Business owners, like homeowners, take their spaces seriously. Just like savvy homeowners who thrive on keeping their kitchens or baths current with today’s trends, business owners are doing the same by taking a closer look at their commercial spaces to gain a competitive edge by creating a fresh and inviting look that is both customer and budget-friendly.
A Sign of the times
If you’ve been on the fence about whether it’s worth the investment to update your business space, then you most likely already know the answer. Unfortunately, your customers may be taking notice too, and wondering what you’re waiting for. Let’s face it- their money is green no matter where they go. We all want the most for our money, and that doesn’t always mean just the product or services. The way your space makes them feel has more to do with it than you think. Have you ever walked into an establishment and gotten a bad vibe because it looked old and outdated?
First impressions are lasting impressions
There’s something to say about first impressions so let’s start with asking yourself some questions to evaluate your space. If you answer yes more than no to the following questions, then it may be time to give your commercial space a makeover. Does your…
space look outdated compared to your competition?
space appear run down, need repair or some TLC?
flooring show noticeable wear in high-traffic areas?
countertop have scratches, dents or stains or appear worn out?
rest room need a makeover?

Did you know an elderly person dies every 19 minutes from a fall? That’s three per hour. What’s worse is how the number of injuries that happen in the bathroom increase as seniors age. And considering most people use the bathroom about seven times a day, the chances of a fall are even greater. If you have an aging parent or loved one, then you may already be facing this reality.
The good news is there are proactive measures to help seniors feel more at ease in the bathroom while maintaining their dignity and independence. Here are some important bathroom safety tips that may help prevent injuries and bring peace of mind:
Installing grab bars in, around and outside the tub or shower is a must for ensuring stability. Just be sure the placements of the bars are in easy-to-reach areas and installed at the proper height to gain hold.
Raised Toilet Seat with Arms
This is by far one of the easiest and most used bathroom safety features to keep aging seniors safe and comfortable in their own bathrooms. Raised toilet seats with arms not only reduce the distance to sit and stand but give stability and peace of mind. Plus, they are easy to install and remove without using any tools.
Wall Mounted Grab Bars
Wall mounted grab bars by the toilet provide secure support when sitting and standing. Just be sure they are properly positioned and installed to ensure safety.
Shower seats may be one of the best investments you make. Showering may not seem like a strenuous activity, but for an aging adult it can feel as if they ran a marathon and they can become dizzy and unsteady. Whether the choice is to have one installed, as shown here, or to purchase a free standing shower chair, seniors will be able to shower with confidence.
Other important bathroom safety tips
You can never be too careful. After all, one fall can land an aging loved one in the hospital—or worse. Here are some other bathroom safety tips to keep in mind:
Place non-skid mats or decals on the shower or tub floor to help prevent slipping
Keep toiletries in easy reach
Place nightlights in the bathroom and wherever you can to light the way for your loved one’s walk from the bedroom to the bathroom
Use anti-slip mats instead of throw rugs around the shower or tub.
Be sure faucets are clearly marked “hot” and “cold” and are easy to turn, as scorching hot water can take seniors by surprise and put them at risk of losing their balance.
You can’t put a price on safety. Are you or a loved one considering a bathroom renovation? Contact Granite and Trend Transformations for a free in-home consultation today. And remember, safety first!
