homeowners looking to age in place. Even though
water is less contained, all surfaces in a wet room
are waterproofed to effi ciently resist moisture, and
the fl oors are sloped toward the drain for water
management. This makes wet rooms easier to
maintain - an entire bathroom can be sprayed
down - and easier to navigate in a wheelchair or
walker because of their lack of any barrier.
" Th is may not be the shower you're used to, "
said Dr. Rosemarie Rossetti, CLIPP, president
of Rossetti Enterprises Inc., who often hears of
homeowners worrying that a shower without a
door or a wet room might be cold. " It's not going
to be cold without a door, but it will be easier to get
in and out of with a scooter if you need to. "

WELLNESS FOR ALL, ALL THE TIME
Along with a safer environment, everyone in a
household benefi ts from a healthier space, whether
that stems from cleaner air, water or germ-free
surfaces. Consumers are especially concerned
about cleanliness after 2020, and manufacturers
are fulfi lling that demand.
" Cleanliness is a priority that will stay after the
pandemic ends, " said Karen Smith, brand communication
coordinator for Blum, citing that
touch-to-open cabinets are especially in demand
with waste drawers. " Having the ability to touch
the cabinet face with a hip, elbow, knee or even the
back of your hand reduces the spread of germs and
saves time from constantly wiping down handles
and fronts. "
Indoor air quality is also top of mind. Stern
recommends using materials and furniture with
low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that
avoid off -gassing, which can cause ailments like
asthma over time. Low-VOC paint and counter20

said Constance DiBacco, the shower systems

or dexterity diffi culties.
" The technology available to us is becoming
so easy to install and comfortable to use, "
said Bill Strang, president of corporate strategy,
e-commerce and customer experience for TOTO.
