As we get older we have different needs, due to our changing abilities and lifestyle. You might find that you need a grab bar to help yourself get in and out of the bathtub, or a high seated chair to make sitting down a little easier. There are many different types of furniture that are designed to make life easier for the elderly – including waterproof chairs.

We have a range of chairs in waterproof and anti-microbial fabrics, in a vast selection of colours and styles. These chairs are very easy to clean and they are impervious to liquid, although they are just as stylish and elegant as any other piece of furniture. No one will even know they are waterproof!

Read on to learn more about waterproof chairs, what they are for and how to choose the best one for your home.

Why Choose Waterproof Chairs?

Many elderly people choose waterproof chairs because they have continence problems. This is a common symptom of old age and it is nothing to be ashamed of. As the body gets older it loses some urinary control and sometimes accidents occur.

With the right continence pads and furniture, you can still live your life with dignity without having to pay for expensive steam cleaning of the furniture. The accident can be quickly cleaned up and you can carry on with your day. The best thing about these chairs is that they are very discreet. They look just like a normal chair and it is very difficult to tell that they are waterproof. Urinary incontinence can be embarrassing, so it is nice to have furniture that looks attractive and stylish so that you don’t have to reveal your secret to everyone who visits your home.

Also, waterproof chair fabrics can be very useful if you find yourself prone to spilling food or liquid. If you have limited mobility or a disease that causes you to tremble or shake, this can be a possibility. For example, you have made yourself a cup of tea and you are carrying it to your chair so that you can sit and watch television while you drink it. However, your hand trembles and you end up spilling the tea on the arm and the seat of your chair. With a regular chair, the tea would soak into the fabric and it would be difficult to remove the stain. However, with a waterproof chair you can simply wipe away the spilled tea and the chair will be as good as new.

Waterproof chairs are also a great option when you have grandchildren over and they get their sticky hands all over the chair or spill food into their lap. With a quick wipe the waterproof chair is clean again, no need to spend hours scrubbing the fabric or pay for an expensive steam cleaning. These chairs are so easy to clean and practical that you will be wondering why you haven’t had them your entire life!
