More Expansive Halls, Entries, and Turn Spaces
Whether you or a family member requires a wheelchair, crutches, or another mobility aid, getting around your house shouldn’t be challenging. Peak Improvements can widen narrow spaces in your home to ensure the room is functional and aesthetically pleasing. For instance, we can open up your hallways and bedroom so that it’s easier to navigate and ensure that you or your family members have enough space to turn around without getting blocked or stuck.
Lower Switches and Raise Outlets
Making light switches more accessible can mean lowering them so that anyone can reach the lights regardless of their mobility. Peak Improvements can also change the type of light switch used in your home to have larger buttons or sliding controls. Similarly, raising the height of your electrical outlets from the ground can be more convenient and safe for those with accessibility needs. Raised outlets can also help keep wires and cords off the floor, which is otherwise a potential tripping hazard.
Glass-enclosed walk-in showers are quickly growing in popularity, not just because they look good but also because they’re more accessible and great for aging-in-place. These easy-access showers are great for those with mobility issues where a bathtub isn’t going to cut it. Peak Improvements will ensure that there’s no raised lip on the edge of the shower door (a tripping risk) and can include a bench and grab bars for safe, seated showers. Textured tiles are another great option as they can make the bathroom floor less slippery, even if they get wet.
Lower the Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of your home, and ensuring it’s accessible and safe is critical. Peak Improvements can lower the height of your countertops and cabinets to make navigating your kitchen easier. In addition, opting for front-control appliances instead of appliances with controls on the back is a great way to improve the accessibility of your kitchen. There are plenty of ways Peak Improvements can renovate your kitchen to make it more accessible without compromising on aesthetics and functionality.
