Gilding the golden years

Designing for seniors ...

"Imagine strolling into your luxury home without breaking your stride to climb stairs. In the kitchen, painted your favorite color, your glass-top stove wipes clean after dinner and the single-lever kitchen faucet swivels easily as you rinse the dishes.

Should you spill a glass of red wine on your designer sofa during an after-dinner toast with friends in front of a two-story living-room fireplace, no worries. You can practically sweep the stuff off the stain-repellent upholstery.

If you're a senior, these are the types of amenities and products that can make life easier. Apartment residences such as Holly Creek in Centennial, Boulder's Academy and the Lodge at Balfour in Louisville offer many of these features. Even better, they contain design ideas and products you can use in your own home to make your life easier at any age."   (Continued via Rocky Mountain News)   [Ergonomics Resources]
