Universal Design, Handicap Accessibility & Other Remodeling Services in the Washington, DC and Baltimore Area

Serving Carroll, Frederick, Baltimore, Howard, Montgomery, and Northern Anne Arundel Counties

When building or buying a beautiful Maryland home, you likely anticipate spending years, if not decades, there. Over time, your family or your lifestyle is bound to change, and your house needs to adapt along with it. But how is your home able to answer to the changing needs of your life?

Remodeling services allow your home to grow with you. Owning a home is one of the most substantial investments you’ll make—don’t let it go to waste. You can’t settle for a cramped living environment or unaccommodating spaces, especially if your aging parents or family members with disabilities reside with you. It’s vital they have access to their own privacy and safe areas in the home. No matter your situation, you and your family deserve a comfortable, accessible home.

Design Build Remodeling Group provides a number of professional remodeling services for disability or aging in place needs. We can help you remodel your home to accommodate any and all of the requirements necessary to make your loved ones comfortable and safe!

Handicap Accessibility & Disability Remodeling in Baltimore

Remodeling to accommodate the special needs of a disabled family member includes many changes that make your home more accessible and allows them to be independent. Changes that facilitate easier access to and from rooms may involve enlarging doorways and hallways for walkers or wheelchairs, converting bathrooms to allow for easy wheelchair access, and even adding areas for specialty medical equipment.

When you choose us for your disability remodel, we’ll assess the specific needs of your family and take a comprehensive look around your home to locate areas where improvements would be beneficial.  One of the biggest problems for disabled family members is a multi-level home. Even if your home is multi-level, our team will find ways to adapt it so it’s functional. For example, if there’s no adequate space for a bedroom suite on the first floor, we’ll provide you with a customized addition that provides privacy and all of the necessary amenities your family member may need. Some modifications or an addition might include:

  • Lower counters and cupboards
  • Swing-away hinges
  • Walker and wheelchair accessible bathrooms
  • Raised toilets and grab bars
  • Wall-mounted bathroom sinks
  • Zero-threshold tubs or shower units
  • Wider interior, closet and entry doors
  • Lever-style door handles

Universal Designs

Many families opt to invite their aging parents into their homes instead of helping them find a retirement community or an independent or assisted living facility. When it comes to universal designs for aging-in-place, there are several options available. If you have enough space within your home, consider remodeling that area into a separate bedroom suite with kitchen facilities. Another idea: create a separate-yet-connected living space for one or both of your parents. If your living space is limited, consider renovating a basement or garage to create a private suite or building a small addition onto your home. These additions are usually cozy living spaces that are accessible to the main house by a shared door.

Other remodeling modifications include:

  • Bench seats and grab bars in the shower
  • A walk-in bathtub
  • A hand-held adjustable shower head
  • Slip-resistant flooring
  • Fully-extendable roll-out cabinet drawers

If your family member is still fairly mobile, consider installing no-slip strips on the edge of each step, a second handrail, and lighting along the stairs. If mobility is a concern, you may want to think about installing a stair lift or even a small elevator, which could allow for access to the second floor.
