Designing The Seniors’ Living Room

When you are younger, home decorating seemed to be very easy. All you have to do is to plan out your favorite theme and pick your favorite colors. However, aging in place makes home decorating a challenge. There are a lot of important things to consider like effects in your heath, which greatly restrict you from your own choices and preferences.

A lot of seniors wanted to live in their homes as much as possible. Thus, it is also important that you spend time making your living room environment a safer and user-friendly place for you.

If you or your spouse uses the wheelchair a lot, you should redecorate your interior with light sliding door that is in proportion and width to your wheelchair.

Your flooring should also be made of thin carpets that are fit to your floors so you avoid tripping. Avoid polished hardwood flooring as this tends to be slippery.
