Universal Design

One-story living. Places to eat, use the bathroom and sleep are all located on one level, which is barrier-free.

Wide doorways. Doorways that are 32-36 inches wide let wheelchairs pass through. They also make it easy to move big things in and out of the house.

Wide hallways. Hallways should be 36-42 inches wide. That way, everyone and everything moves more easily from room to room.

Extra floor space. Allows plenty of room and wheelchairs have more space to turn.
