Imagine going from one room of your home to the next and the next without ever bumping into, knocking over, or breaking … anything. Every room’s well-lit and organized. There’s a nice balance of color contrast. It all feels custom made just for you and your level of vision. Well, this doesn’t have to live only in your imagination. Let’s make things easier to see, prevent injuries and make your home fit your needs, by making some simple changes. First of all, you don’t have to break the bank. Look for the simplest and most cost-effective ways to customize your living space.
Sometimes, just rearranging furniture or adding lighting can make a tremendous difference. Moving or getting rid of low tables, tables with sharp, pointed edges and all clutter goes a long way toward avoiding injuries, too. Keep delicate or valuable objects out of common pathways and areas so they are less likely to be knocked over or broken.
