Project Description (Problem/Solution/Results)
The homeowner, facing mobility challenges and using a wheelchair, found her Lafayette home increasingly unsuitable. The family room, an addition with a step-down entry, the kitchen’s narrow doorway, and bathrooms equipped with tub/shower combos presented significant accessibility issues.
The renovation aimed to enhance accessibility while keeping the homeowner’s preferences in mind. The family room floor was raised to level with the rest of the house, eliminating the step-down and ensuring easy wheelchair access. The space was refreshed with new carpet, paint, and an accent wall featuring stylish wallpaper.
In the kitchen, thoughtful redesigning of closet space on the opposite wall allowed for an expansion and more open layout. The new design improved workflow, increased countertop space, and ensured wheelchair accessibility. Appliances were rearranged to complement the new layout.
The bathrooms underwent a significant transformation, adhering to the homeowner’s favored blue theme, evident throughout the house. This theme was accentuated with unique wallpaper and blue marble-like tiles. Key to the bathroom remodels were accessibility features like multiple grab bars, a floating bench, and a hand sprayer in the shower, providing both comfort and safety.
This comprehensive renovation successfully addressed the homeowner’s mobility needs while infusing the home with a personal touch. The family room, kitchen, and bathrooms were transformed into spaces that are not only accessible but also aesthetically pleasing. The result is a home that is safe, comfortable, and beautifully tailored to its owner’s needs and tastes.
