With Independence by Design from DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen, you can unwind in a home that is not only a reflection of you, but also a reflection of your lifestyle. Our design professionals create safe and independent living environments while fulfilling your individual needs with top-quality products and professionals you can trust.

From start to finish, DreamMaker’s design/build approach gives confidence in the finished project. Your Hartford, New Haven, or Middlesex county home can be just as adaptable as you are — it should be able to accommodate the changing needs of your family, your friends and guests as they get older or deal with physical challenges. We can design and install features that can be added to your kitchen and bathrooms that promote the safety and comfort of all inhabitants, regardless of age or ability.

It starts with great design

With DreamMakers Independence by Design, our designers have a deep understanding of aging-in-place principles and can consult with you every step of the way to make sure your living areas are safe and functional, yet stylish and beautiful.

Accessible Kitchens

Accessible or Universal kitchens are built to accommodate everyone! Remodeling your kitchen to the standards of universal design allows you to stay in your home through all seasons of life and welcome guests who may have special mobility needs.

Universal design also is great for children who are active in the kitchen and cannot reach the light switch. Choosing a universal kitchen creates a safe environment that accommodates all walks of life in a comfortable yet stylish fashion. Considerations for fully accessible kitchens include:

  • Multiple counter heights and materials
  •  Cooktops and sinks with legroom for seated users
  • Lever-style or touch operated faucets and door handles
  • Full pull-out drawers
  • Open storage and organizers

Allow our DreamMaker design experts to enlighten you about the many products and services we offer to help create safe, independent living situations. DreamMaker remodeling experts are here to help achieve the highest level of living no matter the budget or the request.
