Aging in Place? Get That Laundry Room Out of The Basement!
Offering aging in place and accessibility remodeling includes a wide range of services from grab bars to ramps. One of the most common requests, usually encouraged by adult children is moving the laundry room. Having aging parents trekking into the dark cold (or maybe beautifully finished) basement to complete a load of laundry is just too risky.
According to the CDC "Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults." Wrestling a laundry basket or hamper up and down the stairs only exacerbates the risk.
The solution: Move the laundry room. It seems like an impossible task to move all of those utilities but I promise you it can be done. Careful planning and consideration for routing all plumbing, mechanical and electrical services must be taken in order to minimize damage to existing finishes and maximize performance and efficiency of laundry systems.
While it seems like an extremely invasive remodel, moving the laundry room can take as little as 3 days, a small price to pay for safety.
