To make a home accessible, construction companies need to make some changes in the architectural designs and their construction process. Accessibility in a new property can only be achieved through these changes and by integrating accessibility features. Not only does the home needs some major changes in the bathroom, kitchen and handrails, it also needs to have some added safety features like grab bars throughout the homes and non-slippery flooring in bathroom with shower seat to reduce the risk of falling. Other adaptations and changes in the architectural design can improve the accessibility too.
Top Requirements to Make a Home Accessible:
There are seven top requirements to make a property accessible. Some of them are:
- An accessible route at the entrance of the home
- Commonly accessible public use areas
- Wheelchair compatible doors and windows
- Easy accessible routes inside the house
- Power outlets, switches and thermostats in accessible locations.
- Grab bars in bathroom and other locations around the house
- Kitchen and bathroom countertops at a lower height

Whether you are choosing to build an accessible home or want to make your home accessible through renovation and remodeling, you need to hire an experienced and licensed construction service provider in your city. Discuss with the contractor or builder about your needs and the types of home modifications you would like to include in your home. Check with the construction company to learn more about the range of safety products and accessible equipment they use in new home construction and in home remodeling.
