In this wet room (sometimes unfortunately called a roll-in shower) tile work gives all the visual cues. The changes in pattern and color of the tile itself create not only beauty, but help people with low vision... even help keep the kids in the "shower" area while a parent can sit comfortably on the tile/stone seat and monitor.
A beautiful, simple home ramp that fits with cottage/ranch look, doesn't scream "accessible" and also handy for stollers, carts and other uses- in cold weather areas put an extended roof by the door over the decking.

Shower Rooms Integrate the design with the rest of the space. Because there's no concrete border between an open shower and its surroundings, choose materials that will create a smooth transition. The wall tile in this bath continues seamlessly into the shower, with only a change in ceiling materials to provide a visual stopping point.
Doorless Showers Open a World of Possibilities
A microwave drawer placed just beneath the countertop is one solution for shorter individuals and for those managing a wheelchair or crutches. It eliminates the sometimes dangerously high reach, and locating it underneath the counter means there is always a landing surface available for hot items as they come out. Younger children have easy access to the unit at this height, too. Controls are also easier to see and read, although taller individuals might have to bend down to read the display.
Home Free Home - Home Free Home is an all volunteer organization that relies on local volunteer architects and university students. We are currently in the process of reaching out to volunteers across the country to grant resources to families in need.
