Aging-in-Place Design Considerations

Before we begin modifying your home, we’ll help you assess your current physical condition and anticipate the changes that may arise in the coming years. Whether you’re getting older or have a progressive health condition, our team can work with you. Our designs address everything from mobility issues to arthritis to declining cognitive abilities.

Not every home remodeler in Seattle understands the significance of an aging-in-place renovation. That’s why you should work with Better Builders. We strive to make your home:

  • Functional for everyone, regardless of age or ability
  • Adaptable for future use
  • Comfortable, convenient, and safe

Home Remodeling for Accessibility and Safety

If you love where you live, you may be reluctant to move, even as your needs change. Here are the most common aging- and health-related reasons to modify your home:

  • Your mobility is gradually declining as you age.
  • A chronic health condition is getting worse.
  • A traumatic event has caused a sudden, life-altering injury.
  • Your parents, in-laws, or other older people are moving in with you.
  • You want to modernize your home to improve aesthetics and ease of use.

If any of these conditions affect you or a loved one, contact us to begin planning your aging-in-place renovation.

Mobility Devices and Design

The primary focus of aging-in-place design is to improve independence for those with limited mobility. This does not mean your house needs to feel like a nursing home. On the contrary, our award-winning designs are as beautiful as they are functional.

Consider some of the most common modifications we implement:

  • Bathtub-to-shower conversions
  • Slip-resistant flooring in bathtubs and showers
  • Bathroom handrails and grab bars
  • Lower kitchen and bathroom countertops
  • Motorized cabinets
  • Rounded corners on walls and counters
  • Wider halls and doorways
  • Wheelchair ramps
  • Lever handles in place of traditional doorknobs
  • Motion-sensor lighting

Main Floor Living

If you live in a multi-story home, stairs may prove difficult. The best option is to relocate the master suite, laundry room, and other critical areas of your home to the ground floor. If that’s not possible, you may choose to install a chair lift or elevator to improve mobility.

Even if you live in a one-story home, that doesn’t necessarily mean the rooms are designed appropriately or have everything you need. That’s why it’s beneficial to speak with our team about your long-term goals. We couple our aging-in-place expertise with contemporary products and materials to create a living space you’ll love.
