There’s no secret here. The baby boomer generation is aging and starting to enter their golden years. This represents a significant opportunity for interior designers & home remodelers. What’s being called a “Silver Tsunami” is about to take the industry by storm. Most baby boomers are choosing, as we already knew, to “age in place.” Fewer and fewer are migrating to assisted living facilities and wanting to retire in their “forever home.” This presents challenges that companies like ours are stepping up to the challenge to address.
Recently the American Institute of Architects (AIA) released their 4th quarter Home Design Trends Survey for 2016. The report showed a continuing trend in demand for accessibility, adaptability and universal design features. The top 4 features that this generation is looking for in their bathroom are:
- Adaptability / Universal Design For Bathtubs and Showers
- Shower Stall without Tub
- Larger Walk-In Showers
- Radiant Heated Floors
