Accessible Design in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

Getting Started with ADA Design

You, or the person you are caring for, are an independent spirit and you want your home to reflect that. In addition to being highly-functional for you to get around with your assistive devices like a wheelchair, you want your home to be beautiful. You’re particular about your needs and care about living in the best possible, most comfortable home. Or you may just want your home to be “invisibly visitable” for your friends and family. Right now, your home may have temporary fixes that are allowing you to get around, but are far from optimal. What you may need are modifications that are high on safety, style, and function.

The Glickman Accessible Design Process

A great remodeling project begins with the process itself. Having clear expectations and explicitly defined steps allows everyone involved to be on the same page. This ensures that there aren’t surprises or thoughts of wishing things had been done differently.  No two remodeling projects are alike and that is why it is critical that a methodical series of steps is followed. At Glickman Design Build, we have a well-defined process that starts from the initial consultation through completion of construction. Our team of remodeling professionals will take the time up front to explain exactly what will happen when and make sure all of your questions are answered along the way.

Budgeting for your Accessible Design Project

One of the biggest questions on a homeowners mind when considering a remodeling project is “How much is it going to cost”?  The size of the space being renovated and the materials that are selected to incorporate into your remodel both play a major role in determining this.  A good place to start is figuring out your budget ahead of time. This will help you and your designer focus on the right options for you.  It’s important to set priorities in case choices need to be modified to stay within your budget. Your designer can be extremely helpful in presenting options that allow you to get the ultimate look and functionality you desire while staying within your budget.
