Are you planning to live in your Atlanta, Lawrenceville, Dunwoody, Buckhead or Marietta home for your lifetime? The following aging-in-place and universal design principles apply to making your home accessible for today, and for tomorrow, too!
The primary aging-in-place design strategies include:
- Zero-step entry with level access (no steps) from the driveway to the door at a minimum of one outside door on the main floor;
- Wide doorways and hallways with 60” turning radius at the end of the hall;
- Accessible Bathroom with grab bars and roll-in shower or walk-in bathtub;
- Lever handles on doors and faucets, and rocker panel light switches;
- Remote lock and unlocking door hardware.
Universal design principles include level access to at least one exterior door; One-story living with the dining, living room, and at least one bedroom and one bath on the main level; Wide doorways and hallways to move easily from room to room; Accessible walk-in tub or roll-in shower; Extra floor space for roominess, and wheelchair freedom; and stacked closets for future residential home elevators.
