Steve Hoffackerabout this book: Universal design is a strategy for creating effective living spaces that transcends people's ages, abilities, and needs. It works for everyone except those requiring very specialized assistance in their homes. Regardless of someone's height, physical strength, range of motion, ability to get around, height, or age, a universal design approach to lighting controls, faucets, sinks, countertops, cabinets, handles, steps, doorways, bathrooms, and so much more means that people have access to their own homes and don't have to struggle using various aspects of it. Additionally, it provides comfort, convenience, safety, and security – as well as adding value to the home that the next owner will appreciate. Aging in place goes hand-in-hand with universal design, and the concepts presented and discussed in this book appeal to consumers who want to do their own improvements and professionals who will create solutions for those who can't or don't want to do their own work. Learn how many aspects of your home you can address successfully with universal design.
