Aging in Place Remodel Feature - The Woodlands

This aging in place remodel started by removing the existing soaker tub and framed glass enclosed shower. These elements were replaced with a modern curbless shower, precisely installed at the former soaker tub location. Additionally, we framed a bench within the shower area to enhance comfort and functionality. To ensure safety and accessibility, we strategically installed two shower grab bars. The shower was further upgraded with frameless glass, offering a sleek and contemporary aesthetic. Finally, a linear shower drain was expertly installed to optimize water drainage and create a seamless finish.
