Sculpted ADA Bathroom Faucet/Grab bar Fixture Suite

Universal/accessible design of the home from an occupational therapy and a construction perspective. This blog is part of a quest for cool, convenient, functional design that makes life safer, easier, and as maintenance-free as possible. It's about the lifestyle.

Fluid design lines make the Forté faucet a versatile addition to your kitchen decor. A high-arch, pullout spout offers convenience for washing bulky items, while a single lever handle allows you to turn on the water and find your ideal temperature in one move. The included escutcheon covers the base of the faucet for a complete, refined look.

This Kohler Forte collection comes in:
  • Polished chrome.
  • Brushed chrome.
  • Vibrant brushed nickel.
  • Vibrant stainless.
  • Vibrant brushed bronze. 

I usually recommend one-handled bathroom faucets over two-handled bathroom faucets.  It’s typically easier for people to adjust the temperature with one hand. 

One-handled faucets are highly recommended for people with cognitive impairments.  People with cognitive impairments typically turn on and turn off one faucet and not the other, this causes two problems:
·      If it’s the hot water they turn on then the chances for scalding increases significantly.
·      Only one handle gets turned off the hot or the cold, leaving either the hot or the cold water.

Toilet paper grab bar combination-one of my favorites.  Love this design.

Why install a towel bar that can be ripped off the wall?  Instead of towel bars install grab bars attached to the studs.  If someone is going to fall give them something to grab that will give them a chance of reducing injury.

Never install knobs on cabinetry they are too difficult to grab for someone with arthritis or fine motor issues, even a broken finger makes grabbing knobs difficult.  ALWAYS go for the pulls.

 I recommend a fixed head and a handheld shower for luxury, style, and of course function.
