His bathroom had undergone a modern transformation from the original. Clad from floor to ceiling in serene blue, the Italian glass tiles needed repair and the exotic wood sink was cracked and beyond saving. His bathroom was obviously in need of improvement.
The cantilevered wood sink/shelf unit was removed, creating more space within the shower. In its place, a sleek stainless steel basin shines from beneath luminescent, synthetic white granite. Suspended from the wall, it keeps the small room spacious. Wire shelves, tucked neatly into a corner, hold shampoo, soap and shaving essentials. Dividing the shower and sink area into separate bathing zones is a simple spray panel, tucked beneath the soffit above. A halogen light fixture bathes the space with bright light, made softer by a frosted glass shade.
This bathroom is now an updated, functional space for the lucky man who inhabits it … for many years to come.
This is an Aging In Place project with comfort features such as:
- bright light fixtures with halogen bulbs
- adjustable hand shower which accommodates a bather who is either standing or sitting
- large entry into shower
- thermostatically controlled shower valve with anti-scald feature
