Ocean Themed Accessible Bathroom

Ocean Themed Aging-in-Place Bathroom

Jo hired us to design a bathroom that reminded her of the ocean. This bathroom space was severely limited by it's small size and a structural beam that would have been costly to move. We gave the bathroom a more spacious, open feel with a glass paneled entry door, a skylight and frameless, half-shower door. A well designed vanity cabinet, linen cabinet, and over-the-toilet cabinet including a top hinge door give this new bathroom more than enough room.

“... I appreciated their high level of professionalism, even perfection at times in different aspects of the project. I love my new bathroom!”

Project Details

Unique Design

We built the shower door with an ocean wave inspired radius. Jo picked the tile and color palette to resemble tropical blue oceans. A clever design element added reed glass to the bathroom door, which maintains privacy, but makes the bathroom feel more spacious. The glass door also brings sunlight filtering in from the skylight into the hallway outside the bathroom.

European Wet Room: A Waterproof floor

The entire bathroom floor and shower walls were coated with the Laticrete Hydroban waterproofing system prior to tile installation. This entire bathroom floor will hold water as well as any tub. The wet room with a curbless shower eliminates the largest physical barrier in the bathroom, the bathtub. It is unique in the sense that it opens up a room, making the floor seamless by blending the whole space together as one.

Curbless Shower

When creating an accessible design, it's important to consider all potential obstacles, such as lighting, doors, and floor obstructions. In this case, we eliminated the curb, made the floor waterproof, and used a shortened shower door to make entrance into the shower as easy as possible. Curbless showers change the functional dynamic of the room and are a new design statement.

What our Clients are Saying

“We could not have been happier with our experience working with G. Christianson. Super organized. Professional. Super high quality work. Responsive. Kind and generous. We had one point of discussion that was handled quickly, professionally and with equanimity. Our kitchen remodel has changed our home, not only structurally but how we live here. And that could not have been done without the good folks from G. Christianson.”

“G. Christianson repaired some serious water damage from a leaky roof in our dining room. They did excellent work, with great attention to detail at all times. The repairs blended seamless into the rest of the house...”
