Ensure that the sower has adequate space to take in the shower chair. Having an inbuilt seat is more prudent. Also, it ensures that the bathroom has adequate lighting as possible.
Have hardware for stability
Features such as grab bars at the doors, near the toilet and in the shower, easy to remove shower head with a long hose and sinks with motion sensors or easy to push handles are some of the stylish and cheap features you can install to make your bathroom handicap accessible. Also, the flooring is very crucial. Ensure that it is slip-resistant to avoid accidents.
Make the entry space larger
Since the wheelchair will take up more space, the bathroom door should be wider to give adequate space to get in and out with no difficulties. Besides, ensure that the bathroom and toilet and showering area are in close proximity for convenience.
Adjust the toilet and sink heights
Depending on the situation, you will need to adjust the tap and the sinks to make them low enough to be accessed when seated. Ensure that they have easy to operate faucets. On the other hand, where the person can stand ad walk but have trouble bending, higher sinks and toilets are a better option.
