  • Open floor plan
  • Kitchen island countertop

Accessibility Accommodations

For many, aging-in-place home additions or housing aging family is not only a vague goal, but a necessity. 

Aging-in-place remodeling is aimed at helping homeowners live happily and independently at home as they get older. This type of addition is focused on accessibility and typically involves:

  • Adding a master suite to the ground level of the home
  • Widening doorways
  • Adding bathrooms with zero-transition showers
  • Leveling showers and removing tub walls
  • Decreasing steepness of steps
  • Adding handrails where needed
  • There’s also a growing trend of adults adding in-law suites to their home for their aging parents. These suites may be attached or detached from the home and are meant to provide a safe space for older relatives to stay — whether they’re moving in permanently or just visiting.
