Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Remodel (with Industrial Decor)


We recently had our son's bathroom remodeled from your typical small full bath to a accessible bathroom with a roll in shower. The main difference between this and a shower stall is that there is no lip between the shower and the main floor and the shower area is much larger.

This was not a DIY project. It included shaving down the floor joists in the shower area to create a slope to the drain and moving the toilet and sink over in order to give more room to the shower. So lots of hvac, plumbing, tiling and general construction work. We love the end results and it makes life so much easier.

Although the pedestal sink isn't truly accessible, it works for us and opens up the room more than a roll under sink

The shower has no lip to it, so you can just roll straight into it.  The tile has an x pattern on it to make it slip resistant

And this is the before photo of the room. Your generic tub shower combo with a whitewashed oak vanity. We ended up donating what we could to the local Habitat store.

    I like it. The only thing that's a little off are those hydrangeas. You wouldn't find them in a gas station, lol. my husband is also in a wheelchair and the pedestal sink would never work for us. we also have a roll in shower and just redid our bathroom.
