Enabling the Disabled with Interior Design!
This is a fantastic video of 25 soldiers coming home to surprise their loved ones! See how far you can make it before tearing up. I was grabbing the tissue box 5 seconds in.
Now after you have gained your composure and reapplied your mascara, below we have featured some great finds that incorporate ADA compliant designs that are comfortable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.
With many of our troops coming home throughout this year, some soldiers have been wounded in combat and are permanently disabled, resulting in necessary changes to the functionality of their home. This does not mean that your design remodels have to resemble hospital rooms. With strict ADA guidelines in interior design and architecture these days, enabling the disabled has become virtually unnoticeable.
According to the ADA website, ” By breaking down these barriers, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will enable society to benefit from the skills and talents of individuals with disabilities, will allow us all to gain from their increased purchasing power and ability to use it, and will lead to fuller, more productive lives for all Americans.”
Now any of these designs and remodels can be for anyone who was born with disabilities, who has become disabled, or has a growing ailment with age and requires better accessibility and comfort.
