Your home is quite truly, your comfort zone. An inviting bed, colours that calm you down and that cosy corner you can call your own. But with everything that comes with old age, these things aren’t enough to make them feel at ease. Even though it might be a necessity, we get that it’s not an easy thing to redecorate your house entirely. So here are a few simple suggestions to make the elderly feel comfortable in their homes.

Some mellow forms could be good for the pantry area or a couple of brainstorming areas but for regular workspaces, they could be too jarring and often distracting. Unsuitable colours Stay away from bright red, yellow and green combination, violet and purple. Although red is a colour which is stimulating, it can be overpowering. It will be good to avoid greys and pure white. While grey can make the people feel gloomy, pure white can reflect light and the glares could cause eyestrain and headaches. On the other extreme, avoid dark blue and green as they eat up light and produce a very dull effect. Good bets Primary and light colours could be mentally enlightening and hence […]

You may even have to make a few changes in the bathrooms to make them elderly-proof / accident resistant / less accident prone. Shower The old tubs may not be of much help.
