How to Choose the Right LOUIS Shower Seat & Grab Bar for Your Bathroom
Before we explain how you can choose the right LOUIS shower seat and grab bar for your bathroom, you should know that they are an economical and convenient solution for people who require a safe and comfortable place to rest as well as assistance getting in and out of the shower.
Put simply, they are designed to suit the needs of both the elderly and people with special needs. Hence, the cost of a LOUIS shower seat and grab bar varies depending on the design, size, and material. Here’s how you can choose the right LOUIS shower seat and grab bar for your bathroom:
Consider the design and space available in your bathroom
Shower seats and grab bars come in a variety of designs for different purposes. Having said that, the shower seats at Fullsun generally come in two common designs, with and without legs.
Shower seats with legs provide more stability as they typically come with backrests and are wider in size, which makes them comfortable to sit on. Shower seats without legs, on the other hand, have narrower seating and can come with or without a backrest. Hence, your choice of shower seat should fit nicely into your bathroom.
As for the grab bar, it’s worth considering 2-in-1 options if you have limited wall space. Using a towel rack for support may not be the best option as it may lead to unwanted mishaps when your family members yank their towel from the rack.
With a range of LOUIS grab bars available at Fullsun, you can select one that is best suited to your bathroom. That way, you can prevent mishaps from happening while ensuring the safety of your family members.
Consider the height and orientation of the shower seat and grab bar
Shower seats with height-adjustable legs are only available for wall-hung shower seats. Hence, the adjustable height range varies from chair to chair, so make sure you check the specifications and select one that meets your bathroom’s needs.
Since the dimension of our LOUIS grab bars is based on bca accessibility code, it will definitely be suitable for use by persons with special needs and families with elderly persons. Plus, the grab bars can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
Also, different grab bars of different length and height can be used for different purposes. For instance, an L-shaped grab bar can be used in the shower area to provide support. Other types of grab bar can be used in the toilet bowl area etc.
Consider the materials of the shower seat and grab bar
Since you will be installing the shower seat and grab bar in the bathroom, you will want the two bathroom fixtures to be made of materials that can withstand regular exposure to water.
As such, you should consider shower seats and grab bars that are made of rust-resistant materials such as high-density polyethene, aluminium, or stainless steel. You can even select a shower seat that’s made of nylon as they are fade-resistant, lockable, hygienic, anti-bacterial, and anti-slip.
Additionally, consider getting a shower seat with drain holes in the seat. This will prevent water build-up along with mould and mildew.
