Homeowners need to adapt and renovate their homes to future proof their life there for many reasons – be it disability, ageing, mobility or just sustainability. With the cost of care and assisted living facilities skyrocketing, more people than ever are choosing to stay in their homes and instead live in familiar surroundings and comfort. Refresh Renovations Crawley work on a variety of home renovations but increasingly are seeing demand for accessibility solutions and adaptations.
Mobility and safety can be implemented in to any property but really should be done on a bespoke basis in order to deliver adaptations that work not just for your home but also your needs. Refresh Crawley offers a whole host of home accessibility services, including:

There is a common misconception that home adaptations need to be large in scale and scope but there’s plenty that can be done without architectural intervention. Small changes can be to replace fixture and fittings with lower, easier access and easy-grip products and the installation of non-slip flooring and grabs rails. Many people opt for small switches before taking the plunge for bigger shifts. Recent home adaptation renovations have seen the installation of smart tech to aid living circumstances, such as smart lights, smart locks and security intercoms.
The cost for home adaptations will vary greatly depending on your requirements. Small changes can be made for minimum budget but full accessibility modifications do cost more – with outdoor ramps costing anywhere from £1,000 - £5,000, and widening doorways averaging around £800. The most expensive home renovation is extensions, which are estimated around £1,200 - £2,000 per square metre of floor space. In order to provide an accurate quote for your home accessibility project, a Refresh Renovations Consultant will visit your home for an inspection to discuss and scope out the work at hand.
Councils and local authorities often offer grants and funds to support people living at home if they require extra care. An assessment will need to be carried out to confirm eligibility, and if funds are allocated, Refresh Crawley can use these to help cover the cost of your home adaptations. We can also help support you with future applications for relevant funds!
