The bathroom is an important part of your daily routine, and it's also one of the most dangerous rooms in the house. High thresholds and slippery floors can be challenging for those with mobility limitations. According to the CDC, over 235,000 adults visit the hospital yearly due to bathroom-related falls. Seniors or those with limited mobility are even more at risk of bathroom accidents. This often means relying on someone else to bathe them, which can affect their independence.
Turning your bathroom into a fully accessible space does not have to be a difficult task. There are many ways to upgrade your bathroom, from small and affordable solutions to full bathroom remodeling so you can enjoy independent bathing without worrying about the risk involved. Read on to learn more about the upgrades that make the most impact when it comes to making your bathroom more accessible.
If you or a household member has difficulty getting in and out of a standard bathtub, consider the benefits of a walk-in shower. A walk-in shower offers a safer bathing experience for those with mobility challenges. Our walk-in showers have a low barrier threshold that reduces the risk of falling while stepping in and out of the shower. You can also customize your shower with our sliding door options, built-in seating, caddies, grab bars, and more.
Roll-In/No Barrier Showers
For a safer and more comfortable bathroom that looks beautiful and modern, consider the roll-in showers from Bath Planet. We’ll help you eliminate hazardous shower barriers so you can bathe with confidence. Roll-in showers allow those in wheelchairs direct access to the shower, making it easy to transfer to a stool or bench for bathing. Your roll-in shower can also be customized with shower curtain rods instead of doors to make the shower area more accessible. Our shower curtain rods come in different finish options that will suit your bathroom’s aesthetics.
Grab Bars & Shower Seats
You will never have to struggle with slippery tubs again. Our walk-in and roll-in showers include accessories like safety grab bars and built-in seating for safety and accessibility. They also give you the ultimate convenience and relaxation you need while taking your bath. Your new tub and shower will be custom-fabricated for your needs, which means you can also choose your preferred style and accessories that will make your bathroom work best for you.
For those looking for how to make their bathing experience more calming and relaxing, walk-in tubs effectively combine safety with a spa-like experience. They usually come in a wide range of presentations and are designed for people with mobility issues. At Bath Planet, our walk-in tubs feature a small door that opens out and closes shut and a built-in seat that is strategically designed to the height and measurements of the user. These features help to reduce the risk of slips and falls when climbing in and out of a bathtub.
Get Accessibility Without Sacrificing Style
A mobility-friendly bathroom does not have to look boring and extremely clinical. At Bath Planet, our tubs, shower walls, and bases come in various colors and patterns, and can be customized with accessories that come in different finish options like polished chrome, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, and matte black. Our professional designers will help you choose the perfect look, while our experienced installers can get your remodeling done in one day.
