Though there are many circumstances that can change your plans, some homeowners often find the home they intend to live in forever. Once the decision is made to stay in the home forever, many people will consider remodeling the home in different ways to better suit their needs. As we grow older, bathrooms become more dangerous as our risk of slipping and falling increases significantly. Additionally, the bathroom can also be made in a private oasis. No matter what your preference is, we at My-General Contractor would like to make some recommendations for remodeling the bathroom in your forever home.
Curbless or Low Threshold Showers
The tub/shower duos are convenient for growing families who need to transition from tub to shower, they have a high threshold, you must cross to get in. That threshold can become a danger to get in and out of daily as we age. There are a couple of options that can improve the safety of the tub/shower.
1) Those that are considered low threshold showers or walk-in showers, the showers with thresholds that are under 2-inches tall.
2) Since they are able to roll straight into the shower, curb-less or roll-in showers are convenient for members of your family who may be in a wheelchair.
We can help you find the best option for your shower if you need assistance.
