Home Design: A bathroom fit for a king. Or a queen, or a prince, or anyone else.
With the touch of a button, a motorist can adjust a car's seat, mirrors, and stereo system; so why can't we adjust our bathrooms as easily? Architects at the University at Buffalo have already built two prototypes that can be personalized to fit our needs.
Both bathrooms have sinks, toilets, and showers that move up and down for people of different heights, as well as sinks and showers that move sideways to make space. In one prototype, the bathroom's components are on interchangeable panels, with multiple plumbing hookups built into the walls.
