Is someone in your home getting older? Aging can cause a number of mobility issues, making daily life at home much more difficult. Declining strength and flexibility can also result in unexpected injuries due to falling. Luckily, there are a number of bathroom updates and kitchen upgrades that may alleviate this risk. Aging-in-place remodeling is becoming much more common since it’s a cheaper alternative to other assisted living options. To help you determine if aging-in-place remodeling is right for you, your family, and your home, here are several possible features to consider before calling your local remodeling company.
Bathroom Grab Bars
If the risk of falling is a concern, adding grab bars to your bathroom may be an ideal solution. Many homeowners feel that this aging-in-place remodeling feature addresses mobility issues in one of the most commonly used spaces.
Kitchen and Bathroom Anti-Slip Flooring
Another way to avoid undo injury from falling is to add anti-slip flooring to your kitchen and bathroom. Since these areas are prone to wetness, incorporating this aging-in-place feature can do a lot to put your mind at ease.
When flexibility is an issue, reaching items on high shelves can be problematic. Talk to your remodeling contractor about pull-down shelving or cabinetry installed at lower heights.
