With an eye toward the future, a retired orthopedic surgeon set his sights on an accessible master bathroom remodel in a historic high-rise in Northwest DC. Warm cherry cabinets with soapstone counters set the scene, but safety and flexibility take center stage in this master bath. A barrier-free shower features a fold-up bench and fold-down grab bar for adaptable use. The articulated shower head and hand shower—with waist-high thermostatic controls—and corner sink also cater to user preferences and abilities.Other forward-looking features include a multifunction bidet and foam rubber floor tiles for extra traction and comfort underfoot.
