Universal Design (UD) is an approach to design that increases the quality of life for a wide range of individuals. For many people when they hear the term Universal Design, they think of Aging in Place.
UD is so much more. For instance, a low threshold, no step entryway works as well for someone with a walker or wheelchair and is just as beneficial for a parent with a stroller. A lever door handle is easier for little hands, arthritic hands or use by a knee for someone with hands filled with groceries. Let our team of experienced and certified designers create an environment in your home that welcomes all.
