RESIDENTIAL

UNIVERSAL

DESIGN

Universal Design aka Aging-in-Place remodeling is the key to bringing your dreams home not only for today, but for the future. Universal Design allows you to stay in your home for a lifetime, without having to reinvest to accommodate the evolution of life.

 

At the bare minimum here are some things our team will consider when “We Bring Your Dreams Home.”

  • No-step entry into rooms or spaces.

  • Doorway and hallway widths that allows for wheelchairs, walkers etc. to move around.

  • One level with everything you need. Eat. Bathe. Sleep.

  • Extra floor space.

  • Minimum threshold transitions from  garages, porches and  outdoor living areas

 

Universal Design addresses more than aging in your home. Why not make life easier and safer too?

  • Consider non-slip surfaces in appropriate areas.

  • Add handrails on steps and grab bars in bathrooms.

  • Avoid step-entry, avoid tripping.

  • Proper lighting for day and night.

  • Doorknobs and light switches that allow you to transition from room to room even with full hands.
