GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) - Today when many home owners remodel, long term or aging in place options are given serious consideration. If you plan to remain in the house, consider what your needs might be should you or a loved one be in a wheelchair. Not only will doorways need to be widened, everyday things now taken for granted will have to be addressed. So, if you're considering a bathroom remodel, I suggest taking a look at a walk-in/wheel in shower surround.
The color selection available from The Onyx Collection is extensive and will work with any decor. They offer four finishes; gloss, matte, stone tile or slate texture. Since it is a surround, there is no grout required making the shower very low maintenance.
The safety of the low profile entrance and all the built in reinforcements make this a great option for current and future needs. There are many accessories you can add to truly customize your shower; grab bars, towel bars, shower caddies, seats, splash guards and shower hooks to name a few. Then really jazz it up with multiple shower heads and double glass swinging doors. There are many standard options readily available.
So standard may not work for you? Custom options are always welcome as well.
And why not coordinate a new vanity and sink top while you're at it. Recessed and non-recessed, integrated or drop in sinks in a variety of sizes and shapes are also available.
If this is a little too challenging for your do-it-yourself skills, Standale Interiors has the CAPS experts (Certified Aging in Place Specialists) to guide your selection and arrange for expert, guaranteed installation.
Have fun, be creative and be safe; this is for you!
