Enhancing the Look of Aging in Place

Start Date:4/26/2018

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:45 minutes


Some of today’s clients are in denial when it comes to accommodating for future – or even present – needs. Part of that is pride, but part of that is because they have the preconceived notion that aging-in-place design has to be clinical to be functional. Today’s designers are accredited with the opportunity to design these spaces with aesthetics in mind as well, because no client asks for their bathroom to look like something they would find in a hospital. This webinar will touch on how to design all facets of the bathroom for those aging in place, keeping function and aesthetics in mind.
