You don't have to gut your bathroom to update it and make it user friendly. It can be frustrating when you lack storage space or when you don't feel it looks great. Two projects to start with are bathroom sinks and cabinets. You can do the work on your own or you can hire a professional to install for you.
Many bathrooms and kitchens have what is referred to as dead space and that is where you can put a corner sink. If you have a large kitchen, you may be interested in putting one in as a second device and not in place of your main wash basin. This can be perfect for washing vegetables and other food prep work.
The two main styles of bathtub are the Western style bathtubs and the Eastern style bathtubs. The Western style is the one in which the user can lie down while in the Eastern the person can only sit up.
Depending on the accessibility a walk-in bathtub provides, safety bars are typically located in convenient areas to help seniors balance themselves when entering and exiting the tub. If a certain model, for example, is built for wheelchair-bound users, a safety bar will typically be located on the unit's outer rim to make it easy to reach.
Special bathroom paints are being developed by almost all reputed paint manufacturers in the market. These are essentially acrylic-latex based waterproof paints with anti bacterial/ fungal additives. The range of lovely colours these are available in makes them a very tempting choice for a cheerful bath decor scheme.
The shapes and sizes of heads also differ. Some are round and others are square. Temperature settings can be adjusted to let you select the appropriately warm or cold water for your soothing shower.
Another approach with some models is an emergency door switch which detaches the door and empties the tub instantly for a quick rescue.
