Remodeling with universal design in mind

Posted 9 April 2013 by Team Hudson

Think universal design is just for elderly and disabled people?  Think again.

Sure universal design is great for senior citizens and it’s necessary for people that use mobility aids, but it can also be beneficial for children and folks that are recovering from injury or illness.

The benefits of remodeling with universal design in mind are many.  Whether homeowners are updating a master bathroom, renovating a kitchen or just upgrading fixtures, there are choices that can be made now that will make life easier down the road.

When it comes to making a home work for any age or stage, it’s a good idea to take a proactive approach.  Consider adding a ground floor master suite, incorporating walk-in shower units, installing grab bars, widening doorways, having a variety of counter heights in the kitchen, and even making sure there is at least one step-free entrance to the home.

Hudson Remodeling would love to help people of all ages incorporate universal design elements into their Whatcom or Skagit County homes.  As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Charlie Hudson is a great resource for those wanting to make a change.

Looking for a bit of inspiration?  We have found Pinterest to be a great resource for universal design ideas.  Take a look at these images and consider incorporating some into your next home remodel project.  http://pinterest.com/search/?q=universal%20design%20homes
