Springfield - Remodeling Case Studies

Graceful Accessibility

Project Name
Graceful Accessibility
Project Summary
Both functional and beautiful properly describe this master bathroom remodel. Meeting full Veteran's Administration guidelines for wheelchair accessibility and full aesthetic desires for the supportive wife were equally important goals, and they came together wonderfully with great finishes and design that met everyone's desires.
Project Story
Current limited accessibility needs and very certain long-term accessibility needs were at the forefront of this master bathroom remodel for our homeowners - a military veteran and his wife. With a prosthetic leg, his days vary with the time spent traveling around in his wheel chair or on foot. Meeting the strict accessibility requirements would be somewhat easier if a person did not care about the aesthetics and only needed the function part of the equation addressed, but this remodel was able to accomplish both. These clients are fun, lively, and love their home. They still very much longed for it to be presentable for visitors and an enjoyable space for both of them.

A step in front of tub makes entrance with a single leg very difficult. Small shower space with barrier edge means no entrance with wheelchair.
