Kitchen remodels are a great way to enhance the aesthetics of this space. An essential aspect that’s not considered until it’s too late in most cases, is the issue of senior citizen accommodation. You can achieve effective aesthetics as long as you count on the particular needs of the age group concerned:
Some solutions for seniors’ needs include:
Ease of Access
The first attribute to be considered is how easily the person concerned can access and exit a residence. Many of us tend to take many things for granted, including seemingly insignificant hurdles like a couple of steps. Converting these areas into ramps can be accomplished with a few slabs of wood or concrete.
Lower Storage Space
Switching from mounted cabinets to floor cupboards and lower-mounted shelving can ensure that age doesn’t present a problem when reaching for items across the room. Reaching for items below chest level is generally easier when compared to stretching for items above your head. Less physical exertion is needed with the former.
Apart from adding ramps, you can also add strips of supportive railing on these areas. You can also add these fixtures along sharp edges with small drops like stylistic edges. If you’re looking for reliable remodeling services, call us today! Exponential Construction, your preferred contractor!
