What Is Aging-in-Place?

As the name suggests, aging in place allows older generations to continue going about each day in their home and the community they know. This is for people who wish to avoid transferring to other options such as assisted living centers or home sharing.

Aging-in-place allows people to maintain a sense of independence and self-reliability so they can maintain some level of control over their lives. Alongside the emotional aspect, aging in place is often a financially sound option, as many have equity in their home and won’t have to put excess money into assisted living or another senior care option.

Remodeling Ideas for Aging in Place

Creativity is important when determining the best remodeling ideas for aging-in-place renovation projects. When you partner with DBS Remodel, you can expect a range of services that will meet both physical requirements and aesthetic desires.

Some of our aging-in-place remodeling ideas include:

Accessibility Modifications

Accessibility is a pertinent aspect of aging-in-place home modifications. Widening doors to allow for wheelchairs or other mobility equipment is crucial. Installing ramps or zero-step entries allow for easy movement in an out of the home and different rooms.

Grab bars and non-slip surfaces in bathrooms will increase safety and functionality, and lowering cabinetry and countertops should be considered for kitchens.

Bathroom Renovations

Bathrooms are likely the most-used rooms in a home. To ensure comfort, safety, and efficiency for aging people, bathroom remodeling should not be taken lightly. Some ideas to consider for bathroom renovations include:

  • Walk-in or curbless showers
  • Comfort-height toilets
  • Handheld showerheads
  • Slip-resistant flooring

Kitchen Upgrades

Everyone should be able to use their kitchens with ease. From grabbing a quick snack to planning a thoughtful dinner for loved ones, many appliances and structures in the kitchen may need to be reimagined for ease of use.

Some of our kitchen remodeling services include:

  • Pull-out shelves and lazy susans
  • Drawer microwaves and appliances
  • Task lighting
  • Non-slip flooring

Lighting & Safety Improvements

Lighting is essential for getting around easily, so implementing upgraded lighting into your aging-in-place remodel is key. Added safety measures are also a must; some lighting and safety improvements DBS Remodel offers include:

  • Motion-sensor lighting
  • Bright task lighting
  • Non-slip flooring
  • Additional handrails and grab-bars

Multi-Generational Living Spaces

Multi-generational living spaces are often a practical option for many reasons, including financial and emotional. While multi-generational living offers many perks, it’s also likely that these residents have different living requirements, so enhancing your home to meet the needs of everyone is important.

Our multi-generational living space services tackle:

  • Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) or in-law suites
  • Open floor plans for easy navigation
  • Separate entrances and living areas
