Reader Feature: Doug Walter Accessible Bathroom Remodel


Outdated bathroom featuring standard shower and sink, pre accessible remodel
Before

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.


Accessible bathroom featuring grab bars around toilet
After

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.
