Accessible Bathroom Solutions: Barrier-Free Shower Bases

Is getting in and out of the tub becoming more of a challenge for you or someone in your household?

One option for safer bathing is to install one of Bath Planets’ walk-in tubs, which are easy to use, accessible and low-maintenance. This gives users the freedom to enjoy a good soak on a comfortable seat, with easy access and extra safety features. However, if you need a roll-in option to shower in your wheelchair, a barrier-free shower base offers the user greater freedom and confidence, and are the perfect way to enhance the safety and style of your bathroom.

At Planet of New Jersey, we understand how important a safe bathroom experience is for our customers, which is why we’re so proud to offer our line of barrier-free shower bases for families and individuals seeking a safer, more accessible option for showering at home.

Why Choose a Barrier-Free Shower Base?

As we already mentioned, a traditional bathtub or shower can make safe bathing a challenge. For wheelchair-users, anyone with decreasing mobility and flexibility, or people who are concerned about slipping, a tub is a barrier to safe, independent living.

Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy when you choose to replace your dangerous bathtub or shower with our brand-new roll-in showers from Bath Planet of New Jersey for your Monmouth County bathroom remodeling project:

  • Easy Maintenance: All of the bases of our roll-in showers are made from Good Housekeeping-approved, mold-resistant acrylic
  • Long-Term Protection: Products come with competitive limited lifetime warranties.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Barrier-Free Shower

Choosing a barrier-free shower can be an easy option for many families and individuals that would benefit from a safer shower experience in their homes. Even so, those looking into shower replacement takes some thought, and a design consultant can help you make sure your new barrier-free shower meets your preferences. When customizing your shower, make sure to consider the following features and characteristics of your design:

  • Safety First: An accessible shower should offer safety as the top priority. This involves adding features such as non-slip flooring, carefully positioned grab-rails, and comfortable seating. It’s also important to consider what your needs may be in the future, as the more versatile the facilities are, the better an investment it is in the long-term.
  • Size Matters: Give plenty of thought to how big you need your shower area to be. If you will be accessing your shower in a wheelchair, think about how much room you will need to maneuver in and out. Do you need room for a helper too? At Bath Planet of New Jersey, we have the experience to help you design the perfect roll-in shower for you.
  • Layout is Important: As with any well-designed room, your bathroom should be laid out to provide great functionality and ease-of-use. Controls should be within easy reach, whether the user is standing or seated. Grab-handles need to be located in key areas to minimize the risk of slips and falls. Even planning where to hang your towel is important! We can guide you through the process of designing a functional bathroom.
