How To Design A Bathroom For The Elderly

Bathroom design ideas for elderly old aged people

We at design Cafe believe in taking care of the aged as they also need the best of the best when it comes to home interiors. Check out bathroom ideas that are friendly for old-aged folk to know more.

Take care of old folk because one day you will be old too. When it comes to taking care of elderly people, we need to consider their comfort and make sure they have a fall free and safe experience in the bathrooms. We at Design Cafe believe in designs that are  elder friendly. Everyone needs a bathroom where they can relax and get their business done, and for elderly people, a little hand-holding is a must. Here is an insight into elder-friendly bathrooms designs.

Be Seated For Sometime

We all know how parents or grandparents who are ageing love to take a seat wherever they find one. You would have noticed when you’re out shopping at the mall that your ageing parent or grandparent loves to sit in the food court on a bench. They enjoy watching the crowd as they wait for you to return from your shopping spree. This bathroom design for the elderly is for those who like to sit around and relax. This bathroom is designed in a way to help the elderly rest and keep their belongings on this bench at easy access.

This elder friendly bathroom does not have to compromise on style. This bathroom comes with white tiles and a pop of grey. A hand shower for old aged folk is placed so they can have a fuss-free bath and a toilet with rails so they can hold on and sit at ease. This bathroom also has inbuilt shower shelves so they can easily access their toiletries and don’t have to make a run for their towels.
