Are you looking to remodel your bathroom to improve its accessibility and/or safety? Good news, you don’t have to do it while sacrificing style. There are a range of safety fixtures and design improvements that can be added to an existing bathroom space:
- Widening Doorways: To improve bathroom accessibility for individuals with mobility issues or those in wheelchairs, doorways can be widened to anywhere from 32 – 36 inches. Depending on your bathroom’s location and the type of access you require, this range can be adjusted.
- Accessible Toilets: There are a range of accessories to improve your toilets accessibility. These include grab bars in a variety of styles and finishes and bidet seats.
- Accessible Sinks and Vanities: There’s also a range of sink and vanity options for homeowners with limited mobility options or those who need the use of a wheelchair. Products include faucets with sensor or touch activation, pedestal sinks, and lowered vanities.
- Anti-Slip Flooring: Slip-resistant flooring is crucial in designing an accessible bathroom. May brands offer anti-slip flooring in multiple styles, colors, and materials to accompany your bathroom’s style.
- Bathtub and Shower Safety Features: The shower and/or bathtub is an area of the bathroom that can be especially difficult for individuals with limited mobility to use. Consider installing multiple safety features like grab bars, slip-resistant flooring, curb-free shower bases, and hand shower.
