How is an aging baby boomer generation changing the design of homes?


Universal design is based on several concepts:

  • Equitable use: All people use the design features in the same way.
  • Flexibility in use: The feature can be adjusted depending on the user; for example, both right- and left-handed people could use it.
  • Simple and intuitive: Any user could understand the feature, regardless of knowledge level or language.
  • Perceptive information: It’s easy to determine information associated with the feature.
  • Tolerance for error: The design minimizes danger and potential consequences of misuse.
  • Low physical effort: You won’t break a sweat.
  • Size and space for approach and use: Whether seated or standing, you have the room to get around and the ability to reach for things.
