What is Universal Design?
Universal Design means creating a stylish space that everyone can live in. The idea is to design a home that fits everyone's need regardless of age, size, ability. With age our ability and agility changes and often we find our home no longer suits our needs. In the past this meant making changes that did not flow with the current design and stuck out as sterile and obvious. Today, Universal Design means beauty and style is no longer compromised for comfort. In fact, one would not realize they are in a home with Universal Design features unless they were pointed out to them.
