Accessible bathroom remodel in East Saint Paul, Manitoba
When this client began its search for an accessible bathroom remodeling contractor for an accessible washroom project, they needed one that could deliver on safety and looks. Especially their demands was to have a unique look but also keeping in mind the resale in the future. At Shift Accessibility, we have the skilled professionals up to the task, which is what we brought to this accessible bathroom remodel. We were able to complete the project within the desired timeline.
Our aging in place service for bathroom was an excellent match for customer’s home, which included a complete turnover of the bathroom. Our approach included extra time for cleaning, as we wanted to make sure the homeowner faced as little disruption as possible. Although the project was managed efficiently to be completed in a timely manner.
Challenges and details
Our client’s demands were simple in nature, as in it just had to be safe and look good. Simple right? Our initial assessment determined that the soon to-be accessible washroom was relatively small. Especially if we want to include all necessary items while having proper storage.
After looking at the space, we came up with a terrific layout and design that’ll please the safety, beauty and storage of the accessible washroom. Our list of amenities comprised of adding a zero threshold shower, safety accessible grab bars, bidet, non slip tile, heat lamp, new vanity and sink, and bright LED lighting with dimmers.
A solid structure
The work to be done meant the accessible bathroom remodel needed a full renovation. Everything was stripped right to the studs. This allowed us to install proper water proofing for the zero threshold shower and tile flooring. At the same time we added plywood on all of the walls. The plywood gives us the strength to support grab bars and aids around the bathroom. This enabled grab bars to be installed anywhere to make sure everything is within its optimal reaching distance.
Zero threshold shower, side grab bar and accessible toilet compartments
The accessible washroom shower was all done with tile and a seamless, barrier free entry. We fitted a new shower-head and controls with lever controls. We like to avoid any fixtures that require twisting, pinching or grasping. Those manoeuvres can be challenging for someone with decreased mobility. However, to go over and above accessibility, we located the shower controls at the entry of the shower. This allows them to be used from outside the shower before entering.
The new vanity and sink was installed which tied the accessible washroom together beautifully. We had the vanity in place with a lowered mirror to allow sitting at vanity. This avoids having to stand in front of the mirror for long periods of time, like doing hair for example.
This project turned out extremely well an I am proud of our team’s accomplishment. We can rest assured that our client will feel safe while using the space and that it will last for generations to come.
