Universal Design & Barrier Free Conversions

Improving Accessibility & Removing Barriers in MD & VA Homes

Age, illness, or injury can make living in the home you love difficult. You and your loved ones may even be considering moving into a more accessible living space to accommodate. This could mean leaving friends, family, and your home behind.

If you or a loved one are facing this decision but don’t want to or cannot afford to leave your home, universal design or barrier-free design may be for you.

Universal design aims to make a person’s current home environment accessible for a wide range of adaptations without feeling clinical or intrusive. Changes such as motion-sensing light switches, ramps instead of stairs, and grab bars can help you remain in your home.
