This site is for seniors (others welcome) who wish to stay in their homes and make their bathrooms safer and more user friendly. This site is based on 30 years of actual bathroom remodeling experience and focuses on the real world practical solutions that most people want and need.
Seniors today are doing the following:
1. Staying in their homes as long as possible.
2. Downsizing to a smaller home or condo.
3. Moving in with adult children.
In any of these instances, the issue of bathroom safety and convenience is very important. This site covers the most important bathroom items: tub to stall shower conversions, high toilets, high vanities, grab bars, and special needs items which include many different things.
Below are some examples of how some of our customers have solved their situations. Keep in mind that some of these bathrooms don't have the shower doors installed yet or are not painted or finished decorating yet. Also, when looking for at these pictures for ideas, keep in mind the size of your bathroom.
