Research Reiterates Point: More Boomers Want to Age in Place


A wonderful friend sent me a clipping last week from a recent issue of Kitchen & Bath Design News Magazine. I wasn’t totally shocked when I read what I’ve been saying for years now: Baby Boomers – more than any previous generation – are planning to stay in their current homes long term.

Remodeling kitchens, bathrooms and more give these Boomers the ability, in many cases, to avoid undesirable alternatives like moving elsewhere or eventually ending up in a nursing home. A whopping 53 percent of kitchen designers polled as research for the article said they’re doing more kitchen remodels for so-called “older clients” than they were five years ago.

You can find the article on page 11 of the digital edition of the magazine here
