Fully accessible: Montlake vanity by Strasser Woodenworks

Strasser Woodenworks partnered with Schloegal Design & Remodeling to develop a brand new bathroom for a child with dwarfism.

Strasser Woodenworks has partnered with Schloegal Design & Remodeling to develop a new kind of bathroom for a special guest. Amy Boeshaar customized Strasser Woodenworks’ Shaker style Montlake vanity to allow a child with dwarfism full access to the sink.

To recreate the vanity, Boeshaar started with cabinet elements from Strasser Woodenworks’ Montlake collection. She and her team used these elements as the “bones” to create a bathroom vanity that’s fully accessible for those with dwarfism, yet still usable by other members of the family.

The remodeled vanity has a “step-out” design to make the vanity top and sink accessible. According to Boeshaar, they selected different length drawer glides to make the stairs work. They also removed the bottom rail of the drawer and built each step inside to be sure they fit when folded up and closed. Casters were used under the steps to help them roll out with ease. When the stairs are not in use, they appear just like a regular toe-kick. Boeshaar also selected a Shaker door style in satin white.
