Universal Design in a Modern Bathroom Remodel
While preparing their home to age with them, our clients came to us with very specific needs to address. They wanted a modern style master bathroom that would be sleek and functional for many years to come. White corian countertops, beautiful wood cabinetry, and contemporary lighting, combined with polished chrome fixtures, pull together this modern ensemble.
Thoughtful use and application of Universal Design principles make this master bathroom future proof. The space under their sinks is large and open for a possible future wheelchair access. Heated porcelain tile floors insure comfort on cool mornings. The heated bidet seat provides a touch of luxury and practicality all wrapped into one.
The shower was designed with barrier free access. The wood grain patterned porcelain floor tile adds a touch of warmth to the room, and the accent glass mosaic tile in the niche adds a modern feel to the shower. The contrasting color and shade choices were made strategically to provide safe use even as eyesight is diminished with aging. With an adjustable shower head, that can also be a handheld, and a large grab bar, this shower is ready for all of life’s changes. This bathroom truly is a perfect combination of Modern and Universal Design.
