The One About Mobility

The One About Mobility

The Modern Mobility Bathroom was our most recent foray into accessible design. This is something we have always been passionate about, and we make sure to keep on top of current accessible trends and best practices. We decided to give our readers a deeper look into what makes the Modern Mobility Bathroom an accessible remodel and why we chose accessibility for this design.

Lists make everything easier. Even grocery shopping becomes a gentle breeze when you have everything planned out and jotted down before you take the trip. Lists also take up a lot of free time, giving you a mental boost when you’re bored out of your skull. Of all the things a list can do, it can get you organized and keep you serious, and that’s what we’re all about at LindenCraft.

That depends on the owner/s of the bathroom. Any remodel design needs to fit the desires, wants, and needs of the homeowner. The truth is, we all get older. We all go through rough changes, through events we have no control over, and many of us are born with mobility difficulties. Our homes are supposed to grow with us, adapt around us, and reflect us as closely as possible.

Restoration and Upcycling for Decoration

Restoration and Upcycle Blog

Ah! There’s nothing like the smell of a yard sale! Well, maybe once you’ve cleaned and repurposed your finds. Upcycling old furniture, art, tools, and every household items gives you an amazing arsenal to use as decoration! For creative people everywhere old abandoned windows and unhinged doors are like blank canvasses. Thrift stores and yard sales are a DIYer’s best friend. The amount of potential they exert is nothing short of endless.

There are many other items that go up in design value once they’re restored. We here at LindenCraft love an upcycle project because it is a great opportunity to be creative with what’s available (and it’s fun). You can never waste free time by being creative and every brain could use a mini-vacation. Everything from lightbulbs to doorknobs can turn your home into a well designed treasure chest. Coming up with intricate ways to reuse old masterpieces is also a great creative outlet.

Creating a Personal Safe Space

Creating a Special Space

Stress often controls and dictates how we navigate the world. It’s a scary fact, especially for people who suffer under the weight of multiple causes of stress and very little relief. While stressful days can be a small nuisance for some, there are many people who deal with highly negative and troubling side effects. Most causes for stress aren’t easily driven away with the snap of a finger, unfortunately, and so small steps must be taken. Keeping a space specifically for cooling down can help negate those negative feelings.

A safe space is exactly what it sounds like: a place for a person to relax, feel safe, and breathe a little. Different people will require different types of safe spaces, opening up a whole world of potential options.

What makes quality so important in a remodel?

Quality and The Barn Door

That’s simple: quality is what determines the lifespan of your remodel. Your new kitchen, bathroom, or basement cannot survive on creative genius alone (though it would be great if they could). They need materials that are solid, items that are put together sturdily, and potential for longevity. A cheap, terribly applied counter will only last through so many chopped onions before the whole thing collapses.

Quality is what stands between spending hard earned money on a remodel and having to shell out more money to fix it. A remodel should give you the space of your dreams while satisfying both your budget and your fantasies. It should leave you feeling accomplished and comfortable.

The more space, the better. That's not to say that a large, open floor plan is a requirement for comfortable living. There are plenty of people in tiny homes who are both content and in love with their small design. We're talking about utilizing the space you have, and the potential space, to create easily navigated areas.
