5 Ways To Make Your Home More Comfortable

We all struggle as time passes and what once felt so familiar starts to feel foreign. Whether you’re in the house where you’ve lived for decades or a new apartment, you should make sure the amenities are up-to-date with your needs. Not sure where to start? Here are five areas to consider.

1. Kitchen Cabinets/Refrigerator

You don’t want your cabinets to be bare, but you also can’t have everything overstocked and hidden behind too many other cans and containers. From the cabinets above your counters to those lower fridge shelves, it’s not realistic to stay hunched over or on your tip toes for endless minutes while you search for the thing you need. Consider adding false backs to the highest cabinets, or at least getting a couple lightweight grabbers to help you navigate your food storage.

2. Tables

Catching the corner of a coffee or end table in your shin or thigh can throw the whole day off. If you haven’t switched to rounded furniture, get corner guards to make those wooden edges a little more forgiving. Scan your living and bedroom for 90% angles and then get those things covered. 

3. Glassware

Dry skin and arthritic fingers make it easy to drop smooth object, and drinking glasses are the last thing you want falling on the kitchen floor. If you don’t want to buy a new set of cups, consider some type of textured adhesive. A do-it-yourself alternative would be to put rubberbands around cups that need a little grip. Just a few should do the trick and make it much easier to keep those glasses clasped.

4. Bathroom

If there’s one room in the house you can’t avoid, it’s your bathroom. Handrails for the shower are a must-own, but that’s not the only place where you might need a little help. Look into an elevated toilet seat with handles to help you get up and sit down. Adding a few inches of height to the toilet will take a lot of the strain off your knees that you might be feeling as you try to get situated. 

Just like with your table, those bathroom counters might be in need of some corner softening. Take a look around and see what could be a little safer and more user-friendly. 

5. Shoe Storage

You don’t want to leave sneakers and slippers scattered throughout the house, but you also don’t want to hide them too far out of reach. With a decent shoe organizer at a reasonable height, you can keep everything near and avoid the clutter. If possible, store the shoes within leg’s distance of a chair so stepping into your footwear isn’t an all-morning affair. 

Little details are what make your home your home, but they also can become cumbersome at a certain point. Do whatever you can to ensure the details of your living situation are actually working in your favor and not holding you back.
