Preparing for a live-in caregiver, our client needed their basement bathroom, bedroom, and main area renovated. Therefore, in the bathroom, the existing bathtub, tub surround, toilet, and vanity were completely removed. To encapsulate a new injector pit, the concrete floor was drilled and a new vanity was installed on the opposite wall. The back wall was moved 7” to make room for a larger shower area and built-in shelving. Keeping with a neutral palate, tones of white and gray were chosen for the vanity, mirror, 12 x 24 shower wall tile, pebble stone tile, and luxury vinyl tile flooring.
Incorporating a “Universal Design” approach, all the doorways were modified to the ADA standard of 36” in width. Luxury vinyl plank flooring was installed throughout the entire area to prevent slipping. All doorknobs were exchanged for lever handles for easier gripping.
Now the new caregiver can have his or her private access to the new space with updated paint, flooring, lighting, and a state-of-the-art full bath.
