A Lifetime of Comfort-Master Suite Remodel; Bethesda, MD

With thoughtful reconfiguration we altered the first floor of this home to allow for full wheelchair access, meeting the necessary ADA requirements. The need for barrier-free entrances to the shower created a challenge; the answer: a linear drain amid imperceptibly ramped tiles that direct the water without modifying the floor system. Other unique elements include a shallow-depth vanity with extended basin, a self-cleaning bidet-combo toilet, thermostatic hand shower and an overhead rain shower head for bathing. Our careful procurement of attractive, accessible materials keep this bathroom feeling upscale instead of clinical.
