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.
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.
