If you’re a baby boomer, you may be thinking of bathroom renovation ideas that will make the bathroom safer as you age. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Consider a low-threshold shower stall. There are standard sized shower stalls with very low entry thresholds and no lip on either side. This can make it much easier to enter or exit the shower without tripping or falling, which can be a major worry as you age.
Other features you will want to look for are: a non-slip finish on the floor, a seat and built in grab bars. The seat will become desirable if you begin to have difficulty standing for long periods or suffer from dizzy spells. Grab bars that are built in will provide something sturdy for you to hold on to while you’re in the shower.
If the shower doesn’t have integrated grab bars, you will want to be sure your bathroom remodeler installs them or plans the layout of your bathroom in a way that will make later installation of grab bars easy. You should never rely on a towel rack as a substitute for true grab bars because they are not designed to handle the full weight of a falling adult and they may come loose from the wall.
Grab bars don’t have to be ugly or industrial looking. Many manufacturers offer a variety of attractive grab bars that offer safety and beauty.
