GOLD Universal Design GOLD Bathroom More Than $75,000 Landis Construction, Washington, D.C., landisconstruction.com Project name: Condominum Bathroom Location: Washington, D.C. Square footage: 94 Cost: $250,000 The wife, who is in a wheelchair, asked that the ground-level condominium renovation be handicap-accessible while not looking institutional. Kitchen work involved closing a service door leading from the apartment hallway directly into the kitchen; the range was placed where the door had been. Space between cabinets was widened to 42 in. to provide more maneuvering space. Shallower cabinets make items easier to reach. The remodel also moved the entrance to the kitchen from the living room to the front entry hall and widened it to 36 in. Half-light doors with louvers below allow natural light and air. A flagstone ramp from the apartment to patio creates easy access to the couple's garden. Hallways throughout were widened to 42 in. with 36-in. doorways. The apart- ment's two small bathrooms were married into one large bathroom. The curb- less shower with a glass shower door that swings both directions has a handheld shower and rain head. The sloped floor keeps water in and flowing toward the drain. Jackson Design and Remodeling, San Diego, jacksondesignandremodeling.com Project name: Daring Style Master Bath Location: Carlsbad, Calif. Square footage: 142 Cost: $85,000 This master bath blends daring modern style with mid-century touches that introduce character and energy to the space. The young couple desired a luxurious and inspiring space while being safe and comfortable for their toddler. Wanting to avoid neutrals, yellow and blue saturates the space and is further enhanced with natural light. Existing beams in the ceiling were integrated to add visual interest, and Shoji-style sliding doors provide privacy while retaining light. Design features include bright lemon yellow oversized wall tiles that alternate between a glossy and matte finish and a periwinkle blue vanity. Hand-blown glass pendants illuminate that area. Other features include a freestanding tub, open shower, walk-in closet and hidden storage behind the vanity mirrors. The wood flooring in the sink area transitions to a sloped floor to accommodate the open shower.
