Steve Hoffacker about this book: Universal design is a great approach for helping people age in place successfully and remain in their homes – regardless of their current age or how long they already have lived in their homes. Whether consumers are interested in doing their own remodeling and renovation or they plan on having professional designers and contractors provide it, safety is the main objective that universal design improvements will achieve. There are many other reasons for incorporating universal design strategies and treatments into remodeling, renovating, or building new construction, such as comfort, convenience, and accessibility. Nevertheless, safety in and around the home is the key. Whether it's entrances, passageways, flooring, windows, appliances, fixtures, being able to reach and use various features in the home, air quality, lighting, or so many other factors, safety is at the root of all of these considerations. This book focuses on the many different types of universal design improvements that can be used to make a home safer now – and to remain that way.
