Accessible Bathrooms: 3 Aspects To Consider

Independence in the bathroom is one of the most challenging tasks for accessibility and safety in the home. No matter the disability, the bathroom is almost always one of the most challenging rooms to maneuver in. It is difficult to feel at home, let alone safe, if you don’t have secure access to your own bathroom. Achieving safety and independence with bathroom modifications is not only possible, but also:

Customizable. Modifying a bathroom is, by definition, a very personal project. It includes making alterations to a living space to meet the needs of physical limitations that people may be living with so that they can live a much more independent life. A customized bathroom space will depend on an individual’s needs, preferences, and space available.

Attractive. Accessibility doesn’t mean stark or institutional. An accessible bathroom can be as beautiful and luxurious as you can imagine it to be. Beautiful tile, stylish sinks and modern fixtures don’t have to be sacrificed and can easily accommodate accessibility, independence, and safety.

Safe. True accessible modifications are primarily focused on altering spaces for safe movement and creating a safe flow. Safety can range from something as simple as strategically placing a grab bar for balance to a full bathroom remodel.
