Ensuring Comfort and Safety: Senior Bathroom Remodeling with Bath Pro KC

As you age, many aspects of your home must adapt to meet your evolving needs. One critical area is the bathroom, where safety, accessibility, and functionality are paramount. As a leading specialist in bathroom remodeling in the Kansas City area, we at Bath Pro KC recognize this and combine our expertise with top-of-the-line materials and thoughtful designs to create bathrooms that exceed our senior customers needs and expectations.

Products and Design for Safe and Accessible Bathrooms

Tub-to-Shower Conversions: One of the most popular requests from our senior customers is a tub-to-shower conversion, which reduces their risk of falls while getting in or out of their tub. Our crews install easily accessible, zero-entry or low-entry showers that drastically reduce the risk of falling. We will remove everything in the tub/shower space down to the subfloor and back to the studs. We use solid surface materials that are low-maintenance and visually pleasing, like the ones from the Onyx Collection, to ensure longevity and ease of care.

Grab Bars: Strategically placed grab bars, often called safety bars or handrails, support seniors and increase their confidence and safety while navigating the bathroom. The best time to install safety bars in the shower is when the shower walls are removed and the studs are visible. We can then block in between the studs for them without trying to hit the middle of the stud, creating a more secure and stable grab bar. They are a great accessory and safety feature that we highly recommend adding to your shower space. 

Slip-Resistant Flooring: Overlooking the importance of slip-resistant flooring in a senior's bathroom can lead to some unfortunate consequences. A slick surface such as tile flooring is often the primary culprit behind most bathroom accidents, leading to minor or severe injuries that could have easily been prevented. We at Bath Pro KC recognize this and prioritize installing a shower base that is textured for slip-resistance in the shower area and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) and Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) outside of the shower space for our customers. Luxury Vinyl Plank and Luxury Vinyl Tile are also called LVP and LVT. It is an excellent alternative to slippery ceramic and porcelain floor tiles. 

Wheelchair Navigation: Another feature we pay close attention to is creating wheelchair-accessible spaces for our customers. By widening doorways and ensuring ample maneuvering space, seniors who rely on wheelchairs or other mobility aids can use their bathroom independently and comfortably.

Seating Options: Bath Pro KC understands that many seniors find standing for extended periods challenging, so we offer various seating solutions for your shower. To save money, you can purchase a removable shower chair. We can also build a full bench seat customized to your height and depth preferences. A folding fixed seat is also an excellent option. This seat is easily folded up when not used, so it does not take up valuable shower space when not needed. The Onxy Collection also offers several corner seats that will ensure your comfort during shower routines.

Flexible Shower Heads: It is crucial for seniors to be able to use their shower space in a flexible way. Bath Pro KC offers the installation of a handheld showerhead on a glide bar to offer this flexibility for customers. This feature allows seniors to adjust the height and angle of the shower head, making showering easier and a more enjoyable experience regardless of their mobility level.
