Accessible Elegance

Michelle already worked with the client on the design color and selection scheme in the vanity area and knew the style they would work with. However, the true design challenge for this area was to be sure that the client covered all of her options for safety, accessibility & ease of maintenance. Several of the elements of her existing tub/shower area were outdated and ... well ... dangerous!
Slabs of granite were chosen to match the vanity countertop. This material also allowed for an under mounted installation of the bathtub which is much easier to clean than tile with grout and has little maintenance. The tub was also pushed as close the the plumbing wall as possible to allow for a seat as the client climbs in.
The hinges shower door panel keeps the water from splashing during a shower but doesn’t have a track to get in the way when bathing or cleaning. The addition of a tradition “telephone” faucet as the spout allows the client to control the temp, pressure and hand-held fixture without getting in to turn it on or standing up while in the tub. Decorative grab bars which double as towel holders and recessed niches were also “must have” elements for safety and style.
