Everyone likes a shower that is easy to get into, use and exit; you don’t have to have mobility issues to appreciate their ease of use. The popular low-threshold showers of today have a spa-like feel as well, adding to their appeal.

It’s called future-proofing you bathroom; a little more investing at the planning stage of a new bathroom will serve you and your home well in years to come. Future-proofing a bathroom doesn’t mean just an age-friendly design, but also one that is safe, healthy and functional for all family members at any stage of life.

Careful selection of your bathroom furniture, fixtures and hardware makes a bathroom user-friendly for all stages of life. Adding a seat in a shower makes grooming more comfortable, and built-in niches in the shower walls, perhaps at more than one level, make accessing shower items easy.
