Bathroom Renovation Completed!!!!! Some ADA helpful ideas.
After 3 months & 3 days, our only bathroom is finally completed.
We have a Spanish Revival house that was built in 1929. My husband has MS and uses a wheelchair so we have had to make special retros in the house for his needs. Most important was the bathroom. While we originally wanted to stay true to the 1929/30's architecture (subway tiles, hexagonal flooring, etc...), we realized that it would impractical - trying to keep all the grout lines clean with a wheelchair would be next to impossible.
We also opted to forego a bathtub & went with a barrier-free shower. With a slight slope in the shower floor towards the shower drain there has been no need to have a 2nd drain outside the shower or use a curtain.
Instead, we chose to do a cross between modern & Spanish. The tiles are porcelain but in a texture that mimics limestone - old world feel. We chose warm/brown/gold tones to bring some of the Spanish/Mexican tile feel. Our drawers were custom made from knotty alderwood & stained with Bombay Mahogany.
