Your current bathroom may work for you, but if you live with elderly parents or family members with limited mobility, that same space can seem like an obstacle course. Luckily, there are few simple and effective ways to make your bathroom safer and more accessible.
1. Consider a universal bathroom design. The basic premise of universal design is to create a bathroom that can safely accommodate all people regardless of their age or ability. A universal bathroom design usually comes with a smoother, more efficient layout that makes navigating the bathroom easier. Doorways are made wider to accommodate wheelchair users, and toilet heights are adjusted to make them less difficult to get on and off. Vanities also tend to be wall mounted to provide knee space while floors are made to be slip-resistant.
2. Install a walk-in shower. A conventional tub is not always the safest choice for older adults or people with limited mobility. To ensure great comfort and accessibility, go for a walk-in shower instead. Elite Bathrooms LuxStone of Long Island offers high-quality KOHLER® LuxStone® shower systems that can meet this particular need. Aside from their sleek and stylish design, they come with a low threshold for a safer entry. What’s more, you have the option to integrate a shower bar and seat for ease of accessibility.
3. Try adding a walk-in tub. We get it – the luxury and comfort of a long bath can’t be beat. Even so, you’ll want to make your every bathing experience both enjoyable and safe. Check out the exceptional KOHLER walk-in tubs offered by Elite Bathrooms LuxStone of Long Island. They have extra-wide doors for worry-free entry and exit, and a wide seat for extra protection and for accommodating various sitting positions. Not only that, but our walk-in tubs can be customized with slip-proof surfaces and fitted with handrails both inside and outside the tub.
