The Open Concept- Will it Gain Popularity?

THE OPEN CONCEPT- A Trend?

 

I asked an American Hero and Medevac Pilot now on wheels what he was  seeking in  a comfortable home here in Asheville-    “ Are YOU  up for a 'stair-free delight'?”  We had to laugh at the euphemism. But, in truth,   planning  a home that is both functional and aesthetically-pleasing is not really a laughing matter.

Think about it: As you envision your life 10, 20, 30 or more years down the road- would getting around your own home easily be on your list of priorities?  Having all your basic amenities- master suite and spa, gourmet kitchen and dining- in the open-space concept easy to enjoy and all on one floor-  YES! Thiscould be a “good-thing”.

DESIGN FOR MORE  ALL ON THE MAIN FLOOR (it's sheer poetry!)

I read an article today that pointed out that the market of technology for Post-50-People is expected to grow from $2 billion to $20 billion in 2020. "It's tech to help you improve and manage your life," according to expert, Mary Furlong.  Now, consider  how Main Floor Living Design could work across the generations.

This design has many advantages. In terms of features and benefits  the option of aging-in-place might be a powerful choice for you. Here you would focus on specifics: age-friendly products , age-friendly homes, and ideas for feathering nests . Here, a universal design strategy can work for today and into the future. It may be one of the wisest retirement investing choices you make.

NOTE: Convenient  and accessible- - A recent poll for AARP says real convenience in terms of interior spaces and design is important to older adults and those planning for an independent future in decades to come.
