Do you have children? 4 safety tips In the bathroom
Most accidents take place in the home. If you have children, bathroom safety is undoubtedly high on the agenda. Don't know where to start to make your bathroom child-friendly? Then read on. These tips should not be missing from your checklist.
1. ANTISLIP MATS FOR THE SHOWER AND FLOOR
Slipping in the shower is impossible with an antislip mat. Such mats are also available for the bathroom floor for that matter. After all, how often has a bathroom mat slipped from under your feet? You simply lay the anti-slip mats on the floor under your regular mats, so that the latter always stay securely in place.
2. CHILD-FRIENDLT BATHROOM TAPS
Little hands can sometimes get caught out by a red-hot bathroom tap. But not with a child-friendly Grohe bathroom tap with CoolTouch. Thanks to a cold water barrier below the surface, it never gets hotter than the mixing water itself. Grohe mixers are also available with a Safestop, which prevents the water from exceeding 38 degrees.
3. (NEARLY) EVERYTHING WITHIN REACH
Children are not afraid to perform hair-raising tricks when they can't reach something. Therefore, hang the shower caddy low enough so that they can reach everything themselves, and also provide a stepstool in front of the wash basin. Keep items that your children should not touch out of sight.
4. INSTALLING A WALK-IN BATHTUB
Sooner or later your child will want to get in and out of the bathtub by themselves. The risk of slipping then becomes real, even with antislip mats.
Unless you have a bathtub with a step-in door installed. Your child can then get in and out of the bath on their own, and you have an adapted bath for your old age.
