Here are some tips to consider when painting your bathroom. WWarm colors like peach and yellow are fun, they make the bathroom feel cozier. If you use neutral colors like beiges or whites, they will reflect light and will make the room look larger. Colors like blue, green are viewed as cool colors Brighter colors like black or red add drama to the decor, absorb light and will make the room appear smaller. In rooms with plenty of windows and natural lighting, consider using darker colors to offset the ambient lighting. If you want to give the space a masculine touch, pick grey, beige and taupe colors. For feminine touch, try incorporating more colors.
•Using a sliding glass shower door for stability or balance – This is really unsafe because shower doors were not designed to support a person’s weight. This problem could be easily avoided by informing older adults not to use the door as a support, or possibly replacing it with a shower curtain.
•Using unsafe shower and bathtub and bathtub features – it is best to install grab bars where you can reach them easily. Using good safety equipment in your bathroom is the only way to go. Do not try and make your own. For example using a plastic lawn chair as a tub seat. Call us and will will provide you with a safety checklist for your bathroom. (415) 209-0229
Last Saturday Marin County Bathrooms installed a new walk in tub for one of our customers. Her family contacted us as they were really scared that she was going to fall in the bathtub and nobody would be around to help her. She was having a really hard time taking a bath and had to go upstairs to take a shower. She did have a chair lift to help her get upstairs but it was really hard to carry all her stuff she needed for her shower. We were so happy to be able to help her family and install a walk in tub which provided the family some relief that she would be safe while bathing.
