Essential Bathroom Remodeling Projects for Aging-in-Place
As we begin to age, we realize there are certain parts of the home that need some remodeling. If aging-in-place is at the forefront of your mind, you may want to start your home remodeling in a room that you spend a lot of time in—your bathroom.
Navigating a renovation can be time consuming, but creating a safe and accessible environment for your future self should be a top priority. Here are a few bathroom remodeling project ideas for your bathroom:
Install Good Lighting
Standard lighting can be located on ceilings or up high on walls, which makes light bulb replacements difficult and tedious. Because of this, you may want to consider installing lights lower on the walls, or even under shelving. This way, they are easily reachable, and small nooks and crannies can be lit up. Investing in more accessible lighting fixtures is a great way to ensure you have a well-illuminated bathroom that can be easily navigated at all times of the day and night.
Install Bathroom Safety Products
Bathroom accessibility and safety are two huge factors for you to consider if you’re aging-in-place. Installing bathroom safety products and accessories can help with this.
Here are a few products to consider having installed:
- In-shower seating
- Handheld shower heads
- Slip-resistant flooring
- Wide, low-entry thresholds
To help ensure a secure bathing experience, these features can be installed in and around your bathtub or shower.
