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!”

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.
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
“It was a good experience. We have used them a couple of times. They did very high quality work and I would not change any detail. They were very responsive. We did not really have any problems with them. They were right on schedule towards completing the project but their price was a little bit high.”
