Life Should Be Lived Without Barriers
When it comes to aging-in-place, one of the most important rooms to consider is the bathroom. It’s a room you use every day, and with the added safety issue of showering or bathing, it’s easy for it to become a dangerous place if not outfitted properly.

For those who prefer to spend their 15 minutes of relaxation in a shower, a walk in shower is a great alternative to a bathtub. No matter your age or stage in life, you can remodel your bathroom with a walk in or barrier-free shower with amenities and options to provide the access you need, without sacrificing aesthetics or functionality. Walk in showers usually offer a variety of curb height options that are easy to step over and compliments adding a shower door too.
Many of our premier walk in showers are available with convenient features like soap dishes, large molded shower seats for comfortable & easy bathing or storage caddies. Walk in Showers help reduce the risk of slips and falls in the bathroom, which is a main concern when selecting a walk in shower for those interested in staying in their home for years to come and their long term needs.
The shower (or bath) is a crucial element of an aging-in-place bathroom design. One of the most frequently selected design options for making your bath more age-friendly is replacing an existing tub or shower and installing a walk in shower or barrier-free shower or even a walk in bathtub.

Barrier Free Shower

In addition to being easier to access, we can offer you a variety of accessories, including built-in seating, grab bars, customized shelving and more! The danger of stepping into a bathtub is eliminated, and a low threshold handicapped accessible shower can be used by people of all abilities with peace of mind and safety. Fiderio & Sons additionally offers bathroom remodeling and other ADA handicap accessible showers built for the demands of healthcare facilities, assisted living centers, retirement communities or condo associations.
Adding A First Floor Bathroom
Some two-story homes, especially in certain parts of the country or in older, more established neighborhoods, have only one bathroom; upstairs, close to the bedrooms. While that made sense years ago, it also created problems for anyone who had trouble climbing stairs. Chair lifts can help with this, but a bathroom on the first floor is very important when you’re planning on aging in place.
If your home doesn’t have a lot of space on the first floor, creating a bathroom may seem difficult. But there are generally a variety of ways to make space by giving up part or all of a bedroom, sun porch, patio, office, or another small room that you aren’t really using as much as you may a bathroom. A large closet can also be part of a bathroom conversion, or lastly, adding a small bump-out addition to add the extra space necessary for a bathroom on the first floor. With a larger space converted to a bathroom, you will gain a much safer and easier space to bathe while enhancing your home for years to come as you age.
Aging In Place & Universal Design Options Are Endless
At Fiderio & Sons, we specialize in bathroom remodeling whether it is the entire bathroom you need or want to update or just the tub or shower that might need to be replaced. In many cases, homeowners may decide to renovate the bathroom in order to accommodate their growing need for bathing with ease, comfort and safety. When you partner with Fiderio & Sons, we can upgrade the look as well as the functionality of the bathroom with purposeful design and renovations. Whether your bathroom needs a simple face-lift or a spacious shower instead of a bathtub, you can trust our team to do an exceptional job.
Some popular aging in place renovations might include:
We frequently install replacement shower, tub and walk in tubs and many homeowners choose to add a shower seat which can add comfort and safety to your bathing experience. There are many types of shower seats to choose from, such as shower stools, shower chairs, retractable or fold-down shower seats, or even a built-in bench that can be a more seamless design update.
Grab Bars & Handrails
Installing grab bars can dramatically and economically increase safety in the bathroom. If you are thinking about remodeling your bathroom anytime soon, you might want to go ahead and install bracing in walls around the tub, shower, shower seat, and toilet. If the bracing is completed at the time Fiderio & Sons replace your shower or tub, then installing grab bars or handrails can be done seamlessly in the future when you are ready for this added feature.
Showerhead & Hardware
Another often overlooked remodel element for aging-in-place shower and bath solutions is the showerhead itself. Consider adding an adjustable shower head, or combining it with a hand-held shower for a more functional experience. Lever handle faucets are also the most user-friendly for those with arthritis or hand-mobility issues. We offer a variety of fixtures and hardware selections when you replace your shower or tub with Fiderio & Sons.
A wet room is a space fully constructed with materials designed to get wet. Many new wet rooms include a shower space and freestanding tub in their own area or glass enclosure separate from the sink and toilet areas. The space created by the wet room allows for a seamless design between the shower or bath area and the rest of the bathroom.
