TRADITIONAL ADA BATHROOM
One of the primary goals driving this renovation was opening the floor plan to enhance the ability of the homeowners to age in place. With concerns for mobility in the future, the client requested an ADA roll-in shower and the removal of the water closet in favor of a more open plan. Opening walls and expanding the shower also helped meet a secondary goal to increase the natural light in what was originally a fairly dark space. An early idea was to add or enlarge windows, but this brought some challenges including the exterior look of the home, privacy, and use of the outdoor space. Instead, fewer walls, the addition of glass, and the combination of gorgeous, reflective marble with a delicate Schumacher wall covering accomplished a bright and elegant space.
Finally, the custom vanity features a built-in mirror on the linen tower. This feature, combined with the recessed drawer stack and breakfront counter top allows the homeowner a small niche where she can sit to use the vanity while still maintaining the needed storage space within the cabinets.
The design team worked to address every functional detail to provide for the client’s needs while also capturing a classic interior style that blends seamlessly with the original design of this beautiful southern home.
