Mature Transitions by Design
What’s New in Universal Design

Transitioning a home to allow aging in place can be accomplished with both function and style under the direction of an interior designer. A qualified designer can manipulate an existing space to better meet the individual requirements of the client creating a barrier-free plan using aesthetically pleasing products that will add value to the home. The goal is to improve the comfort and usefulness of the living environment.
