This Euro Style Shower conversion in Aurora, CO was a request to make the bathroom handicap accessible. After a fall in the home, the client was in a rehab center and needed to make the bathroom open and usable for a rolling shower chair. We removed the tub and installed a onyx marblecast shower bast designed to fit the size of the tub with the drain in the middle. This allows the shower to be the lowest spot in the room and the base is a flat as possible while still draining correctly. The corner shelf are a good way to get storage without causing a barrier or obstacle. By tiling the floor and widening the door, we integrated this shower into the bathroom and made the usable space much bigger.
This bathroom was tight with a large vanity and a small tub. The client was coming home using a wheelchair for the first time, and we were challenged with how to use the space without moving walls. This home was a condo we had a tight budget to accomplish this remodel. We installed a solid surface no step shower base with new tile shower and handheld shower head, and a new tile floor, as well as a taller toilet, and a custom accessible vanity and sink. The countertop was a solid surface top with a built in sink that has a shallow bowl. This way, the shallow depth of the sink bowl combined with the custom vanity make the maximum knee and chair space possible.
Euro style bathrooms are great. Not only do they look stylish but they also make the bathroom accessible.
Here we preformed a Euro style bathroom remodel in our clients home to make it accessible.
Euro style bathrooms are beautiful. They allow you to have a stylish and accessible bathroom! Here we removed a walk in shower and build a barrier free shower with curved shower curtain. The glass accent tile and the fashionable tile provides a modern look to this bathroom. The difference in space around the toilet and inside this bathroom make this remodel much easier to use.
This beautiful tiled Euro Style bathroom combines beauty and accessibility. The shower offers easy access with no threshold and includes grab bars in both the toilet area and the shower for added safety
In this Curbless Handicap Shower, the bathroom and bath tub were very small and our client needed room to roll a wheelchair into the bathroom, past the sink and toilet to the shower. In a Curbless Shower, the shower needs to be the lowest spot in the bathroom. In this way the water cannot escape outside the shower. Also, because the curbless, or roll in shower, is flush with the floor of the rest of the bathroom, the shower base can be larger and closer to the toilet. Normally, a shower base cannot be closer than 8 inches to the toilet, but a curbless shower, or roll in shower can be within 4 inches of the toilet. The existing tub was 30 inches wide, but the walls of the tub took 6 inches on the front wall and 2 inches of the back wall, so there were only 22 inches of space inside the tub. This roll in shower base is 36 inches wide, which provides 14 more inches of space. Because of this space and the fact that a wheelchair can turn around on the tile bathroom floor and the shower, make this bathroom much larger and accessible for a handicap shower.
This Euro Style Shower was completed with tile, and a slip resistant flooring. For complete accessibility usually a shower curtain is used in place of a door, there are different options for enclosure. This bathroom is beautiful.
When taking care of a child or even an adult transfers can be a challenge, getting in and out of bed, as well as in and out of a bathtub or shower. We had the privilege to work with this exceptional family to make their home work for them. We replaced their bathtub with a Euro Style Shower, and added a lift system above the bed that continues into the shower area.
