Reader Feature: Doug Walter Accessible Bathroom Remodel
This renovation project has numerous accessibility features for this client with significant current needs. The client had experienced a stroke which resulted in higher function on her left side and her use of a power chair to get around.
The project yielded an accessible entrance to the raised ranch, wider doorways throughout, an accessible bathroom and kitchen, and a more chair-friendly interior.
The existing bathroom was opened up, taking out walls around the water closet and widening the closet access. A new roll in shower has both grab bars e and hand held shower. The water closet was rotated 90 degrees, with grab bars placed on her good side. The roll under vanity has a tilted mirror to accommodate standing or seated user. Lighting throughout was changed to LED for longevity. The existing bath was totally opened, and white marble-look tile used to unify the spaces. A large open area was provided to allow a turning circle for her power chair.
