ReDesign for a Special Need

A recently purchased home didn’t provide access to any of the master bathroom fixtures for the owner, a full-time wheelchair user. The project started by augmenting the hall bathroom so the new owner could move into the house while the master bathroom was being redesigned and remodeled.

McCabe By Design LLC  oversaw all aspects of the project and Molly McCabe was the designer. McCabe collaborated with the homeowners to find and select just the right products with the requisite aesthetic and functional qualities.

The master bath water closet walls needed to be permanently removed to provide full access to the toilet and grab bars. The bathtub and curbed tiny shower were removed in favor of a spacious, roll-in shower with a transfer pole, grab bar shampoo shelves, hand-held shower head, and thermostatic valves. An awkward “linen” closet was removed to make room for accessible pull-out storage and two nearly identical vanities (at the homeowner’s request), with one vanity being a roll-up. Lighted LED mirrors provide full illumination for grooming.
