Project Description

Remodeling Need

This homeowner sought to renovate their master bathroom to improve functionality and accommodate the needs of their daughter who uses a wheelchair. Their primary goals were to create a more spacious feel, ensure accessibility, and incorporate modern fixtures and storage solutions.

Design Solutions

  • Vanity: A furniture-style cabinet with individual framed mirrors and undermount sinks was chosen, emphasizing style without compromising on leak prevention. The color scheme remains flexible, with brushed nickel fixtures adding a timeless appeal.
  • Shower: A zero-entry shower design was implemented for easy wheelchair access, featuring minimal glass to simplify entry. A partial wall was added for water containment, and the shower was equipped with a handheld unit separate from the rain shower head, catering to both functionality and luxury. The shower area includes a recessed niche for ample storage and a bench for added comfort.
  • Storage: Addressing the family’s storage concerns, innovative solutions were integrated throughout the bathroom, including in the vanity and shower areas.
  • Accessibility: The layout was meticulously planned to accommodate a shower-ready wheelchair, with a big, bench-equipped shower ensuring safety and ease of use. ADA considerations were carefully integrated into the design.
  • Toilet and Bathtub: A modern, durable toilet was installed. The decision to forgo a bathtub in favor of a spacious shower reflects the family’s preferences and the room’s functional priorities.

The Result

This remodel not only enhanced the bathroom’s functionality and accessibility but also brought it into the modern era with a stylish design and thoughtful features, perfectly aligning with the family’s needs and lifestyle.
