    Design the Best Life at Home for you and your loved ones.

Most New Jersey remodeling contractors do not modify your space with your unique health needs in mind. Our design experts can help.

We offer a proven design process for prioritizing disability modifications to create a livable home for you, all the way through partnering you with a certified local remodeling contractor to complete your home renovation. 

Why Design First?

Your needs are complex. We understand your specific disability requires a unique solution. Design your best life at home so you can remain safe and independent.

We are healthcare professionals and accessible design experts.

Our dedicated team of home improvement specialists will lovingly guide you through the process of designing and remodeling your home to allow you or your loved ones to live independently. Our years of experience have shown us what an important role home design plays in keeping someone healthy, happy, and independent.
