Question: What makes a home universal design?
Answer: This answer is from my friends at Blue Ridge Home Improvement Inc, as per their fall 2013 newsletter. It’s simple. Everyone can live there and enjoy it! It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, short or tall, healthy or ill. You might have a disability. Or you may be a top athlete. Because of universal design, people who are very different can enjoy the same home. One specific example is 36 inch wide doors which allows standard wheelchairs to pass as well as makes it easier to move furniture, luggage, and laundry throughout the house. Another example is an adjustable height shower head that allows everyone to have a safe and enjoyable shower.
