Reworking a cramped master bath for accessibility allows everyone room to move. See how this family got the job done.

Bath remodel on the agenda? For those who like to soak in authentic, heat-retaining enameled cast iron but have only enough real estate for a shower stall, there's the Minuet, just 40 inches long.

Wall-mount faucets make it easy to clean the marble counter with a swipe. The sink cabinet has a warm, gray-washed finish for a reclaimed-wood look. Faucet: Moen
