When remodeling a home for aging in place or creating a universal home design, the bathroom stands out as one of the more challenging areas to handle.

Standardized showers and tubs are often just off the table for most seniors looking to remain in their home—even the luxury stuff. But as it so happens, the industry has been taking notice of this. As more and more homeowners of advanced age choose to remain home, the bath and tub market has rapidly expanded to accommodate.
Your simplest and most effective solution lies in a walk-in bath. Walk-in tubs tend to not only provide direct, level access to the bathing area, but also feature comfortable seating, handrails, and other assistance tools that mitigate the majority of mobility hindrances and safety issues that standard bathing options present.
Height is often one of the more challenging things about choosing to stay in your home throughout advanced age. Bending has become uncomfortable or undoable, and reaching excessively is just frustrating. For this reason, adjusting the height of countertops, toilets, and switches in the bathroom is a wise choice.
To flesh out your universal-use bathroom remodel, you have quite a few options available, each of which is particularly effective at addressing the specific needs of your day to day. These can include:
