4 Home Renovations You Can Have Done During Your Retirement

Retirement will leave you with a lot of time on your hands, and, during your free time, you may notice that your home is long overdue for an upgrade. Not only because the home is starting to show its age, but also because you have plans to age in place. However, since there are many home renovation options out there, you may have a hard time choosing which one.

In this post, Handyman Connection® of Grapevine discusses the four home renovations you can do during your retirement.

  1. Easier Entrance – One of the home renovations you’ll want during your retirement and as you age is a wider entrance. As you get older, you’ll want an easier time getting in and out so consider adding several inches to the doorway. That way, you’ll have an easier time getting around in a wheelchair or a walker someday. You can also think about having a ramp added so you won’t have to use the stairs when you grow older.
  1. First Floor Bedroom – As you age, climbing up and down the staircase can be exhausting, and it can even be a tripping hazard if you have a disability. If your bedroom is located on the second floor, it may be time to consider a first floor bedroom. With that in mind, enlist the help of professionals to turn one of the rooms on the first floor into a bedroom or have a bedroom built on the home’s main floor.
  1. Bathroom Modifications – Since the bathroom tends to get wet, the entire room can be a slipping hazard for you as you grow older. Therefore, installing grab bars and rails can help you create an age-friendly space in your bathroom. Removing the threshold of your shower area or adding a higher toilet are other age-friendly bathroom modifications that you should consider.
  1. A Hobby Room – As stated before, retirement can leave you with a lot of free time on your hands. To avoid being bored, it’s likely you’ll want some place to be productive. Having a hobby room built or repurposing an unused room into a home office are good things to consider if you’re thinking of suitable home renovations for your retirement.
