Accessibility Remodeling: Making Your Kitchen and Bathroom More Accessible


Accessibility Remodeling: Making Your Kitchen and Bathroom More Accessible

As homeowners age or experience changes in their mobility, they may want to consider remodeling their kitchen or bathroom to make it more accessible. An accessible kitchen or bathroom can make daily tasks easier and safer and can help homeowners maintain their independence. In this blog, we'll explore some of the accessibility options available for kitchen and bathroom remodeling.

Lever handles

Lever handles on faucets and doors are easier to use than traditional knobs, especially for those with limited hand mobility.

Walk-in showers

Walk-in showers with low or no thresholds provide easier access than traditional showers with high steps or ledges.

Grab bars

Grab bars in showers and around toilets can provide stability and support for those with mobility issues.

Roll-under sinks

Roll-under sinks provide wheelchair users with better access to the sink area.

Pull-out shelves

Pull-out shelves in cabinets and pantries can make it easier to reach items without having to bend down or reach up.

Adjustable-height counters

Adjustable-height counters can be raised or lowered to accommodate different users, making it easier to cook or work at the counter.

Non-slip flooring: non-slip flooring can help prevent falls in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.

By incorporating these accessibility features into your kitchen or bathroom remodel, you can create a safer and more functional space that can accommodate your needs now and in the future. Be sure to work with a contractor or designer who has experience with accessibility remodeling to ensure that your space is both functional and stylish
