Before starting your remodeling project, Spectrum Homes and Remodeling will take the time to work with you to define your family’s needs and talk to you about how you currently use the space, what health issues – current and future – should be considered, and how a Universal Design remodel can help make your space safer and easier to use. Universal Design is a trend that recognizes that safety and accessibility make life more convenient for everyone – whether it is an older adult, a family with young children, or a family that is handling a disability. It also helps keep your family under one roof and preserves independence for a long as possible.
