“Aging in place is a trend that we don’t see disappearing any time soon, as many Baby Boomers are reaching retirement or are currently caring for elderly loved ones in their own homes,” says Mike Foti, president of Innovate Building Solutions. “Universal design increases accessibility for all users, regardless of age, size or physical mobility. So the question becomes, how can we make universal design more financially feasible? At Innovate, we offer many products and online tutorials that are great for DIY consumers who want to implement universal design trends while staying within their budget.”
The bathroom is often at the top of the list for universal design remodeling. For a safer shower at an affordable price, Innovate Building Solutions’ Tuff Form zero-threshold shower base is lightweight, easy to work with, and can be sized to fit the space that is available—perfect for those looking to eliminate the installation costs from a third-party contractor. In addition, Innovate also offers waterproofing kits for customers who opt to convert their bathrooms into fully functioning “wet rooms,” where the entire room acts as the shower enclosure.
Aside from being a nationwide supplier of these products and many others, Innovate Building Solutions also offers regional installation in Cleveland, Ohio and the surrounding areas through its Cleveland Design and Remodeling branch. The expert staff members are also Certified-Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS).
With the 65-and-older population expected to double over the next 20 years, now is the time to make plans for incorporating universal design and creating a space that can be enjoyed for many years to come.
