Aging in place design is hot topic among the Murfreesboro real estate world and offers many benefits for homeowners. While many of the features and amenities you find within this style are geared toward mature adults, the homes are also of interest to young professionals and many family types. 

With aging in place design, you can have a home with a unique design among a planned community that will remain stylish and convenient for future years.

When searching for homes for sale in Murfreesboro that have aging in place features, there are several items to consider. According to National Association of Home Builders, there are many details to examine when purchasing a new home.

In terms of the outside of the home, it should be low-maintenance in most areas including landscaping, decks and the home’s exterior. Within the interior of the home, points of entry should be wider and the overall floor plan should be one level with accommodating details such as well-lit areas and non-slip flooring.

Open floor plans are key in aging in place design and the areas between a living space and kitchen is where much activity takes place on a daily basis. With this in mind, the kitchen area will have many unique aspects among the cabinets and countertops along with appliances that have easy to use controls and operating functions.
