There’s a growing movement within our society toward realizing better universal design in our homes, and now is your chance to capitalize on this lifestyle choice.
LakewoodAlive will host Knowing Your Home: Bringing Universal Design Into Your Home on Thursday, June 6, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Lakewood Public Library (15425 Detroit Avenue). The seventh workshop of 2019 for this popular home maintenance educational series will cover how to incorporate the seven principles of universal design into your home.
Led by our friends at Maximum Accessible Housing of Ohio, this unique workshop will offer clear examples of features you can add and improvements you can make to increase the accessibility and safety of your home so that people of all ages can enjoy it.
Universal design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. Because of universal design, people in all stages of life can all enjoy the same home, and that home will be there for all its inhabitants even when their needs change.
