Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
If your house has stairs, one of the best ways to reduce risk is to have a bathroom on the first floor. Some two story homes, especially in certain parts of the country or in older, more established neighborhoods, have only one bathroom: upstairs, close to the bedrooms. While that made sense years ago, it also created problems for anyone who had trouble climbing stairs.
Since doors come in standard sizes, you will want to be sure what size you need and how big the entire opening must be to accommodate a wheelchair. You may never need to be in one, but if you do need one at a later date, you will be ready and would not have to find another place to live or somewhere else to stay while changes and accommodations are made.
