The biggest safety problem in our homes is falls. Over 1 in 4 seniors fall early year and 33% of all child related injuries are due to a fall down the stairs.
Many of our clients worry that making changes for safety will make their home look like a hospital. After the changes are made they are surprised how subtle and beautiful the improvement are. Manufacturers have improved home safety products in the last five years. Guests don't notice the safety precautions only the beautiful new kitchen or bath are seen. Adding safety elements to your bath or kitchen remodel changes your budget only minimally. It is wise to make changes inside your wall now while you are remodeling so that if you want to add safety elements later you won't need to tear open the wall and start over.
