Home Remodeling / October 11, 2019
There’s a lot to consider as you get older. If you’re like most Americans, you’re probably wanting to stay in your home for as long as possible. This is what we call “aging in place.” For a lot of people, aging in place means making updates to their home.
A good remodeling services company will help you figure out what changes you can make to your home to make aging in place easier. Generally, though, there are a few remodels you might want to consider sooner than later.
1. Nonslip flooring
Falls get more serious as you age. That’s why installing nonslip flooring in high-risk areas like bathrooms and kitchens can be a literal lifesaver. Nonslip flooring comes in a few different options, which you could talk out with any craftsman at Handyman Connection.
You never know what the future may hold. Even if you don’t anticipate being in a wheelchair, installing a ramp wherever there’s a few steep-steps might save you aches and pains later on. It will eliminate the risk of a fall, and ensure you’re taking every possible measure to stay in your home as long as possible.
3. Hand railings
Possibly the easiest remodel to do is installing railings on any stairway in your home. Even a few steps could use the added security of a handrail. While it might be the easiest to add on, it comes with the most risk. That’s why it’s important to call a professional remodeling services company to do any and all railing installations.
4. Walk-in Showers and Tubs
Showers and bathtubs are slippery places that can become intimidating as you age. Upgrading your shower or tub to a walk-in with nonslip flooring might seem like a step for later, but you’ll probably save money and headaches by installing it early on.
Ultimately, aging in place is different for anyone. Talking out options with a remodeling services company like Handyman Connection will help you prepare and do everything you can to make sure you or your loved ones can age in place in the comfort of their own home.
