Affordable Upgrades for Your Bathroom

by Fitzroy of London

Is your bathroom your own sanctuary? Is it a place you visit to unwind or relax?

Is your bathroom enhancing or endangering your health?

These are probably not questions you think about as you get ready for work in the morning or finish your night-time routines before you go to bed. Believe it or not, your bathroom has a role to play in your well-being, and there are elements you can add or change to remove hazards and improve its role in your health.

Here are some affordable ideas to consider for your bathrooms:

  1. A hand-held massaging showerhead

    It’s easy to replace a standard showerhead with a hand-held model that will provide better coverage. A massaging feature adds the ability to pinpoint the jets to where your body aches to ease soreness.

  2. Grab Rails

    Falls are the leading cause of injury among older adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Preventing them can save your life – and doesn’t have to take a toll on your bathroom’s style. They’re also great for active children to grasp if they slip in the tub.

    At Fitzroy of London, we have a wide-range of grab-bars. View our collection here - https://www.fitzroyoflondon.com/collection

  3. Sensor Vent Fans

    Moisture you don’t see or remove can turn to mould, which is unpleasant to breathe. It’s also extremely unhealthy for individuals with respiratory and immunity issues. A sensor vent fan can help prevent mould build-up by removing moisture from the air, even when you’re not home.

  4. Better Lighting

    As we age, our vision tends to get weaker. Better lighting in your bathroom can help when it comes to reading labels, shaving and applying make-up. Look for fixtures that upgrade the amount of light without increasing your energy usage.

  5. Touchless Toilets

    Some of the newer toilets on the market offer hands-free flushing. By waving your hand near the sensor, you’re reducing the amount of germs you come into contact with.

  6. Shower Seats

    Not all showers come equipped with benches, and there are times when sitting is just better than standing (and it’s safer!)
