Remodeling with retirement in mind is a great choice for many homeowners. Over 80% of these homeowners rely on professional help to choose and provide these upgrades, and with good reason! Check out how a full-service remodeling company can help provide the redesign, project management, and expertise to help you look ahead and determine the most beneficial improvements to make.
Newer appliances and even better windows can equal big time energy efficiency. Ready for more natural light and reduced energy usage? Then consider bigger window options! Is the dishwasher on its last leg? Sounds like it’s time for appliance upgrades that cater to convenience and reduced monthly utility costs. New lighting controls and fixtures provide a broader range of dim to bright lighting, perfect for reducing glare for personal comfort or creating the right mood for entertaining guests.
Upgrade with Aging in Mind
With the help of an experienced team, home improvements can transform appearance and functionality. When you mix increasing the overall look and value of your home, with safer, convenient features and design, you get the best of both worlds! Wider doorways, modifying step entry at home entrances, rooms and even bathtubs and showers are great ways to anticipate your future needs as you upgrade. Having expert help ensures your remodel includes the little things, the features you may not be thinking of right now, like lower light switches, or plates installed so limited mobility grab bars can be added later. As you upgrade the look and features of your house, your design team will point out great changes like easy to use faucets and doorknobs that are gentler on hands. Appliances and design that accommodate you and your family as you age and enjoy your home help prevent later surprise costs.
“Universal Design is the design and composition of an environment so that it can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability.”
Easy to see this covers so much more than a grab bar or extra stair rails!
