Clients having a home built in an Atlanta 55+ community is like watching a kid in the candy store….choices and more choices. First is finding the Active Adult community where you like the floor plans and a location of where you want to live. From there it’s choosing a floor plan and a lot that works for you. Next is the candy store….choosing all things that go into your new home and make it yours….all the flooring, cabinetry, and finishes. In Active Adult communities, builders include features that the aging client wants such as one level homes, large open spaces for family and friends to gather, and optional outdoor space.
Today builders have simplified the process of building. When it is time to chose what goes in the home they have design centers with everything in one place to choose from. From the tiles for the shower to the faucet at the kitchen sink all the choices can be seen together in one setting with a professional to work with you making your choices.
Since the Active Adult client is making the choices for the home, it reflects their taste and lifestyle. If the client want an informal dining area a more causal light fixture can be chosen. Outdoor people can choose a screened porch. The home can include features that will allow the 55+ client to age in place such as large frameless showers with a bench. These features allow client to personalize their home and plan for the future.
