Bathroom routines should be safe and relaxing no matter where you are. You can design an in-law suite that offers visiting relatives the same security they experience at home by prioritizing privacy, comfort and stability. Here’s how to increase your walk-in shower’s accessibility for greater peace of mind for you and your guests.
5 Ways to Design Your In-Law Suite
Add Seating For Safety
Wash, rinse and repeat—all in a comfortable, seated position. Sitting while showering relieves stress on joints, permitting total-body relaxation. Install a moveable shower seat so guests can adjust for comfort, or select a shower base with seating for a more permanent option.
Install Grab Bars for Better Stability
Install grab bars for easy entry and exit of your walk-in shower. Place the grab bars at the height and location that works best for their body movements and ability. As an added bonus, KOHLER® LuxStone grab bars are available in a variety of styles, sizes and finishes.
Add Sliding Shower Doors for Easy Access
Prepare for last-minute visits from your in-laws faster with glass shower doors. With easy-to-clean glass, you can limit the amount of time you spend preparing for your guests and more time enjoying their arrival! Plus, you can select glass doors that slide for a gentler shower entry.
Include Modern Showerheads for Practical Use
Select modern showerheads and body sprays that make it easy to rinse without straining tired muscles. For extra accessibility and convenience, consider adding a handshower for those hard-to-reach areas.
