Hazard St – Bathroom Renovation
|Project scope||Update master bathroom with modern touches and better utilize natural light|
This townhome’s master bathroom measured up at a full 30 feet long, but its pale colors and visual interruption by the shower and furr down over the sinks made it feel enclosed and drab. We knew that allowing the natural light to reach all the way through from the windows to the doorway would instantly transform the room. In the process, we added a handful of universal design features that not only look great but can provide safe usage for the owners for many years.
- The new shower sports universal design features of curbless entry, ideal for either a standing or seated user, as well as a handheld shower head on a decorative slide bar that doubles as a grab bar. The accented tile on the front of the bench also aids in depth perception to prevent falls.
- The non-slip tile was similarly selected with aging-in-place in mind. The large format with rectified edge makes for minimal grout lines and the offset installation decreases lippage.
- The dual-height countertop with knee space allows wheelchair access or comfort height seating.
- LED can lighting provides extra light and visibility, an important aspect of aging-in-place.
- New custom cabinetry includes recessed medicine cabinet mirrors for additional storage.
