With the baby boom generation aging, Universal Design is becoming very popular, and not just for the boomers. Everyone enjoys an easily accessible shower, and the peace of mind that if anyone in the family ever has mobility issues, possibly due to that mountain biking crash, there would be no problem with bathing issues.
Seriously, we all can have an episode in our lives where we have foot surgery or some other health issue that makes it difficult to get into a tub/shower.
Grab bars, low threshold shower entries, a seat in the shower, and handshowers mounted on a sliding bar are easily adaptable to users of all sizes and works well no matter the mobility of family members.
Be sure to ask us about how to make your bathroom more accessible, the next time you have it remodeled. It won’t detract from the style, and you will be glad you did.
