ADA Compliant Kitchen

What is Accessible Remodeling?

Homeowners or their family members who are injured, disabled, or elderly often require accessibility upgrades to ensure their properties are safe and functional for them.

123 Remodeling designers and builders can help you create a safe, accessible, and comfortable home for your family members and guests.

We’ll start with a consultation to assess your needs, and then we create a list of recommendations for an accessible remodeling and  aging-in-place home improvements.

Additionally, we will maintain your home’s appeal to a broad market, should you eventually sell your home, to help recoup your investment.

Accessible Bathroom Remodeling

A handicap-accessible bathroom is usually a primary goal for accessible remodels.

The bathroom presents a lot of access challenges for people who use a wheelchair. Bathroom safety is one of the top reasons to make a home accessible because more than 60% of emergencies are happening due to bathroom falls.

123 Remodeling experts can help you build and install:

  • Barrier-free shower (also called roll-in or curbless shower) with no or low threshold.
  • A shower bench to help a person sit in the shower and slip-proof flooring to prevent accidents.
  • Good even lighting, optionally with motion sensors.
  • Roll-under or sit-down vanity.
  • A walk-in bathtub, accessible spa, or hydrotherapy tubs.
  • Lever-handled or hands-free sink controls.
  • Grab bars, handrails, or other assistive accessories.
  • Comfort-height toilet (according to ADA guidelines) or bidet.
  • Easy access to storage and supplies.

Accessible Remodeling For Handicap

Accessible Kitchen Remodeling​

A handicap-accessible kitchen allows people to live independently in their homes. Modifying a kitchen is one of the most important steps to assist someone in remaining in their home if they have physical limitations.

With all the advances in ADA compliant design, a beautiful and organized kitchen can be remodeled to be accessible for everyone who lives in a home whether or not they’re handicap. When building an accessible kitchen you have to consider:

  • ADA compliant roll-under sinks and counters for easy wheelchair access. 
  • Lowered kitchen cabinets and special soft-close full-extension drawers.
  • Durable and bright LED lighting with motion sensors.
  • Single lever, dual lever, and automatically activated kitchen faucets.
  • Appliances installed at wheelchair height.
  • Open space concept to increase clearance.
  • Voice controls for oven, lighting, cooktops.
