Nonslip river-rock flooring

Remodeling Now to Avoid Accessibility Problems Later


The new master bath in her four-bedroom ground-floor unit, built in 1995, has a river rock shower, towel racks that function as grab bars and plenty of floor space to maneuver a wheelchair or walker if needed. (Three other bathrooms were given minor facelifts, too.)

“The bathroom reminds me of standing in a North Carolina stream bed, skipping stones,” said Mrs. Carlin. “You would never know it’s fully accessible.

Comment: Interesting NY Times article. Our house is fairly accessible but our MB tile is very slippery. Kathee has non-slip backed rugs that help. But if the rugs are in the wash ... oh my! I once did a complete fall on my back on our bath tile. Our bath tile is now almost 17 years old and could be a replacement project soon (grout is loose and we have at least one cracked tile)

  1. Nice I also share with you something hope this helpful for you my friends. Non-slip flooring increases the safety of any room. Commonly found in high traffic areas of kitchens and bathrooms, they can quickly build up with dirt and grime. The texture of these floors may seem hard to clean, but the build-up can be removed. Get ready to put forth some effort and spend a little time restoring your floors to their original beauty. Check it out thanks.
