Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
But for anyone who wants to age in place, though, it can be very worthwhile to have a bathroom that is comfortable and safe to use easily as needs change. From something as simple as sensor lights to adding another bathroom, there are options and considerations for anyone who intends to stay in place. But without a clear picture of what you really want to do with your project, you may find that the costs continue to rise and the needed changes either do not get completed or are not what you really expected.
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.
