The bathroom is one of the most dangerous rooms in your house, and it only becomes more dangerous as you age and your mobility gets compromised. It is important to take precautionary measures to ensure that you stay safe within your own home. A little bit of renovation can go a long way in keeping you safe years into the future.
One of the most cost effective changes you can make is to add a slip resistant coating to the floor. This will allow you to keep your existing flooring, but it will make it so you are less likely to slip thanks to a coating that helps your feet grip. This is an excellent investment in keeping yourself and your family safe in the bathroom.
Another precaution to consider is to add grab bars around your bathroom to help you maneuver around the room. These bars are most practical near the toilet, bath or shower, and the sink. They will make it easier for you to sit or stand when need be, and will also help you stay upright as you move around the room. This is another fairly inexpensive change that can do wonders for your safety and health.
Finally it is important to consider adding a walk in tub to your bathroom to promote safe bathing. Why risk injury in your bath if you don’t have to? A walk in tub is easy to get in and out of, and also comes with a slip resistant floor and seat. You can also add luxurious features such as water and air jets that massage the body and do wonders for your physical and mental health. Though adding a walk in tub is a more expensive proposition that grab bars and slip resistant floors, it is an excellent investment in your home and your health.
A few simple additions to your bathroom can help you prevent serious slip and fall injuries in the future. Consider adding a walk in tub, slip resistant floors, and grad bars to ensure years of enjoyment in your home to come. Call Independent Home for your walk in tub needs!
