It’s common knowledge that the bathroom is where accidents occur most frequently in the home. In fact, more than a third of at-home injuries occur in the bathtub or shower. And, while such accidents can affect anyone, elderly individuals, as well as those with mobility restrictions, are particularly vulnerable. In this article, we’ll explore how to make your bathroom safer for your entire family, regardless of your needs and budget.
Add Bathroom Safety Features
If remodeling a bathroom to enhance safety isn’t in your budget right now, there are still a variety of affordable upgrades you can make. The most common cause of injury is slips and falls in the tub or shower. To prevent this, you should apply a non-slip flooring mat on the base of the tub or shower. Additionally, you may want to consider having a grab bar installed by a professional, which will help keep you and your loved ones steady while entering and exiting a tub. Additionally, if someone in your household has mobility restrictions or has difficulty standing for long periods, you can purchase a portable, waterproof seat with non-slip footing.
Remodel Your Bathroom with Safety in Mind
If you’re planning to have your bathroom remodeled, it’s the perfect opportunity to make it safer. For example, features such as multiple grab bars, non-slip flooring, and seating can be built directly into your new tub or shower and tend to be more durable than add-on products. To make the most of your safety upgrade, it’s important to work with a bathroom remodeling company that provides custom service. The contractor you choose should work closely with you to develop safety solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of your family members. For example, if you have concerns about a member of your household having to step over a high tub wall to enter and exit the shower, your remodeling company should be able to install a low-entry shower system that will significantly reduce the possibility of tripping.
