It's increasingly common for family members to take care of aging family members or loved ones with disabilities at home, in hopes of delaying the point at which they must live in a nursing home or long-term care facility. To make it easier to care for your family members (or enable someone to care for you), consider building a custom home that's conducive to caregiving. Here are a few things to keep in mind when designing your home.
One of the great things about building your own home is that you get to individualize every aspect of the design, including the flooring. If you're in the process of choosing the flooring, you might think that you need to choose different flooring for each room of the house.

One of the great things about laminate flooring is that it comes in a wide variety of color and design options, which means you can get a different look throughout the house.
