Bathroom Safety Tips - After Your Remodeling is Finished:
- Remember that shiny floors can become slippery when wet. We like specially treated non-slip flooring or use mats with non-slip rubber backing to absorb splashes and prevent falls!
- Try to ensure that baths and showers have ridged or textured surfaces, otherwise use non slip mats. Hand rails near the bath and shower are also useful.
- Potentially dangerous substances like medicines and cleaning equipment should be kept out of reach in a high cupboard or locked away.
- Think about height restrictions. Small children may bang their heads on low basins. Cabinets and shelving should not be placed directly over a toilet.
- Fixtures with rounded edges are safter than those with sharp corners, particularly in a small bathroom where they may cause injury if someone falls against them.
- Fit door locks that an be opened from the outside in case anybody becomes locked in the bathroom. Alternatively, keep a spare key just outside the door.
- Find anti-scalding regulator controls or thermostats to maintain an evenly heated water supply at all times. Try to ensure that hot water taps cannot be easily reached by small children. Hot water pipes should be boxed in to prevent burns. Find more kitchen and bathroom remodeling tips by clicking here.
