Universal Design & Aging in Place
Designing kitchen and bath environments for clients with special limitations requires a particularly sensitive approach and a close client relationship as well as an awareness of the ever-changing product market. As the largest demographic group of society ages, aging-in-place will have a profound impact on the expectations of kitchen and bath environments. Universal Design codes are not client specific but broad in definition. Carolyn F. Cheetham, CMKBD will introduce you to scenarios that convey a broad range of needs and accommodations, and how to address these situations. This specialized level of knowledge and insight will give designers, contractors, manufacturers/fabricators and installers “The Edge” they need to be effective with their clients and stay ahead of their competitors.
