Combining Home Improvement Projects

Home improvement projects can be both large and small and both expensive and inexpensive. While making improvements to a home is rewarding for homeowners all projects, be them small or large, can become tedious, expensive, run over budget, and time-consuming. While those who take on large home improvement projects usually only do one at a time due to the cost and commitment required of such projects, homeowners facing a number of smaller improvement projects often benefit greatly from combining those projects into one mid-sized or larger project.

Handling many different smaller projects one at a time can be discouraging after the first one or two have been completed. Homeowners tend to lose their fervor and focus as small projects are started, completed, and then started again. By engaging in a little home improvement project osmosis, homeowners can get a better idea of the total cost, time demands, and completion time of all of their projects. It also helps homeowners stay focused by giving them a streamlined list of things that need to be done and a budget that encompasses everything and one that shouldn’t need to change during a project.

Combining home improvement projects isn’t always advisable but the process does work especially when smaller projects tend to have something in common. Take siding and window replacement for example. Separately these two projects can be daunting tasks that leave homeowners discouraged and/or frustrated at some point. By working closely with a contractor however and combining the two homeowners will save a good deal of time, hassle, and money. As replacing windows and a home usually involves removing parts of siding it makes sense that homeowners who want to do both at the same time by combining the projects. The same goes for kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects. More often than not the contractor a homeowner hires to remodel a kitchen or their bathroom will be more than capable of working on the both types of rooms. This can save a homeowner the hassle of having to find two separate contractors at two different times and from paying two different fees as well. Moreover, some contractors are flexible with their pricing and will offer a discount to homeowners who hire them to remodel two separate rooms at once. Other reasons it’s advisable to combine kitchen and bathroom remodel into one larger project is because they both involve plumbing. Buying parts and tools for plumbing is much easier on both homeowners and contractors when it’s all done at once rather than separately and at separate times.

The cohesive nature of combined home improvement projects, both small and large, offers homeowners an opportunity to take advantage of discounts, save time, and utilize one contractor for everything. Having all of their ducks in a row will give most homeowners peace of mind and allow them to be even more excited about completing all their home improvement projects.

Bathing Equipment for the Best Safety for the Elderly, Disabled or Recovering Patient

Bathroom safety is a concern for everyone. However if you are a senior citizen, disabled or recovering from an injury or surgery you may find the task of getting in and out of a bath tub more challenging. A large percentage of homes have bath tubs or combination bath tub/shower units. With either set up, a person may find it hard to remain standing and keep their balance while stepping over the side of the tub. With some simple and inexpensive medical equipment added to the bathroom safety home improvements can be made.

Moving around wet areas can be very dangerous if a person has any stability issues or challenges. Rubber bath mats can make wet surfaces less slippery to step and stand on and should be considered for use inside a bath tub. Medical bath boards are boards that fit across the bath tub. The bath board allows you to sit for stability while lifting your legs one leg at a time over the side of the tub. You can then stay seated on the bath board for bathing or showering. If you have enough arm strength you can lower yourself to a bath stool or bath seat. From the stool or seat you can then lower yourself to the bottom of the tub itself or remain seated on the stool or seat for bathing or showering. It is common to use bath boards in combination with bath stools or seats. Boards and seats are usually made of light weight materials and can easily be added or removed from the tub to accommodate other family members’ needs. Bath stools or benches can be found with or without handles or arms but do not come with backs. Bath seats or chairs do have backs and can be found with or without side arms. Bath benches and bath chairs can be found as foldable options for easy storage.

Home medical transfer benches are like a heavy duty bath board and bath chair combination. These benches have 2 legs that are on the outside of the tub where you sit down and 2 legs on the inside of the tub under the chair section. They have one arm or handle attached to the chair section inside the tub. Some models come with a cut out section in the front of the chair that make them more comfortable for men and allow for easier cleaning of the personal parts between your legs. Other models offer a combination commode style where you can remove the catch pail for bathing and allows for the same accessibility for cleaning. Transfer benches can be easily removed from the tub to accommodate other family members bathing preferences. Some transfer benches offer vinyl padding for a softer seated area.

Durable stability medical equipment in the form of grab bars inside the tub or shower area can be added as further safety precautions. A floor to ceiling rail outside the tub or shower can provide assistance to a bather pivoting into or out of the tub and assist them in standing from a sitting position as when using a bath board or transfer bench.

When considering bathing equipment additions for your home or for a loved one, consult with a medical physician or occupational therapist on what the best affordable set up for the individual would be based on their needs and medical restrictions.
