Multi-generational homes are a great option for many families. If you’re looking for ways to accommodate the needs of multiple generations, consider adding some of these features to make your home more accessible and navigable.
Walk-in Tub or Shower
Falling down when entering or exiting a tub can be a big concern for some people. Installing a walk-in tub or shower can help prevent injury.
If your home has any stairs (even just one or two high) that don’t have handrails, consider adding some. This upgrade won’t break the bank and can protect those you love when going up and down the stairs. Handrails can also help getting in and out of the shower or toilet.
There are a lot of places in your home that could be tripping or slipping hazards. Make sure you don’t have cords on the ground and make sure your rugs don’t interfere if someone in your home uses a walker. You can also make the shower and stairs safer by adding non-slip strips.
Some homes also require more extensive upgrades, such as widening the doors or hallways. Consider adding features to your home before you list it for sale that will appeal to a broader market of buyers.
