A New Perspective for Home Owners Over the Age of 55
More San Diegans are turning to remodeling their home for taking care of their elder parents. Also their current family lifestyle which can include raising children, entertaining family and friends, or working at home.
Aging in Place Home Remodeling
The concept of aging in place and universal design are hot words in the design and remodeling world. This means remodeling a home that meets special needs. As we get older most desire to stay in our home longer instead of moving into a retirement community.
Aging in place remodeling can include changes to a home which enables for easier access to and from rooms. Such as enlarging hallways and doorways, converting bathrooms to allow for use of wheel chairs, walkers, and other specialty medical equipment.
Some homeowners are now choosing to update their homes themselves with simple DIY modifications. Sometimes they hire a handyman to do it for them. Please Note: We only do major construction projects and large scale home remodeling. We are not a handyman service so we don’t do small simple tasks. Which is good for you because paying a general contractor to perform a lower price handyman service is not cost effective for you. Either way, we present some ideas here such as:
- Wall mounted sinks
- Raised or taller toilets
- Bench seats and grab bars in the showers
- Adding a hand held adjustable shower valves
- Roll out drawers that fully extend in kitchen cabinets for easier access
- Raising dishwashers
- Lowering cabinets and sink areas
- Redesigning closets
