It’s been a long time since we last posted. Mainly we have been moving into the new and remodeled parts of the house and have just been too exhausted to update this blog!
Our new bathroom is a joy. As a reminder, we gutted the original master bath and enlarged it to include a new accessible shower.
Speaking of the shower, here it is!
The tile expert from our builder constructed the built-in seat (inside the shower) with a slight downward pitch so that it sheds water toward the drain. Outside the shower, the teak transfer seat is a great place to sit while drying off after showering. It folds up against the wall if necessary, but so far we have left it in the “down” position.
The shower controls are easily reached from the seat. The small upper control is a diverter that sends the flow of water to either the handheld shower head or to the main shower head on the left (not pictured). The sturdy grab bar doubles as a handy holder for wash clothes.
Looking back into the main part of the master bath, we have a nice new tub that we probably won’t use very often. It’s gorgeous, but we both prefer showering.
The master bath has a double vanity with a “tower” in the middle to store toiletries.
The toilet features a curvy grab bar and a storage cubby — a good place to stash reading material.
