An outlet near the bottom of the toilet on the wall.. works great for plugging a night light in.. especially if there is a door closing it off.

We did almost all of these suggestions, except the curb-less shower. I came to be grateful for each item when I was caring for my 91 year old mother who just passed this December.

We have bidets in all the bathrooms. As folks age, the bending over part can make things difficult - and the folks that do not have any mobility issues love them as well!

Also the finished basement is an in-law suite with wheelshair-width doorways.
