What is different about the surge in residential remodeling is the need for accessibility.

One definition of accessibility as it relates to in-home living is ” all the aspects which influence a person’s ability to function within an environment”. In other words, as you move about your home are the pathways, appliances, and other amenities easy to use and operate?
