|Tile a Tub Surround|
Aging Boomers aren’t the only homeowners using universal design concepts when remodeling their homes because it makes sense for any age family to think about comfort and safety issues. A new bathroom will be more convenient and safer if you include features that make it easy for a bather to get into and out of a bathtub whether it’s a young jock wobbling around on crutches from a sports injury or an elder struggling with arthritis. Even furnishings play a part in creating a comfortable and accessible home. Get rid of things that hurt you. We’ve all heard the cry of a little one who hits his or her head on the sharp corner of a table and seen how simply tripping on a throw rug can cause months of rehab. Remove obstacles in and around the house and prevent accidents from happening.
