When you think of universal design concepts, an older adult or a person with limited mobility may come to mind. However, universal design concepts – especially those that deal with making spaces accessible to people of all ages and ability levels – bring about a number of benefits one might not initially think of.
An article published last month by Yahoo! News discussed several of the ways an accessible shower can benefit anyone, regardless of their age or abilities. We’ve listed some of the points below for your convenience:
- Safety for All – Stepping over the side of a tub, or even a shower curb only a few inches tall, can be dangerous. Loss of balance, slipping on the wet floor, and tripping over the curb can cause a variety of injuries. A curbless shower makes entering and exiting safer for all, as well as making the space usable for people who require the use of a wheelchair.
- A Wise Investment – Remodeling your bathroom to include an accessible shower that family members will be able to use at any stage of life is a great investment. Additionally, including an accessible shower may help you out if you decide to sell your home in the future.
- Added Luxury – Accessories like linear shower drains, such as those offered by LUXE Linear Drains, create a sleeker, more luxurious-looking space.
