Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield
Lifting your foot up and over the tub edge, and the balance required to do that, can become difficult in later years. But some people still want a step in tub for a number of reasons. Others may prefer a stand alone shower that does not have a tub attached to it. Then there are curbless shower options no lip on the edge of them, so you can roll a walker, wheelchair, or transfer chair right across the edge.
Make sure that your bathroom is set up for things that could be an issue in the future, as opposed to what you may be capable of doing in the present. No matter how you decide to remodel your tub or shower, there are choices to be made. Some seats, stools, and benches are designed to be used right in the shower or tub as built in features, while others are used as removable pieces.
