When we think about our future as we age, it can be daunting to imagine moving into a new home and starting over. In fact, it’s usually more practical to make your home work better for you than to try and find a new home that will meet your needs down the road. This is especially true if you love your home and want to make it work for your next season in life. Tom’s Best Quality Remodeling can offer some remodeling tips to make your home more functional and accessible if you want to stay there long term.

Bathroom Remodeling for Aging in Place

Add a First Floor Bedroom Addition

Even though you likely have no problem ascending and descending the stairs countless times in a typical day, there may come a time when it’s more difficult for you. Now may be the most optimal time to relocate your bedroom to the main floor of your home. We can build an addition for a brand new bedroom suite so that it’s more accessible for you when the time comes. Plus, increasing the bedroom count in your home will boost its overall value.

Make Your Bathroom More Accessible 

If you anticipate that you are in your forever home, there are ways you can make your bathroom more accessible. Tom’s Best Quality Remodeling can design and install a walk-in shower that will be much easier to get in and out of than a bathtub when daily tasks become more challenging. You can enjoy the convenience and extra touch of luxury of having a walk-in shower now before it becomes a necessity for you someday.

Relocate Your Laundry Room

Older homes often had laundry fixtures in the basement before home builders had the innovative idea to move them to the main or even the second level, where the bedrooms are located. While that’s very convenient throughout the years when your kids are younger, and you have a constant flow of laundry, there will come a time when it’s easier to have your laundry room on the main level of your home. This is especially true if you move your main bedroom to the first floor.
