I was helping my mom with a remodel of her home and everything was going really well. We had ripped out carpets and changed almost everything! My mom was getting older, so she wanted a safer place to live so there wasn’t as many risks for her falling. It was important to her, so we helped. When doing the bathroom, we knew we had to find shower doors in Morris county NJ that were suited for her. We needed sliding doors, but we had no idea the options available to us.
We walked into the showroom and Jim, the man who ended up helping us, came over and asked if he could help us with anything. I explained to him that my mom was getting older and we were looking for some sliding doors to replace her current shower doors. He lead us over to the selection that he had to sliding doors and talked to us about the rain glass or the clear glass. Then he asked if we had ever considered something more plexiglass and not real glass, as that would be safer. We hadn’t even thought of that option. He lead use then to different materials that showers are made of and we went with a faux-glass plexiglass material.
The best option for us was a smudged glass, that way my mom could have privacy but if something were to happen to her, it was clear enough that someone would know that she is in there and that she needs help. The other options for an opening door didn’t really work as well as the sliding glass. We did consider an open shower, but if she had fell or something like that, there was nothing to break her fall.
In the end, Jim recommended us to a cheap guy he knows that can install handicap handrails and stuff in the shower and really help my mom more with feeling safe in the shower. We ended up calling him and let me tell you between the shower door experience and this, I can’t believe how smooth it all went!
