3 Key Focus Areas for Mobility Remodeling

Mobility remodeling is one of the best ways to ensure independent living for individuals with disabilities. Choosing the right home modifications can empower homeowners of any age or ability to continue living at home safely and comfortably. If you are planning to take on this project, make sure you know which areas of the home to focus on during the project. We discuss three of them below:

1. Bathroom

It might have a smaller floor area than the other rooms in your home, but it can pose slip and fall hazards for a family member with a disability. Thus, it should be a central focus for your mobility remodeling plans. A variety of modifications can be considered here, including a walk-in shower, a set of grab bars, lowered sinks and wider doorways and floor space. These can benefit individuals who use mobility devices like walkers and wheelchairs.

2. Kitchen

Another area of the home that can be updated to benefit individuals with mobility issues is the kitchen. This is to ensure that all appliances and surfaces can be used even when the person is in a wheelchair. Installing faucets with touch sensors help those with limited use of hands or arms. Lowered countertops and cabinets, which are customizable for the user, make finding and using cookware simple.

3. Entrances and Stairways

Modifying these areas heightens the home’s accessibility for people who use wheelchairs or walkers. Adding a custom-built ramp by the entry door allows you or your loved one a greater degree of independence. Depending on the project, you may also incorporate a chair lift or elevator, especially if you have a two-story home.

Handyman Connection® of Grapevine offers remodeling services to help people of any age or ability to live safely, independently and comfortably.
