The terms “aging in place” and “single-floor living” are popping up with new regularity. In fact, given the age and size of the baby-boomer generation, it’s not surprising to learn that market demand for one-story homes is on the rise. All that is to say, homebuyers, designers, and builders are thinking ahead. David K. Warfel is one such designer. Author of “Lighting for the Long Term” (pp. 38-43), Warfel lays out the reasons why effective lighting is increasingly important as our eyes age and our balance wanes. Focusing on the kitchen, he illustrates the details of a lighting-design plan based on years of industry research. His claims are compelling, as are the ways in which he manipulates smart technologies to support human health and well-being. Aging-in-place specialist Holly Hall is one of three designers selected to tackle the remodel of a problem bath. Given her expertise, Hall planned the space for an older couple facing the prospect of compromised mobility. Architect Paul DeGroot was tasked with a redesign suitable for a young couple with room to grow, and Kathryn Rogers satisfied the criteria of a single professional looking to up the resale value of her home. “One Bathroom, Three Ways” (pp. 54-61) teases out the big-picture moves and nuanced selections made in response to these fictionalized needs. The results are sensitive, thought-provoking, and wildly transformative. United States Green Building Council (USGBC) educator Annette Stelmack pro- vides guidelines for choosing ethically sourced building materials that produce healthy, durable interiors. With 40 years as a sustainability consultant to her credit, Stelmack is expert at vetting products with proven environmental performance; she routinely specs finishes and furnishings that meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification requirements. In “Healthy Kitchens and Baths” (pp. 28-33), she makes recommendations for verifiable brands of flooring, counter- tops, cabinetry, and tile. Of course, no Kitchens & Baths issue would be complete without a remodel-on- a-tight-budget story. Next-generation builder Arthur “Art” Peychev takes on the ever-popular task in “Wood on White” (pp. 50-53). For just $19,000, he manages to vastly improve a kitchen’s functionality and add custom details that make the space sing. The first of his own designs to come to fruition, it is a study in the efficacy of simplicity. The following stories are intended to be multigenerational in their appeal. No matter the client, no matter the budget, no matter the room, it’s always smart to design with longevity in mind. —Kiley Jacques, design editor 12 FINEHOMEBUILDING.cOM Photo: leslie santarina H287EN.indd 12 9/11/19 3:41 PM H287EN.indd 9/11/19 3:59 PM pg 13 - (BlacK) (Cyan) (Magenta) (Yellow) Shingle for BEAR CREEK LUMBER The Last Time !
