Simple Renovation Updates to Help Keep You Safe at Home

Do you or a loved one find it more and more difficult to complete regular, daily tasks around the house? The safety and wellbeing of yourself and those you care about is of the utmost importance. Has moving in your home become difficult due to the loss of strength and flexibility associated with aging? If so, it may be time to consider an aging-in-place remodeling project. Whether your goal is to make your kitchen or bathroom more accessible, a remodeling professional can help you with your home renovation. Here are a few aging-in-place remodeling tips to consider.

Safety and Mobility Remodeling Tips

Anti-Slip Flooring

As we get older, the risk of falling increases substantially, as does the possibility of injury. Many areas of your home may have carpeted flooring, which is naturally more slip-resistant. But it’s doubtful you want carpeting in your bathroom or kitchen. Instead, consider installing anti-slip flooring during your next bathroom or kitchen update.

Grab Bars for Your Bathrooms

Another good bathroom remodeling idea is to install grab bars. These bars help prevent dangerous falls. You can place grab bars strategically near the toilet and shower/bathtub to provide additional balance support.

Curbless Shower and Walk-In Tubs

For people who have a lot of difficulty stepping up and over objects, a grab bar may not be enough. Curbless showers and walk-in tubs are great options, regardless of whether you prefer showers or baths. Talk to a remodeling professional to find out which aging-in-place option would work best for you and your specific needs.
