Disabilities and physical limitations should never impede someone from enjoying the comfort of their own home. At Hammerdown Home Renovations, we put our heart and soul into bringing our valued customers home renovations that are breathtaking and beautiful. But beyond the beauty, we also strongly believe in creating accessible living renovations, which improves quality of life, too. Accessible living renovations can include a multitude of facets; from widening doorways to barrier-free showers, installing railings and lifts or fixtures or cabinetry specifically designed for accessibility. When you contact us, we’ll discuss your lifestyle needs, and design a renovation project that is highly customized for you and your family.
During today’s article, we’ll cover the different types of accessible living renovations we’ve completed for many satisfied customers.
Accessible living renovations for people with disabilities
We specialize in barrier-free, accessible living renovations for individuals with physical limitations and disabilities. Typically, starting with a kitchen renovation or bathroom renovation, we look to expand doorways and hallways. This allows great mobility for individuals using wheelchairs or powered chairs. From automatic door openers to sturdy ramps and lifts, we can design your house for better accessibility and comfort. No job is too big of an undertaking – we have expertise in design-build for entire main floor spaces.
Accessible living renovations for seniors and their families
More and more Americans are living out their golden years in the comfort of their own homes. But seniors have special needs when it comes to accessible living renovations. At Hammerdown Home Renovations, we have years of experience renovating houses for our senior clients, keeping safety and ease-of-use at the forefront of our designs.
Our valued senior customers can enjoy renovated easy-to-pull levers and handles, and bathrooms retrofitted with handles and additional safety features. We look at all aspects of any room we are renovating – from lighting and shadow displacement, non-slip / non-glare flooring, or efficient floor plans which reduce the number of steps. Families can rest assured that their senior loved ones are safe and comfortable at home and can age-in-place gracefully.
The bathroom is one of the most high-traffic rooms in your house. But it can also be the most dangerous. Slip and fall accidents are painful and potentially deadly. The harder it is to access the tub or shower unit, the higher the chances of sustaining an injury. Plus, it’s downright unpleasant if you can’t easily use the facilities in your own home.
We pride ourselves on giving our customers world-class, barrier-free bathroom renovations for their bathrooms. Barrier-free refers to removing the tub or shower wall which requires a large step to get over. Then, special attention is paid to drainage systems, so water is collected without creating other slippery surfaces outside of the shower area.
In addition to the focus on barrier-free solutions, for people in wheelchairs, we can create a beautiful, wall-hung vanity with space beneath it for you to comfortably sit. Resizing the toilets is also ideal for residents with walkers and wheelchairs. Plus, we can retrofit your shower and tub unit with handles and other mechanisms for safe and independent bathing.
Accessible living renovations for your kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home. When you come to us looking for an accessible living renovation for your kitchen, we’ll take into consideration your safety and accessibility needs, plus your unique lifestyle needs. In most situations, we lower the cabinets and sinks for people in wheelchairs. We pay special attention to how we configure the floor space and countertops. The goal is a reduction in steps to move through the primary areas. For appliances, we retrofit the stove and oven for safety and ease-of-use. The space holding refrigerators are redesigned to fit an accessible-friendly version.
