Bathrooms are perhaps the one place in your home where you are the most vulnerable. Water on the floor, a tangle of clothes or towels, or the growth of mold can lead to slips, falls or mold-related illness. Whether building a new bathroom or renovating an existing one, Sage Builders LLC can help you add these important bathroom safety features.
- Handrails and grab bars: Wet, slippery floors, tubs and shower stalls are major contributors to bathroom-related falls and injuries. Installing grab bars and handrails is one practical solution to this potential problem. These bars are placed at an appropriate height, angle and location to give you a sturdy place to grip when you stand up, sit down or move around. They are commonly placed along walls and inside tub and shower stalls. Consult with your trusted design professional for advice on installation.
- Benches and seating: Permanent or folding benches inside the shower provide a safe place to sit and rest. If your bathing area is large enough, a permanent bench might be the best solution. Otherwise, a folding bench that can be taken down is a good option.
- Towel warmers: The moisture in bathrooms provide a perfect atmosphere for bacteria, mold and other harmful microorganisms. A towel warmer not only keeps your towel comfortably warm and ready for you, but it also speeds up its drying time so it doesn’t provide a breeding ground for mold and germs.
