Aging In Place
According to a recent AARP survey, Data shows that 77 percent of adults 50 and older want to remain in their homes for the long term. To accomplish that, many homeowners across Hampton Roads need to make home modifications to ensure a safe and functional aging-in-place design.
Hatchett Design Remodel offers a variety of home modifications. From spacious, functional kitchen modifications and luxurious bathroom modifications to aging-in-place additions & in-law suites, we have built them all since 1960.

Aging-In-Place Home Modifications
To “age in place”, many Hampton Roads homeowners are choosing to make home modifications to their main living areas to make their residences safer and easier to navigate.
The most common home modifications occur in the kitchen and bathroom as those are the places where many hazards and obstacles occur. As Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists, we seamlessly integrate functionality and design in our kitchen remodels and bathroom remodels.
Kitchens are especially critical in designing a space to allow you to remain in your home for as long as possible. The kitchen is a part of daily living, where we spend a lot of time. It can also be a space of possible hazards if not designed with a universal design in mind. When redesigning your kitchen, if you are contemplating remaining in your home for years to come, you should consider an aging-in-place or universal kitchen design.

Aging-In-Place Additions and In-Law Additions
With the cost of healthcare on the rise, many senior adults are looking to live in their homes for as long as independent living is comfortable. The increased cost of retirement community living options encourages other senior adults to create a space for independent living as they age in their own homes or as a home addition with close relatives. This multi-generational living is increasing across the nation and here in Hampton Roads.

To accommodate a home for a multi-generational family, many homeowners are remodeling their homes with an aging-in-place addition. Aging in place is the ability to live in the home of your choice as safely, independently, and comfortably as possible. These home additions designed for senior relatives are often referred to as an in-law suite.
There are several specifications that you may want to consider in the design of your new in-law suite addition. Our design team, being Certified Aging in Place Specialists, has found these design elements important in the creation of an in-law suite that will be functional and accommodating for years to come.
Overall Floor Plan and Design
It’s important to select safe flooring options for an aging-in-place addition. Select flooring that is not prone to slips and trips to prevent falls.
Hallways Doorways and Entryways
- Ensure hallways are well-lit and void of flooring that could cause slipping or tripping to prevent falls.
- Keep doorways a minimum of 36 inches, but wider is better to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs.
- Design at least one entry point without steps. Ideally include a cover for easier transfer inside and outside during inclement weather.
- Provide appropriate lighting at the entry point, especially to illuminate the front door lock. Sensor lighting is a nice touch to have access to outside lights whether the light switch was turned on or not.
Aging-In-Place Remodel Budget Expectations
Given the various project types and sizes that Hatchett Design Remodel creates, we have put in a great deal of time to provide budget expectations for the various key areas of remodeling. One of our Design Consultants will be able to provide you with a much more accurate range based on your specific remodeling project once they have seen the space and heard more details from you. Remodeling Magazine’s Cost versus Value Report is a great reference when considering budget expectations for home remodeling projects. We hope you will find the ranges below to be helpful for planning purposes.

In this stage, the homeowner visits one of our showrooms, reviews the design plan and selects the products and materials for their renovation.
We will visit the homeowner’s home again to review the step-by-step plan of the construction phase, confirm measurements & materials, and answer any questions before we start the build.
Hatchett takes every step necessary to streamline the final stage of construction – from daily communication to daily clean-up.

Hatchett Design did a complete kitchen and living room remodel for us. By far they were the best contracting firm we have ever worked with. Initial design team very responsive to our ideas and provided a great plan. Our Project manager was the best: On-site almost daily and always keeping us constantly informed of what was happening on the project, and proposed schedule changes. Most important, I can’t say enough about the craft team. Their attention to detail constructing the kitchen, right down to perfect moldings, was exceptional!!! A+ rating for this team…will definitely use them for future projects.
