Stylish Solutions for Living in Place

There really is no place like home. Having a home that is accessible and comfortable to everyone over time can be extremely comforting as families’ physical needs and abilities change. Integrating mobility or aging in place elements and universal design principles can allow homeowners to stay happy in the home they own as they age or as their needs and those of their loved ones change. Classic Kitchen & Bath is committed to helping homeowners design living-in-place features that are aesthetically pleasing and will make their home feel cozy and comfortable – just as it always has.
