Brighton and Worthing Home Adaptations and Accessibility Builders

Home adaptations for disability mobility and ageing in place

Whether you have a physical disability or are approaching your winter years, you can still maintain your independence by getting your home renovated by a Brighton Home Adaptation and Accessibility Builder. Assisted living communities can be very costly, ranging from £500-£1,500+ per week in the UK, and with just 7% of UK homes being considered “accessible” (English Housing Survey 2014-15); it is invariably going to be much more cost-effective to make changes to your property instead. It’s never too early to consider preparing your home for your continued ease of use into old age, and Refresh can help you do just that!

What type of home adaptation services are offered by Refresh?

What are some popular home adaptations options in Brighton & Worthing? 

There are many ways homeowners prepare their home for ageing in place, or to cater to wheelchair and disabled family members. Small changes include replacing fixtures and fittings for easy grip alternatives such as touchless taps, and bar-style kitchen handles or installing grab rails and non-slip flooring around the home for safety. Mobility modifications include widening door frames, installing wet rooms or walk-in baths, and lowering kitchen cabinetry. Some also choose to add single story extensions to create a larger ground floor space containing all essential facilities, along with additional accessibility adaptations such as outdoor ramps. We are also seeing the implementation of integrated home tech to improve security and monitor safety with items such as smart lights, security intercoms, and smart locks.

How much do ageing in place home adaptations cost in Brighton & Worthing?

The cost for home adaptations will vary greatly depending on your requirements. Small changes like replacing flooring and adding smart tech can be done with minimal investment. Accessibility modifications tend to cost a little more with an outdoor ramp coming in between £1,000-£5,000+* depending on construction materials and finish and widening doorways coming in at an average for around £800+* per doorway depending on structural complexity. Larger scale modifications such as single-storey extensions will require more budgetary consideration, with costs estimated at around £1,200-£2,000 per square metre* for a basic build cost. 
*These costs are rough estimates only and are subject to change. For a quote accurate to your project, please get in touch with a Refresh Renovations Consultant.

Will I qualify for a disability grant? 

Whether you are modifying your property to improve disabled accessibility, or for ageing in place, the first step in finding out what sort of financial help you may receive is to arrange a free care needs assessment from your local council. If eligible, the council has a duty to help and provide support, which can include disability equipment up to the cost of £1,000 provided for free. For further support, a means-tested disability grant can be applied for which can be used to cover a wide range of home adaptations. Your Renovation Consultant can help assess your requirements and take care of any additional support applications.

Why Refresh?

Refresh takes all the pressure away from the homeowner during the renovation process, by managing the entire process, scheduling and tracking the project, utilising skilled and reliable tradespeople, and taking care of any required consents or planning applications. Your Refresh Renovation Consultant will be your single point of contact, allowing you to relax and enjoy the renovation process while completing your project on time and within budget.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local Full Home Renovation renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Full Home Renovation renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your Full Home Renovation consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Full Home Renovation consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your Full Home Renovation consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your Full Home Renovation consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local Full Home Renovation consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
