Share Article

As many Americans are planning for life after retirement, some homeowners are concerned about how their homes will remain suitable for them in their later years. Roto-Rooter Denver explains that “universal designs” in bathrooms can help make these transitions easier.

Today, many Americans remain concerned about reducing retirement costs, including those that involve housing and remodeling issues. A recent article from The Norwich Bulletin reveals that those who pursue “universal design” in remodels may save themselves money, time and effort during the later years of retirement. As a company that assists with many plumbing repairs and remodels, Roto-Rooter Denver endorses the emerging concept of universal design, as one that can help older homeowners create rooms that will prove efficient and provide comfort throughout the years.

The article in The Norwich Bulletin begins with a question from a reader that reveals a problem that older homeowners commonly face. It states, “My wife and I are in our early 50s and we plan on completely remodeling our master bathroom. Hopefully, this will be our last big home-improvement project, and we want to stay here after the house is paid off in 10 years. Can you give us some plumbing advice on what we should do now with this project that can save us another remodeling job down the road?” Master plumber and LEED green associate Ed Del Grande responds, “There is a new popular trend on the remodeling scene, and it's called ‘universal design’—UD, for short. Basically, UD bathrooms allow people of all ages to use the space comfortably. A UD remodeling job now may keep you from needing a bathroom update later.”

Roto-Rooter Denver responds in a recent press statement, “UD is an important new segment of the plumbing and construction market. It reveals that individuals are thinking about ways they can reduce costs and pursue intelligent design that will last into the later years.” According to the article, there are many ways individuals can implement universal designs in their bathroom. For instance, homeowners can have “comfort-height” installed toilets, appropriate for all ages. The article also recommends installing side-by-side sinks that have different level heights of countertops. Walk-in showers are also noted as a benefit to those who may need extra stability as they age, in comparison to less convenient traditional bathtub models.

Roto-Rooter Denver encourages these kinds of remodeling plans, and concludes in its press statement, “Roto-Rooter Denver plumbing technicians are standing by to help any homeowner pursue and discuss the potential behind universal design remodels. This company remains dedicated to educating consumers about different kinds of plumbing options and can help install beneficial fixtures, such as ‘comfort-height’ toilets if a consumer chooses to go that direction.”
