Bath Express Installations Are Great for Aging in Place
Bathrooms need renovations for many reasons, but an increasingly popular option is to remodel a bathtub and the surrounding area for homeowners who want to keep using it – but who also have different needs and concerns as they age. For these homeowners, we suggest our Express installation options, a specific Quality Craftsmen service that provides speedy bath remodeling so you can get back to using your bathroom in as little as one day. Here’s what you should know.
What is Aging in Place All About?
As many homeowners grow older, they want to keep their homes and live in comfort as long as possible: They put many years of hard work into making those homes just how they liked, and they have become the ideal retirement locations! Fortunately, today’s modern conveniences and technology make this possible for aging homeowners, but some changes may be required.
The phrase “aging in place” indicates homeowners that want to keep on living in their homes, but also need to make modifications for safety, comfort, and livability. The bathroom is one of the most common targets for these remodeling projects.
Idea One: Getting Rid of Curbs and Barriers
So how do you change a bathtub for aging in place? First, many people choose to get rid of curbs and barriers. Often, this can mean changing a bathtub to a shower, or modifying the tub so that it’s easier to use. This makes getting in and out easier and reduces the chances of falling. Other barriers may be taking up too much space or making the bath less usable, and should also be removed.
Idea Two: Installing Grab Bars and Shower Seats
Another common renovation is to remodel a shower to include grab bars and shower seats. Grab bars in handy locations make getting in or out of the shower easier and can provide important support for those who may have difficulty moving in tight shower spaces. Shower seats are another option for those who can easily stand for significant periods of time but still want the convenience of a shower.
We can also provide different kinds of non-slip surfaces that make getting a grip easier even when the tub is wet, making slips less likely even if you don’t need anything to hold onto!
Idea Three: Accessorizing Your Bathroom
A bathroom renovation is also a great time to add built-in accessories like soap dishes, new or extra showerheads, shower caddies, and other various options. Think about what your bathroom may be missing and what you can add for greater convenience.
