The bathroom is the most crucial room in a home that you’ll need to remodel for disability accessibility.
There’s so much that needs doing beyond the regular bathroom remodeling. You’ll need to do at least all of these:
- Install grabs bars in slip and fall-prone areas
- Go with a curb-free shower to eliminate the barrier
- Install a hand shower and a bench for convenient access
- Lowering sinks and cabinets
- Adding non-slip flooring
- Widening the entryway
- Installing wheelchair shower
- To the higher-end installing walk-in tubs
- And simply changing almost the entire layout design of your bathroom
Just like we mentioned that it is a different level of bathroom remodeling; it also comes at a different price tag.
For the traditional remodeling, you may spend an average of $ 8,000 for a 100sqft bathroom. Remodeling for disability may require an additional $ 2,000.
However, it all depends on the ADA definitions we’ve mentioned above. The price might go higher if you incorporate most of the ADA definitions and if you’re going for a high-end look.
You also get to budget for the services of designing the new bathroom and the plumbing work needed. That is why the costs tend to be higher than the regular remodeling.
Getting the job done
For sure, remodeling for accessibility requires a lot, but don’t be spooked. No matter the size or outlook of your bathroom, the job can be done efficiently by a competent contractor.
You just need to look in the right places.
