Season 11, Episode 3

Life Changing and Accessible

A tiny bathroom didn't meet the needs of a teenager who uses a wheelchair. He was unable to shower on his own and couldn't turn around once in the room. The Bath Crashers team solved the problem by blowing out some walls to transform the room into a bigger, accessible and beautiful space. A long vanity with concrete sink allows unimpeded roll-up and ease of use. An in-wall TV highlights the expanded toilet area that features grab bars with built-in nightlights. The enlarged space features plenty of wall-to-wall storage on the way to the shower. A touch of a button slides the shower door open for access to the wet room, where a large adjustable shower-head and body sprays are controlled with an anti-scald valve. The entire space is designed with ease of maneuvering a wheelchair, including an automatic sliding pocket door for entry.
