Design Your Dream Home for Life: Remodel Your Home for Safety and Independence

If you have spent many years in your own home, it can be hard to imagine leaving it for an assisted living community. That’s why many homeowners are future-proofing their homes by specifically renovating to support successful in-home aging to stay in their homes for as long as possible.

 These standard design practices, also known as Universal Design, encompass improvements in usability, accessibility, and safety features, promoting greater independence and comfort. This design principle enables functionality for everyone, regardless of age or ability. 

Common aging-in-place and Universal Design remodeling projects include:

  • Renovating for first-floor living
  • Creating an open-concept floor plan
  • Installing ramps for wheelchair or walker access
  • Widening doors, hallways, walkways, and space around the kitchen island 
  • Removing door jams for smooth transitions from room to room
  • Installing cooktops with a front-mounted control panel for easier access
  • Pull-out drawers in cabinets
  • Rounded corners on countertops for safety
  • Cabinet pulls instead of knobs for easier grip
  • Custom-height toilets
  • Installing a shower seat
  • Slip-resistant flooring
  • Installing motion-sensing lighting
