5 Way To Improve Accessibility In Your Bathroom

5 Way To Improve Accessibility In Your Bathroom

If you’re looking to improve accessibility in your bathroom, then good news: there are many ways that you can modify your bathroom to improve mobility. Check out these five ideas.  

Install A Walk-In Tub

Walk-in tubs are a special kind of bath with a door opening at the side. With a walk-in tub, you can walk right in and don’t have to climb over the edge. Many walk-in baths come with in-built seats that allow you to rest in the sitting position more comfortably. 

Mount Hand Rails

Handrails next to the bath, toilet, and shower can help if a person using the bathroom has difficulty standing up unassisted or balancing while maneuvering. Bars are an inexpensive and effective way to improve your current mobility situation.

Install A Zero-threshold Shower

Most shower cubicles use a threshold to keep water from spilling out over the bathroom floor. But you can also buy special showers that don’t have a lip and instead angle the water back to the drain, eliminating the trip hazard. 

Upgrade The Bathroom Sink

Sometimes it can be a challenge to see which is the hot faucet, and which is the cold. Elderly or those with sight loss may benefit from an upgrade to the bathroom sink that makes tap labeling clearer and easier to read. 

Install A Non-Slip Mat

Bathroom floors can become slippery when wet, especially tiled and vinyl floors. The good news is that non-slip mats are affordable and effective, helping to keep people safe as they use the facilities.
