It’s funny how much our design preferences have changed in the last 25 years. When this Leawood home was built in 1994 showers were something you threw into a corner or small space. The design emphasis was often on the jetted tub. Over and over again we see this.
Schloegel Design Remodel specializes in bathrooms. In fact, that's why we created the Big Splash Custom Bath Giveaway, our annual project in which we remodel a bathroom to make it handicap accessible for a young child with special needs.
But what if you'd like accessible features, without needing a full-blown remodel? You may want to explore universal design, which emphasizes fixtures and layouts that make spaces accessible for people of all abilities.
Sure, it's where you do your most personal "business," but there's no need to be bashful about these techie toilets! With offering everything from self-cleaning to seat heating, these thrones would bring the wow factor to any bathroom.
This toilet takes care of everyone's least favorite bathroom chore all by itself.
I have a half bath I'd like to convert to a 3/4 cheaply but still have it add to the home's value. There is a toilet at the far end and a vanity cabinet and sink, all on the left wall as you enter the space. There is not enough room for a 36x36 shower base, nor for a 32" base, to fit in front of the toilet as it faces out, and the floor is tile so I'd rather not tear it up.
Gayle Jagoda had a wonderful time restoring this beautiful duplex in historical Hyde Park. She has a passion for working towards restoring older properties back to their original splendor and style—whether they are a classic 1920’s duplex or a vintage 1960’s contemporary!
These before pictures show the main bathrooms in this duplex.
This barrier-free shower floor is not just geared for individuals who have accessibility needs. It is a seamless look that allows a beautiful transition from the main bath area into the shower area. “Tuff-Form” is a preformed shower base made by AKW that provides slope to the drain and sits directly on top of the floor joists.
