Accessible Bathroom Remodel 

To really get a feel for us and our work. We’d like to walk you through our considerations for an accessible bathroom remodel. We focus on using universal design principles. Universal design means that the details of space work for people of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities. We want to fully understand how you will use the space to make it most accessible for you. These aren’t cookie-cutter solutions crafted for each individual. We believe that different needs require different solutions. Universal design may be the goal, but our accessible remodels are not uniform.

Low-Barrier and Zero-Barrier Showers

In an accessible bathroom remodel, many clients require updates to use their toilet, shower, or bath. Low-barrier and zero-barrier shower conversions are critical to the process. Cleanliness is vital to remaining physically and emotionally healthy, and accessing a shower is the first stage. The entire shower needs to be functional and safe. 

Home Design Safety Features

Wall nooks create space for storage of shampoo and soap bottles out of the way. These stylish niches into the wall are safer than hanging storage, which may be out of reach or free-standing shower shelves. When considering the showerhead, it’s helpful to have a handheld wand in addition to a fixed showerhead. A handheld shower head supports more accessibility needs if your circumstances change. When selecting materials, it’s crucial that the areas that get wet, like the shower floor and the bathroom floor, use small tiles. Small tiles mean that there is more grout, which means more grip on the floor. This universal design feature looks great and is a safety provision.

Bathroom Dangers 

Did you know 234,000 people aged 15 and up experience slips and falls in the bathroom yearly? A bathroom is a dangerous place for all of us. Thrive experts know that doors need to swing out from the shower. In the unfortunate event that someone falls in the shower and the door swings in, they could block the door from opening. Built-in benches or benches that are secure to the wall create accessible spaces for those who can not stand for long periods. It’s also helpful to include a bench or seating in the bathroom so that individuals can sit down while dressing and undressing.
