Ideas for bathroom remodeling

Have you considered what your bathroom says about your establishment? What I am speaking of goes beyond just clean vs. dirty. Is your bathroom contemporary? Is it classic? Is it spacious? Is it green? Is it handicap friendly? Finding an appropriate bathroom remodeling design can not only draw in new customers, but keep the old ones coming.

Bathroom remodeling companies suggest that toilet heights in a handicapped bathroom should be between 15 inches from floor to the rim of the seat to an even more accessible 17 or 19 inches from the same scale. Your bathroom remodeling design should fit the needs of your customers. Each and every one.

When considering a bathroom remodeling design, there are a few more things to keep in mind to include every walk (or roll) of life. For example, once a handicapped individual enters the bathroom he or she should have ample room to turn around completely, be it via walker or wheelchair.

Furthermore, it is important to remember that handicap bathrooms need grab bars. In a place of business, these should be located by the toilet, to help individuals get up and sit down. When considering a home bathroom remodeling design, grab bars are of assistance with the toilet, the shower, and the bath tub.

Speaking of showers, handicap accessible showers are roll in, and bear no curb. If there is to be a curb, it should be small and fitted with a seat, so that a wheelchair or walker user can be easily transferred inside. Ease of access is key when planning a bathroom remodeling design.

There are numerous ideas for bathroom remodeling which can make the lavatory much more convenient for our disabled friends. There are several different designs for bath tubs, showers, sinks and toilets that make the lives of everyone much easier to navigate.

    I thank you so much for posting this. I often feel unwelcome in places of business and homes of people I know, because the bathrooms are not always easy for me to use.
