How to Plan for Aging-in-Place Remodeling

Aging-in-Place RemodelingIt’s no great secret that aging causes loss of strength, flexibility, and mobility. Unfortunately, all of these things are vital for moving around and completing tasks within your home. Overtime, even the simplest of daily chores can become burdensome. If you or a loved one is getting older and beginning to struggle to move around the house, it may be time to consider aging-in-place remodeling. It’s never been easier to plan an aging-in-place kitchen upgrade or bathroom update. In fact, you can work with a professional contractor to design a complete aging-in-place home remodeling project. Here are a number of great options you should consider and discuss with your local contractor today.

  1. Grab Bars

Grab bars can be installed throughout your entire home as needed, but are particularly useful in bathrooms. When strategically placed, these bars can greatly enhance mobility, as well as safety. Because falling is such a risk, grab bars are a great addition to any aging-in-place remodeling plans.

  1. Anti-Slip Flooring

Similarly, anti-slip flooring is also a viable option if falls are a concern. Bathroom and kitchen floors can be slick, especially when wet, and even a small tumble can be cause for great concern. Talk to your contractor about anti-slip flooring options.

  1. Accessible Cabinets

Another difficulty among elderly homeowners is an inability to reach as high as they once could. Again, this is seen most often in kitchens and bathrooms, but may be relevant for other parts of the home as well. Accessible cabinets can be constructed in many different ways, but some designs include pull-down shelving.

  1. Walk-In Tub

Walk-in tubs are another great option for aging-in-place remodeling. These are ideal for individuals who have difficulty stepping over high bathtub sidings. They are particularly functional when combined with grab bars.
