Inhabiting a home that works efficiently and effectively is an important part of living life to the fullest. For people with physical handicaps, disabilities, seniors, or the elderly, however, there can be challenges that make it hard to get around the house and complete everyday household tasks like cooking, grooming, and housekeeping. A popular remodeling trend is to retrofit a home to accommodate these challenges in order to live independently rather than moving into an institution like a nursing home or assisted living facility.
Accessible remodeling is the combination of home modifications and renovation that can help people who have physical, mental, or other types of specific needs. This is also referred to as disability remodeling, aging-in-place remodeling, special needs accommodation. barrier-free remodeling, or handicap remodeling.
This kind of remodeling is similar to standard remodeling, but does require a bit more planning and customization, so it’s important to carefully consider what’s most important for your particular accessibility needs before knocking down any walls.
