For those that require a home shower that is 1)
easily accessible without some kind of 'bump,' 2)
treats your feet like a warm pair of houseshoes, and 3)
can be done over time if you have an alternative shower to use, you might be interested in this project. I had a neighbor recently that had to move his mother in due to health reasons, but grew tired of lifting his mom and her shower chair into position every single day.
The solution was a shower remodel complete with grippy-material
entry ramp and heated floors. Yes, there are such things as heated shower floors
. Basically, these are heated mats that heat the ceramic tiles up on the floor of your shower (if it's tile and not polycarbonate or something). Prefab units are easy to find at specialty plumbing stores or contractor supply locations. Want to heat other ceramic tile areas? Go for it.
If you're about to remodel your guest or master bathroom, installing heated floors may be an investment you'd like to make -- I know I would. According to instructables.com
, heating kits can be had for $600 or so, although I'm not sure eBay would be a preferred transaction venue for this type of material -- your mileage may vary.
