The client, who uses a wheelchair, lives in a beautiful single-story home near the beach and has no interest in moving, but the master shower and bathroom were small and very difficult to access. The builder removed walls to create more open space and widened doorways to give better access.
A roll-in shower offers many features for accessibility: no-threshold entry, fold-down shower seat, multiple grab bars, handheld showerhead within easy reach, niches for access to shower products, and more. The toilet was elevated for easier wheelchair transfer and a bidet was added to help facilitate personal hygiene. Cabinetry was designed specifically for the client’s needs. The vanity was sized and cherry cabinetry in the bedroom has an automated closet pole that can be electronically controlled for placement that makes it easy to reach. Custom bi-parting barn doors were installed that only require one hand to operate and glide effortlessly for comfortable, unobtrusive use.
