Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
Remodeling a bathroom for someone who is aging in place is very different than one based on aesthetics or home value. If you or a loved one are remodeling with an eye to your future needs, there are some very important issues to consider before you start and as you are going through the process. From design to safety to ease of use, remodeling a bathroom will take time and effort, and there will be costs involved.
If you plan to age in place, especially if you will be living alone, being able to keep clean and healthy for as long as possible matters. With all the available options today, you will have choices to help you care for yourself. If you ever use a wheelchair, you will want that space underneath the vanity so you can roll up to the sink and do things like washing your hands and brushing your teeth.
