Safe and Serene oday's homes must be designed to meet a multitude of needs, whether the homeowners are older and interested in aging in place or a young couple with small children in their first home. The bath is the room where safety is of the greatest concern, and manufacturers of the products that grace this space are constantly pushing the enve- lope when it comes to beautiful products that provide the optimum in comfort and security. Floating vanities, grab bars and bidet-type toilet options provide cus- tom capabilities when it comes to space placement. And products such as zero-threshold showers, touch-free faucets and non-slip surfaces add ease of use and accessibility.
