Bathrooms are one of the dos important and functional rooms in any home. Unfortunately, they can also be a serious safety risk—over 200,000 people visit the hospital each year due to bathroom-related accidents and injuries, according to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The risk of bathroom accidents is even greater for seniors, infants, and people with mobility issues.
Luckily, there are many simple changes you can make to your bathroom to make it safer and more comfortable for everyone in your household. Here are some remodeling ideas to make your bathroom more accessible from the experts at Mattioni Plumbing.
Getting in and out of the bathtub can be a challenge for seniors or people with mobility issues. Walk-in bathtubs allow you to enjoy the soothing comfort of a nice bath without the worry of slipping and falling before or afterwards. With a few small renovations, it’s possible to have a walk-in bath or shower installed in your home.
Space and Lighting
One of the biggest reasons why bathrooms can become so dangerous is because the space is too confined. In a small space, it’s easier to hit your head or injure yourself on a nearby bathroom fixture. The risk of a slip-and-fall is significantly reduced in a larger space. If you’re having trouble maneuvering within your own bathroom, consider having it expanded. A more spacious bathroom is not only safer - it’s also more comfortable and will provide you with more room to relax.
Lighting can also have a big impact on your safety. If your bathroom doesn’t have adequate light, it’s easier to experience an accident. A few simple lighting renovations can make your bathroom much brighter and easier to navigate.
