As we approach the year end holidays, we start planning festivities that include visits from families near and far. For grandparents who love visiting their children and grandchildren, it's important to add safety features to your house. Bathroom grab bars are one of the most important safety features for loved ones staying overnight. Grab bars are also pretty ugly. That's been a problem for years, especially with homeowners turning their bathrooms into spa like retreats.
