I have a friend who’s blind and has limited mobility. She often asks me for help navigating her home, but I can see that it’s not always easy for her to get around. When she needs something from the kitchen or living room, she has to call out to me and ask what it looks like so that I can describe it to her in detail. This can be frustrating because sometimes she needs more than one item at once—for example, if she wants me to bring over some pots and pans while also getting the dish soap out of the cupboard above them. Or maybe she’ll ask me where something is twice before realizing that we’re standing right next to one another but facing opposite directions (which happens more often than you’d think). It can be downright difficult for people with visual impairments or limited mobility when their homes are cluttered with items that are hard for them to navigate around safely or easily reach without assistance from others (who might not always be available).
Make sure all your items are in reach, even for the people who need a little help.
If you’re like me, there are times when it’s hard to find things in your house. This can be frustrating and make you feel like an eyesore. But there are some simple ways to keep your house from looking like an eyesore:
- Make sure all items are within reach for everyone. If someone needs help getting something down from high up, then put the item lower down so they can reach it themselves! This will save time searching for things as well as make life easier for people who need assistance reaching higher places.* Keep things organized so you don’t have to search for them later on.* Keep items in the same place every time (and don’t forget where those places are).
Make sure the floor is clear of clutter.
A clear floor is essential to creating a welcoming space. If you want to make sure your home doesn’t look like an eyesore, then it’s important that you keep the floor clear of clutter. This makes it easier for people who are visiting your home or apartment to walk around without tripping over things and getting injured in the process.
It also makes it so that if someone wants to get into one of their rooms, they won’t have to climb over something first before reaching their destination!
Keep furniture to a minimum and make sure it’s easy to move around.
When it comes to furniture, less is more. Keep your living space clear of unnecessary objects and keep the things that are there easy to move around. This way, if you need to rearrange the room or bring out extra chairs for guests, it won’t take much effort at all!
- Make sure your furniture is easily accessible by making sure there are no obstacles in the path between where people sit and where they stand when getting up from their seats (for example: plants or other decorative items). If something does get in their way, don’t be afraid to move it out of the way temporarily until after everyone has left; this will make things much easier for yourself later on when cleaning up after them!
- Try not having any tables with legs–they can get knocked over easily by accident while moving around throughout your house so instead try setting everything down onto flat surfaces like counters or tabletops instead! You’ll save yourself lots of frustration later on down line if this happens so don’t worry too much about style points here either–just think practicality first before anything else!
Keep piles of things off the floor and out of sight so that your home doesn’t look like an eyesore.
A pile of stuff is a sign of disorganization, and it can be hard to move around in your home if you have piles everywhere. Piles also make your place look messy and unkempt, which may make guests feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Plus, if someone has mobility issues or limited vision, piles can be dangerous for them to navigate through. And lastly (but perhaps most importantly) having too many things lying around on the floor makes your house look like an eyesore!
Store things on shelves or in drawers instead of on the floor or in piles that take up space on tables and counters.
- Store things on shelves or in drawers instead of on the floor or in piles that take up space on tables and counters.
- Keep a clean, organized home by putting items back where they belong as soon as you are done with them. For example: if your kids have toys out, put them away when they’re done playing with them so you don’t have to deal with an eyesore later on!
Don’t use a lot of expensive decorations or knickknacks.
The more you have, the harder it is to keep things clean. If you’re an avid collector of knickknacks and decorations, try to scale back on what you display. It’s better to have one or two pieces that mean a lot to you than an entire shelf full of stuff that looks good but doesn’t serve much purpose (and isn’t helping your house look like an eyesore).
If possible, choose items that are functional as well as decorative–you may not think about it now but if something breaks down later on in life when money is tight or time is scarce, having useful things around can be crucial!
An accessible home can be beautiful, clean and simple
- When it comes to home decorating, there are many different styles and approaches. Some people prefer a minimalist look that’s clean and simple, while others might prefer a more ornate approach with lots of color and texture.
- Regardless of what you like, it’s important to make sure your home is accessible and organized so that you can live comfortably in it.
And that’s it! Your home can be beautiful and accessible, without the need for expensive decorations or knickknacks. It all comes down to keeping things simple and making sure they’re easy for everyone to reach.
