With more and more homeowners choosing to “age in place,” there is a realization that some modifications must be made to the home in order for a resident to remain there for as long as possible. As we age, our bodies become less flexible and moving about the house becomes more difficult. This is especially true of the bathroom.
AginginPlace.com is a website that’s all about ways homeowners can remain in their own homes for as long as possible. The website includes a list of the top ten aging in place design trends, and no-threshold showers are included in the list. These showers have become popular for a number of reasons. For instance, since bathers don’t have to step over the side of the tub, the risk of a trip, slip, fall, or loss of balance is significantly reduced.
AginginPlace.com states “No-threshold showers have begun to take hold with not just designers, but builders and consumers, as well. When containment of water is planned carefully based on the size, proportion, direction and amount of water flowing, the extent of the waterproof layer, the slope of the floor, type and location of the drains, and the plan for the doors, curtains, or open entries, this is a wonderful choice.”
LUXE Linear Drains is well equipped with all the drain supplies needed to create a no-threshold shower. Our products are ADA compliant to ensure a safe and secure bathing environment.
