Aging In Place – Handicap Accessibility Adaptations

More people than ever before are considering “aging in place” options for their home, and why not! Most of us want to live in our own homes for as long as possible, as comfortably as possible.

By making simple handicap accessible adaptations, life can become easier and safer. These adaptations don’t have to be clunky or ugly – we pride ourselves on coming up with beautiful, elegant solutions.

We can offer aging in place solutions throughout the home, from lighting to flooring, special cabinetry to furniture placement.

Some of the most common aging in place interior design solutions for kitchen remodels include:

  • better lighting (including task lighting)
  • side by side refrigerators / freezers
  • appliances with easy-to-read controls
  • sinks that are lower and/or more shallow
  • cabinet and drawer handles that are easy to grip
  • cabinets with roll out trays and lazy susans
  • wider doorways (to accommodate wheelchairs)
  • microwaves at or below the height of the counter
  • pull-out pantries
  • clearance space of at least 36 inches throughout the kitchen (to accommodate wheelchairs)

Some of the most common aging in place interior design solutions for bathroom remodels include:

  • wheelchair accessible showers
  • grip bars in showers and next to toilets
  • handicap accessible toilets
  • counters with no cabinets below them (so wheelchairs can fit below them)
  • walk-in bathtubs
  • seats in showers
  • wider doorways (to accommodate wheelchairs)
  • spray faucets in showers
  • better lighting

As Certified Aging In Place Specialists, we can offer interior design consultation, or we can coordinate the entire remodeling project for you.

Perhaps you want to buy a new home and make sure that it will serve you well as you age, or maybe you have more immediate needs in the home you’re in now. Whatever your circumstances, we’d love to talk to you about the possibilities for adding innovative aging in place features.
