An accessible master bath that does not sacrifice style!
This accessible master bath was dramatically redesigned to increase safety and accessibility for a family member with a prosthetic leg. The result was both gorgeous and practical. The Level Entry Shower System was a perfect fit for their needs. The family wanted to reduce slipping and tripping hazards in their shower. Addding grab bars and improving the accessibility of the tub were also key improvements they wanted to make.
They had some spatial constraints as well. They were unable to move the location of the shower, or increase its size by much. The flexibility of the VIM Level Entry Shower System allowed them to create a true curbless shower in a relatively small alcove space. Their tub was also customized with grab bars and under-mounted in Quartzite. This made it easier to sit comfortably on the edge of the tub allowing for easier entrance and exit from the tub.
The design elements were also very important to the family. Even their daughter got involved in the selection of fixtures, finishes, and colors! Their interior designer, Nancy Bolen of Salem, NC brought their whole vision together seamlessly! Their plumbing fixtures were supplied by Splash Galleries in Raleigh, NC.
What we love about this accessible master bath remodel is that through quality design and carefully selected materials and fixtures, they created a safer bathing space for their family that is also a stylish highlight of their home’s design!
