Maryland Bathroom & Kitchen Remodeling for Seniors
Bathrooms and kitchens are the two most frequented places in a house. They are also the two most dangerous and frustrating to navigate for someone using mobility aids or simply lacking strength, balance and agility. At Freedom Mobility, we offer several remodeling services that can make your bathroom and kitchen safe and easy to use, giving you or your loved one more enjoyment and independence. Our Maryland bathroom and kitchen remodeling experts specialize in accessibility and comfort. We come to your home to analyze your environment and identify areas that could use improvement. We perform kitchen and bathroom remodeling for seniors in Annapolis, Glen Burnie, Towson, Hanover, Owings Mills, Columbia and many other locations throughout Maryland.
Doorways in most modern homes are generally wide enough for most day-to-day activities, but they were not designed with wheelchair users in mind. And if you live in an older home built in the 20th century, you probably find doorways way too skinny even for someone not using any mobility aids. If you or your loved one needs a little more room to comfortably navigate your doorways, Freedom Mobility can assist. In most cases, we can add the needed space by installing specialized hardware. If necessary, we can remove the door casing, widen the entryway and install a brand-new door frame wide enough for your intended use.
Shower & Bath Replacement
A bathroom is one of those places where people like to enjoy their privacy. Unfortunately, for someone who has limited mobility, poor balance or muscle weakness, the bathroom can also be a very dangerous place. From the risk of slipping on wet surfaces to the strain of getting in and out of the tub, using the bathroom without any assistance may not seem possible for some people.
At Freedom Mobility, one of our goals is to help you regain independence while feeling safe in your own bathroom. We achieve this through a variety of bathroom remodeling solutions that create a comfortable and safe bathing environment. Whether your situation requires a walk-in bath tub, power bath, bath lift, or an easy-access shower, we can recommend the best option and install it. Many bathrooms are not very spacious, but we will work with your space and make the best possible use of it.
Sink & Toilet Replacement
When you are in a wheelchair, something as simple as washing your hands can become a difficult task. Most sinks are mounted on tall vanities that not only have no leg room to accommodate a wheelchair, but make the faucet difficult to reach. Thankfully, our Maryland staff is experienced in recommending the best solutions for your sink and toilet needs. We will find the safest, most comfortable product and make sure it is professionally installed.
Cabinet Design & Replacement
Kitchen cabinets are typically installed in two rows: lower and upper. Unfortunately, when you are in a wheelchair, upper cabinets become virtually useless, as you are unable to reach that high. The ideal kitchen for a wheelchair user would have plenty of space to move around, low counters, comfortable access to the sink and plenty of storage on the lower level. At Freedom Mobility, we solve these and many other problems for our clients.
Our team knows many great design ideas to make your kitchen a pleasure to use. Here are just some of the things we can do to improve usability and accessibility of your Maryland kitchen:
- Widen kitchen aisles and install appliances at lower levels
- Change the counter height
- Install a single-lever faucet
- Install shallow sinks
- Move the sink’s drain to create knee space
- Install a “Lazy Susan” for easy storage
- Move outlets and switches to the front of the counter
We use a variety of new technological advances to make your kitchen easily accessible and maximize the independence, convenience and changing abilities of all household members.
Move or Remodel?

If it’s just a few obstacles that concern you in regard to safety and independence, contact a professional specializing in Maryland home remodeling for the elderly. The chances are good, we will be able to help you continue enjoying the comfort of your home for years to come.
