Have a Roll-in Shower Installed at Your Onalaska, WI, Home
Navigating the bathroom can be a dangerous task for people of all ages. In fact, injuries in or near the bathtub or shower account for more than two-thirds of emergency room visits each year, and the risk of falling in the bathroom is exponentially greater for seniors or those with limited mobility. At The Board Store, we believe everyone should be able to meet their hygiene needs as safely and independently as possible, which is why we offer roll-in showers for homeowners in the Onalaska, Wisconsin, area.
What is a Roll-in Shower?
With a roll-in shower, the shower floor is flush with the bathroom floor, and there is no high rim to step over. This allows a wheelchair to maneuver into the shower stall easily without being obstructed or running the risk of tripping and falling. Roll-in showers are often built with an incline to keep the bathroom floor as dry as possible. Since these showers are built for comfort and safety, they are also often designed with features that a conventional shower doesn’t always have, such as grab bars and bench seating.
There are distinct advantages that roll-in showers provide, including that they:
- Are easy to use – Roll-in showers are easy to use both for those with limited mobility and those without. For those who do use a wheelchair or for seniors hoping to age in place, roll-in showers give them the opportunity to bathe in privacy, as they will not need to be helped as often.
- Maximize space – Roll-in showers take up less space than regular showers with curbs, so you will feel less cramped.
- Require little maintenance – Since there is no curb, there are no barriers that can get in the way of cleaning your roll-in shower. Plus, if water goes beyond a shower that doesn’t have a trench drain, you can also easily sweep the water into the shower.
- Provide a modern look – Although roll-in showers are installed for their functions, they are still unique from traditional tub/shower combos, as the absence of a high curb makes them look sleeker and more stylish.
