The homeowner of this project has progressive health issues, and wanted to transform a standard bathroom into a fully-accessible bathroom with better function, safety, and custom appearance. The homeowner may have to use a walker or wheelchair in the future, so he was open to suggestions for solutions to achieve the fully-accessible bathroom he wanted. The primary function and safety strategy during the design phase was to allow for a 5-foot turning radius, create front and side access to the toilet, put in a new shower with an inline drain, drop-down seat, and grab bars.
The team ran into some challenges with the 5-foot turning radius, as the bathroom is surrounded by 5’ wide side yard, the closet, the bedroom, and the kitchen. There was no way to make it larger. They created an open floor plan and widened the doorways to allow for wheelchair access. They also moved the faucets towards the center and sides of the lavatories, to allow for a wheelchair user to be able to reach.
