Add Style to Your Accessible Bathroom

Millions of people around the world have some sort of physical disability. Today, we are lucky enough to live in a world where people with limitations are no longer shunned or cast aside as worthless to society; a world with the Paralympics, with prominent people in wheelchairs, with ramps and elevators to make buildings and sidewalks accessible to everyone, and with constant innovations to make life with a disability easier.

It’s natural for us to assume that physical limitations can equal unglamorous home furnishings. After all, you may need grab bars, low fixtures, and specially designed furnishings that are crafted for functionality, not beauty. If your train of thought runs on that track, prepare for a derailment: accessible bathrooms can be just as gorgeous as non-accessible rooms (if not more)!

In 2014, the last of the Baby Boomers will turn 50. That means that there are millions of Boomers with great taste are starting to experience arthritis and other age-related disabilities who want to keep their homes looking beautiful while they serve changing abilities.

Check out these easy and stylish ways to glam up your accessible bathroom!

Tubs and showers

Just because you have a hard time getting in and out of a tub doesn’t mean you need to give up your precious long soaks. Walk-in tubs with seat are available in whirlpool, air, combo, and soaker styles to suit every person’s preference.
