A shower can typically be the focal point of any bathroom. It can also be an incredibly dangerous area of the bathroom for those who are aging in place. On average, 640 people fall every day in the shower or tub.
One simple way to make your bathroom safer is to remove the threshold going into the shower. This is called a zero-entry shower or a Scandinavian shower and is the current trend for homeowners of all ages. It features a beautiful, sleek look but also adds accessibility too!
LiveWell just wrapped up a remodel on a bathroom that had a shower/tub combo. This is incredibly dangerous for aging homeowners because they have to swing their leg over the side of the tub in order to access the shower.
We installed a beautiful tile shower with grab bars for added safety. A new tile floor made this bathroom look so clean and fresh. A new vanity and higher toilet really finished it off for a modern look that is much safer for this homeowner. Not only did we give this bathroom a complete facelift, but the lighter colors also make it feel much larger!
