This means making remodeling adjustments to accommodate the senior and elderly population. Our priorities shift as we age. What may have been fine 30 years ago no longer works for us.
The floor takes center stage in that effort. Here, two choices stand out: vinyl and carpet. Both are consistently updated to stay on-trend.
Vinyl flooring: the number one choice
This flooring is the "darling" of senior community developers because of its non-skid surface and affordable style.
No more flat images of the vinyl flooring of decades past! Today, vinyl floors come with textures, depth, and dimension. In addition, it's waterproof, durable, and low maintenance.
Vinyl is resilient flooring, so the surfaces are warm, flexible, and comfortable on which to stand or walk.
The luxury vinyl version has an additional option. It is cut into long planks or square, tile-sized pieces.
Carpeting is one of the best choices for seniors
There's nothing like elegant carpet spaces. It comes in many styles, colors, and textures, and There's something for everyone and every budget.
There are a few things that make carpeting ideal. One is the non-skid surface. Another is the cushioning that can soften falls; of course, the thicker, the better.
Third is both the noise and temperature insulation. It deadens the sounds of footsteps, beeping devices, and muffled conversations, making it especially great for the bedroom.
It also blocks out cold and hot air, which makes a room cozy and warm or cool when needed.
