No need to sacrifice style

We've seen many ways to update bathrooms, but very few of those ideas cover an update for aging adults. As an aging adult, lifestyle changes are bound to occur due to health and mobility. This doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your ideas for how your home should look or keep yourself from those personal touches to your space.

It may seem as though you have to change a great many things around you, but it may not be as bad as you believe. One of the major areas that may need changes is your bathroom. It is, by far, the most dangerous area in the home when it comes to injury. The slippery surfaces coupled with the accumulated objects in the bathroom that may hold this and that are all a danger to be around if you fall.

So what can you do to update your bathroom while still maintaining a stylish look?

The first thing that you should be able to do is bathe in safety. If you're not interested in something like a walk in tub, you can have an easy access shower put in. This will allow you to maintain your freedom, great taste, and easy bathing. Don't forget those dual showerheads. Allow for one of those shower heads to be hand held for easier bathing. Adding a rail inside the shower for better balance is also a great idea.

You should also clear away all of your clutter by using shelves and baskets that can be mounted to the walls. This will keep the floor area clear of items that could cause tripping as well as giving your bathroom a well-tended look. Also, consider using only those rugs that have "no slip" gripping pads on the bottom. Not only can rugs soak up excess water, but with the no slip backs you can avoid a bunched up rug that can cause tripping.
