Universal Design

Universal Design is a broad topic that encompasses the design of environments to include parking, walkways, entrances, kitchen bath and storage areas to allow the use by people to the largest extent, without the need for customized remodeling or special "accessibility" products. Entrances, bathrooms and kitchens prove to be the most challenging in terms of accessibility.
