Regardless of your age, it’s important to think about what you can do to make your bathroom safe as well as functional so you can thrive in your space now and into the future. At Callen Construction, our talented designers are eager to help you convert your bathroom into a space that’s beautifully safe. In this post, we’ll cover a few of the upgrades that can be made when you work with a Callen design professional for a bathroom remodeling project.
Ways to Make Your Bathroom Space Both Safe & Inviting
By removing obstacles and improving accessibility, Callen can provide bathroom upgrades that you’re sure to love. Here, we cover a few things you should keep in mind as you strive to make your bathroom space not only functional but also beautifully safe.
- Choose an adjustable showerhead. In order to meet changing mobility needs, showerheads should be positioned on a slide bar that allows the sprayer to be easily raised or lowered to suit the height and position most comfortable for the user.
- Make sure there’s plenty of light. Falls in the home are a very real concern, which is why a safe bathroom needs to have multiple light sources to help reduce dangerous visual effects like glare and shadows. This, in turn, will minimize the risk of slip-and-fall injuries.
- Install slip-resistant flooring. The tub and/or shower floor should have an anti-slip coating to further prevent falls, and the flooring material in the rest of the bathroom should be slip-resistant as well. In addition, it’s wise to avoid the use of throw rugs in the bathroom — they are a tripping hazard. If you feel you must have a rug, choose one that has a low pile and secure it to the floor with anti-slip rug tape.
- Levers over knobs. Choose shower and faucet fixtures that have levers rather than knobs for easier operation. It’s also a good idea for all baths and showers to have thermostatic controls to reduce the risk of burns.
