Making Bathrooms Safer for Seniors

At Burns Bath, nothing makes us happier than helping seniors feel safer and more secure in their homes. We have a wide range of options – from safety grab-bars and products with non-slip surface protection – to walk-in tubs that provide a safe, easy option for personal bathing and relaxation.

One of the biggest preventable dangers that our aging population faces is something as simple as personal bathing. One in three people over 65 report injuring themselves in a fall in the bathroom.

Most of these injuries occur getting in and out of the shower/bathtub. At Burns Bath Restorations we’re in a position to help by installing everything from bathtub/shower combos that feature non-slip surfaces, to safer standalone showers, and specially designed walk-in bathtubs.

Our walk-in tubs are the best available: Made from top-of-the-line       materials and featuring 100% slip-resistant surfaces , most walk-in tubs can be easily swapped with your existing tub and provide you with a far safer, and more comfortable bathing experience.

With a walk-in tub, you never have to worry about falling in the shower or bath ever again. Just open the door, and relax on the comfortable, chair-height seat. Not only is it  safer and more comfortable than a standard bathtub, but it’s also far better for your back.

We believe that the right to a safe, comfortable bath experience is not something anyone should ever have to give up, and that is why we only provide tubs  that are safe, comfortable, easily accessible, and which are made out of the highest quality materials available.

The Ontario Government will also help with some of these cost.

The Hidden Value of Renovating Your Bathroom

Outside of adding a rental unit to your home, there is nothing else you can do that will increases the resale value of your home as much as a bathroom renovation.

The Appraisal Institute of Canada says that a bathroom renovation has a 75% recovery rate, meaning that three-quarters of what you spend on your new bathroom will be added to the re-sale value of your home.

For example, a $10 000 bathroom project not only makes your house nicer and gives you a more enjoyable living space, but when you go to sell your home, you’ll add $7500 to the value.

Considering the depreciation rate of most large purchases, bathrooms are one of the most value laden purchases you can make.

There is also a fair amount hidden value in bathroom renovations besides adding to your re-sale value: new insulation will lower your heating bill, new taps and a toilet will reduce your water leakage and usage, which will significantly lower your water bill, and a new bathroom will make your home more appealing and easier to sell.  Studies show that the state of the bathroom is one of the main factors that people consider when buying a new home.

Because of the value-added to your home from a new bathroom, it’s not so much a purchase as it is an investment.
