Seated Shower Bases – Designing a Bathroom for All of Life’s Stages

Undergoing a bathroom redesign is a big project that is a worthwhile investment in your home. You’ll painstakingly select the perfect tiles, fixtures and finishes to create your very own oasis to enjoy for many years to come. In order to extend the lifespan of your redesign it is important to consider the future and your needs as you age. Seated and lower threshold shower bases are one of the main design features that can add years to your remodel.

 

Add a seated shower base for comfort and safety

While you may not have an immediate need for a seated space, in the future, having a sturdy place to sit makes your shower a safer place. The seating in the acrylic Alessa base is ergonomic. The Alessa base features under the seat storage. When not in use, the seat can be used for extra storage for shower supplies.

 

Fleurco also offers Adaptek bases, compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. These zero threshold shower bases allow for easy wheelchair access. Other bases are also available with low thresholds which help to prevent bathroom slips and falls.

 

“As we age, creating an environment where you can feel comfortable, safe and at ease is of the utmost importance,” says Karina Schatz, Fleurco’s Director of Industrial Design. “Our seated shower bases offer this security, without sacrificing aesthetics. Our designs are both stylish and functional.”

 

Integrate towel bars or handrails for support and stability

Stepping out of a wet shower or tub can be a slippery endeavour regardless of your age. When thinking about the future in your bathroom redesign, consider the addition of towel bars or handrails within your shower and by your tub to avoid accidents.

 

Create a well-lit space

Lighting is an important element of any bathroom design. Incorporating extra light sources is a smart investment, especially when it can be done stylishly. Fleurco’s Luna lighted mirrors come in a variety of shapes and sizes and effortlessly provide additional light with energy-efficient LED technology.

 

Incorporate these tips to add longevity to your remodel and you’ll have a bathroom to love for many years to come.
