Bathroom Safety Features
Home remodeling is the perfect way to enhance the safety of the bathroom. With the help of a professional remodeling company, homeowners can take steps to enhance the safety features of the bathroom in a way that accidents such as slips and falls can be prevented. This is even more important if there are children or senior citizens in the family, who may be more prone to such accidents. Here are some steps that our remodeling experts from AAA Remodeling Company recommend to increase the safety of the bathroom.
Low-Threshold Showers and Walk-In Tubs
Research shows that more than a third of accidents that occur in a bathroom happen while showering or bathing. With a low-threshold shower and walk-in tub, you can make the bathroom safer, not just for people with restricted mobility, but for everyone else in the family as well.
Slip Resistant Flooring
A large number of injuries that occur in the bathroom occur as a result of a slip and fall on wet floors. More accidents occur while stepping out of the shower or tub than while stepping into the bath. Consider upgrading the flooring and increasing the traction. There are many flooring options with an anti-slip finish available in the market.
Safety Grab Bars
Install safety bars in the bath tub, shower, and near the toilet to offer support, stability and prevent falls. This is particularly important in bathrooms that are used by senior citizens.
