Universal Design = Peace of Mind
Transitioning a home to allow aging in place can be accomplished with both function and style under the direction of a designer. A qualified designer can manipulate an existing space to better meet the individual requirements of the client by creating a Lifestyle Plan for a barrier-free home renovation. This plan will camouflage the functional attributes with an attractive visual design.
Mature Transitions by Design services and supports the greater Chicagoland community. Products and a portion of its profits are donated to an inner-city grade school and Habitat for Humanity.

"We want you to know how pleased we are with our move. The furniture arrangement is spectacular! Everything looks so nice! The extras such as closet and kitchen pieces are needed and we are certainly using the added space. Also for us, it was getting rid of the entire basement. It was a miracle. Thank you so very much."

"Thank you so much for solving my problem. I am very grateful to you for the great job you did for me in moving things in and settling the apartment. I've watched several new residents struggle and if it hadn't been for you and your crew, I might still be in my former home. I was blessed by having you perform a miracle. Once more thank you."
