What is a Whole Home Renovation?

A whole home renovation typically includes more than one room or area, and often several areas to be renovated or remodeled. Whether you choose to get one or several areas of your home remodeled or renovated, you should always take the same approach.

  • Handrails – placed throughout the bathroom, including around the toilet and shower.
  • Toilet – should be higher and more elongated than a standard toilet with room on both sides.
  • Vanity Height – floating vanity structures allow easier accessibility to sinks.
  • Zero Threshold Showers - allow wheelchairs to enter without any curbs.

  • Countertop height – countertops should be low enough to use as a workspace.
  • Island space – there should be enough space to easily move around the island.
  • Sinks & cooktops – should be reachable and have enough legroom to safety reach the faucet and cooktop controls.

Finally, general home navigation should be considered.

  • Exterior ramps – should be used instead of stairs.
  • Residential elevators – can be an option if budget allows.
  • Stairlift – a modification for homes with stairways.
