Aging In Place: How to Design Your Forever Home Renovation

Balancing your current wants and your future needs is always critical when thinking about embarking on a home renovation. If you are planning on spending your golden years in your current home there are some important design considerations that will allow your home to remain both comfortable and functional far into the future. Our Design Team at Legacy Kitchens are experts in intentional design to make your home accessible and future proof.


Make meal prep and clean up simple with some careful considerations. Features like a large kitchen island with multiple levels will allow for everyone to get involved in the cooking process. Touch-activated faucets can help reduce your water consumption and keep tasks such as hand washing and food prep within arms reach. Incorporating targeted storage solutions such as roll-out shelving will help keep everything tidy and easy to access.

How to Design Your Forever Home Reno


Create feelings of both comfort and rejuvenation by exploring design features like non-slip flooring, a large shower with curbless entry, and shower/tub seating. Additional modifications such as adjustable mirrors and recessed vanities will allow for comfortable and independent usage for years to come.

How to Renovate Your Forever Home

Total Home

An open concept design can bring spaciousness to your home, remove obstacles and provide long lines of sight. Extra-wide hallways and entryways make it easier to navigate tight corners. Thoughtful design will allow your lighting to be both beautiful and functional. Explore lighting solutions that bring bold dimension to your space and illuminate areas with potentially low visibility.
