Project Insight

The intent of this design is to create an accessible large bathroom from a master & main bathroom. The client wants the bathroom to be spa-like, beautiful, and inviting for everyone. The scope is blending neutral colors, expanding the client bedroom and office doorway, relocating the linen closet, build in the wheelchair turning diameter into the hallway, and creating the bathroom to be warm and inviting. The concerns are giving it a comfortable feel while maintaining the clients’ accessible needs, supporting the contractor’s timeframe, and providing the details so it will be functional and useable for the client when she is no longer able to walk due to her medical conditions. This is achieved by continuing the hallway flooring into the bathroom and adding a small doorway to the master bedroom so the client can currently walk into the bathroom. The plumbing is maintained to keep cost down, which means two sinks (one being accessible) and two toilets (one being accessible). The shower is the showpiece of the bathroom since it is visible from the hallway. This is done by incorporating a pocket door so it will not intrude into the wheelchair turning radius. The stunning fold-down teak bench is contrasted against the Corian shower walls. The plumbing fixtures are coordinated with the grab bars to blend into the spa-like bathroom. The client is overjoyed with the end results and in “AWE” of her spa-like bathroom.
