The major challenge of transforming this small 40 square foot bath into a beautiful, modern, luxurious spa bath with a larger feel, for a disabled elderly client, was successfully achieved. This major remodel incorporates both universal and sustainable design principles. The project was commissioned by a Millennial couple for their elderly mother/mother-in-law, who resides with them. The clients requested a Transitional Design or Modern Traditional Style Spa Bath that would function safely for their elderly, disabled loved one who suffers from arthritis, knee, and balance problems. They also requested a light gray, white and beige color palette. The following were incorporated into the design to meet the design needs: a custom built-in shower bench and toiletry niche, easier-access shower door, lowered floor threshold for shower access, comfort height toilet, widespread faucets, and tilted mirror. Low-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints were used, new porcelain wood plank flooring, new single vanity, new marble countertop, and energy-efficient vanity lights. Focal wall features decorative glass mosaic tiles bordered by light gray and darker gray striped porcelain tiles for a luxurious feel.
