A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words
You know the saying … a picture is worth a thousand words. This is especially true when trying to visualize how a home could be designed to work well for most everyone regardless of age, size or physical ability. This concept is known as universal design.
In this picture gallery, we created 12 different scenes to show universal design benefits that can make your home easier to use, more comfortable and potentially safer for you and your family. For each scene, we first show an area with traditional design features, followed by the same area with universal design.
Take a look through the pictures below and make notes for discussion with your contractor. Ask how some of these ideas can be folded into the repairs being made to your home.
