We have to redesign our restrooms when we begin to age, as our mobility will not be as good and, therefore, many inconveniences can arise. The most simple bathroom design techniques are often the best ones to implement and make an immediate difference. Here, we have compiled a few items of note, that we feel can help our members significantly in the long term.
Installing a Shower Seat
That’s right folks, you can sit down while you shower! How great would it be to not have to worry about a fall during a shower, and also having a more comfortable set up! We love this idea, and we are sure you will benefit from it. You can even find them at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Heated Bathroom Floor
So, you get up one night to go to the bathroom, and you are immediately brought out of your slumber by a freezing cold tile floor. Not fun. That is why we have had this done to many of our properties across the country. Installing the tile is easy, but for the heating elements beneath, you will need an electrician. This is easy enough, but whether it is worth the cost is entirely up to you. Perhaps a bit more of a vanity operation, some homeowner may opt for an easier comfort setting before doing this. We say, if you can afford it- do it!
Install A Phone Near The Toilet
This may sound a bit crazy, but we assure you it is not. You never know when or where you might fall and not get back up. While in your home, you may not have your cellphone with you, but you want to make sure you are able to quickly call someone when you need to. That is where a simple phone set up near the toilet will come in handy. Just call the phone company and you will be quickly get this done, and it will not cost much either.
