Do You Need Bath Safety Accessories To Make Your Bathroom Safe?

When you’re in your home, the bathroom is one of the spaces where you’re at the highest risk of injury. The wet nature of the space means it’s easier to slip and fall in the bathroom than in some other areas of the home, so one wrong step is all it takes to find yourself in pain.

This is particularly true for seniors or those experiencing mobility restrictions. Fortunately, you can add bath safety accessories to your home to instantly help you feel safer when you bathe.

What Are Common Bath Safety Accessories to Add to Your Space?

How can you feel more safe and secure when using your bathroom? We’re glad you asked! Here’s a quick guide to some of the highest-impact bathroom safety accessories to add to your home.

Please keep in mind that we can add all of these features to your home during your bathroom remodel, however, they are not sold separately as standalone products.

Grab Bars

Grab bars are designed to provide stability and support for individuals, particularly those with mobility issues or those who are at risk of falls. Typically installed in the shower or bathtub area, grab bars offer users a reliable handhold for steadying themselves while navigating slippery surfaces or transferring to and from seated positions. 

Because they are securely mounted to the wall, grab bars help reduce the likelihood of accidents, offering peace of mind to users and their caregivers. Our grab bars are available in various lengths, materials, and finishes, so they can be seamlessly integrated into any bathroom design and blend in with existing decor.

Safety Bars

Safety bars, also known as safety rails or handrails, also provide extra stability and assistance to individuals with limited mobility or balance issues. When installed in your shower or bathtub area, these bars offer a secure grip for support so you can safely move around in slippery areas. 

Safety bars are typically made from durable materials like stainless steel or corrosion-resistant plastics so they can withstand the moisture-heavy environment of a bathroom. By offering a reliable means of steadying yourself, safety bars can help reduce the risk of injuries and promote independence.

Shower Seats

Individuals with mobility limitations or those who need assistance while bathing should consider adding a shower seat to their bathrooms. These seats provide a secure and stable surface for users to sit on while showering, eliminating the need to stand for extended periods, which can be challenging or risky for some people. 

Shower seats come in various designs, including wall-mounted, fold-down, and freestanding options, allowing for flexibility in installation and space utilization. Whether for seniors, people with disabilities, or those recovering from surgery or injury, shower seats enhance accessibility and safety in the bathroom, facilitating a more comfortable and enjoyable bathing experience.

Shower Benches

Similarly, shower benches also are a great option for those who require assistance while bathing. These comfortable benches offer a secure place to sit while showering, helping to reduce the risk of slips and falls while bathing. 

Shower benches typically offer more space than a standard shower seat, which is ideal for those who would prefer to have a bigger place to sit.

Detachable Shower Heads

Our detachable shower heads come with a convenient hose that allows users to easily detach the shower head from its holder, providing greater control over the direction and flow of water. This feature is particularly beneficial for individuals using a shower seat or bench, as it enables them to direct the water precisely where needed without having to stand. 

Beyond that, handheld shower heads allow for easier rinsing and cleaning of the body, ensuring thorough hygiene while reducing the risk of slips and falls associated with reaching or stretching in the shower.

Non-Slip Floors

Finally, consider adding non-slip floors to your space, which are designed to provide enhanced traction and grip to minimize the likelihood of accidents and injuries. Available in a variety of colors and styles, non-slip floors offer stability and confidence to those who worry about falling in the bathroom. 

By preventing slips and falls, slip-resistant floors help promote safety and peace of mind, particularly for elderly individuals, people with mobility challenges, or households with young children.

Additionally, non-slip floors are easy to clean and maintain, ensuring that safety remains a top priority without sacrificing aesthetics or functionality in the bathroom.

Benefits of Creating a Safer Bathroom

Even if you don’t think you need these shower safety features right now, the reality is that renovating your bathroom to be safer is a good idea, no matter what stage of life you’re in at the moment. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of adding these features to your bathroom.

It Helps Prevent Accidents

The bathroom is a common area for slips, trips, and falls due to wet surfaces and obstacles. Making the bathroom safer can significantly reduce the risk of accidents, which is especially important for elderly individuals who may be more prone to falls. 

It Allows You to Maintain Your Independence

A safer bathroom allows individuals to maintain their independence and carry out daily activities, such as bathing, without assistance. This can lead to improved self-esteem and overall well-being. 

It Helps You Create a More Accessible Space

Creating a bathroom that is accessible to people with disabilities or mobility challenges ensures that everyone in the household can use it comfortably and safely. This may involve installing the features we discussed above or making bigger changes like adding a barrier-free shower or walk-in tub.

It Gives You Peace of Mind

Knowing that your bathroom is designed to be safer can provide peace of mind to both the individuals using it and their caregivers. This can alleviate stress and anxiety, particularly for family members who may worry about their loved one’s safety.

It Makes It Easier to Age in Place

For seniors who wish to remain in their homes as they age, a safe bathroom is essential for maintaining independence and reducing the risk of accidents that could result in the need for assisted living or nursing care. 

It May Improve Your Property Value

Adding safety features in the bathroom, such as grab bars and non-slip flooring, may add value, making your home more attractive to potential buyers. This is especially true if you’re selling your home in an area where aging in place is popular. 

It Allows You to Maintain Your Hygiene

Creating a safer bathroom encourages regular hygiene practices, such as bathing and handwashing, which are essential for overall health and well-being. 

Who Benefits From Adding Shower Safety Features to the Bathroom?

Adding bath safety features to your home can benefit a wide range of individuals. Aside from seniors and those experiencing mobility limitations, as we’ve discussed above, a safer bathroom also benefits the following people: 

  • Individuals recovering from surgery or injury: If you have temporary mobility limitations, it can make navigating the bathroom difficult. Safety features like shower benches and handheld shower heads can assist you during the recovery process. 
  • Families with young children: Kids are prone to accidents in the bathroom, but features like non-slip flooring can help keep them safer.
  • Caregivers: Installing bathroom safety features not only benefits the individuals using the space but also provides peace of mind for caregivers. Knowing the bathroom is equipped with these features reduces the risk of accidents and minimizes the need for constant supervision.
