Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield
If you share your bathroom with someone else who does not need a taller toilet, or if you have a newer or more expensive model you just do not want to replace right now, an add on can be a good compromise and make things easier for you if and when you need the extra help. Installing grab bars or rails next to the toilet can also help you stand up and sit down more easily, whether or not you choose to change the toilets height.
It makes getting in and out very easy and can reduce the risk of falling. If you are certain that a step in tub is what you want, be sure it is larger enough to accommodate you and anything you need, such as a place to sit down. Also consider the height of the tub edge, whether you will have a curtain or doors on it, and what you can do to make the space inside safer.
