In considering building your new home or renovating an existing space you want a design which accommodates your needs so you can live comfortably and safely at any age. Don Simms Design Build can assist aging in place design by incorporating wide doorways in order to accommodate both a stroller and a wheelchair; grab bars in the kitchen and bathrooms, and smooth entry transitions which prevent tripping hazards. Our goal is to incorporate aging in place design concepts in order to create homes that are barrier-free and easy to live in at any age. Some of the aging in place options to consider include:

  • Wider Doorways and Hallways;
  • Fully accessible Bathrooms and Kitchens;
  • Floor surface materials and thresholds which prevent tripping;
  • Ramps built for easy access;
  • Accessible bath tub and showers designs
  • Strategically located grab bars and handrails;
  • Accessible closet designs;
  • Care taker or In-law apartment;
  • Elevators;
  • Chair lifts.
