This is the basic list I started with for our remodel. I copied and pasted it from a website, but didn’t record the internet address so cannot reference it. It’s a good starting point for any project.
ACCESSIBILITY RECOMMENDATIONS WHEN BUILDING
Wide doorways with lever handles
High and elongated toilets
Enough room in bathroom to maneuver wheelchair to toilet
At least one no stair entry or entry that can be ramped easily (estimate 1 foot of ramp length for each stair inch of height)
Cabinets in kitchen that can be easily altered (sink and stove access)
Kitchen prep area lower than countertop – can be as simple as pull-out cutting board.
Some closet rods reachable from a seated position.
More than enough outlets and phone jacks – at least some placed higher than normal.
Windows that can be opened easily and from a seated position
