Your Home: Make It A Destination
You’ve heard the phrase “make it a destination” when taking about a vacation spot, or a place you go for entertainment. Well, throughout 2022 we’re going to tweak that concept just a bit and ask the question, “how do you make your home a destination”? Not just a destination you go to after work or stay in at night for sleep, but a home you want to be in. A location that you have had an active roll in designing. A place that wow’s you every time you notice some design aspect, or nuanced detail that reflects your personal touch.
The fact is, homeowners are staying in their homes for much longer than ever before. And they are looking for design ideas that will give them the comfort, style, ease, and security that will help make the decision to create their destination home that much easier.

Universal Design and Accessibility Design work hand-with slight differences
Universal Design considers the wide spectrum of human abilities. It aims to exceed minimum standards to meet the needs of the greatest number of people. Universal design, also called barrier-free design, because it focuses on making the house safe and accessible for everyone, regardless of age, physical ability, or stature.
Accessible Design is focused on the needs of people with disabilities. When focusing on Accessible Design for your home, special attention will be paid to providing designs and appliances which are tailored to the individual with special needs.
Here are few considerations you can include in your vision for a Destination Home:
Open Up the Layout
Pay Attention to Outlets and Switch Placement
Make Storage Accessible
Ensure Safer Stairways
Choose Durable Countertops and Lower Work Surfaces
Add Smart Home Technology
Use multi-level kitchen countertops
Install multifunctional grab bars
Replace doors with sliding glass
Install cabinet less bathroom counters for wheelchair access
