The Winthorpe Universal Design Process

Our clients tell us all the time that they want to continue living in their home regardless of what challenges time and age bring.

Aging in place, or universal design, lets you safely and comfortably live an independent life in your existing home no matter what your age or physical abilities.

Winthorpe Design & Builds Offers Aging in Place Design and Remodeling

Nothing matches the freedom and dignity that comes from the ability to maintain your friendships and community ties while living in the home you love.

Incorporating universal design into your remodel today is a great way to accommodate your family’s present needs and plan for future ones.

The myriad of practical and attractive options in aging in place design means you can choose home improvement features that work for everyone, in any situation.

At Winthorpe Design & Build, we believe the aging in place design build model is a great approach to remodeling.

Here are just some of the design modifications you find with universal design:

  • Main floor master suites
  • Expanded hallways and doorways to accommodate wheelchairs
  • Tile laid beneath bathroom vanities for future vanity modification
  • Curbless showers with benches
  • Grab bars that double as towel racks
  • Pull-out drawers, levered faucets, and extra task lighting

Some homeowners even prepare for a future elevator. Exterior modifications may include at least one entry at ground level, slip resistant flooring both inside and outside the main entry, permanent walkway lighting, and stairway and porch handrails.
