From Here to Infinity

October 25, 2017

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 37.3% of injuries occurred during bathing or showering.  Even more importantly, for those of us (me included) who are approaching our "golden years", the incidence of falls goes up with each decade of life. 

Most fall injuries are (surprisingly) caused by falls on the same level and while standing rather than from elevated falls (e.g., from stairs).

And while the shower curb is typically no more than 4 inches in height, it remains a glaring tripping hazard in most bathrooms.

So, okay, on to the fun part -  creating a barrier-free, fall preventive bathroom!  I have long admired Infinity Drains - such a lovely little piece of bathroom hardware (and I'm not getting paid to say this either)!  They are not only beautifully designed, but they provide a real, practical solution to achieving a barrier-free bathing and showering zone.

Infinity Drains (the company) has been around since 2007, and their drain designs are not only gorgeous, but they offer linear, center, and custom design options for anyone wanting to create a fabulous bathing/shower area while keeping safety-first design principles in mind.

So if you're thinking about a shower or bathtub remodel, and you're planning to live in your home for the long haul, PLEASE don't forget to consider safe (while still beautiful) floor designs - Infinity Drains!
