When choosing to build or
renovate your current home to age in place, there are many
adjustments that a person or their family must consider for
their home to ensure life is easy and daily activities remain
safe and comfortable. If you know you or a loved one is
planning on transitioning to this living space, planning and
saving should begin even before retirement. Once the planning
stage has begun, here are some considerations to make for
Making life easier doesn’t
mean just making it more comfortable in general - it means
compensating for some of the changes humans go through
natural as we age. Some may begin to lose their eyesight or
have less mobility and strength. If the lighting throughout
the home is dim, new fixtures or bulbs may need to be added.
Frequently used kitchen items may need to be moved to lower
cabinets. If sink faucets and door handles are difficult to
open, consider replacing hardware.
Safety is the biggest concern
for most people aging in place. Does the bathtub or shower
require a big step to enter, or have bars for stability? Is
the flooring throughout the home slip-resistant? Your home
may have different modifications than others - stay updated
on health records and make adjustments accordingly.
to the World
Maintaining a connection to
the world outside the home is just as important as what
happens inside the home. You may need to build a ramp or
install railings to aid with mobility when entering and
exiting the home. Home automation and other technology can be
helpful for contacting emergency services or family

Are subway tiles still a
popular choice? Do granite vanity tops still cut it? If
you’re planning a bathroom remodel this year, you’re probably
feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information and
inspiration available online in 2019. With thousands of
Pinterest boards, online home decorating magazines, and home
renovation projects on YouTube channels, it can be tough to
decipher between what trends will stick around and keep your
home value high, and those that will flop as a new generation
of home buyers begin their search. Check out these trends for
remodeling your bathroom that should outlast this year’s fads
Plain, boring bathrooms are
out, however painting your entire bathroom with a selection
from the Pantone® Color Palette of the Year means you’ll
likely have to do more renovating when you’re ready to sell.
Make your space more interesting by adding colorful accents
on hardware, mirror frames, accessories or even easy to
remove peel-and-stick wallpaper.
Open your bathroom up with
lots of light by using a neutral base color palate, mirrors
to reflect natural light coming in, shower glass instead of
curtains and strategic lighting fixtures over the mirrors.
You’ll feel more relaxed, awake and closer to nature, and
your guests will appreciate being able to do their makeup
without squinting from a harsh yellow-toned overhead
Remodeling in 2019 isn’t just
about looks - it’s about being energy efficient and
eco-friendly. If you plan on replacing your fixtures and
appliances, invest in low-flow toilets and more efficient
showerheads and sink faucets. While the initial cost may be
higher, you’ll have lower utility bills and appeal to future
buyers who are on the lookout for “green” homes.
Of course, you don’t always
have to follow the trends exactly - be sure to stick to your
own personal style for a consistent look throughout your

your furniture surfaces? Or you wake up with a scratchy
throat and stuffy nose? The air quality in your home has a
big effect on your everyday life, whether you’re aware of it
or not. But, how can you determine if the quality of your air
Of course, the easiest way to
measure the air quality of your home is to purchase an Air
Quality Monitor, or hire a professional who can complete a
thorough assessment. However, there are a few signs you can
look for yourself that will tell you if your air quality
The first sign many people
notice is your own health. However, there may be visual
symptoms of poor air quality as well, such as mold or foggy
air. If you start to feel allergy symptoms or get frequent
headaches in your own home, it may be time to make some
· Have you checked and changed your air filters
lately? Most air filters are good for around 90 days, and
then should be replaced to make sure clean air is coming out
of your air system at an efficient rate. If you have multiple
pets in your home, you may need to replace it more
· What about your HVAC system? When was the last
time you scheduled an inspection and cleaning?
If you have cleaned your home,
your air system, and gotten rid of potential allergens like
aerosols, paints and cleaners, and are still concerned about
air quality, you may also want to invest in an air purifier,

What Our Customers Are Saying...
windows were installed with ease and the installers were very
professional. And when I needed a replacement of one of
previously installed windows, due to breakage, Jeremy was great.
He assured me everything was going to be ok and it was. My window
was replaced by another professional and courteous installer, and
all is well! Thank you New Windows For America!"— Andrea P.
