Is your bathroom designed to accommodate your family’s needs for today and tomorrow? Aging-in-place and universal design bathroom design principles incorporate a 60” wheelchair turning radius, wider doorways, roll-under sinks, and many more features that make a home accessible to all. In fact, when these principles are applied correctly to Atlanta bathroom remodeling projects, they make the bathroom accessible for today, and tomorrow, as well!
Many metro Atlanta homeowners living in communities such as Lawrenceville, Dunwoody, Buckhead and Marietta are planning to remodel the bathroom in order to gain access for bathing and toileting. They are performing bathroom upgrades that would not have been necessary had the home been designed with aging-in-place and universal design / 55+ design principles originally. These Atlanta bathroom remodeling projects solve the accessibility problems faced by many aging homeowners in our local communities.
If you are a person with a disability, have a family member in the home with special needs, or are an individual recovering from an illness, you may require modifications such as a walk in barrier free tub, roll in showers, or other home modifications to make your bathroom accessible.
- Walk-In Bathtubs: For those who cannot stand for long periods of time (or at all), the walk-in bathtub allows easy access to bathing without having to hoist oneself dangerously into a contemporary tub.
- Roll-In Showers: These showers not only have easier access but are designed to be used while safely seated. These showers also have the space needed for a caregiver to help out.
- Grab Bars: Strategically installed around the bathroom can give a fall preventing hand-hold. Additionally can be used to hoist oneself out of a wheelchair.
- Safety Lights: Bathrooms get steamy which can disorient the elderly. Backlit LED lights help keep a person oriented and safe.
