One of the most important things you can do early on in your remodeling project is add grab bars and rails. These can be installed nearly anywhere, and they should be mounted into studs to ensure that they are as secure as possible. Larger rails and bars that are made of metal are generally the best option, because they support weight more easily and are also not difficult to clean.
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.
