Walk-in Tubs

A walk-in tub makes bathing a much simpler and safer experience. Having one professionally installed can be one of the keys to helping a senior stay in the comfort of their own home longer. Walk-in tubs are both stylish and functional. Seniors and their loved ones can have greater peace of mind after installing this type of tub.

Add a Seat

Standing in the shower can be difficult, if not impossible for some seniors. A comfortable, durable shower seat is an ideal fix. Shower seats can be installed in an existing tub or stall, and there are also movable options, too.

Grab Bars for Support

Grab bars make it much easier to sit comfortably on the toilet and to enter and exit the tub and shower. They’re simple to install and provide essential support for individuals with mobility problems. Many grab bars are movable and can be easily and conveniently transferred to other areas of the room and other bathrooms. Others are mounted securely to the wall, making showering safer.

Keep it Clean

The pathway to the bathroom and the floor of the room should be kept clean and free of clutter. Consider removing small rugs and bath mats that can be trip hazards. Be sure that any rugs that are used have a secure rubber grip on the bottom to keep them in place. This prevents the rug from shifting around on tile and laminate floors.

Lighting Matters

Entering a dark bathroom is dangerous for seniors. A basic night light is ideal to keep the room illuminated in the evenings for safety. Consider using an LED light with a sensor that will automatically turn on after dusk.

A safer bathroom is easy to achieve with just a few simple modifications. For seniors planning to stay in the comfort of their own homes for years to come, installing a walk-in tub with a seat is an excellent option. Removing clutter, adding grab bars, and keeping the room well lit are all necessary and helpful. Take the steps to transform the bath into a safe room that can remain functional and provide the comfort that individuals with mobility issues need.

Picking Your Dream Color Scheme

By | Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

One of the biggest influences on a bathroom remodel’s success is choosing the right color and color combinations.  Color can enhance the tone of the room and also gives you the opportunity to show off your personal style.  We aren’t just talking about paint either; you can get creative with the ways that you use color in your bathroom.  Bathmats, Towels, all the way down to small items such as your toothbrushes can have a big impact on the overall feel of your bathroom space!

Accessories are one way to add color and accent, but the walls and colors of your showers/tubs will have the largest impact.  Depending on the size of the bathroom that you would like to remodel, dark and light colors can work for or against you.  Dark colors may not be the best choice for a smaller space, while lighter colors can create the illusion of emptiness in a larger sized space.  The color of your tiling and flooring will also play a large part in the initial impact that your coloring has as you enter the room.  Careful consideration of how your flooring accentuates the overall feel that your bathroom conveys is important, and the end result is very satisfying to see it all tie together!

Luxury Bath of Ohio is happy to work closely with you to develop the overall color scheme and think of creative ways to introduce color to your space.  A second opinion never hurts; it’s very easy to get tunnel vision on a certain attribute or style.  Contact us today to get started on your new project, the bathroom of your dreams!
