5 Essentials of a Boomer Shower

For our next life must-have series on bathrooms, the mission is to continue promoting ergonomic and safe bathrooms that are also beautiful, of course!

 

To repeat — every 18 seconds someone falls in their bathroom — what good is pretty if we’re vulnerable to accidents?

 

Here are some examples of safe and beautiful bathrooms:

Here’s a stunning example from Christopher Elliott who transformed a 1970’s property into a state-of-the-art, modern home. Again, a barrier-free bathroom that’s functional, safe and oh so chic!

And here’s an oldie but goodie video where I share the five must-have features every boomer shower should have. Whether you’re building a home, remodeling your bathroom or buying a new home, you’ll want to remember that when it comes to the bathroom, it’s not about how many square feet you have, but about what you do with the square feet.

 

 

Be watching for the latest and greatest bathroom products and design after the Kitchen & Bathroom Industry Show (KBIS) early next year!

 

In the meantime, stay tuned for more beautiful and safe bathroom must-haves in the coming weeks.

 

Living and loving life together,
