Getting older is often accompanied by some health problems including reduced mobility due to aching joints, decreased exercise and loss of muscle tone. For many, lifting their leg to climb over the side of the tub can be a challenge. This can be difficult even with safety bars. For those who live alone, bathing can be very stressful for fear of falling getting in or out of a conventional bathtub or fear of not being able to get out of the tub after a long hot soak. Walk-in bathtubs or walk in showers offer a safer alternative for older or disabled people to bathe independently and in privacy.

If you just purchased your home or are renovating it, you know that wallpaper borders can be a pesky item to remove. If you have the time and don’t want to invest a lot of money in removing it, you can easily remove it with the following steps: 1. Get a small spray flask and fill it with water. 2. Grab a towel for the next step. Repeatedly spray the wallpaper border until it is thoroughly wet. The water activates the glue on the back and makes it slimy, which in turn makes it easier to remove. 3. Simply rub the towel over it in a circular fashion and it will start peeling off the wallpaper.
Deciding which design to choose depends on several factors, the individual’s mobility, size of the existing bathroom, height and weight of the user, drain time – elderly people could get chilled waiting for the tub to drain, fill time – low water pressure may not be suitable for deep compact tubs because they take longer to fill, and quality – all walk-in tubs are not created equally. The tub should have a secure, leak-proof door so it is wise to check product reviews and warrantees.
