Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield
You will need to consider a floor that is not slick, along with mats and rugs that can help protect you. Certain types of tile and other floor coverings are slippery and should be avoided. Marble, for example, can become very slick with just a little bit of water. But there are tiles available that have a rougher surface. They are comfortable to walk on, but not as slippery.
Not all bathroom doors are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair or a walker. Most will allow for what is called a transfer or transport chair, but that is not the same. Even with a transport chair, you would need someone to wheel you around. A traditional wheelchair, on the other hand, allows the user to move and steer themselves using arm strength.
