In this blog post, I’ll outline the most common remodeling projects for those individuals who prefer to age-in-place rather than purchasing a downtown high-rise condo with all the bells and whistles that meet their needs as they get older.
When it comes to the most sought-after aging-in-place projects, bathrooms dominate the top spot.
In a recent NAHB survey, more than eight out of 10 reported are installing grab bars (89%), higher toilets (85%) and curbless showers (82%) made the list as the most common aging-in-place projects.
Another items that made the list; widening doorways was the next most-common project on the list, came in at a distance 59%, followed by added lighting.
NAHB senior economist Paul Emrath provides more details in this Eye on Housing blog post.
