Living for Today and Tomorrow
Dated fixtures and finishes aside, the pair of empty nester Homeowners wanted to live in their home for as long as they chose to, not as long as the home was able to accommodate them. Therefore, Universal Design principals were incorporated throughout this master bathroom remodel to facilitate Aging in Place. Removing the never used tub, taking down the wall and installing a grab bar, redefining the water closet rendered the room not only more accessible but more functional. Floating vanity base cabinets, a make-up counter, pull-out base cabinets, a sloped shower pan and retrofitted pocket door provide maximum accessibility. Lastly, the wall cabinet over the vanity minimizes 'counter clutter' by not only providing storage but an outlet for the electric tooth brush. An easily overlooked detail is the cherry window jambs and casing, stained to match the cabinetry. In all, this space provides a beautiful and functional start to the day!
"My husband and I are delighted with our new master bathroom! Molly worked with us to incorporate our ideas and needs into an esthetically pleasing and highly functional, low maintenance design. As a retirement age couple we wanted to include design features and fixtures that would allow us to age in place without appearing institutional. We love our spacious, low threshold shower and the seated vanity! Molly's attention to detail, her meticulous documentation, and willingness to consult with our contractor resulted in a successful partnership and the timely completion of our project. Thank you Molly and Clive!" ~ Margaret B.
