Kirkwood, MO Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom

This accessible master bathroom is the winner of a 2017 Chrysalis Award for Residential Universal Design.

A Kirkwood, MO couple needed to remodel their condo master bathroom to be easily accessible for the husband in his power chair. The original bathroom had become an obstacle course and they needed a streamlined, efficient space.

The new design moves all plumbing fixtures to one wall, which creates a large, open space to maneuver in. A wall-mounted sink works nicely whether standing or sitting. A standard toilet is outfitted with a bidet seat with remote control operation.

The barrier-free, walk-in shower has two impressive accessibility features. The shower faucet panel incorporates a hand held shower, a rainfall head and 8 adjustable nozzles in one convenient, temperature-controlled package. In the opposite corner is a full body dryer with manual or timer control.

Add two kinds of durable and easy to clean floor tile (the blue shower tile also appears on the sink backsplash!), serene grey onyx shower surround and wall paint, and they have a bathroom that makes a beautiful and productive difference in their lives.

The shower is either walk-in or roll-in, depending if you're in a power chair, or not. Small blue ceramic tile creates a non-slip ground. Grab bars and a wall niche keep the space uncluttered. Mounted to the wall is a Blue Ocean 52" Stainless Steel Thermostatic Shower Panel, with a rainfall shower head and 8 adjustable nozzles. Photo by Toby Weiss for Mosby Building Arts

The cobalt blue porcelain tile on the shower floor also makes a dashing appearance above the wall-mounted Condal ceramic sink, with plenty of room below for a wheelchair. The mirror is a Kensington Pivot model to adjust to the heights of each user. Photo by Toby Weiss for Mosby Building Arts
