Make Your Bathroom a Safe Space

About 37% of bathroom injuries occur in or around tubs and showers.1 Many of them are caused by slips and falls, especially for older adults while bathing. Reduce your risk with these six tips to increase accessibility and stability in your bathroom.

Bathe Safer With a Walk-In Tub

Unlike a traditional tub, walk-in tubs have a low step-in and extra-wide door that allow you to safely enter and exit the bath with ease. Additional safety, therapeutic and convenience features enhance your bathing experience.

Add a Raised Toilet With Grab Bars

A chair-height toilet makes it easier to sit down and stand up. Make sure your toilet is set at a comfortable height, ranging between 17 and 19 inches. For additional stability, add grab bars around the toilet.

Lower Your Sink Height

If you are in a wheelchair or use a seated vanity while brushing your teeth or shaving, your sink should be no more than 34 inches high to ensure easy access to the counter and sink from a seated position.

Create a Well-Lit Bathroom

Safely navigate your bathroom at night with a nightlight for better visibility. You can also upgrade to an illuminated light switch for an additional light source.

Remove Bath Rugs and Mats

Rugs and bath mats can be trip hazards. Consider removing them to prevent falls. Instead, add textured stickers for extra grip on slick floor surfaces like tile.

Add Accessible Shelving

Lowering your shelving ensures everything is within easy reach. This helps you avoid overexerting yourself and potentially losing your balance, reducing your risk of slips and falls.

A Life-Changing Bathing Solution

Stepping over the high walls of traditional tubs can be challenging, especially for people with limited mobility. That’s why our customers turn to Safe Step to keep them safe. The ultra-low step-in, anti-slip floor and 2x built-in grab bars allow them to bathe independently and with peace of mind.

We’re proud that our customers continuously rave to their friends and family about the dozens of safety, convenience and therapeutic features they experience in their Safe Step Walk-In Tub.
