Bathing beauties: Resort Spa Style in Your Retirement Home

Excerpted from an original post by Jamie Goldberg for Wood-Mode

You’re building your forever house, or finally creating your dream bathroom. Your 80-year-old father-in-law is moving in with your family. Your knee is still recuperating from last year’s ski trip. Any of these could inspire the creation of an aging-in-place bathroom in your home.

The good news is, this doesn’t have to mean turning one of your baths into an institutional setting.  According to AARP, 90 percent of homeowners want to remain in their own homes after retiring. Unfortunately, only a fraction of American housing stock adequately accommodates this desire to age-in-place.

Barrier-free walk-in showers have become increasingly popular, both for their spa style and aging-in-place accessibility benefits. Some homeowners are opting for larger stalls in place of infrequently-used tubs. These showers will typically have one or more benches for seated showering.
