Bathroom Modifications

Bathrooms may be the most dangerous room in the home for those with mobility issues. Yet there are some specific projects that we can complete to minimize this risk and assist in making your home a safe and enjoyable space.

Many seniors try to get by with their existing bathrooms, but bath fixtures and towel racks are inadequate to support weight and assist with balance. Wet floors and slippery tiles, along with toilets that are too low and close to the wall can become real safety hazards.

Simple things like faucets, knobs or other bathroom fixtures can cause problems. Round knob handles which were easy to turn at one time, can become difficult to grip and turn.

Handyman Matters can quickly solve these challenges and more for your home:

  • Raise a toilet
  • Reinforce walls for safety products.
  • Install Grab Bars
  • Add adjustable height shower heads
  • Install Walk-in Shower
  • Install Walk-in Tub
  • Upgrade to non-slip flooring options
  • Add temperature regulated lever faucets
  • And many more…

Kitchen Modifications

Kitchen modifications can help a person continue to live independently and safely. Hard to reach counters, sinks and appliances, and slippery surfaces can make cooking difficult and potentially lead to accidents.

Smart design blends aesthetics with smart solutions to improve life for all, creating safety, independence and freedom in the kitchen even as mobility changes. The idea is to create products and home environments that are universally appealing and adaptable to benefit everyone.

Kitchen modifications can include:

  • Install sliding, revolving, pull-down, and/or motorized shelves
  • Adjustable cabinets, counters and sinks
  • Hand grips
  • Easy grip faucets, lever handles and knobs
  • Non-slip surfaces
  • Install hanging racks
  • Lowering counters and sinks
  • Installing accessible appliances
  • And many more…

Exterior Home Modifications

Don't feel like a prisoner in your own home; call Handyman Matters for a home exterior evaluation.

Exterior modifications make it easier to age in place by providing easy access in and out of the home. Exterior modifications allow you or your loved ones to remain connected to the outside world, in a safe and easy manner. By addressing exterior concerns like steps, porches and poor lighting, everyone can come and go without worry so the house remains a home.

Entrance remodeling greatly improves mobility going in and out of the home. Handyman Matters will evaluate the exterior of the home and may recommend widening doorways and adding modular ramps or porch lifts and railings to allow you to remain connected and independent.

Exterior modifications include the following:

  • Access ramps
  • Railings
  • Porch lifts
  • Widening entrance doors
  • Signage and doorbells
  • Package shelves
  • Lever handles
  • Lighting
Bathroom Remodeling

When you consider a more extensive bathroom remodel, rely upon Handyman Matters' years of experience for professional solutions that will help your bathroom adapt with as your abilities change. Some remodeling options like reinforcing walls for future grab bar installation, widening doorways and installing a shower with a low or no threshold are smart choices.

For those who currently use a walker or wheelchair, these changes along with a platform to raise the height of toilet seats greatly improve bathroom accessibility.

Handyman Matters 50-point home safety assessment will identify concerns so our Craftsmen can provide the appropriate solutions for your bathroom.
