Bathrooms that are elegant and accessible

Real Estate

The goal of so-called universal design is to create buildings, spaces and products that are accessible to people with or without disabilities, but it can be difficult to find universal design items that fit into interior design styles. People of all ages also may be reluctant to incorporate universal design elements in bathroom remodeling projects, fearing they might make the space too specific, said Laurie Crum, a designer with Summit Design Remodeling. "Universal design doesn't have to look like a public bathroom," said Crum, who advises clients on using these elements. She said fixtures come in styles that make them as attractive as anything else in the bath. She said offers fixtures in 21 finishes to match any style.
