Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
Chair lifts can help with this, but a bathroom on the first floor is very important when you are aging in place. If your home does not have a lot of space on the first floor, getting a bathroom in there can seem difficult. But there are generally ways to make space. You may need to give up part or all of a bedroom, sun porch, patio, office, or another small room that you are not really using.
That means making the sink counter a little lower than average, but it does not take much to get used to, and it is well worth it for future planning. Be sure to make the countertop a size that is easy to reach, even at the back, and adjust the placement of the mirror where you can see in it clearly whether you are sitting or standing.
