Making Your Bathroom More Accessible

As for making your bathroom more accessible and supportive of wheelchair use, there’s a host of things that these guys can do apart from raising your home’s resale value. If you’re a senior over the age of 65 or a disabled veteran, then you know it becomes increasingly difficult to be independent in a bathroom with fixtures which may or may not support your weight or routine. If using the bathroom independently is currently impractical, there is a number of ways that you can use this remodeling team to make it so:

  • Installing ADA compliant toilets for seniors and disabled veterans
  • Installing safety grab bars (12” – 30” long) in any location
  • Installing customized transfer benches and built-in shower seats for seniors and disabled veterans
  • Converting your existing bathtub into a barrier-free or low-barrier shower for wheelchair accessibility
  • Replacing a bathtub wall’s cutout with a door to function similarly to a walk-in tub
  • Installing soaker and jetted bathtubs made from acrylic
  • Installing a walk-in bathtub with soaking, whirlpool, air massage, or dual-massage features

Bathing independently becomes a luxury as we grow older due to atrophying muscles and little exercise. Having a walk-in tub in your bathroom makes sure there is no longer a limitation put on your bathing mobility.

The Xtremebath walk-in tub features the following safety design elements:

  • A non-slip floor to significantly reduce the chances of accidents common with seniors.
  • A wide watertight door to make it easy for you to enter and exit the unit hazard-free.
  • Built-in safety grab bar.
  • ADA compliant seat to reduce the stress on your thigh muscles when you get up and sit down.
  • Quality drain and wide faucets for quicker draining and filling of the tub.

Low-Threshold Shower by Xtremebath

Xtremebath Barrier-Free & Low-Threshold Showers

Bathing is not for everybody and certainly not for seniors looking to have a daily hygienic routine without the prolonged nature of a bath. With a shower, you can maintain even more cleanliness than you would from a bath and it only takes a few minutes. Barrier-free and low-threshold showers are relatively the same but they differ slightly in the base’s threshold height and accessibility.

Barrier-Free Showers

Barrier-free showers rise 0” from the ground and are the easiest to step into, plus they can be entered easily with a wheelchair without a ramp. The water that isn’t caught by the primary drain falls in a secondary drain lining the base’s outermost edge, keeping you safe from slipping.

Low-Threshold Showers

As the second most easy to access units, low-threshold showers only require you to lift your leg slightly upon entry and exit. If you move around with a wheelchair, you will have to use a small ramp to enter the shower, but apart from that, these kinds of showers are stress-free and supportive of your independence.

Quarried Natural Stone Design

One very neat perk you get with Xtremebath showers is the option to use ForzaStone® for the entire enclosure. Very stylish, modern, and organic-looking, ForzaStone® is basically quarried natural stone that will raise the resale value considerably if you plan to move out in the future. The stone slabs are cut 0.2” thin and their backs are glued with a low-VOC epoxy adhesive to an aluminum allow to achieve an overall thickness of 0.4” and a material eight times stronger than regular slabs.
