Bathroom remodel, Anne Arundel County MD

Hello everybody,
Looking for a contractor to potentially redo a bathroom at my father's place near Annapolis, MD. The house is mid 70's era and I believe the bathroom is the original. It's a tiny master bath with a 3'x4' shower, toilet, and a narrow vanity. Needs a curbless shower, might want a fold down seat and probably some grab bars. He's approaching 80 and has a variety of ailments. Would appreciate chatting with any local pros or anyone who might have references. Thanks,

jeff

Hi, Jeff. While I’m not in the area, I thought I’d give you a bit of food for thought while you’re waiting: curb-less showers and small baths don’t generally go together unless you’ve got at least a shower door to contain the shower spray. And I’m kind of assuming that a shower door may be “in the way”. You may want to consider having the entire room be one single waterproof shower pan with a wall-hanging vanity and toilet.

Don’t know your size or configuration....just looking to get the wheels turning.

Thanks Tonto. Here's the layout of the room, which I don't think we'd plan on changing. The room, not including the shower, is 54" deep and 61" wide. The door is more or less centered on the 61" wide wall, and as you walk in the toilet is in the back-left corner, the vanity is ahead, and the shower is a 3'x4' alcove to the right.

I had figured on a door for containment. Perhaps something like a Dreamline Elegance which has a fixed pane plus a swinging door. That one has a flexible strip along the bottom rather than a threshold piece.

Hi Jeff. I would suggest a low curb, 3 inches high or so. Otherwise you've got a mess, door or no door. With the door sweeping the floor you can't have a mat or rug outside the shower.
