Preparing for the Future with Universal Design
We pride ourselves in working with customers who may not have a clear idea on what they would want in their bathroom, or those that have some idea and really have no idea how to get there. Typically our role is to help them find their vision. Rohini DeSilva is a retired attorney who also has formal interior design experience. It was fun working with her because she had a clear vision of what she wanted, and all we had to do was fill in the blanks. Our focus turned to melding budget and design; our job became finding products we were familiar with so we could guarantee everything, advise her with regards to budget and design a bathroom beautiful and functional.
Like many of our clients, Rohini and her husband Michael wanted to be sure to consider what their future needs may be. While a walk-in tub is not a necessity for them now, they wanted to create a bathroom that was flexible in the event that someone ultimately wouldn’t be able to climb over the side of a tub. We were determined to find the right solution at the right price, and ended up with a terrific American Standard Safety tub. The challenge then became creating a really pretty bathroom, with a tub that might tend to look institutional. We overcame this by focusing on other design elements like the countertops and cabinetry, that would make the bathroom modern and pretty. Ultimately, it all came together beautifully.
Thank you to Rohini & Michael for working with us. It was a pleasure to meet you and we hope that you enjoy your new bathroom for many years to come!
