Unfortunate accidents may happen anywhere in our home. Most of them happen in stairs or in the kitchen area. Accidental tripping or falls are also often in the shower area. This is due to the slippery floors or walls. Sometimes, falls in the bathrooms are associated with improper installation of shower doors.
Most people who experience safety-related problems are older adults and unaccompanied children. This is why a good bathroom is not only defined as having an attractive design but must also contain proper shower safety equipments. This is also associated on how a homeowner plans the layout of the area well to make sure accidents will be minimized and the shower is safer to use for everyone.
Due to this, it is very important to have the layout of the room planned based on comfort upon use. For instance, the leveling of the floors and shower stalls should be proper. Shower room amenities should be placed conveniently around the area and toilets should be in a place that is accessible. Do not put the necessary things on hard to reach areas. This may cause accidental slips especially if the floor or walls are wet. The angle of the shower enclosures should also be accurate. Homeowners can choose between a shower stall, a bathtub or both. For older adults who have more difficulty using the shower area by themselves should avoid bathtubs as much as possible.
Accidents usually happen upon climbing in the shower stall or bathtubs. This is why the type of shower door to be installed also has an impact when it comes to certain safety issues. We can never say that a certain type of shower door is safe for everyone to use. However, we can make use of the available features on each product for our advantage. A homeowner should also consider which is more convenient to use and which is more appropriate for the area. For a bathroom that has a modern design, frameless shower doors are appropriate. However, it should be properly placed along with the glass shower enclosure with angles measured accurately.
It is also helpful to place safety shower equipments. This includes grab bars and other bathroom facilities. A support bar installed with your frameless shower door will not make the room unattractive. We can improve its safety and benefits by not only focusing on the design of the product but making use of the available shower safety equipments.
