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.
A tight space can feel claustrophobic, especially for someone who may not get around that easily. This may make it necessary to move a wall to create a larger bathroom to ensure an adequate turning radius for a wheelchair and plenty of space for someone with a walker to get around the bathroom safely. Thinking carefully through these clearance issues will help provide for both safety and comfort for you no matter how you may need to get around.
