We understand that your home is a lot more than just bricks and mortar. The longer we live at a property, the more it becomes a place filled with precious family memories and experiences, making it a lot harder to move on – should it become impractical to remain there in later life.
However, with developments in accessibility products for domestic use continuing to improve, instead of uprooting your life when moving between floors becomes harder or your financial situation changes due to retirement, you can adapt your family home to suit these challenges.
Here are some things to consider when making sure your home can stand the test of time;
- Energy Efficient: By taking the time to replace outdated appliances and using more energy efficient models, you will ensure that your utility bills will benefit in the long-term.
- Smart Technology: The development of ‘Smart Home’ technology allows you to control things such as lighting, heating and other electronic systems throughout the home using a mobile device. This will make a great deal of difference when it’s no longer possible to move around with ease and it will be worth the initial investment.
- Accessibility: If your property is more than one floor, you may have to consider how you will move between levels when stairs become too difficult. By installing a product such as Stiltz Home Elevators you can eliminate that concern without it impacting the appearance of your home.
Remember to Think Ahead
One of the most important parts of ensuring the future proofing of your family home, is adapting before it’s a necessity rather than waiting until it’s too late.
If you wait until the changes are essential to your independence you may have to pay premium costs for faster delivery or have the additional concern of finding appropriate accommodation whilst the works are underway.
By thinking ahead and having the necessary facilities in place, you can rest easy knowing that you will be able to continue living at your home well into the future.
