Remodeling Your Bathroom

Access to your bathroom and the ability to bath yourself and use the toilet may sound trivial but become struggles as we get older.

Remodeling a bathroom and shower can be a significant investment; it immediately makes your home more enjoyable, and over the long term, will raise your home’s value by thousands of dollars.

When we think about remodeling, we imagine a time-consuming or costly event, but there are many small, low-cost smart home projects you can tackle over time to make a huge impact.

Were you thinking about upgrading a bathroom? Here are a few projects you can consider.

Upgrade the Shower or Add a Walk-in Tub

Walk-in tubs offer the benefit of having easy access in and out of the tub; if you have mobility issues currently, this retrofit could be the item that keeps you aging at home. You can also get these walk-in tubs with hydrotherapy options, including smart home jacuzzi jets, relaxing music, sounds, and lights.

Also, adding therapeutic options like built-in storage or seating has become functional and practical.
