Bathrooms are some of my favorite projects to work on. When it comes to this classic bathroom remodel, there’s something truly special about the transformation of the space that was previously ADA accessible into a luxurious oasis. This home was at one point an assisted living facility that was required to have an ADA accessible bathroom for their tenants. Because this is a single family home again, the bathroom had a lot of wasted space for this growing family.
I first met these clients at a home show in Bloomington, MN in February of 2020. You know the next line: and then the world shut down. Through the last 3 years, these clients were diligent and patient in order to create the bathroom of their dreams! We worked together to create a plan that worked for their family and the space. Utilizing the open floor space available, a soaking tub with a floor-mounted tub filler was added to the design. The soaking tub is the centerpiece of this luxurious bathroom. Sitting on beautiful slate-like porcelain floor tiles, this tub is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The floor-mounted tub filler adds to the modern, luxurious feel of the space.
The single vanity with ample storage and counterspace is a perfect addition to this bathroom. The original vanity was an awkward shape and size for the accessibility function. By using a smaller door to the bathroom, the vanity was able to expand from three and a half feet to five feet. The marble countertops and shower surround provide a beautiful and timeless look, while the oil rubbed bronze fixtures add an extra touch of elegance. With enough storage for all of your bathroom essentials, this vanity is both practical and stylish.
Moving on to the shower, the oversized walk-in shower with a hinged glass door is sure to impress. Custom shampoo niche storage ensures that all of your shower essentials are within reach, while the standard shower head and rain head provide a luxurious shower experience. An added window in the shower allows for increased natural light, creating a bright and airy feel. And with a custom shower drain, every detail of this shower has been carefully considered.
Finally, Benjamin Moore’s Aegean Teal is the perfect accent color for this luxurious bathroom. It complements the other finishes beautifully and adds a pop of color to the space without overwhelming it.
Even though this process took 3 years to complete, this Minneapolis Classic Bathroom Remodel truly showcases the beauty of transforming an ADA accessible bathroom into a luxurious oasis. From the soaking tub to the custom shower drain and everything in between, every detail of this space has been carefully considered to create a functional and stylish bathroom that is sure to make these clients happy to use it everyday!
