Remodeling A Bathroom For Accessibility

Did you know that now more than ever, homeowners are opting to age in place rather than move? This means that significant changes must be made in the home to make it safe and comfortable. When talking about accessibility, often the focus is on the bathroom where slips and falls are the most common. Grab bars, and barrier-free showers are all standard amenities in accessible bathrooms that now have the ability to match your style.

These days, grab bars are as stylish as any other bathroom hardware,” Emily Hoefler, kitchen and bath designer at Renovations Group Inc., said. “and can coordinate with your plumbing fixtures. Having these features in place in a bathroom prepare you the possibility of needing accessibility while also adding style to your bathroom remodel.”
