Schererville Wheelchair Accessible Remodeling

Schererville Wheelchair Accessible Remodeling

No one wants to think about the prospect of having to remodel a home in order to make it accessible to a loved one (or oneself) with a disability, but becoming disabled at some point in your life is actually very common. In fact, whether due to injury, disease, or just old age, it’s not being pessimistic to think that there may be a point where you or someone else in your life can no longer navigate without the help of a wheelchair. When this is the case, a Schererville home renovation to make a space wheelchair accessible may be a must. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we can help.

Wheelchair Accessible Home Remodeling – Things to Consider

The home has many different parts, and wheelchair accessible home remodeling may be necessary inside and out, and could affect multiple rooms and parts of the home. Some common wheelchair accessible remodels in a home include:

  • Installing kitchen counters at wheelchair accessible heights;
  • Lowering all kitchen appliances, cabinets, drawers, sink, etc.;
  • Installing handrails and grab bars throughout the home, particularly in the bathroom around a tub, toilet, or shower;
  • Installing ramps that lead from the outside to indoors, or that make access to different levels of the home possible;
  • Installing a wall-hung sink;
  • Remodeling a shower so that it is a roll-in shower;
  • Installing a chairlift; and
  • Widening doors so that a wheelchair can pass through.

As stated above, these renovations can affect nearly all parts of the home, and therefore may be a project that is taken on in parts, or requires a family to vacate the home for a period of time depending upon your preferences.

What’s Better – Moving or Improving?

If you or a loved one has recently sustained a disability or condition that requires the use of a wheelchair, you may be wondering whether or not you should move, or improve existing infrastructure and appliances to be more wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately, most homes lack many of the things listed above that make being in a wheelchair in one’s own home much more comfortable, and make continuing life as normal much more possible. As such, even if you move to a new home that has some wheelchair-accessible features in place, such as wide doors or a roll-in shower, you may have to invest in remodels regardless. As such, staying in your own home and working with a professional who can handle all of your wheelchair accessible remodel needs may be a more convenient and affordable option.
