The Aging in Place market is one of the most important change drivers in the bathroom marketplace. It is forcing suppliers to change the way products are designed to meet the needs of this growing demographic. More and more baby boomers desire to stay in their homes as long as possible before transitioning to ,assisted living. This requires modifications in bathroom to make showers and bathrooms both more functional for older Americans, as well as more safe. The bathroom and shower is one of the most dangerous rooms in the house and is prone to accidents for senior citizens, as well as consumers of all ages.
We noticed the same trends in bathroom safety products that we saw in the bathroom and shower market over the last ten years. Most of the products available have very institutional clinical looks to them. All of the products look similar with heavy tubular frames and functional, but less than attractive materials. We had witnessed how elated our customers were to have attractive shower benches and seats, that added to the beauty of their bathrooms, rather than detracting from it.
We searched the world over to find products for shower and bathroom safety that were also luxurious and stylistic. For the first time in the USA consumers now have an alternative to industrial looking shower benches and seats. We have partnered with two leading European companies that share our vision and passion for providing not only functional products, but also luxury contemporary designs. We are pleased to be appointed the exclusive North American importer and distributor for these companies.
