4 Ways to Make Your Bathroom Safer

Jan 08, 2024

A beautiful modern bathroomBathing is supposed to be a time of ultimate relaxation, whether you’re starting your day or winding down in the evening. Unfortunately, for many, the bathing process can cause unnecessary stress because of the fear of slipping and falling and other potential hazards. Here are four ways to make your bathroom safer:

1. Prevent Slips With Low-Entry Showers or Baths

Slipping and falling in the bathroom is a common issue and one of the best places to prevent falling is how you enter your shower or bath. Low-entry walk-in showers and baths proactively prevent bending and stepping over entrances because these innovations eliminate the need to navigate high edges and significantly reduce the risk of accidents. Incorporating slip-resistant mats and flooring also enhances traction when you step in, especially on wet surfaces, adding an extra layer of safety to your bathroom environment. 

2. Enhance Accessibility & Convenience 

The challenges posed by hard-to-reach fixtures and storage elements can be significant in bathing spaces. If you want to make your bathroom a more user-friendly space, be sure to incorporate accessible fixtures and convenient storage solutions. Handheld shower heads, for instance, offer unparalleled flexibility, allowing users to control the spray direction effortlessly. This simple addition not only makes it easier to address hard-to-reach places but also minimizes the need for awkward movements, thereby reducing the risk of accidents. Also consider strategically-placed shelving and grab bars to give you extra flexibility and stability.

3. Monitor Water Temperatures

Scalding water can be a critical threat to bathroom safety for seniors, particularly for individuals with diminished sensation or slower reaction times. You can reduce this risk by setting water heater temperatures to a moderate level. Additionally, you may want to consider the installation of anti-scald devices in your showers and faucets. These devices regulate water temperature, preventing sudden and potentially dangerous hot water surges.  Don’t forget to ask about Kohler’s temperature controls, so you won’t have to worry the next time you jump in your shower or bath.

4. Choose Trustworthy Bathroom Safety Specialists 

If you’d like to upgrade your bathroom with safety features that will make it easier for you to enjoy your daily bathing routine, look for trusted contractors and warranties. Consider a company that has been around for a long time to make the most of your warranty and check customer reviews.

Our team at New Bath Today would appreciate the opportunity to make your bathroom safer. We offer lifetime warranties to ensure that your shower or bath is done the right time and for as long as you have it.  Contact us today to learn about the bathroom transformations and read what our customers are saying.
