Universally Designed Kitchen & Bath
Our Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) can assist you in remodeling your home using universal design concepts related to aging-in-place. Our client chose to renovate their home that would permit them to age gracefully yet still have room to entertain their family for years to come. Some features contributing to the Aging in Place concept are wider doorways, improved lighting, space to permit maneuverability, lower countertops, accessible cabinetry, and removing all tripping hazards, such as steps.
The sunken living room was raised and turned into the formal dining room. Should the need arrive, this room can be turned into the primary bedroom. The double pocket doors make the doorway large enough for any sized mobility device or even a hospital bed. The kitchen was made larger to be able to host large family functions and provide accessibility. The two-piece powder room was turned into a larger three-piece bathroom with grab bars ready when the time comes.
With the completed renovation, aging parents could be moved in tomorrow with little impact on the family life; or they can enjoy living in the home as it is now for years to come.
