While bathrooms are usually not that big, they can be hazardous when not designed properly. According to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) study, around 235,000 people over 15 are rushed to the emergency room each year due to a bathroom-related injury. Fortunately, you can modify your bathroom to be safer for everyone in the family.

Learn the basics of bathroom safety from one of the area’s leading bathroom conversion companies.

Toilet Seat

As much as possible, have a higher toilet seat. It would be easier to use the toilet when the seat isn’t low. You can get up and seat down safely and with less effort.

Shower Head

A handheld or adjustable shower head will minimize movement in the shower. You can also use it while on a bath seat or bench.

Sufficient Lighting

Bathrooms must be lit enough during the day. It should also have sufficient artificial lighting for when the sun goes down. It would also be a good idea to have a nightlight or an illuminated switch. Reputable bathroom renovation companies would make sure that your upgraded space has sufficient natural and artificial lighting.

Don’t Rush

The quicker you use the shower, the more likely you are to slip or fall.

Get Rid of Throw Rugs

Slipper floor coverings are the leading cause of falls in the house. If you don’t want to remove them, you can use double-sided tape or slip-resistant backings to secure them to the floor.

Use Non-Slip Mats or Tiles

Place non-slip mats or strips in your shower and tub to reduce the likelihood of falls. Make sure to secure any loose corners to mats to prevent tripping.
