This bathroom remodel was part of a larger kitchen and bath job for a retired couple who want to spend the rest of their lives in their home. This space was originally two bathrooms. One opened into the hall and one opened into the master bedroom.The clients wanted to have room to move around in their new bathroom and use a wheelchair if that ever becomes necessary. This renovation improved my clients’ lives by making trips to the bathroom easier, safer, and more comfortable.
Aging in place features:
Curbless shower in the corner of the bathroom
Shower has a built in seat with a fold own grab bar, a handheld shower head on a slide bar and a trench drain beneath the curtain to keep water off the bathroom floor.
Cabinets feature removable fronts for access and a countertop medicine cabinet for ease of use.
Linen cabinet is a custom built slide out cabinet mounted on drawer guides. When you pull the handle, the entire cabinet slides out and you can reach the shelves from both sides.
The small door under the linen closet is a laundry chute that leads to the laundry in the basement.
A 3′ pocket door provides plenty of room for access without using any floor space.
