Real Estate statistics have disproven the rationale behind this behavior. They have found that most new home buyers like to customize their bathrooms and kitchens. So whether or not you have a tub or handicap accessible shower, your value is perceived the same to a potential buyer. This means your focus can be on making improvements that keep you safer!
Scalable bathroom modifications refers to making bathroom remodel decisions that allow you to achieve your long term goals. For example, if you have decided to live in your home but you or your spouse may need a wheelchair at some point, this should be considered in a renovation. Sometimes it makes sense to line up the toilet and the shower in a certain way in order to accommodate safety devices that are used for lifting and wheelchairs. Our expert bathroom modification designer can help you sort out the details and make the best use of your space for the long run.
