Home Accessibility Upgrades with Style

Are you looking to make home accessibility upgrades in your property but you’re wondering where to start? You’ve come to the right place. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we’ve put together some home upgrades that will add accessibility without sacrificing style.

Toilet seat risers

Also known as a toilet seat extender, a toilet seat riser is a special type of equipment installed onto an existing toilet to elevate the sitting height of the average toilet. The riser attaches to the toilet bowl and offers extra seat thickness and height to make it easier for those with limited mobility to sit on the toilet. Toilet seat risers come with a variety of features, including support arms, a clamping mechanism, slip-resistant pads, and slip-in brackets, all of which benefit people with reduced or limited mobility.

Grab bars

Simple additions like adding grab bars to your bathroom can help with stability in the bathroom. Grab bars can help people with mobility issues to maintain balance, assist in getting in and out of the shower, and lessen fatigue while standing.

Touch-activated faucets

As the name implies, touch-activated faucets can be activated or deactivated with just a touch anywhere on the faucet’s body or handle. Some of the people who can benefit from these faucets include the elderly, people with disabilities, people with impaired motor skills, and young children. Touch-activated faucets are easy to use and help to conserve water.

Lever Handles

Turning knob handles can be difficult for people with hand coordination issues. You should consider replacing knob handles with lever handles to make rooms more accessible.

Walk-in showers

Many elderly people and those with limited mobility struggle to access showers with high sides, leading to many bathroom slip-and-fall accidents. Instead of a traditional bathtub with high sides, consider installing a walk-in shower. Install built-in seats for even more support.

Thermostatic mixing valve

This device blends hot and cold water to achieve a particular, predetermined water temperature at the delivery point. It offers protection against accidental injuries or burns. Every year in the U.S., more than 100,000 people suffer serious burns caused by hot water. Young children, seniors and persons with disability make up about 80 percent of this group. With a thermostatic mixing valve, you can protect your loved ones, including the disabled members of your family from scalding.

Sliding doors

Sliding doors move along tracks fitted into their frames at the top and bottom. These doors slide effortlessly to the side, so they offer quick and easy access to various parts of your home. Moreover, they can add beauty and elegance to your property.
