WHAT IS UNIVERSAL DESIGN?

AccessAble Home Modifications commits itself to use universal design fixtures and practices in all of our accessibility projects.

Universal design, also called inclusive design, focuses on the idea that all people (elderly, disabled, non-disabled) should have equal access to all environments. The ideals of universal design stem from the concept of barrier-free designing. The key point is that style and aesthetics should remain intact, creating beautiful, functional, and inclusive surroundings.

The notion of universal design is the opposite of the bland, sterile environments frequently seen in hospitals and medical facilities.

How Do We

Incorporate Universal Design into Your Accessibility Project?

We incorporate universal design to help those with mobility difficulties in several ways including:

Before we begin your modifications, our mobility experts will work with you and consult with registered occupational therapists. Our goal is to understand what features you need to make your home safe and barrier-free.

Our next step is to use universal design concepts and fixtures to make your space fully accessible and barrier-free. At the same time, the area will look beautiful, and most people will not be aware of the fact that accessibility modifications took place.

Some of Our Projects Include:
universal design bathroom with accessible shower with no hob
universal design accessible bathroom
EVP Wetroom

Once our accessibility experts understand your exact needs and what modifications and safety features will be necessary, they work with our design team to implement. Our goal is to make the space fully accessible to your specific needs, while other users are barely aware (or totally unaware) of any of the safety features.

Universal design spaces tend to be more open, free from clutter, and functional. Although we design to suit your existing floor plan, our accessibility experts will work to maximise your floor space and reduce unnecessary clutter wherever possible to improve safety, aesthetics, and mobility.
