Universal Design Consultants Answer The Questions
What Universal Design Means
Universal Design combines accessible and adaptable design elements to create spaces that meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities.
How Universal Design Can Work For You
If you love where you live, chances are that you don’t wish to move. Perhaps, though, the very home that once empowered you to live independently may suddenly seem restrictive. Features you once loved—full flights of stairs, sunken living rooms, standard size bathrooms, high kitchen cabinets—may now give you cause for concern. Are your plumbing fixtures difficult to maneuver? Do you feel unsafe in your bathroom? Is your lighting inadequate? By taking the universal design approach, we can help you address these and other barriers to your comfort and independence. You’ll be amazed at how simple yet innovative changes can make all the difference.
We’ll work with you to identify any obstacles that may prevent you from living in your home indefinitely. And thanks to forward-thinking design trends, it’s easy to avoid institutional-looking products that we often associated with aging or disabilities, such as handicap accessible bathrooms or the combination walk-in tub/ shower. Through creative hardscaping and lawn grading, for example, we can design cleverly-hidden wheelchair ramps for home use. You can count on us to know all the best places to procure or create aesthetically pleasing aging-in-place products.
