When my father told me that he was getting too tired to keep his bedroom upstairs, I was actually happy to hear that he was ready to just stay on the first floor of his house. My younger brother lives with him, and he and his daughter can use the upstairs while Dad takes over the guest bedroom on the main floor. I knew that we would have to find a company that does bathroom remodeling in Bergen County NJ because the bathroom on the main floor was not used for showering.
I did not want Dad to have to climb the stairs even once a day to get a shower. It just took too much effort, and he had the money to have the main bathroom renovated to better suit his needs. I thought that having the tub ripped out and a shower installed with a bench in it would be the perfect solution, and he agreed with me. Since the shower would not take up the full area of where the tub is, we even talked about adding a small linen closet since the only storage space at the time was under the small sink.
I was able to find a reputable company, and someone came out to talk with Dad, my brother and myself. We explained what we wanted, then we were shown some pictures of other bathroom remodeling jobs they have done. We liked everything they had done in the past, and we were able to take a few ideas from the pictures and design the perfect bathroom for Dad. Once it was designed on paper, it did not take long for the contractors to rip the old bathroom out and completely redo it from the walls to a new toilet and shower. It looks so amazing now that I am actually thinking of having my own bathroom redone now too!
