A barrier-free shower accommodates everyone in your family, including older loved ones and young children. It’s easy to wash kids in this kind of space, and it allows seniors to maintain their privacy and independence while showering.
With so many design options available for this type of shower, it offers a great way to incorporate your style into your bathroom. A barrier-free shower is best known for its sophisticated look and seamless surfaces.
There’s no step-over in a barrier-free shower, so it’s wheelchair-accessible. Even if a family member has limited mobility, they can shower by themselves and maintain their privacy, independence and dignity.
You must clean your bathroom regularly to keep a clean and sanitary environment. Cleaning the traditional bathroom is difficult due to the numerous corners and joints where dirt and grime accumulate. On the other hand, a barrier-free shower has fewer seams and can be cleaned more quickly. This is important for people with mobility issues, especially those who live alone.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 235,000 people over age 15 visit emergency rooms yearly due to injuries sustained in the bathroom. Barrier-free showers are walk-in and have no significant step-over, making them more wheelchair-accessible than standard bathrooms. This design eliminates tripping hazards, making your bathroom a lot safer for everyone in the family.
