Remodeling Tips for Baby Boomers
Baby boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, represent more than 76 million people! They are aging, but in a time where ‘50 is the new 30‘, meaning this group of individuals are not ready to head to the retirement home just yet.
They are more active and have a sophisticated style in the types of options and choices in their homes. Whether they are buying a new home or remodeling their current home, here are some of the ‘must have’ features:
1. Home office – Many boomers are choosing to work past the age of 65.
2. Wider doors and hallways – They are thinking about the future and the likelihood that a wheelchair may become a necessity.
3. Better lighting and bigger windows – The need for more lighting increases as we age. Also, adding additional lighting in stairwells and under cabinets.
4. First-floor bedrooms and bathrooms – Over 40% of new homes have master suites downstairs, a 15% increase from over a decade ago. Also, larger more spacious bedrooms with large walk-in closets and bathrooms with separate tub and shower, and dual sinks.
