Trading a Tub for a Walk-In Shower

Our clients hadn’t used the tub feature in their ensuite bathroom for years so we suggested replacing it  with a walk-in shower that would provide easier accessibility. Installing decorative grab bars offered peace of mind for this retired couple as they plan to age in place in their well-loved home. They also opted for a freestanding bench which gives them more floor space and greater flexibility than a built-in bench would have. In keeping with the traditional style of their antique-filled colonial, we selected complementary finishes including a pecan stained cherry vanity, marble mosaic accent tile and a natural stone inspired porcelain tile. To brighten up the rest of the home, we refaced the fireplace, refinished hardwood floors, replaced carpeting, removed old window treatments, revamped closets and provided a fresh coat of paint on walls, ceilings and trim throughout.
