Fundamentals of Home Remodeling Accessibility



Most homeowners use home remodeling projects to improve their home’s resale value, curb appeal and appearance. However, it’s also important to know that a remodel can enhance accessibility. In this post, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville shares important details below.

Remodeling Checklist for Home Accessibility

  • Faucets featuring extended handles. Faucets can become more difficult to handle as you age. Fortunately, modern faucet options are widely available in accessible formats with ergonomic handles. You can elevate your faucet’s accessibility by purchasing sensor-enabled faucets for family members with limited mobility or dexterity.
  • Wide hallways. When you have a home or mobility remodeling project lined up, make sure that your home’s hallways are wide enough to navigate through, especially for those who use wheelchairs and walkers.
  • Round-edged countertops. A seasoned mobility remodeling contractor would suggest installing round-edged countertops to minimize the risk of injury. This is a very important investment to consider, especially if you’re focusing on mobility and accessibility. 
  • Grab bars in showers & tubs. Remember that the bathroom is the space where accidents are more likely. To reduce the chances of accidents occurring, invest in grab bars for your shower space and tubs. You can increase your bathroom’s safety even further by installing non-slip flooring and mats.
