You might have been living with a disability for many years now or maybe you have recently become disabled but with both of these its quite possible that the rooms within your home are not planned out in the most convenient way for you, while still being comfortable enough for any other members of the household.
Understandably, many homes have limited options in the way that you can arrange furniture so that you’re happy with the room while getting the most from the space that the room provides.
Its not always down to rooms being small either, sometimes a room can be shaped so that it will only provide you with a couple of options to position furniture.
There are homes though that may have the potential to make mobility much easier for you if you spend a little time planning so that furniture is positioned for the whole room to be comfortable for all that will want to use that room, while still allowing you to pass through the room easily, and to reach anything that is important to you and that needs to be close by to aid you with your mobility.
Ideally you should look at each room of your home, including hallways, entrances, even a conservatory as of course this is an extension of your home.
Although you might not have considered checking each room to see how you can improve the layout for your mobility at home, it might be the case that after you have checked your home that there is nothing that you can actually have moved around or removed and this is fine
It may be that you already have furniture and items positioned quite well or that the room just doesn’t lend itself very well to a shuffle around of things and that you’re best off leaving things as they are.
This may be true for one of your rooms, some of the rooms or the whole home, but its worth the small amount of time that it takes to see if there is any way that you can have the layout of the room so that mobility for you is as easy and obstacle free as it can be.
