Aging in place can be beautiful – I liked the detail of the tall piece of granite making the wall off-balanced. We used a tiny ¼ ‘bump’ of a rounded piece of granite between the ‘bath’ area and the ‘room’ area, and used the same tile in a 3×3 and 2×2 with high coefficient of friction. Faucet on side of sink, when pulling up in a wheel chair, more accessible. There is also an 18”wX18” deep linen closet with rollouts & drawers next to the sink.
