Are you or a loved on getting older? Aging can pose all sorts of mobility issues, causing even simple, daily tasks to become difficult, if not impossible. If mobility has become a problem, it may be time to consider aging-in-place remodeling as a solution. There are many options for both bathroom renovations and kitchen updates. Don’t let age keep you from doing things in your own home. Here are several aging-in-place remodeling options you should discuss with your local contractor.
Many flooring materials are slippery, especially when wet. Even some smoother types of carpeting can be hazardous. When you’re older, the risk of falling increases, as does the potential for serious injury. This is why you should speak with your local home remodeling company about installing anti-slip flooring. This is particularly helpful in bathrooms and kitchens.
2. Grab Bars
Another great addition to any bathroom or kitchen is a grab bar. Bars can be placed strategically throughout your entire home, but are often installed in bathrooms. These bars can help maintain balance while moving into and out of the bathtub or shower.
As you age, it becomes more and more difficult to reach items stored in high places. If this is a concern, you should discuss accessibility cabinets with your contractor. Pull-down shelving is a new cabinetry design which can eliminate this issue completely.
