BUILD IT NOW… LOVE IT FOREVER
No one wants to think about getting old. We humans tend to put off preparing for what’s to come. But some simple changes to the layout and floor plans of our homes can make all the difference when challenges arise later in life. Schafer Brothers Remodeling is an Aging-in-Place specialist and well-versed in planning ahead with subtle design elements that can make staying in the home you love a reality.
Universal design concepts involve the choices you make in bathtub and flooring surfaces, thresholds between rooms, lighting choices, doorknobs, even light switches. Other simple design choices that may pay off later is in the layout of hallways and rooms. Allowing extra width in halls and doorways, and keeping floor plans open makes for friendlier living spaces, no matter what age you are. Planning for aging-in-place by relying on Universal Design concepts is standard for Schafer Brothers Remodeling.
