Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
A large closet can also be part of a bathroom conversion, if there is enough room. But keep in mind that the first floor bathroom must be accessible, and that means a bigger space that can accommodate a walker or a wheelchair. With a larger space, your first floor bathroom will be much safer and easier to use as you age. Stepping in and out of the bathtub is not an issue for most younger people, but it may be riskier as you age.
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.
