Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield
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.
Another add on to consider is an option to help you stay cleaner. There are add ons that can provide you with the basic feel of a bidet, so you can get cleaner without as much effort. Having something like this can make it easier for an elderly person to stay clean, and that can not only help them feel better about caring for themselves, but can also reduce the risk of infection and related problems.
