Universal design is the concept of creating a home that accommodates everyone living within the household, consequently making things safer, easier and more convenient for everyone regardless of age. Universal Design goes further by recognizing that there is a wide range of human abilities. Everyone, even the most able-bodied person, passes through childhood, periods of temporary illness, injury and old age.
Designing a kitchen that is barrier-free is desirable. Cabinets with pull-out shelves, kitchen counters at several heights to accommodate different tasks and postures are other examples. Bathroom upgrades that enrich functionality are also on the uprise.
Universally Designed products can have an eye-catching value. A designer must also appreciate that the usability of a product can be influenced by its appearance. Individuals tend to find designs easier to use if they look easy to use.
Universal Design is not a design style or trend. Rather, it is an approach to designing that can be applied to any design style or trend.
