Home Design Keywords

The home industry is always changing and growing. Along with those changes come new buzz words that on occasion, need some additional explanation.

Here is a quick list we developed to clear up any confusion on what these terms mean.

Accessible - In terms of home design and construction this term applies to creating a home that is capable of being used by all, despite age or health related concerns

Universal Design - Creating home and work environments accessible to people with and without disabilities

Aging-in-Place - The Center for Disease Control defines aging in place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.

Are there any terms you would like to learn more about?
