4 Essential Home Improvements to Help You Age-in-Place
Aging-in-place renovation, the process of remodeling your home into a place where you can safely and securely live for the rest of your life, is usually regarded as something that can be put off until late in life. No one wants to think about growing old, but there is a better way to look at these kinds of modifications. They are an opportunity to make your home so beautiful, comfortable and suited to your lifestyle that you never want to leave!
Smart Age-in-Place Improvements
Here are suggestions that will offer excellent returns on investment as well as provide benefits as you age. They may be done gradually over the course of a few years, or all at once as part of new construction or renovation.
- Updated fixtures. Vision starts to decline around age 40, which means older eyes need more light. To prevent falls and help with distinguishing fine details, add light to the kitchen, bath, indoor stairwells and outdoor stairways. Easy-to-use lighting controls allow you to adjust the amount of light needed at different times of the day.
- Lever-style door handles. More than 50% of all adults have some form of arthritis, which can make opening doors frustrating and painful. Lever handles are operated by pushing down, rather than grasping and twisting, so they are much easier to use.
- A spa-like bathroom. Aging-in-place features don’t have to stand out when you have expert designers to help. A lipless shower entry, a chair-height toilet, a sink with knee space underneath and well-located storage can eliminate barriers to walking and wheelchairs while delivering fresh, inviting designs.
- Open floor plan. An open floor plan is not only more modern, it maximizes light and facilitates maneuvering. This is particularly important in the kitchen. With convenient counter heights and work stations that accommodate wheelchair use and easy movement, your kitchen will always be welcoming and accessible.
