You and your home may share a long story spanning many decades. You may have raised your children here and still store things they had growing up. In truth, it's probably time to see your living space through a fresh lens and to make sure your current - and future - needs are your top priority.
So, why redesign?
My house is too full!
Over time many of us find our homes are "too full," which limits the ways we can live. Its best to have rooms redesigned to meet our changing needs. This can be achieved editing unneeded furniture and by moving things from room to room to increase function.
I am considering first-floor living.
This is an ideal objective as you consider aging-in-place. It's also a win-win if it enables friends with mobility issues to visit you. Elevators and stair glides can also be a solution, if bathing & sleeping spaces on the second floor are still needed.
My house feels too dark!
Proper lighting is an important aspect of good space planning. A 60 year old needs 3x the light as a 20-year old! As we evaluate living spaces, proper pathway illumination and task lighting are always considered.
I would love to move, but I can't. Can we make my house feel like a new space?
Yes! Many people who choose to age-in-place want the familiarity of their home with the safety and accessibility of a senior community. So, if you're ready for a new home feel, we can suggest simple adjustments (or major modifications!) to give you both fresh design and unrestricted mobility.
A fresh coat of paint, new furniture arrangement, and updated window coverings can go a long way!
