Grab Bars Benefit Everyone! Although grab bars still have a long way to go before theyre loved and accepted as decorative accent pieces for your bathroom everyone can enjoy the enhanced safety and convenience that well-installed grab bars afford. There are times when everyone can use a place to grab onto in a bathroom- ceramic and acrylic tub or shower surfaces are hard and become slippery when wet. An accident as trivial as dropping a bar of soap can pave the way for a potentially harmful fall no matter how fit you are. Bath grab bars give you place to reach out and hold your weight when your feet slip out from beneath you.
Anyone who must rely on a grab bar to get in and out of the bathtub or shower no longer has to have a bathroom with a hospital look. Grab Bars have never been so stylish and can be hidden in plain sight disguised as a towel rack toilet paper holder or soap dish. Integrated Support rails can blend right in with functional and practical bathroom accessories like a circular accent ring around a shower fixture or beside a toilet a discrete hand rail that also doubles as a paper roll holder with room for extra rolls. Luxurious Shower Seats that thinly fold against a shower wall are also more readily available for stylish safety. Other designs that integrate style with safety are also available to an aging population who prefers to age in place and stay in their own homes in their twilight years.
