Bathroom Updates with Safety in Mind

This past summer, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  (CDC) reported that there were nearly 250,000 people who were treated in US emergency departments as the result of bathroom injuries.  Our article, Top 10 Tips for Bathroom Safety, lists a variety of practical ways to be safer in the bathroom

 

The CDC report also determined that the highest rates of injuries were those that occurred in or around the tub or shower.  There are several products and services offered at The Home Depot that will make your experience safer and more accessible.  Please note that not all services are available in all areas.

Safeway Safety Step

Safety steps help reduce the possibility of falls and provide easier accessibility without removing the existing bathtub.  Installation includes cutting and removing a section of the bathtub then custom fitting the resulting opening with one of our tub modification inserts.  Options include an installed step that converts your tub into a step-in shower or the addition of a water-tight sealable door. Add easy-to-reach hand-held showers, grab bars, and bath seating for additional accessibility and safety.
