How to Create an Accessible Shower
When remodeling a shower to improve accessibility for individuals in their golden years or those with mobility challenges, you can’t go wrong by focusing on shower size and safety features. The bigger the shower space the more room there will be to move around comfortably while still allowing room for a shower stool and storage areas. Of course, the space shouldn’t be so roomy as to make reaching for support bars a challenge in itself, but it definitely should feature at least one grab bar, or better yet, a bar that can also be used for storage.
Another essential feature for better accessibility is a low-step basin. This greatly reduces the risks of falls involved with stepping over a shower curb, which can be difficult for those with mobility issues.
